area guide - Wetherby

News at Furnell Residential | 28/08/2019

Wetherby is located on the banks of the River Wharfe and is every bit the quintessential English market town, much loved by residents and visitors alike.

It is situated close to the A1 motorway and its proximity to Leeds (12 miles), York (12 miles) and Harrogate (8 miles) makes it a popular location for commuters and those looking for that elusive work-life balance. Leeds Bradford International Airport is also just 15 miles away.

There is a wide choice of schools for all ages in the immediate area and Ther Grammar School at Leeds is less than 10 miles away which is excellent news for families with children.

The town centre is packed with independent retailers and traditional coffee shops and tea rooms, while the Horsefair Centre includes a Morrisons supermarket and a Boots.

Meanwhile a weekly outdoor market is held every Thursday and a Farmers Market takes place on the second Sunday of every month.

Leisure facilities include Wetherby Leisure Centre, complete with a 25m pool. There is also a health club at the nearby Wood Hall Hotel and Spa and Wetherby Golf Club guarantees a top quality golfing experience. If racing is your passion then you will appreciate the closeness to Wetherby racecourse.

There is also no shortage of bars and restaurants with Sant' Angelo (Italian) and Don't Tell The Duke Bar and Grill amongst the favourites and, with numerous countryside walks on the doorstep, working up an appetite is never a problem.

Ben Furnell, Managing director of Furnell Residential, said: "Wetherby provides a semi-rural lifestyle with all the amenities, transport links and convenience required for modern living. It really is a place which is hard to beat."
