Estate Agents Bramhope - Local Area Guide
About Bramhope & it's History
Bramhope is probably one of the most popular residential area within easy commuting distance of the commercial centres of Leeds and Bradford.
The village has a rich history and first appeared in the Domesday Book in 1086. In the 13th century monasteries owned much of the land surrounding the village. As a result, local monks were known to use tracks, such as Scotland Lane and Staircase Lane, to travel to the nearby, historic Kirkstall Abbey.
Famously, the village was nearly wiped out by the Black Death of 1348-09. When the number of adults reduced to only 34 individuals. Subsequently, this has increased and today Bramhope has a vibrant population of approaching 3,400 residents.
The village boasts a wide range of popular amenities including The Fox & Hounds. A fabulous 17th Century pub, which we would recommend!
The popular towns of Otley, Ilkley and Harrogate, known as Gateways to the Yorkshire Dales, are close by. Notably these provide a wide choice of shops, restaurants, nightlife and cultural attractions.
The city of Leeds is only 9 miles away from Bramhope. With its busy, vibrant city life. Similarly, Leeds Bradford International Airport is less than ten minutes away by car. Providing easy access to a wide choice of European destinations.
Families with young children are well catered for as Bramhope Primary School received an ‘outstanding’ status in its latest Ofsted report. For older children, there are a number of highly regarded secondary and independent schools ony a short distance away.
As a consequence, Bramhope is a popular choice for homeowners. It features a selection of beautiful, often large, attractive properties. Property prices tend to be higher than average when compared to other properties in West Yorkshire.
