Living in Eastburn
Quality of life is about the details of everyday living. From the little things, like knowing the nearest place to pick up a pint of milk, to more important matters like finding the right school or having a health centre nearby, you need to know that the community you’re moving to will support you and your family, as well as being a pleasant place to live. So here’s some useful information about the area around Airedale Lea.
Leisure & Recreation
Eastburn Fitness Centre, a few minutes walk away, offers activities and classes ranging from Tai Chi and yoga to kick boxing and line dancing, while the Leisure Centre in Keighley incorporates leisure and learner pools, a fitness centre and a full-size sports hall. There are vast areas of open countryside to explore, from the farmland surrounding the village to the expanses of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, six miles to the north. The more unusual local attractions include the steam trains of the Worth Valley Railway, running from Keighley to the Brontë country.
Just a mile from the intersection of the A629 and A6068, Eastburn is well situated for access to Bradford, Leeds and Harrogate. Trains between Skipton and Leeds
or Bradford stop at Steeton and Stilston Station, around fifteen minutes walk from Airedale Lea, with the journey to Leeds taking just over half an hour. Eastburn
is also served by bus services operating between Skipton, Keighley, Harrogate, Ilkley and Burnley.
Recycling bins for paper and cardboard, glass bottles and jars, drinks and food cans, shoes and textiles can be found at the Hall Street car park in Cross Hills.
Education & Health
Eastburn Junior and Infant School, praised by Ofsted for its rich curriculum and the commitment of its staff, is just 200 yards from Airedale Lea. The primary schools of Cross Hills and Steeton are also within walking distance. Pupils from Eastburn normally attend South Craven secondary, a large comprehensive that was awarded an ‘outstanding’ assessment in its most recent Ofsted inspection. Silsden Group Medical Practice, with a staff of 10 GP's and an associated pharmacy, is less than a mile away, and there is a dental surgery in nearby Cross Hills. In addition, Airedale General Hospital, immediately east of Airedale Lea, has a round-the-clock Accident and Emergency department.
Eastburn General Store and Post Office is a family-run grocers, newsagent and offlicence, and there is a fish and chip takeaway next door. The High Streets of Cross Hills and Sutton-in-Craven include a large Co-op, butchers, bakers, hairdressers, banks and other services. Keighley’s shops range from a modern mall to a 70-year old covered market, and Skipton’s famous open-air market, medieval castle and traditional town centre are just six miles to the north.

We’ll keep it brief, because a lot has happened over the past seventy-five years. Around 100,000 new Miller homes, for a start. A lot of new ideas in building technology. Loads of awards, like Major Housebuilder of the Year, Large Housebuilder of the Year, Best Sustainable Development, and Private Housebuilder of the Year. That last one’s important because it’s from First Time Buyer magazine, so it’s about real people and their experiences.
Listening to you
Four times every year, we ask an independent research company to find out whether our customers would recommend us to friends. Our current rating is 97% positive (2012 average).
That’s about more than great houses. It’s about keeping in touch, helping you find what you want, helping you buy it once you’ve found it, telling you how the building’s coming along (by email, SMS, or the post). It’s about listening, and being there if you have a question or a problem. It’s about our incentives, offers and assistance schemes (please check them out), and dedicated websites that help people in a new neighbourhood to get to know each other. Yes, we get excited by new ideas and technologies, but essentially we’re just old fashioned, home loving people.
Quality homes. In quality places.
Building homes is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well. Over the past 75 years, we’ve seen what people really like about the homes we build and, well, we build on that experience.
So you know that behind the kerb appeal there’s a structure that meets the highest professional standards. You know that the beautifully proportioned rooms are impeccably finished and decorated. You know that every detail has been checked, inspected (and admired). You know all that because of the way the door feels when you open it, the crisp clean edge of the paintwork, the way your whole home just works. That’s experience.
What you may not realise, at least until you have the pleasant surprise of seeing your fuel bills, is that we are also absolutely committed to the most environmentally friendly movements in homebuilding. This means we use low-carbon construction methods (even zero carbon on occasion) but it also means that our homes are highly energy efficient in everyday life.
And finally, location location location. Some people want country quiet, some want urban convenience. All we can do is try to find the very best spot for every taste. So we try to put urban where it’s also pretty quiet and rural where it’s also pretty convenient. And the views? Well, we can’t move mountains (and wouldn’t if we could) but we will try to make sure your new home is pointing towards one if there’s one available, and something else nice if there’s not.
Service is too small a word.
We think of it as a relationship. Even if it never gets beyond the electronic stage we’ll do our very best to help you find what you’re looking for, and do it as unobtrusively as we can. You choose the channels, and we go away when you ask us to.
When you visit one of our developments, though, we have a chance to meet properly and talk. We enjoy that. We’ll show you homes we think you might like (or ones very like them if they’re not finished yet) and tell you about special offers that might interest you.
If you decide to buy, we’ll help in every way we can. We can give you information about mortgages and lawyers if you want it, although we’re careful not to become too close to anyone working on your behalf because we don’t want any conflicts of interest. Then we’ll keep you informed as your new home is being built, and invite you round at the appropriate time to choose things like kitchen worktops and bathroom tiles. If you want to measure up for carpets and curtains, we’ll do our best to arrange things.
When you get your keys, there’s a meeting to go over all the important stuff like stopcocks and thermostats, and we’ll also leave you full instructions. But here’s the best part. We don’t go away. We’ll leave you in peace, of course, but if you need help or advice we’ll be on hand for as long as you need us. That’s the kind of relationship we like.
