Rainton is a village in the Harrogate borough of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated about 6 miles north of Boroughbridge, 5 miles north-east of Ripon and 5 miles south-west of Thirsk. It is a picturesque village with a village green and a maypole. There are approximately 120 houses in Rainton including six listed buildings- several period farm houses, a smithy and a dovecote. The local vernacular building style is sandstone and cobble construction with slate or pantile roof. It is a tranquil North Yorkshire village where life revolves around the many activities at the village hall and the two village pubs.Rainton was a largely agricultural village but since 2000 it has become a more fashionable commuter village, largely due to its close proximity to the A1 road. This in turn has led to a steep increase in property prices which is evidenced by the large number of barn conversions and property renovations. Despite becoming more commuter orientated, Rainton has a strong community spirit, holding Christmas parties for local children, lunches for the retired folk, and a host of other social events including a gardening club.FacilitiesThe village school is based at Baldersby St James and Queen Mary's School is situated just outside the village on the road to Topcliffe.
With the Inspirock international travel planner, Rainton and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
