The local area guide to living in Harmby

Situated in the North Yorkshire District of Richmondshire, Harmby is a quaint village and civil parish. History records suggest that The Templars, the most powerful and highly respected of Christian military orders, held land in Harmby from as early as the 12th century. In the 19th century, the village was host to a manor house that has since been transformed into a private home. A chapel was originally attached to the house before being pulled down, and it is believed a monk’s grave is placed below the current building standing there. A Methodist church, built in 1855, is still in use today.

The River Ure runs close-by, with the Harmby Beck flowing directly through the village. Harmby is renowned for its beautiful scenery, with popular nature walks throughout the area, including visits to Harmby’s waterfall, which is an attractive spectacle. For a pit-stop, the Pheasant Inn offers a peaceful, old-fashioned atmosphere, and also licenses the attached caravan park for holiday-goers. Harmby is also home to an old limestone quarry, which is now used to run two caravan sites.
