Several months ago I saw this lovely medieval moated property on the TV show ‘A Place in the Country’ . I looked at the website but though it unlikely I would visit having no plans to visit Yorkshire at that time.
Last week I did find myself in Harrogate but had forgotten about Markenfield until a picture flashed up on the local TV weather programme.
I then checked the website and was delighted to notice it was open so off we went. We were not disappointed, it is such a beautiful property with a fascinating history. I would urge anyone visiting Yorkshire to visit however the only problem is the limited opening times, a few weeks in May and a few in June.
I was lucky to see this little slice of history but it’s a shame it doesn’t open more often.
