Airton is a picturesque Malhamdale village, with the River Aire meandering through and with stunning scenery all around, typifying this area of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Nearby Kirkby Malham (2 miles) has a well-respected primary school, public house and the historic St Michael The Archangel Church, with Gargrave (4 miles) having a range of local shops and social/sporting amenities. A choice of shops and secondary schools are on offer at both Skipton (9 miles) and Settle (6 miles) and Airton falls within the education catchment area for both, with school buses to each town stopping by the gate. There are excellent walks from Scosthrop Manor doorstep - a lovely 2½ mile ramble alongside the river brings you to Malham, and the Pennine Way is just 500 yards from the house. 

One of the finest Grade II Listed properties in Malhamdale, Scosthrop Manor has datestones of 1603 and 1686 with many features pertaining to its Jacobean era including chamfered stone mullion windows and stone ball finials. The property was bought in the early 1900's by a West Yorkshire industrialist for his daughter Miss Garnett-Orme, and after extensive re-modelling it was her home for many years, during which time she received royalty there. 

In more modern times, Scosthrop Manor has been a much-loved family home for the present vendors over the last 25+ years, during which time the house has been further modernised with an oil-fired central heating system with re-conditioned Victorian-style radiators, double glazed windows installed throughout (the front of the house features powder-coated stainless steel double glazing) and pitch pine internal doors.
