A RENOVATED home nestling at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales has been put up for sale – providing an ideal opportunity for buyers to break into the county’s burgeoning holiday let market at an affordable price.

Offers in the region of £85,000 are being sought for the country cottage, nestling in a semi-rural conservation area at Chapel Lane, Laycock.

It represents a step back to the future for Saltaire estate agents, Linley & Simpson, who also sold the one-bedroom property three years ago before it underwent complete refurbishment by its current owners.

“It is a home that has been transformed in that time and fulfilled its untapped potential,” said Jan Murray, Branch Manager of Linley & Simpson. “It would be ideal for a first-time buyer, as well as a fantastic and ready-made holiday let for investors.

“Its location makes it an ideal base for all lovers of the countryside – from walkers to cyclists – as well a romantic hideaway.

“Its elevated position in the village, which is full of character and steeped in history, commands amazing views – and sunrises - across the countryside. If you crave for a room with a view, this is perfect.”

Laycock, near Keighley, sits on the edge of the moors and is only a few miles away from Haworth, where the famous Bronte sisters lives whilst they wrote their novels. 

It is one of just a handful of places across Airedale which had a Maypole, before the rite of dancing around it was banned in 1644 by King Charles I, who described it as a “heathenish vanity”.

More recently, its village hall regularly hosted Bronte Blues Club events, attracting many famous international names in music over the years including Andy Fairweather-Low, Doug MacLeod and Hamilton Loomis.

Laycock overlooks the hamlet of Goose Eye and both villages are hallmarked by having a selection of cobbled roads.
