Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire has a thriving High Street with inviting cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants.
The pretty cobbled Hall Square was once the home of fishermen; today you will find the Butter Market Museum, an eclectic display of local artefacts, showing the history of the town's people.
Away from the Yorkshire Dales, Boroughbridge is on the edge of the Vale of York where the hills are gentle and the patchwork of wheat fields and working farmland is lined with hedgerows that teem with wildlife. This area offers gentler countryside compared to the rugged hills of North Yorkshire's two national parks.
The canal and River Ure offer the perfect setting for tranquil walks and picnic spots, an afternoon's fishing or a relaxing boat trip.
There is plenty of family cycling thanks to the flat local terrain and relatively quiet roads and for the cross country cyclist this gentle landscape means you can quickly cover a lot ground along the rolling bridleways.
Boroughbridge is a town of history with three ancient standing stones situated on the outskirts of the town. These are known as The Devil's Arrows, based on the story that they were flung to earth by and enraged Lucifer in an attack on nearby Aldborough. The tallest Arrow is 22ft 6in, topping anything at Stonehenge. A leisurely walk to the next village of Aldborough, situated on the Roman town of Isurium Brigantum, will take you back to Roman times. Two spectacular mosaic pavements remain and there are more finds on display in the Museum.
Equidistant between London and Edinburgh, and right in the heart of North Yorkshire, Boroughbridge was an important staging post offering travellers food, drink and shelter for the night. This tradition of hospitality is still very much alive in the town making it a great base to explore the area and it is within easy reach of Harrogate, York and Leeds too.
The Town has a range of Primary and Secondary Schools and is within close proximity to Queen Marys, Cundall, Queen Ethelburgas and Harrogate Ladies College
"If this were a bar or restaurant, I could imagine spending good money to sit with a meal and a glass of wine, watching boats come and go from the marina in the sunshine. To have that option in a residential property is fairly special. Kingfisher Lodge is presented to the market in a time where we are rightfully thinking about needing more space at home whether that be for flexible working or just having that outdoor space. This wonderful property offers both." - Anthony
