Known as the 'Gateway to the Dales', Skipton is a thriving and historic market town on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, with strong agricultural connections and a magnificent castle dating back to the 11th Century. Its colourful High Street hosts a market four days a week on the cobbled setts, along with a wide choice of shops, restaurants and public houses. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal runs through the town with its pretty towpath walks and for families there is an excellent choice of schooling at both Primary and Secondary level. Small wonder that in 2014 Skipton was voted by The Sunday Times as the best place to live in Britain, receiving commendations for its "ideal combination of low crime rates, top-class schools and great transport links", and in 2017 the Office of National Statistics revealed that Skipton is officially the happiest place to live in the UK!  

Over the last 18 months the present vendors have carried out an extensive programme of restoration, including new suspended ceilings, re-plastering, upgrading electrics (including new consumer unit), and new kitchen/bathroom fittings. Beautifully presented with stripped pine doors and a high standard of décor and finish throughout, the property benefits from gas-fired central heating and UPVC windows and doors, and is literally ready to move straight into.
