Skipton is a delightful place to live enabling you to enjoy the best of all worlds. It has been identified as the happiest place to live by the Office of National Statistics and is now the happiest place to shop!

Skipton is a friendly market town with a wide range of local shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. It also hosts a range of events and activities from festivals and fairs to watching or playing sports of all kinds, to joining clubs and societies, going to the cinema or even a night out at the 'Little Theatre'.

As the Gateway to the Dales, the Yorkshire countryside is on your doorstep: you can enjoy walking, cycling, clay pigeon shooting, fishing or horse riding or just take a 'drive' to bask in the glorious scenery and views.
