Situated approximately three miles south of Skipton, Cononley is a popular village on the banks of the River Aire, surrounded by beautiful open countryside. The village offers a good range of everyday amenities including a general store and post office, primary school, park, sporting facilities and two public houses. The village has its own train station with regular services to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton, making it an ideal base for commuters. 

The current vendors of Madge Bank have fastidiously maintained their home for the last 30+ years and have been at pains to ensure that its inherent Edwardian character has been preserved and enhanced. The original doors have been restored and now have elegant glass handles, the deep ceiling covings have been maintained, and the charming original verandah still provides a lovely seating area which overlooks the village and provides a bird's eye view for village sporting events! The house is heated by a gas-fired radiator system, has hermetically-sealed double glazed windows and is immaculately decorated throughout with early vacant possession available if required.
