The Case for Horsforth

The people that live here don’t need to be sold on Horsforth, but for those unfamiliar with this part of West Yorkshire, we’re happy to provide some details about what makes this such an outstanding place to rent, buy or own to rent.

History of Horsforth

Travel back 150 years and Horsforth rated as England’s largest village, very much independent from its bigger neighbours. By 1974, however, it couldn’t keep pace with the irrepressible rise and expansion of Leeds, losing its village status to officially become part of the city (Leeds LS18).

Horsforth has expanded from a small agricultural village to one of the most popular suburbs of Leeds. With a strong sense of community, cobbled streets, small independent shops, boutiques and high performing schools, Horsforth is an idyllic setting for young professionals and families.

Horsforth has somehow managed to retain some of its village like identity, character and sense of community over the years.
