About Otley

On market days this lovely little town becomes a lively hubb of activity as folk come from miles around to enjoy the great atmosphere of an open air market. A vast range of goods are offered by the stall-holders and everyone has a fine time.

Otley is a beautiful old town with attractive buildings in medieval courts and alleyways and a lovely parish church that dates back to Norman times. Rising behind the town is the dominant feature of Otley Chevin, and running through the town is the delightful River Wharfe, a magnet for anglers.

A jewel in the stunning Lower Wharfedale countryside, Otley makes an ideal base from which to explore the vast open spaces of the North Yorkshire moors. It is a town that has something for everyone, anglers, birdwatchers, walkers and horseriders. Above all, Otley offers a rare peace and tranquility that refreshes the spirit and lifts the soul
