About this property

  • Sadler House Farm is an impressive collection of sympathetically renovated and reconfigured farm buildings, occupying a private hillside position in a beautiful stretch of countryside on the edge of Goathland. The original small holding is believed to date from the 1500's and continued to operate as a traditional moorland farm until the 1990's when it was converted into an attractive farmhouse and two exceptional holiday cottages which stand today. All three buildings really make the most of the setting, surrounded by picturesque moorland flanked by the steam railway along the eastern boundary.

    The properties stand at the end of a gated driveway which follows the edge of one of the two paddocks, the other being on the far side of the buildings and their respective gardens, extending to about 13.2 acres in all. The driveway arrives at a generous parking and turning area alongside the farmhouse and another gated driveway leading down to the holiday cottages.

    The farmhouse retains much of its original character but has been significantly enhanced by successive owners, the most recent having replaced several bathrooms, redecorated and installed wood burners in the sitting room and dining room and double glazing throughout. The accommodation is well balanced and beautifully presented, every room having a clear purpose, each boasting excellent natural light levels and arresting views. The property is heated by an oil-fired Rayburn kitchen stove which also runs the hot water and central heating. The kitchen and inviting garden room provide a wonderful vantage point from which to enjoy the gardens and spectacular countryside beyond.

    The neighbouring stone barns have seen the greatest transformation, having been renovated to the highest standards. Each is currently a very lucrative holiday let, The Long Barn is absolutely delightful with open plan kitchen/family room, four double bedrooms, a large living room and uninterrupted views over the valley and steam railway. The second holiday let, Orchard Cottage is packed full of character features and accommodates two double bedrooms, living room and modern kitchen. The first floor living space has eye catching original beams, oak floors and doors, and a bespoke wrought iron staircase creating a real focal point of the cottage.

    In both cottages the iron work has been made to bespoke design by Godbolds of Egton. Both benefit from underfloor/radiator central heating and timber framed double glazed windows. Both feature exposed stone walls which add a real sense of character to the living space.

    In addition to the house and barns there are a series of outbuildings and stores perfect for garden equipment and logs, as well as a double garage attached to Orchard Cottage.

    Outside the garden is traversed by the Moss Dyke stream with pond and waterfalls in the glade below the house. Two fields (currently let for grazing), woodland, domestic gardens and an orchard complete the site and a woodland footpath and bridleway leads direct to Goathland village.

    The whole plot works wonderfully and if you are looking for an escape to the country, with opportunities for income generation, this property will hit the mark.
