New Homes in Adel

Make the Move

Buying a new home in Adel is the ideal solution for those looking to live outside of Leeds and commute into the city for work.

By day, you can enjoy the lively nature of the big city before retreating to tranquil Adel in the evening. Living here really does offer the best of both worlds.

Things to see and do

Adel’s rural setting lies on the path of the Meanwood Valley Trail, known as the ‘green artery’ in Leeds.

The seven-mile linear walk treats you to some of the area’s natural highlights, making it a great spot for relaxing, picnicking and wildlife spotting, with some parts of the path permitted for cycling and horse riding.

Adel has a quaint charm to it, and one of the key sights that encompasses this is York Gate. Recognised for its lovely 20th century garden design, the one-acre grounds features semi-hidden pathways and a stream, herb garden with topiary and summerhouse, White Garden with roses and peonies and a kitchen garden. It also has attractive architecture and impressive views.

Further highlights of the area include Adel Crags, which are twisted shapes reported to have inspired Leeds born sculptor Henry Moore, to create some of his most impressive bronze works.

Leeds is a 15-minute drive from Adel and offers a wide range of highlights from fantastic shopping to great family attractions.

Leeds City Museum showcases six galleries to enjoy. Whereas the Royal Armouries Museum and Leeds Industrial Museum are further highlights, while Leeds’ most popular family attraction is Tropical World.

Leeds is also a haven for shoppers, offering everything from high street favourites to independent boutiques which can be found at the Victoria Quarter’s Grade II arcades and Trinity Leeds.
