Thornton-le-Dale lies on the the southern edge of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. This picturesque English village has a beck running alongside the main street. The village stocks and market cross are still in existence on the small village green, and from the bridge a splendid view of the thatched cottage can also be seen next to Bridgefoot house.
Thornton-le-Dale is one of the most charming villages in England offering spectacular walks and views, whatever the season either in the village or nearby. Although only a village, Thornton-le-Dale is well worth a visit for its interesting buildings, pleasant walks beside the beck and many footpaths. Thornton-le-Dale lies between Pickering and Scarborough, Malton and Whitby and makes an ideal touring base of the North York Moors and wonderful countryside and coast.
