About the neighbourhood
The Healthy Home is on a hilltop ten minutes from the market town of Skipton, gateway to the Dales and now recognised as the best place to live in Britain, in an annual poll judged by the Sunday Times newspaper. A vibrant market, cobbled streets, shopping that attracts visitors from all over the north, and of course all set in the most beautiful countryside. This town (old meaning of Skipton is 'sheep town') is the centre of the region's sheep farming. The historic Leeds-Liverpool canal runs right through the town.
