Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

Our exchange property is a very comfortable, self-contained apartment in a converted and refurbished 19th Century watermill in Airton, a beautiful, historic riverside village near Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The mill is situated on the edge of the village, set in a delightful rural location on the banks of the River Aire. There are fine views along the river and over the Pennine Way long-distance footpath to the fields and woods beyond. The Yorkshire Dales is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with superb scenery everywhere.

Our apartment contains 2 bedrooms, bathroom (bath/shower), fully fitted kitchen (fridge/freezer, cooker, washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher etc.) and lounge/diningroom (TV/radio, dvd/cd player etc.). There is a double bed in the larger bedroom and 2 single beds (one a trundle bed) in the smaller. The apartment is very comfortable and there is everything there you'll need for an enjoyable stay. We have high-speed wireless broadband for internet access.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The mill sits alongside the picturesque River Aire, fields and countryside. Airton is a typical small Yorkshire Dales village, yet is only 9 miles from the historic market town of Skipton. It is an ideal centre for walking - there are hundreds of miles of footpaths around, through fields, hills and dales, and alongside rivers, canals and streams, for short walks, half-day or full-day hikes, or multi-day treks. Airton is also handily placed for horse-riding, fishing, canal boating, golf, pony trekking, mountain biking and lots of other activities. It's also a good centre for touring and exploring the rest of the Dales. Find your favourite English village pub!

We are served by international airports at Manchester and Leeds/Bradford.

Yorkshire as a whole provides an interesting mix of stunning and dramatic countryside, picturesque villages, charming market towns, cosmopolitan and historic cities and wonderful coastline. There is an enjoyable contrast between its history and heritage, and cutting edge culture, art and designer shopping.
