Living in Adel


As one of the most sought-after suburbs of Leeds, Adel is an excellent place to buy a new home. There’s usually stern competition in this area, so make sure you get ahead by signing up to an offer such as our Part Exchange scheme. With this, we could be your guaranteed buyer if you have a home to sell as part of your move. Not only will this reduce your moving costs, but it also cuts out the stress associated with being part of a chain.


Things to see and do in Adel


One of Adel’s most attractive features is the feeling of openness you get from being right on the edge of the countryside. While the vibrant city of Leeds and exciting neighbourhoods like Headingley are just to the south of Adel, you can set out north on foot or bike to explore stunning natural landscapes. 


With Bedquilts Recreation Ground and York Gate Garden close to your home in Adel, Golden Acre Park, Breary Marsh and Adel Dam Nature Reserve are only a short walk north. A selection of golf clubs make good use of the pretty local setting, while EccupReservoir is also nearby. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can head further from town to explore Otley Chevin Forest Park and the Yorkshire Dales. 




There are two schools for younger children in Adel rated as good by Ofsted; Adel Primary School and Adel St John the Baptist Church of England Primary. St Pauls Catholic Primary School and Alwoodley Primary School also accept children in Adel, with both of these schools ranked as outstanding by the education board. Ralph Thoresby School is a good mixed secondary, while Allerton High School is outstanding. 


Transport links in Adel


Leeds city centre is only four miles south, which is a drive you can do in around 15 minutes in favourable traffic. Buses take a little longer, while the nearest train stations are only a couple of miles away in Horsforth and Headingley. Bradford and Harrogate are only around 20 minutes away in the car, while it’s double that over to York. If you want to travel greater distances, you can take advantage of Leeds Bradford Airport just four miles from Adel.
