Clapham village, on the edge of the verdant Yorkshire Dales and the National Park and nestled at the foot of the majestic Ingleborough (one of Yorkshire’s renowned three peaks) has long been a peaceful retreat and an inspiration for artists and writers as well as a haven for walkers, cavers, bird watchers, tourists and country lovers.

Now, the dream of living in such an idyll has become a reality because 22 new houses, built to blend with the backdrop of natural and outstanding beauty, are coming on the market without occupancy restrictions, so you don’t have to be local to buy into this dream location.

Many of Clapham’s houses are owned by the Farrer Estate; the Farrer family has had a home in Clapham since the eighth century and today still owns much of the nearby woodland, land, moors and many of the nearby working farms. This quiet conservation village serves its small community very well with a picturesque church, village hall, pub, shops and cafes Likewise, the locals are pleased to show and share their Yorkshire spirit at an array of events including the annual summer street fair,  the traditional Christmas grottos and at the community shop, which the resourceful villagers run themselves to meet their needs.

Clapham is ideally located for visiting neighboring beauty spots such as the quaint and bustling market town of Settle, which is just 6 miles away and the starting point of the famous Settle to Carlisle steam train journey that traverses Ribblehead viaduct on its 73 mile passage. Clapham too has a train station that is just 1.5 miles from the village. The village of Clapham is within easy access of the Cumbrian town of Kendal, which is just 24 miles away and at the gateway to the celebrated Lake District which, in turn, hosts its own awesome landscapes as well as its Wordsworth, Turner, Wainwright and Beatrix Potter connections. Similarly, the city of Lancaster, is a mere 20 miles away for those who don’t mind crossing ‘the border’ to the land of the Red Rose – perhaps on the trail of the Pendle Witches, through the peaks and troughs of the resplendent Forest and Trough of Bowland or to the medieval Lancaster Castle with its historic gaol and the site where executions were carried out for felonies such as stealing cattle. A handful of miles further on is the seaside town of Morecambe where you might meet the royally appointed Queen’s Guide to the Sands or do a spot of cockle picking. Then, back in White Rose country, there’s the wider Yorkshire Dales, right on the doorstep and spanning heather laden moors, market towns selling cottage industry produce and farm fresh products, picturesque villages with maypoles and clear streams as well as familiar TV locations such as Emmerdale, All Creatures Great and Small and Heartbeat. Still in North Yorkshire, and a little further on, you’ll reach the sea on the east side coastline. There are a number of beautiful resorts there that include Whitby with its Captain Cook and whaling history as well as its Count Dracula legacy and other coastal towns right down to Hull and the Humber Bridge. You can go a long way without leaving North Yorkshire but most Yorkshire folk will tell you, “There’s nowt much to leave for.”
