I live in a 4 bedroom house with a large garden which gives us lots of strawberries and raspberries in the summer. Tockwith is a quiet and friendly village which is only 10 miles from the centre of York.
The York, Leeds, Harrogate, Scarborough area of North Yorkshire is a beautiful area with something for everyone from history and art to shopping or countryside and I love to show people around.
