According to the Sunday Times compilation of the 101 Best Places to live in Britain, published the 16th March 2014, the North Yorkshire Town of Skipton is the ultimate location and the most desirable to live. The Sunday Times says that Skipton in Craven (it’s full name) was chosen as this year’s winner and was ahead of Newnham in Cambridge, Monmouth in Wales and Falmouth in Cornwall.
The judges said that Skipton was commended for its ‘top-class schools, low crime rates, independent shops and great transport links’. As regards the properties in Skipton they said that they were reasonably priced, pretty and set among beautiful countryside.
Skipton is very close to Doorsan and we are well aware of the many beautiful areas in our county including Skipton. We have supplied many doors to customers in the area and are very pleased that Skipton has achieved this well deserved accolade.
Properties in Skipton are always popular and say that springtime is the best Sales Season so if your thinking of moving to this lovely part of North Yorkshire then hurry up to find the property you want. If you are purchasing a new property in the Skipton area and need new doors then come and visit Doorsan in West Yorkshire.
When I have visited Skipton I have always felt that it was a bustling, character town with interesting independent shops and a great market square used for local produce markets.
It makes me consider that keeping things smaller and more manageable is the essence of a good quality of life, I feel that some of our towns and cities are far too big and consequently loose the valuable community spirit.
