Outstanding Areas of Natural Beauty
If you want a home that’s nestled amongst some of the UK’s most beautiful landscapes, then West Yorkshire should be at the top of your list. This region has been poetically captured by the Bronte sisters and Sylvia Plath, as well as many other literary greats who travelled and explored its rugged settings.
From Bradford, you can visit picturesque Haworth or cycle along The Great Western Railway Trail. Or, if you settle in Castleford, you can spend the day at Yorkshire Sculpture Park or one of its RSPB reserves.
The region also has the Yorkshire Dales - whose rugged moorland was poetically captured by the Bronte sisters - as well as the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Peak District. You can really make the most of that Yorkshire countryside from your new home.
Culture and history
West Yorkshire has its fair share of famous faces - with Ed Sheeran, Dynamo and Kimberly Walsh all coming from the region. But this location’s fame is down to more than celebrities - many cultural movements and achievements have their history here, and it certainly shows.
Its art scene is vibrant, with the Hockney Trail and Yorkshire Sculpture Park nestled amongst the region’s rolling hills, and we’ve already mentioned the literary forces of the Bronte sisters and Sylvia Plath. There are a number of events and festivals held throughout the year, such as the Leeds and Ilkley Literature Festivals, plus some fantastic food choices to accompany your outings (the Yorkshire pudding was invented in West Yorkshire!).
The region has a strong mining and textile heritage - you can feel that hardworking Yorkshire spirit throughout. With so much history behind it, why wouldn’t you buy a home in this location?
