The Property

This delightful and charming stone-built barn conversion adjoining the owners' farmhouse, is located just three miles from Bentham in beautiful rolling countryside. Situated on a high promontory overlooking the River Hyndburn, mature woodlands, the owners' landscaped gardens and a wild meadow, this delightful Yorkshire Dales cottage provides an ideal, secluded location for a small family or couple to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this unspoilt area. The layout takes full advantage of the lovely views, with the first floor comprised of a spacious sitting room with a woodburning stove and feature windows, two cosy bedrooms and a modern bathroom boasting a slipper bath. On the ground floor are a kitchen/diner and a small summer room with access to the patio and gardens. An abundance of pretty walks and cycle routes are available from the doorstep of this cottage near Bentham, and the River Hyndburn, a well known sea trout river with waterfall is just moments away, whilst the Lune Valley, a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and the Forest of Bowland are well worth a visit, plus historic Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale provide excellent days out. There are fantastic horse riding opportunities nearby, together with a golf course at Bentham, whilst the Dales towns of Settle, Skipton and Ingleton are also within easy reach.
