Market watchers will know that only those who lived or worked or had relatives in the Yorkshire Dales National Park were formerly eligible to own Woodlands under the terms of the property's S106. However if you thought you couldn't live the dream you can think again....we're delighted to announce that the occupancy restrictions have very recently changed, making this beautiful home now available to anyone who is taking up self-employment within the YDNP, hence anyone from anywhere who may be thinking of starting up a business at Woodlands. This of course ties in very well with this particular property, where The Mountain Bike Livery has planning to operate as a business, and so opens the door wider for a new slant on this business, particularly with the "Way of the Roses" coast-to-coast cycle route being routed through Appletreewick. For mountain bikers, road cyclists, walker and runners alike, Appletreewick is a destination of choice.

A full copy of the S106 Agreement and its recent amendments is available upon request, but the main points are that the occupier of Woodlands is to be an existing resident of the YDNP, OR be moving into the YDNP to take up full-time permanent employment or self-employment, OR be a former YDNP resident who has close relatives in the YDNP and has a need to move back.

How often have you seen a property for sale with its own private nature reserve?! 'Reynards Gill' is a breathtakingly beautiful pocket of heaven, little known even to locals, extending to circa 2.32 acres to two sides of Woodlands, with a large pond (as yet unlined so only full of water in wet weather), an intriguing cave system, no end of natural flora and fauna and a pattern of small streams with meandering pathways. A robust 15 year Management Plan is in place with Yorkshire Dales National Park, under which they contribute 90% of agreed re-planting, felling and clearance work on the reserve with the possibility to further extend for another 15 years. And as a home, Woodlands offers particularly light and spacious accommodation which is double glazed and pristinely presented, with fabulous views all around. As well as its own immediate gardens, it has a large enclosed dog run, and of course the nature reserve - where better to sit and relax on a summer's evening? 

Appletreewick is a small village 11 miles to the North of Skipton, set within spectacular Yorkshire Dales National Park scenery, with the River Wharfe meandering through the village and some of the county's most renowned walks including the path up to Simons Seat. Although the village is a popular destination for visitors, it is locally better known for its particularly strong community spirit, with a high number of owner-occupiers living in the village and a strong fraternity spirit at both its pubs (The New Inn and The Craven Arms) and many events scheduled at the Church and Village Hall. Appletreewick also boasts the unusual title of 'Britain's Friendliest Village To Drive Through', awarded in 2009 on various merits including "hand waving acknowledgements of friendly driving"! Families living in the village benefit from being within the catchment area for Skipton's Grammar Schools and Upper Wharfedale Secondary School, as well as having a well-endorsed OFSTED Primary School at nearby Burnsall a couple of miles away.

An intensive woodland management scheme has been implemented with 1,200 trees planted under an agreed Yorkshire Dales National Park project. In addition there are more formal lawned gardens and a dog area enclosed within post-and-mesh fencing and dry stone walling, with colourful and well-stocked flower beds. A pathway leads around the house to the south-facing decked terrace which gives a sheltered and secluded sitting area, with steps up to a colourful rockery embankment.
