A beautiful small quiet, tucked away village.
Oswaldkirk is a very small but beautiful place to visit.
It is a really easy to get to from the main roads if you are travelling from far, so there isn't lot's of twists and turns for hours before reaching your destination.
I picked this location as it was close to Malton but at the same time close to drive into the Moors.
So a good central location to a few good towns and places to see but tucked out the way for the peace and quiet.
There isn't or as far as I know wasn't a local shop, the closest was 2 1/2 miles away to the next village but had a really lovely pub 'Malt Shovel'.
The pub and garden is beautiful and the owners were really nice and friendly complimented by a good choice of lovely foods and wine, beer and ciders.
The only downfall is that the roads into Oswaldkirk are B-roads so if you want to go for a walk you can do, but you'll be walking on lanes with a fair bit of traffic and no pavements or banks as most of the lands around seemed privately owned. So if you wanted to go for a lot of walks you'll have to be prepared for lane walking with sharing with traffic. We didn't because we had our dog who bless her didn't like the speed of the oncoming traffic.
The people I saw in the village were all so friendly and polite. At night the place was soooo quiet and the view of the stars were breath-taking because there were no lights on at night, so the night sky shone with stars and the moons.
