As we enter the autumn months we can celebrate what has been a great
year across Manning Stainton in 2015. At the start of the year we opened
our 18th high street branch in the busy town of Garforth. Just last month
on August 14th we were delighted to announce our acquisition of a local
Your Move franchise in Wetherby, which led to the opening of our 19th
Manning Stainton branch providing both sales and lettings together with its
own Fine & Country department.

With the second half of the year well and truly under way we can consider
the change in landscape this year has provided so far. To anyone active
in the market it’s clear that competition for the best homes is fierce.
What’s also been noticeable is the return to a more traditional pattern of
activity with a steady start in January building into late spring, a small lull
in the summer and the second surge we now expect to last through the
Autumn. This provides a welcome relief from the uncertainty we have
experienced in the market since the pre-recession days prior to 2007.

A general feeling of optimism seems to have returned and increased
demand has had to the inevitable of pushing prices up in many of the
markets we cover. Talking in general terms the average house price across
Manning Stainton has increased by 12% over the last year and Rightmove’s
own Asking Price Index has shown a national rise of 9% since the start of
2015.

If there is a challenge at present it’s the time a home spends from
Under Offer through to moving day and never in all my years has this
process been as challenging. Mortgage lenders are both over diligent and
overwhelmed, surveyors have become more cautious and solicitors (in
many cases) are struggling to contend with the increase in volumes. The
challenge for our team is to guide our clients through the whole process
because, although a sold board may look good, it means very little without
the moving van that should always follow.

There is no doubt that the mortgage
market has changed significantly. Products
change daily, as does the criteria lenders
use to determine how much they will lend
and to whom. Keeping on top of these
constant changes is key, and with this in
mind it is important when choosing your
first mortgage, you seek independent
mortgage advice.
Since the Mortgage Market Review came
in on 26th April 2014 there has been a
major change in the criteria being applied
by lenders when applying for a mortgage.
Banks and Building Societies are only able
to provide you with information about their
range of mortgage products. The choice
will be limited and may not meet your
exact needs in terms of flexibility, charges,
service or interest rates charged.
Not all advisers are independent and some
may be tied to a limited number of lenders.
However, customers will have more options
when using an independent mortgage
adviser as they have access to 1,000s of
mortgage products from the whole of the
mortgage market.
An independent mortgage adviser will be
able to offer advice on the various types
of mortgages that are available and make
recommendations based on your individual
circumstances. They can also offer advice
on protection products which will provide
peace of mind should the unexpected
happen and can guide you through the
whole home buying process.
Regardless of how, or where, you find an
attractive rate, the truth is that the most
competitive rates will be dependent on
your circumstances. An independent adviser
will take into account relevant information
such as your income and outgoings, so
ensure that you go to an appointment with
3 months of bank statements, 3 months of
payslips and any other relevant information.
The benefit of using an independent
adviser is that you can be shown various
mortgages from different lenders, that all
suit the criteria you have discussed, giving
you the opportunity to weigh up the pros
and cons of each deal with advice from
an impartial expert.
Your home may be repossessed if
you do not keep up repayments on
your mortgage.
There may be a fee for arranging
a mortgage. The actual amount
you pay will depend upon your
circumstances.The fee is up to
1.5%, but a typical fee is 0.3% of
the amount borrowed.

Sweet Potato, Chilli & Lime Soup
As the nights draw in and the evenings start to feel damp and chilly,
there’s nothing quite like a huge pot of wonderful warming homemade
soup. Homemade soups are remarkably easy to make and a completely
different animal to even the best of the shop bought ones. This is one of
our favourites:
1 white onion, finely chopped
1. In a large saucepan, soften the onion and celery in the oil until
translucent but not browned
1 red chilli, deseeded and finely
chopped
2. Add the fresh chilli and red pepper followed by the stock and
sweet potatoes
1 red pepper, seeds removed
& diced
3. Cover with a lid & simmer until the potatoes are tender (approx 15 mins)
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and
roughly diced
4. Whizz in a food processor or with a hand held blender
5. Add the lime juice & seasoning. Add crushed dried chillies to taste
6. Serve with crusty white bread or a helping of cheese on toast

