Otley doesn’t have its own train station, but there’s one nearby in Menston, which is just a 10 minute bus ride away.

Lester, Franchise Owner of Hunters Estate Agents and Letting Agents Otley, comments:
”In early 2014 I had the opportunity of growing our network further which I grasped with both hands. The town is lucky to be situated in such stunning surroundings; it has easy access to local amenities, excellent schools and an accessible transport system. It makes Otley and the surrounding areas a perfect location for families of all ages. I am looking forward to creating a home for Hunters in Otley for years to come.”
“Hunters are different to other agents because we blend traditional ‘great customer service’ values with fast-changing technology. We get the basics right with professional photography, 100% accompanied viewings and advertising in all the major property portals, local and national newspapers and magazines.”
