Carter Towler has been appointed to market and manage The Courtyard, a high-end rural retail destination on the A65 just south of Settle.
The award winning 4,669 sq ft complex which sits within a 1 acre site consists of seven retail and leisure units. Sensitively converted, the former farm buildings are currently occupied by bespoke furniture company Dalesbred; fabric and accessories manufacturer Abraham Moon; beauty salon Bellezza Dentra and The Brasserie Restaurant.

Commenting on the appointment James Skirrow, Property Management Surveyor at Carter Towler said: “The Courtyard is a thriving retail and leisure development; we are thrilled to have been appointed to look after it by its owners the Murphy Family Trust & J B Whittaker SIPP.
“The old barns have been totally transformed and are now thriving with activity again. As well as the artisan crafts on offer, it has a very good restaurant and there will soon be a dog groomers. Rigby & Rover will be our newest tenant and we are sure they will do very well here.
“Being just 10 minutes north of Skipton and adjacent to the busy A65, The Courtyard is a very accessible destination. There is a great deal of flexibility too in terms of the size of properties available, both are perfect for a variety of commercial uses.
“It really does have a lot to offer people who are looking for a relaxed afternoon out in the Dales. There are seasonal events too including helicopter pleasure flights and there’s even an electric vehicle charging point so visitors can have a bite to eat and browse in the shops while their cars are being topped up.”