If a town’s popularity was
based on the number of
favourable column inches
written about it, then
Harrogate would certainly
be near the top of any list
of desirable locations.
Indeed a survey carried out by property
website Rightmove ranked the spa town
as the ‘Happiest Town in Britain’ with safety,
sense of neighbourliness and recreation
listed by residents as the reasons behind
their happiness. A worthy accolade, and
rightly so.
For residents, workers and visitors alike, of
which there are tens of thousands every
year, Harrogate is the perfect example
of what a town should be. Beautifully
presented, unashamedly affluent and
increasingly cosmopolitan, Harrogate
has it all.
The abundance of open space is a real
feature of the local landscape and is typified
by The Stray, an area of land extending to
around 200 acres which borders the old
town. Meanwhile, Valley Gardens and the
adjacent Pinewoods comprise around 17
acres of park, woodland and floral displays.
It is believed that a greater number of
mineral springs come to the surface in
Valley Gardens than in any other known
26
The Montpellier Quarter
location in the world. Of Harrogate’s 88
mineral wells, 36 are found within the
gardens, with no two being alike.
The ability to transfer from green space
to the commercial and retail heart of the
town in minutes is a feature which few
places can compete with and adds to
Harrogate’s charm and appeal to visitors
and residents of all ages.
Nowadays a wide range of elegant
boutiques and high-end retailers including
Oka, Jo Malone and Rigby & Peller, along
with Hoopers department store and the
Victoria Shopping Centre justify the town’s
reputation as the ‘Kensington of the North.’
In sharp contrast to the fashion boutiques
and high street chains is a wide range of
independent traders selling a choice of
wares, while antique and curiosity shops
complete the diverse and fun retail offering.
Any article on Harrogate is incomplete
without reference to the magnificent
Bettys Tea Rooms. Bettys first opened
on Cambridge Crescent in 1919 and has
occupied its current site on Parliament
The world renowned Bettys Tea Rooms
Street since the early 1960s, making it
one of the town’s most iconic landmarks.
Dean Sowden the Chef of the Year at the
2014 Harrogate Hospitality and Tourism
Awards is the driving force behind Deano’s
Graze and Grill. The popular eatery serves
a range of grazing dishes including seafood,
meat and veggie, plus steak grills and
burgers to guarantee a great night out for
all the family.
However it is not just Bettys which
provides the perfect opportunity to sit,
relax and watch the world go by. Other
café style establishments worthy of mention
include Bean & Bud on Commercial Street,
Hoxton North on Parliament Street and
LMDC espresso bar on John Street.
All unique, all well worth a visit.
As befits such a cosmopolitan town
there is no shortage of exciting
restaurants cooking up a diverse range
of cuisine, to satisfy the most discerning
of diners. Two worthy of particular mention
are Baltzersen’s and Deano’s Graze and
Grill, both conveniently located on
Oxford Street.
The Royal Pump Room Museum
Furthermore, the A1M is within easy reach,
Leeds Bradford International Airport is just
12 miles away and a high speed rail link via
Leeds or York gets you from London to
Harrogate in less than 2 and a half hours.
What’s not to like!
Harrogate also has plenty to offer those
with an eye for culture and history. The
Mercer Art Gallery stages national touring
exhibitions of painting, photography,
sculpture and crafts, along with regular
displays by local artists.
Baltzersen’s brings a taste of the Nordic
north, using Scandinavian inspired methods
and locally sourced ingredients.

Meanwhile William & Victoria, located close
to the Montpellier Quarter, has been a firm
favourite with locals and visitors for over 40
years thanks to its extensive choice of fine
wine and delicious food.
With all that it has to offer and
the beautiful Yorkshire Dales on the
doorstep it is little wonder that Harrogate
has remained a property hot spot for
many years.

The Royal Pump Room Museum is the
perfect place to discover life in bygone
Harrogate, and the nearby Ripley
Castle, home of the Ingilby family for 26
generations, with its magnificent grounds,
lakes, deer park and walled gardens is also
worthy of a visit.

