Otley & Places to Stay

Otley is a small market town situated on the northern edge of Leeds on the banks of the River Wharf.  Glide & Slide is a five minute drive from Menston train station and 10 minutes from Leeds Bradford Airport.  It is also easily accessible from the M1, A1 and M62.

If you’re into walking, or sightseeing, Otley is surrounded by beautiful countryside and Harrogate, Ilkley and Skipton are among the many historic towns within a 15-mile radius. If you fancy something a bit more metropolitan, Leeds is only a 20-minute drive away.

This Georgian Grade II listed town house dates all the way back to 1753 and is the perfect way to indulge yourself in a bit of Otley’s history. It is 30 second walk from the Glide and Slide shop and was renovated in 2008 with great care to retain much of the original features and preserve as much of the history as possible. Each room is complete with en-suite and accepts both business and recreational visitors.

Located among 44 acres of natural woodland in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, very close to the Glide and Slide Shop in Otley, is the Chevin Country Park Hotel and Spa. Perfect for a ‘ski lodge’ feel to your stay it has, ‘Alpine-style self catering lodges’ and also a hotel and spa for those looking to truly relax. It has lots of garden walkways around its beautiful lakes; there is even an outdoor hot tub and tennis court.
