Canal-side Apartment - Beautiful Views Of Countryside. 2 bathrooms



Updated: 28-Sep-2016
Canalside apartment in Bingley W. Yorks - Near Haworth & Bronte Country, The Dales - Ideal For Walkers, Haworth & Bronte Country, Other Tourist Sites & Tour De Yorkshire cycle race 2015

One bedroom first floor apartment with open plan lounge, large en-suite shower room and separate shower room.. The apartment, which is in a converted woollen mill, overlooks the Leeds/Liverpool canal and is near to the bustling market town of Bingley near the famous Five Rise Locks; there are numerous country walks and it is possible to walk through the countryside to the popular and stylish town of Ilkley - made famous in the song 'On Ilkley Moor Baht'at'. You can view the locks and picturesque countryside which is all around and walk or cycle along the towpath.

The village of Haworth, home of the famous Bronte sisters who wrote 'Jane Eyre' and 'Wuthering Heights', is a short distance away and is one of the most famous tourist destinations in the country. The Bronte parsonage in the village of Haworth, with its cobbled streets and superb moorland scenery, is 'a must' for anyone visiting this part of Yorkshire. The short but pleasant 'Railway Children Walk' will take you to the adjacent village of Oakworth and Oakworth Station which featured prominently in 'The Railway Children' film. Another popular walk is to Bronte Waterfall which Charlotte Bronte described as 'White and Beautiful'.

A popular event in May is the Haworth 1940s Weekend organised by the SSAFA Benevolent Fund and with the proceeds going to Forces' Charities. Haworth village has a great number of visitors during this weekend, many in 1940s costume. A vintage bus service is provided, free of charge, from Haworth station to the top of the village and back to connect with the steam trains which run at 45 minute intervals.

The Utopian village of Saltaire, built by Sir Titus Salt to house his mill workers and now a UNESCO Heritage Site, is close by. Salt's Mill, in the village of Saltaire, contains the famous David Hockney Art Gallery, shops and cafes. Near to the mill is the picturesque Shipley Glen with one of the few remaining funicular tramways in the country. The historic market towns of Skipton with its castle, Harrogate with its spa and famous Betty's Cafe and Halifax with its Piece Hall Market are near.

The adjacent town of Keighley is famous for the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway and there is also the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway situated just outside Skipton. Keighley's Victorian Railway Station has been used in a number of films and television programmes. The beautiful grounds of Cliffe Castle park and gardens with its museum and Art Gallery are ideal for a quiet stroll and during the summer, often hosts recitals by local Brass Bands.

Bingley itself boasts the superb parkland of the St Ive's Estate. and there are a number of golf courses in the surrounding area including St Ive's and Keighley. A popular attraction in July is the Airedale Agricultural (Bingley) Show which can trace its origins to 1862 and is one of the largest one-day agricultural, horticultural, craft and horse shows in Europe. The Show offers an incredible range of things to see and do including show jumping, Shire horses, horticultural and handicraft stalls and of course cattle and sheep from local farms.

In August, Bingley hosts 'Music in the Park' a popular outdoor Music Festival. Headliners in 2014 were The Petshop Boys.

Further down the valley, there is free entry to the National Media Museum in Bradford with its famous giant IMAX screen.

The historic village of Ingleton at the foothills of Ingleborough on the threshold of Yorkshire's beautiful limestone Dales is within easy driving distance and many guests enjoy the Ingleton Waterfalls Walk which offers some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in the North of England. This four mile trail, leads you through ancient oak woodland and magnificent Yorkshire Dales scenery in a series of stunning waterfalls and geological features.

For those who enjoy Real Ale, the local Branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) publishes four local pub guides for the areas of Keighley, Skipton, Settle/Giggleswick and Haworth/Bronte Country. Real Ale lovers will be able to enjoy the delights of brews such as 'Ram Tam' and 'Landlord' from Keighley's local Timothy Taylor Brewery which uses natural spring water from the Pennine Hills in the brewing process. Skipton's Copper Dragon Brewery holds daily tours where visitors can see the bewing process of beers such as Golden Pippin and Black Gold which is brewed using a recipe from restored 19th century brewing records.

In addition to all this, excellent transport links to the major cities of this part of Yorkshire, give easy access to a wealth of other tourist attractions and great shopping, including Harvey Nichols and the famous Victorian Arcade Shopping Centre in Leeds. Theatres in Bradford and Leeds often boast plays and musicals equal to those of the West End: for example, 'Sister Act' at Bradrord's Alhambra theatre in February 2017. Theatres in Leeds and Bradford are walking distance from Bus and Train stations.

The apartment and the surrounding area is an ideal location for couples who want an active or quiet holiday or for those who want to combine both town and countryside. For those without a car or who want to leave the car at home there are excellent transport links close by.

Take away outlets, pub lunches and a variety of restaurants are within walking distance of the apartment and will ensure a complete holiday experience. There is a guest folder in the apartment which gives a wealth of ideas for walks, activities and days out.

About the Owner

We divide our time between our apartment in England and our house on the Costa Blanca. Our apartment is situated on the banks of the Leeds/Liverpool canal and we love to return there after the heat of Spain.

A doddle to the Dales! Best of both worlds!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a brilliant area so close to the countryside but an easy walk to any amenity you should want. 5 Locks is a 'must see' engineering feat of the late 1770s and the open markets of Bingley ( Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) a further short stroll away. Bus/train transport options are practically on the doorstep while your car can be parked safely within the property grounds. The apartment is very comfortable (especially the bed) and provides my 'must haves' for holiday accommodation - wi fi, satellite tv and a washing machine/dryer. A variety of quality eateries are within walking distance or you can use the well equipped kitchen and eat in. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay at Limefield Mill. Hope you managed to see Haworth and the Bronte countryside while you were there. As you say, the location is ideal for people without a car or for those who decide to leave the car at home. There is plenty to see and do and I'll pass your compliments to the cleaner. Hope to hear from you again next year.

Honeymoon Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending our honeymoon at this lovely flat. Modern comfortable and clean with lovely views, it was the perfect place to explore the area. The days spent hiking it was nice to have a comfortable quiet 'home' to return to, and the added bonus of being able to walk along the canal in the evening just minutes from the flat.close by too so a car is not essential.

There is a bus stop 2 minutes walk away that takes you through Bingley itself, Saltaire and Bradford with train stations

Pauline was friendly and polite when I needed to contact her and nothing was too much bother.

We had a wonderful time and highly recommend this flat.

From the Owner

As keen walkers, we find the walks available in the beautiful countryside surrounding the property are ideal. The views from the apartment are fantastic and in the spring and summer, the canal is busy with barges and narrow boats, fishermen and walkers. Transport links are first class. Local buses run every ten minutes from the village and the local railway station is 5 minutes walk away giving easy access to the cities of Leeds and Bradford for shopping and theatre trips. Skipton, Gateway to the Dales and the Bronte village of Haworth are a short drive away, as is Salts Mill, a World Heritage site. There is a nearby National Trust property and the Worth Valley Steam Railway is 5 minutes away as is the Five Rise Locks. Pubs and restaurants are within easy walking distance.
