The property

Tucked away in a peaceful residential area of the small picturesque town of Silsden is the delightful mid-terrace holiday home, Sunnymede.

The property was fully refurbished for 2022 and is conveniently positioned on the fringes of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, offering an excellent base for outdoor activities and relaxing alike.

Step over the threshold into the handy panelled hallway before moving through into the cosy sitting room to put your feet up.

A well designed kitchen/diner adjoins this space, beautifully appointed with a pastel green and cream interior and equipped with all of the essential amenities to help you feel at home and rustle up a range of delicious meals.

Moving through the property to the first floor, you’ll find two well-presented, good sized bedrooms, kings or twins, with a stylish shower room across the way, providing the perfect sleeping quarters for both friends and families sharing.

A short walk from your doorstep will bring you into the heart of Silsden where you’ll find all the local amenities; fuel a day of excursions with a hearty breakfast at one of the many independent cafes, or end an action packed day with a well deserved beverage at the hostilary of your choice.

Be sure to pack your clubs and spend a peaceful afternoon testing your swing on one of several golf courses in the area or at the handy local driving range, or follow the footpath alongside the glistening waters of the Leeds and Liverpool canal to the nearby market town of Skipton or in the opposite direction through Bingley Five-Rise Locks and onto the UNESCO world heritage site of Saltaire.

If walking seems a bit too energetic there’s always the option to charter a barge.

If history is your thing then Skipton castle, Bolton Abbey or the 17th Century National Trust property of East Riddlesden Hall are all just a stone’s throw away.

The more energetic walkers might like to take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge or would you prefer to cycle the Yorkshire stage of the 2014 Tour de France?

The Pennine way is also on the doorstep - the options for outdoor activities are endless.

For those looking for a more relaxing visit be sure to take a trip to the nearby spa towns of Ilkley and Harrogate with their cafes, gardens and shops, or hop on the direct train to Leeds for a spot of city life.

A trip on the Worth Valley steam railway will take you up to the famous cobbles and historical Brontë Country of Haworth, a lovely way to spend a day.

However you plan to spend your time in Yorkshire, be sure to choose Sunnymede as your base.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 8.5 miles; Ilkley 8.5 miles; Skipton 9 miles.

The pretty town of Silsden, set on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, commands sweeping views of the River Aire and its valley, and has a thriving community with local amenities. Although Silsden was originally an agricultural town, the construction of the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal meant that it later became an important centre for the mill industry, however the local economy is now largely supported by tourism, and it has become a perfect place to stay and explore the local area. Down the Aire Valley lies historic Skipton, known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, a quaint market town boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008, the Academy of Urbanism voted the high street as the best shopping spot in Britain. In the next valley lies Addingham, a thriving, small community with several good pubs serving fine ale and excellent food, a scattering of small shops and a delightful golf course surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the Strid is a must. The Victorian Spa town of Ilkley is also worth a visit, with its wide streets, world-famous Box Tree Restaurant and Bettys Tea Rooms, while Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”. With steam railways offering regular excursions through stunning scenery, canal day trips, castles and pretty market towns all available nearby, Silsden is a wonderful base for touring the Bronte Country and North and West Yorkshire.
