A contemporary apartment, part of a recent development of a former textile mill situated in an enviable hillside position in the Aire Valley.
A recent large scale conversion from an award-winning developer, Woodlands Mill is set amongst lovely rolling countryside on the outskirts of Steeton.
The property is accessed via a keycode entry point leading into a large entrance with internal feature staircase and a lift.
Set out over the fourth floor of the mill with pleasant views onto the surrounding woods and a small babbling brook, this lovely apartment provides an excellent base for touring this historic and beautiful area.
The apartment comprises a well-equipped, stylish open plan sitting room and kitchen, with delightful soft furnishings including an Italian leather sofa, comfortable armchair and matching footstool.
There are also two full-length picture windows overlooking woodland, plus a modern Smart TV and a living-flame electric fire, providing an inviting, tranquil space to relax in.
There is a separate, contemporary dining room also with a full-length picture window.
The cosy bedroom contains a luxurious king-size bed and adjoins the stylish bathroom, and a large recessed wardrobe and storage space can be found in the hallway.
The main Aire Valley railway line and station is a fifteen minute walk away and provides an excellent service to Leeds in the easterly direction, Bradford to the south, and to the famous Settle-to-Carlisle line heading northwest and visiting the likes of Skipton, Clapham, Settle and parts of Cumbria.
Head into the Yorkshire Dales and discover Grassington, peruse the quirky shops, take in the views or attend one of the many events held throughout the year including the Dickensian Festival in December.
The nearby Leeds to Liverpool canal provides good walking and cycling opportunities, with Skipton just a fifty minute cycle ride away.
Well-known as The Gateway to the Dales, Skipton has a bustling high street which won an award recently for being the best shopping street in Britain and Ireland, and the town has also been voted the best place in Britain to live.
A visit to Ilkley is a must as this spa town is home to Bettys Tea Room and you can wander the lovely streets after enjoying some tea and cake.
Spend some time at the pool and lido and enjoy walks along the River Wharfe through one of the town parks.
Delightful walks can also be enjoyed including the Cow and Calf walk which takes you out into the moors.
Bolton Abbey is a short drive away and is described as Yorkshire’s best day out with a number of cafés, gift shops, picnic spots and the abbey ruins to keep you entertained.
This is an ideal holiday home for that well-deserved break.

About the location
Skipton 6 miles; Ilkley 8 miles; Haworth 10 miles.
The traditional village of Steeton lies in the Aire Valley, near the River Aire and the Leeds to Liverpool canal, just six miles south of Skipton. The village's 17th century heritage is still visible in some of the buildings, with an even greater number remaining from Steeton’s heyday as a 19th century handloom weaving and lead mining centre. The village has a small park, one pub, a corner shop, breakfast-brunch cafe, Cantonese takeaway and is within walking distance of Cross Hills, where a number of old pubs, shops and good restaurants can be found. The nearby mainline railway station has good links to Leeds, Bradford, Skipton and the famous Settle-Carlisle railway line. Nearby Skipton, known as The Gateway to the Dales, has an ancient castle, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. Enjoy a canal trip on a traditional barge or visit the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, which has regular steam train excursions during the weekend. Follow this with a trip on the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway to Haworth and visit the famous Bronte Parsonage.
