Es­tate agent Tim Blenkin says: “In North York­shire, dower houses, manor houses and smaller coun­try houses of that ilk are par­tic­u­larly scarce, largely be­cause the great es­tates have not sold and re­leased prop­er­ties of this stature.

As a re­sult, the care­fully and elab­o­rately con­structed rec­to­ries very of­ten prove to be the best fam­ily houses avail­able. This is true in Nun­ning­ton, where The Old Rec­tory has a dom­i­nat­ing po­si­tion and of­fers splen­did fam­ily ac­com­mo­da­tion.”
