READING ROOM  - CRATHORNE


The foundations of A Still Life were grown around the Reading Room and we are delighted to call it 'home'. Built in 1897 by Lionel Dugdale to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Silver Jubilee, the Reading Room is very much part of the village's farming community and remains the seat of the present day Lord Crathorne, James Dugdale. The village of Crathorne lies on the Northern periphery of North Yorkshire and is less than 5 miles of the North York Moors National Park. Within an hour of the cities of Newcastle, York and Leeds and just one mile from the A19, Crathorne is surprising accessible. Yarm station is a 5 minute drive from the village and direct trains from Kings Cross, York and Edinburgh operate daily. 

We are lucky to have one of the very best village pubs in the North, The Crathorne Arms . If you wish to round off your day with a delicious evening meal by a roaring open fire or taking in the last of the Summers sun in the quirky courtyard, owners Eugene and Barbara McCoy will extend a warm welcome. The pub is very popular so booking ahead is recommended.
