Richmond is lovely - ohh richmond castle.

Bedale, Leyburn and Northallerton all lovely market towns.

Darlington good for shopping and nights out.

Tesco Extra in the Garrison

New quarters very good, old quarters well refurbished (and bigger)

Highest pub in the UK close by (but I cant bloody well remember its name - only that we got snowed into it for 2 days - and it was great!!)

V Good primary school and an excellent SN school V nearby (Catterick village)

Easy to get to lots of other places

Scots Corner and Catterick Market

Oh, and Catterick Races

The pub is Tan Hill Inn.

THe Dales are fantastic.
Thai restaurant in Richmond is fab.
Catterick market sells EVERYTHING.
Picnics by the river in Richmond.
Icecreams at Brymores near Masham.
Swimming in the rivers at Masham and Richmond.
Surrounded by beautiful market towns.
York / Leeds close by for big shops, but tbh Darlington is perfectly adequate.
