A hidden gem within the Yorkshire waterways

Lemonroyd Waterside and Marina is hidden away on the Aire and Calder Navigation at Methley, adjacent to Lemonroyd Lock. The waterside setting is sheltered by woodland, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. And yet this peaceful location is surprisingly well connected, with direct access via Lemonroyd Lock to the River Aire, for passage towards Leeds in the west, or east to Goole and Selby, and on to the tidal Ouse for York, Hull and the Trent ports. Enjoy the gentle pace of rural life just seven miles from the bustling city of Leeds and with easy access to the road and rail networks of Yorkshire.

Things to do in Yorkshire and nearby

Stay local and enjoy riverside walks along the River Aire, spend time in the natural setting of Methley Wood just over the river, and enjoy badminton, gym or swimming at Rothwell Leisure Centre. Further afield, Leeds offers some of the best shopping in the country, as well as great attractions including The Royal Armouries Museum, Harewood House and Roundhay Park, which is 700 urban acres of lakes, gardens and amusements. If you’re taking the children or grandchildren out, they’ll love Diggerland and Riverside Paint a Pot at Castleford. 


Life on the water at Lemonroyd Waterside and Marina

"It’s a beautiful place to live. The people are so friendly and Maz who looks after the marina is an absolute star. I have lived here for over 20 years and would not want to change for anything".

Tracey, a resident at Lemonroyd Waterside & Marina

View from the Waterside Crew

"Adjacent to the mighty Lemonroyd lock nestles a thriving community of boaters with vessels of all shapes and sizes.  You wouldn’t believe the hustle and bustle of Leeds is merely six miles further along the Aire and Calder.  Even closer still is a lovely spot to stop a while and mesmerise the quintessential delights of Woodlesford.  Lemonroyd Waterside and Marina is a popular choice for moorings in Yorkshire with a proud heritage that once served British industry and remains a haven for wildlife and somewhere people can get away from it all…"