Area Focus:
Pudsey and Fulneck
Pudsey Bus Station
Pudsey Parish Church
Gigi’s Italian on Lidget Hill does a roaring
trade as does East on Richardshaw Lane
for those who like their food with a bit
of added spice. The recently opened Thai
Sun offers a taste of the Orient and The
Wetherby Whaler remains a popular
destination for those preferring fish
and chips.
Pudsey Market
Another jewel in the town’s crown is its
park, with features including pets corner,
aquarium, bird house and a tropical
greenhouse along with a large children’s
playground and a bowling green. The park
also hosts the West Leeds Country Park
Visitor Centre and attracts visitors from far
and wide.
Cottages in the historic Fulneck Moravian Settlement
Conveniently situated less
than 8 miles from Leeds
city centre is the popular
town of Pudsey, the
official boundary of which
extends to include places
such as Calverley,
Farsley and Stanningley.
Famous in the 18th and 19th centuries
for wool manufacture, the town remains
home to Hainsworth Mill, who has been
producing woollen textiles since 1783,
making it not only one of the oldest
companies in Yorkshire but also in
Great Britain.
The Stanningley Bottom based firm has
long and illustrious links with the history
of the country. For example, the fabric
to kit out the British ‘redcoat’ soldiers at
the Battle of Waterloo was supplied by
Hainsworth Mill and The Woolsack, the
seat of the Lord Speaker in the House of
Lords, has for many years been covered in
Hainsworth scarlet fabric.
Pudsey’s other great claim to fame is
its association with cricket. Mention the
name ‘Pudsey’ to any keen follower of
the game and they will quickly recite its
favourite cricketing sons; John Tunnicliffe,
Sir Leonard Hutton, Herbert Sutcliffe,
Ray Illingworth and more recently
Matthew Hoggard.
Pudsey St. Lawrence cricket ground
42
Even today, cricket forms a big part of the
life of the town, with Pudsey St Lawrence,
the ‘Top Enders’ and Pudsey Congs, the
‘Bottom Enders’; battling for supremacy
in the JCT600 Bradford League, arguably
the strongest non-professional league in
the country. Farsley also has its own team
competing in the same league.
Cricket and textiles aside there is much to
put Pudsey on the map, helping make it a
sought- after location for house buyers of
all ages.
The bustling town centre offers an eclectic
mix of shops, including high street retail
chains, banks, various independent traders
and a Manning Stainton branch, while the
thrice weekly market (Tuesday, Friday and
Saturday) attracts numerous stall holders.
The nearby Owlcotes Centre is home
to a 24 hour Asda and a flagship Marks
and Spencer.
Pubs, bars and a burgeoning café society
are much in evidence in and around
the town with the Crossed Shuttle, The
Marsh and The Commercial among the
most popular. Culinary tastes are also
well catered for thanks to an influx of
restaurants over recent years.

These establishments compete against a
host of fast food outlets, ensuring the good
folk of Pudsey are unlikely to ever starve.
Pudsey Park
Make a short journey from Pudsey centre
and you arrive at the picturesque Fulneck
Moravian Settlement, situated on a hillside
overlooking a valley, along which Pudsey
Beck flows. Its history can be traced back
to 1744 and is named after a town in
Northern Moravia in the Czech Republic,
from where its descendants came.
established in 1753, and the Moravian
Church, a Grade 1 listed building, making it
one of the most architecturally significant
buildings in Leeds. The terrace at Fulneck
is believed to be the third longest in
Europe, behind the Palace of Versailles and
Hampton Court.
Meanwhile, the golf course which is laid
out in the valley is thought to be the oldest
golf club in the Leeds area, having been
established in 1892. There is also an active
drama group, Fulneck Dramatic Society, that
stage a number of productions throughout
the year.
Visitors to the settlement can enjoy
home-made refreshments at The Giving
Tree Cafe or, for something a little stronger,
The Bankhouse serves a wide choice of
beers and has a comprehensive food menu.
The area offers a number of scenic walks
including a footpath between Fulneck and
Tong and the Leeds Country Way.
To find out more about Fulneck’s fascinating
history why not visit the Fulneck Museum
which is open every Wednesday and
Saturday afternoon (2pm – 4pm) until the
end of October.

