Adel, located in LS16, and their local neighbourhoods Weetwood and Cookridge are close to Leeds City Centre but still spacious and enjoyably green, with rolling woodlands that encompass Golden Acre Park and Adel Crag.

Situated just five miles from Leeds City Centre, Adel is a wonderful blend of urban and rural living, whilst being close enough to the city centre for an easy commute, you’ll also find that Adel is just far enough out the cosmopolitan jungle to enjoy the pleasant and peaceful rural countryside.


Adel definitely has a suburban look and feel but is also very leafy and individual, if you’re after vast space to exercise the kids and dogs, the lovely Golden Acre Park is close at hand.

LS16 is also home to Headingley Golf Club, the oldest in Leeds, as well as Adel’s parish church, St John the Baptist, which has been around for over 850 years. It is grade I listed building and rates among Yorkshire’s best buildings from the Norman era.

Adel has a nice gathering of local shops on the Leeds-Otley Road, clustered around the Farrar Lane crossroads, as well as the convenience of an Asda at the top of Farrar Lane.


In terms of property, Adel has a greater offering of rented property than at nearby Bramhope, with Leeds letting agents, the majority of the stock having been built during the past 60 years. Tenants looking for a Victorian home won’t find a vast array of the best Victorian property Leeds has to offer, however where these convenient homes may lack in individuality they make up for in generously sized rooms and ample gardens.

There is a complete mix of families, executives transferring to Leeds accommodation as well as an influx of young families and professionals. Adel is largely a mix of three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached Leeds family housing with the majority lying within estates built during the 1950s boom. There are also some 1970s/80s Leeds rental properties available to Tenants.

Three-bed semis are common, making up 40% of all LS16’s 17,000 homes. The best property is usually found in Bramhope and homes in Hall Drive, the village’s costliest address, average not that far off £1million. The bungalows, many of which are situated in Adel, are very spacious and very popular with couples in retirement, while workers from the airport snap up the cheaper flats to rent Leeds.

Leeds LS16 has a small gathering of young professionals, but more often than not, usually the country types who prefer long walks to a night on the town. Adel doesn’t attract too many Students searching for Leeds student accommodation apart from those who choose to live at home due to the majority of the Leeds Student campuses being situated in the North and towards the city centre.

Fittingly, the average family in LS16 own their own home and so there are fewer houses to rent Leeds than you’ll find nearer to the city centre, although new developments have sprung up offering four beds properties have recently been let to visiting executives.
