Tatterton Lodge is a prestigious development in the picturesque town of Wetherby, named in honour of John Tatterton BEM, a former town policeman who spent 30 years looking after the town’s local community. Wetherby’s rich heritage owes much to its location being a half way staging post between London and Edinburgh on the old Great North Road which used to run directly through the town; many of the coaching inns established during that time are still there to enjoy today.
Having been granted a Royal Charter in 1240, the town has always been a popular place to live and visit. The 13th century medieval bridge remains a prominent feature of the town and has attracted many visitors over the years including the famous artist Turner, who stopped in Wetherby in 1816 whilst on his way to York, and sketched the historic bridge; today visitors can enjoy following the Turner Trail and enjoy a stroll along one of the many delightful riverside walks.
Nestling in the heart of Yorkshire’s Golden Triangle of Leeds, York and Harrogate, Wetherby is ideally located for trips to these major cities to visit the shops and explore the many visitor attractions or enjoy days out to the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors and the East coast.
Within Wetherby and the surrounding area, there are lots of things to do - from the award winning Wetherby racecourse, Harewood House and the delightful parks of Stockeld and Roundhay, through to the bustling weekly Thursday market and bi-weekly Sunday Farmers’ markets. The town centre boasts a delightful choice of shops offering everything from butchers, bakers, banks, hairdressers, opticians and much more besides alongside a wide selection of independent shops and boutiques, restaurants and eateries.
Wetherby itself is well served by regular public bus services, with bus stops ideally located just outside Tatterton Lodge; in addition the main bus station is located in the market place. The town is also within easy reach of major road networks and served by Leeds Railway Station and Leeds Bradford International Airport catering for a variety of journeys.
Tatterton Lodge has been designed with safety and security at the forefront, all apartments and communal areas have an emergency Careline system installed, monitored by the onsite Lodge Manager during the day and 24 hours, 365 days a year by the Careline team. A Careline integrated intruder alarm, secure video entry system and sophisticated fire and smoke detection systems throughout both the apartment and communal areas provide unrivalled peace of mind.
Tatterton Lodge’s manager, Julie, is on hand throughout the day to support the Owners and keep the development in perfect shape. Tatterton Lodge is a very social lodge with events ranging from movie nights to strawberry and cream afternoons, board games, music evenings, fitness classes and birthday celebrations.
