A small village located in beautifully green surroundings.
Adel is just five miles from Leeds city centre but it still enjoy's the spacious and beautifully green surroundings the north of Leeds is known for. This greenery is thanks mostly to the rolling woodlands surrounding Golden Acre Park and Adel Crag, as well as the local golf course and the grounds of nearby Harewood House.
