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!  

A stroll up the High Street and past the historic castle brings you to The Bailey - a short row of Georgian properties, number 5 being the top house which was subsequently extended in Victorian times. In more recent years the house has been taken in hand and thoroughly renovated, so that it now offers stunningly presented accommodation which has both preserved and enhanced its inherent character. There are low wide Georgian doors, an elegant return staircase and a beautiful Oriel window looking across into the castle grounds. The kitchen and bathroom fittings have all been thoughtfully replaced, the rear windows are sliding sash UPVC double glazed and there is gas-fired central heating from a modern combination boiler. In addition to the two storey traditional accommodation, there is a large Cellar, ideal for storage or hobbies. Outside, there is a beautiful south-facing rear garden and on-site parking for 3 cars.
