A detached period farmhouse with four bedrooms and three reception rooms including a magnificent living room with Inglenook fireplace.

Nissen barn with full planning to convert into a two bedroom annex with holiday let/ B & B potential. Garaging and store underneath.
Further former parlour with planning permission to convert into a one bedroom annex.
The two local pubs serve lunchtime and evening meals, and The Red Lion in Burnsall & The Craven Arms also do frequent weddings, which always need plenty of local accommodation for guests.
Appletreewick has a flourishing, though very informal, village cricket team, and in October 2009, 45 villagers, including husbands, wives and children, went on tour to Portugal together. It was great fun, though not much cricket was played!
There is a local taxi firm in Skyreholme, handy for wedding guests to get home from Burnsall. School buses for Skipton grammar schools and local primary and secondary schools stop at Appletreewick church. Buses to Ilkley/Grassington stop at New Inn and Craven Arms, though will stop anywhere on demand.
