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 towns. 

The Old House falls within the parish of Scosthrop which lies to the north-western edge of Airton, and is the last house in the village on the back road to Settle. Constructed from a former barn in the mid 1980's with no expense spared at the time, the house would now benefit from some updating, nevertheless it has double glazed windows and oil-fired central heating, and offers lots of potential - particularly with the Games Room and Garden Room which would make into a splendid open plan Living Kitchen if the purchaser wished.
