An excellent village centre residential development opportunity in the heart of Ryedale.
The site is situated within the small village of Wilton on the southern fringe of the North York Moors National Park and close to the popular village of Thornton-le-Dale. The property is well placed for access to the road and rail network, with Malton station only 10 miles south, linking to the East Coast Mainline at York and the wider connectivity it provides.

From Wilton it is easy to take advantage of attractive tourist locations including the coastal towns and fishing villages such as Whitby and Robin Hoods Bay. Dalby Forest and the North York Moors National Park both are less than 2.5 miles away.
