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".
The 'Rockwood' area is situated on the North-Westerly edge of Skipton and is regarded as one of the town's premier residential areas, close to Aireville Park and with all three secondary schools within walking distance and the High Street under a mile away, but with easy access to the Skipton By-Pass for driving out of town.
