"Typically English" Nun Monkton by steventilly

Nun Monkton Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 40 photos

Nun Monkton is a small rural village a little way out of York. It is so "typically" English, with it's village green, duck pond, maypole, pub, church and river. Basically all you could hope to find in an English village, all bundeled together. All that is missing is hoardes of tourists, which suits me fine.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, peaceful, beautiful, great pub
  • In a nutshell:Lovely place to stop off on the way home from York

    You've no idea how much help by VT members was needed to help me find my way back here for a second look. Time permitting I hope to visit soon -promise not to take a coach load.

    It is nice to see the May Pole still in exsistence, but where do we get the village names from ?? sounds like some kind of monster fish to me

    There's nothing worse than finding out the pub isn't open when you want a cold one! Looks like you were a great tour guide through the greenery here.

    You're right, this looks like the perfect little English village. I hope it stays that way!

    Looks like a lovely village but I'd rather the pub opened early so we could spend more time enjoying a few pints. ;=>

    What a lovely village with an odd name.
