One of the most sought-after villages in Craven, Gargrave is located 4 miles West of Skipton and is within the catchment area for the well-regarded Skipton Grammar Schools. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and a justifiably popular place to live, Gargrave is entirely on the level and has its own railway station with train services connecting through to Skipton and then onto Bradford and Leeds. Within the village there is a good range of local shops as well as a supermarket, church, three public houses, doctor's and dentist's surgeries, primary school and well-patronised village hall with many community events. There are also sporting facilities including cricket club, football club, tennis and croquet. Alongside three charming village greens, the River Aire meanders through the village, as does the Leeds-Liverpool Canal with its colourful barges and pretty towpath walks.  

Waverley is an attractive and substantial stone-fronted home, conveniently located in the centre of the village. In 2000 the vendors commissioned an architect to custom-design a stunning ground floor extension to the rear of the kitchen which has beautifully opened up the ground floor space to give extra accommodation opening out onto the level rear garden, and in 2004 they built a stone single garage which is accessed from the rear off St Roberts Close. There is central heating from a modern gas-fired boiler and the windows are a combination of double glazed, secondary glazed and original stained/leaded. All the rooms were re-decorated in 2017 and the property is available for early vacant possession if required.
