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!  

Glista Mill, situated on Broughton Road, is a two minute level walk from the railway station (direct trains to Leeds & Bradford) and supermarkets, a five minute level walk to the High Street (either on the canal towpath or pavement) and Bus Station, and is also close to Aireville Park with its recreation areas, swimming pool and gymnasium. Accessed either by a modern lift or by a staircase, Apartment 65 occupies the three floors in the tower and has a video intercom system for visitor entry. Heating is provided by energy-efficient Farho electric panel radiators, installed by the owner in 2014, and the windows throughout are double glazed.
