Situated in the rural hamlet of Langbar on the south facing side of the Wharfe valley, Chapel House Farm enjoys a very favourable location within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty not far from the National Park boundary. Ilkley town centre is only circa 2 miles away and provides an excellent range of shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and general amenities. Ilkley also boasts a very wide range of sporting and recreational facilities and has many cultural events. Regular commuter rail services are available from Ilkley station to Leeds / Bradford city centres and Leeds / Bradford International Airport is only circa 11 miles from the town.
