I feel very lucky to work and sell houses in the Wetherby area – right in the middle of the Golden Triangle of Leeds, York and Harrogate. I am also very happy to live in it too so would like to introduce you to …. Tockwith. I moved to the village in 2007 knowing that it had everything I needed for my young and growing family ……
