A beautifully situated Grade II Listed period stone farmhouse.
Set in one corner of a small hamlet high above the Swaledale valley, this superb detached Grade II Listed property has been converted from two former miner's cottages, one of a small number of traditional stone properties which scatter the hillside around a central green in an unspoiled corner of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Beautifully renovated and restored by the current owners, who purchased the property from a school who used the property as a base for children who came to explore the Dales, this lovely home provides the perfect location for a country break for a large family in one of the most beautiful locations in the Yorkshire Dales.
Styled and furnished in keeping with the age of the property, the cottage is full of real character and charm and retains many of its original features. The sitting room combines a lovely mix of modern furnishings with stone flooring, beams and a wonderful fireplace with a modern wood burning stove. A delightful farmhouse kitchen is a great place to sit and talk about the day's adventures, with an oil-fired AGA and traditional styling creating that much sought after old world feel. A separate dining room with another wood burning stove provides a great place to enjoy dinner. There is also a spacious utility room with a drying area and a small but useful playroom/study. On the first floor there are five charming bedrooms including a spacious principal bedroom, all with original ceiling beams and lovely window seats to relax and admire the far reaching views.
Outside is a charming country garden with raised patio area, overlooking the green and beautiful expanse of the valley below across to the distant fells.
