Externally High Manor has the advantage of gravel parking, approached through a pair of remote control gates, which in turn leads to a double garage with twin remote control up and over doors. The gardens provide a lovely amenity and are sheltered with high stone boundary walling and dense hedging. There are sweeping lawns as well as borders.
The village of Addingham enjoys a delightful setting amidst some of the area's most beautiful open countryside and stands just a short drive from the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Duke of Devonshire's Estate at Bolton Abbey. The thriving Victorian spa town of Ilkley is just some 3 miles or so distant. Addingham retains a broad range of everyday amenities including local shops, a well regarded primary school, churches of a number of denominations and a broad choice of pubs/restaurants. Ilkley is accessible by public transport and is well known for its first class shopping environment, a busy social round and excellent sports clubs. The town is also home to a very popular Grammar school although private schooling for children of all ages is within comfortable daily travelling distance.
For the business traveller Addingham enjoys a good strategic location with ready road access into the West Yorkshire, East Lancashire and Harrogate business districts. From Ilkley there are frequent ''metro' rail services throughout the day into both Leeds and Bradford, the former offering regular onward connections to London Kings Cross. Leeds Bradford Internal Airport is around 13 miles from Addingham.
