Within Lothersdale Village, there is a church, well-regarded primary school, public house and a village hall offering a range of community activities. The village of Crosshills is just 2.5 miles away, with a wider range of shops, sporting/recreational activities, health centre and a well-renowned secondary school, with Airedale General Hospital just a couple of miles further down the road. The towns of Skipton, Keighley and Colne are approximately 15 minutes drive away. For the commuter, the business centres of East Lancashire, Manchester and West Yorkshire are within comfortable daily travelling distance and Cononley Station is also just 2 miles away, giving regular services through to Bradford, Leeds and London Kings Cross. For the outdoor enthusiast, the Pennine Way runs through Lothersdale Village and the wonderful scenery of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Lancashire Forest of Bowland are but a few miles away.