This year has been fruitful in providing the right conditions for the market to
build on the progress made in 2014. Speculation on the result of the General
Election had held some sellers in abeyance, but with a clear result comes a
mandate for the upper quartile of the market to continue its improvement.
This regional revival has also been noticed at a national level with Sophie
Haydock of the Sunday Times reporting on Leeds and surrounding areas as
being one of the hot spot areas looking ahead. With the imminent arrival of
John Lewis, a northern Google headquarters and cranes back in the skyline
of Leeds Centre; the outlook is good for our region. This in turn has brought
with it new buyers, many of whom are travelling North to escape the capital
and bringing with them a desire to secure their forever home.
With this in mind, fundamental to the success of Fine & Country has been
the ability to understand the requirements of our buyers, and search for the
right properties to suit their needs. Since the start of this year alone, we have
secured properties which were not being advertised in the market for 14
buyers across our regional network of three offices. Our experience tells us
that often this approach will attract a better result, and provide our seller with
welcome discretion away from the eyes of the open market.

More Tenants are looking for longer term tenancies, with the average length
of tenancy at record highs of over 20 months.
Landlords and Agents are reporting properties letting quicker than ever
before with huge numbers of properties letting within days to a couple of
weeks and certainly few properties being available for longer than 28 days.

process and be ready to
move quickly.
Asking questions is critical, know
what you are signing up for.
Be law abiding, know your
obligations and make sure
you can afford it.
In 2015 we have helped over 4,500 Tenants in their search, in a market
where there are fewer properties available. As a result most Landlords are
enjoying speedy and significant interest in their property and so have the
option to choose the right Tenant for them, from a host of applications and
all offering strong rents.

Turkish (& Greek) Delight!
This unassuming family owned
restaurant in the heart of Headingley
(directly opposite the local branch of
Manning Stainton) was an excellent
find. However it was clearly already
popular with the locals as a steady
stream of diners arriving early one
Sunday evening proved.
Three busy and engaging front of house
staff offered a warm welcome and were
quick off the mark with our drinks order,
two bottles of Efes (Turkish lager), as we
surveyed the comprehensive menu.
As a prudent Yorkshireman I was
immediately drawn to the ‘special offer’,
a starter and a main course from the A La
Carte menu (except for a handful of clearly
identified dishes) at the attractive price of
just £13.95, available Sunday to Thursday.
Determined to throw myself into the spirit
of the surroundings and embrace the cuisine
on offer I chose Sucuk for starters, helpfully
described as a ‘special Turkish spicy sausage,
pan fried with fresh tomatoes and peppers’.
This proved a superb choice. Not overly
spicy, but with enough of a kick to awaken
60
6O
the taste buds and the ample supply of
bread was perfect for mopping up the rich
sauce.
My companion played it slightly safer, opting
for whitebait, and reporting the large
serving as ‘delicious’.
For main course I went for Kleftiko, a joint
of lamb slowly cooked in the oven with
oregano, garlic and herbs - apparently a
speciality of Cyprus.
The dish was served with one lonely new
potato and a side plate of rice and salad.
The lamb was mouth-wateringly tender, but
in truth slightly bland. Your correspondent is
unsure whether mint sauce is part of Greek
culture but it would have made a useful
accompaniment, as would one or two
more potatoes.
Across the table arrived Mixed Souvlaki,
a skewer of marinated lamb and chicken,
char- grilled and served with salad and rice.
The drop in conversation and the clean
plate gave me all the evidence I required to
record this as ‘gorgeous.’
In order to do the review justice I
reluctantly accepted the limited desert

menu, selecting Greek yoghurt with
honey and blackberries (£3.95) on the
recommendation of our helpful waiter –
which more than matched his enthusiasm.
A cappuccino was the preferred choice of
my guest (£2.20).
The final bill of just over £40.00, excluding
tip, represented extremely good value for
money and arrived with a complimentary
ice cold Limoncello liqueur. Although we
did not have any wine, a limited menu
starts from around £15.00 per bottle.
The acid test of any first time visit to a
restaurant is of course would you return.
Without any doubt, on this experience,
the answer is yes and, with a second Agora
restaurant having opened on New Road
Side in Horsforth we don’t even have to
travel as far to enjoy the Turkish and Greek
delights again.
