Six Yorkshire Hotspots Appear In Sunday Times 2018 List
Each year the Sunday Times writes up its national list of the Best Places to Live. It calls upon many factors such as schools, location, local businesses and leisure to establish the ideal hotspots throughout the UK. Yorkshire features six times in the 2018 list, all locations where Britannia Turnbull’s have run removals in recent times.
Only a short hop from the Britannia Turnbull’s HQ, Chapel Allerton has been a hotspot in the city of Leeds for the last few years. It’s ideal location for commuting in to either Leeds or Harrogate and growing reputation for local businesses has seen its popularity rise and rise. The Sunday Times labelled Chapel Allerton as “vibrant and friendly” with specific praise for its superb eateries, bars and arts centre. This coupled with great schools, sporting facilities and the popular attraction Roundhay Park nearby only heightens Chapel Allerton’s growing reputation.
Situated nearby to Harrogate and in the area of outstanding natural beauty, Nidderdale, Pateley Bridge has won accolades before. In 2016, it won the best High Street in Britain in the village category. The high street is thriving with pubs, studios, a leisure centre and England’s oldest sweet shop which opened in 1827. Pateley Bridge is also known for featuring in on a number of popular walking routes.
The historic market town is known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, but its transport links the other way to urban centres in Leeds and Bradford make it ideal for commuters wanting a sample of the country life. It draws tourists to its medieval castle and nearby Bolton Abbey but its highly regarded grammar schools attract many residents.
In a similar way to Skipton, Wetherby’s links to nearby urban centres make it ideal for commuters who prefer the market town life. It also boasts great properties, schools and some of the best golf courses in the north of England. Wetherby is a well-known favourite of Leeds United footballers with the club’s training ground situated nearby.
Another market town with strong commuter links, this time to the city of York. Malton also has good access to the North York Moors National Park but is more widely regarded for its culinary and gastronomy scene. Its food events including the annual food festival is a huge draw and its dining scene thrives thanks to locally sourced produce.
Another popular commuter location for the city of Hull with links to rural retreats, Beverley has admired architecture, the country’s oldest state school and a bustling independent scene of shops, restaurants and cafes. It is home to Beverley Racecourse, a popular meet each year, and has also hosted the Tour de Yorkshire cycling race thanks to its thriving cycling community.← Good News on the Double for Home Buyers in Leeds The Whole Kit & Caboodle from Turnbull’s →
