What Tickhill offers for Cottage Breaks
The ruins of Tickhill Castle are one of its landmarks (the castle is set within private grounds and gardens but can be visited on open days), partly originating in the 12th century. Look out for a lovely timber-framed house; this building dates from 1470 and used to house a hospital. The parish church of St. Mary’s is a Grade I Listed building, built from local materials in the early 1100s. A buttercross, or market cross, is where people used to sell their dairy produce. It’s a pleasant village to sit and feed the ducks at the millpond or to follow one of the walking routes nearby. For a lively event, Tickhill Music and Dance Festival promises a good time. A previous festival involved live music, a cycle race, comedy and children’s workshops. Tickhill Scarecrow Festival is another annual event to look forward to.
