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!
Just a short and almost level walk from the town centre via a pedestrian footpath linking through to Carleton Road, Burnside House is a development exclusively for the over 55's and benefits from its many facilities, including beautifully tended gardens, sitting room, library area, refreshment facilities, laundrette and the services of the Manager/Handyman once a week. The apartment has a smart kitchen and new shower.
