Full description

Tenure: Freehold

“The Howgill Fells are sleek and smooth, looking from a distance like velvet curtains in sunlight, like silken drapes at sunset; they are steep-sided but gently domed, and beautiful in a way that few hilly areas are.” A. Wainwright

Great business opportunity within Yorkshire Dales, handsome former Vicarage with plenty of original character features and 8 bedrooms, great views and 0.67 acres of informal gardens. Presently run as a guest house with residential courses making use of the large studio room - the possibilities are almost endless… live the dream working in this fabulous countryside location.

Character abounds in this extensive period house. Through a gothic front door you enter the hall with impressive pitch pine floor and staircase. The three main reception rooms are all nicely proportioned and have working period fireplaces. The functional kitchen has a blue two oven Aga and breathtaking views from the kitchen sink, but then the views from every room are lovely! It is one of the very special things about St Mark's. The large studio is where the present owner runs courses (see website) supported by a series of utility rooms and stores. The studio has a separate entrance so it could be run separately from the guest house. Leading from a large landing are four double bedrooms all with pitch pine panel doors and en-suite bath/shower rooms. There is a fifth single bedroom with en-suite shower and private WC. The present owner uses the second floor (three bedrooms) as a private space.

Mature gardens surround the house with the main seating area on the west facing terrace in order to enjoy the splendid view.

If you are looking to make a change in your lifestyle, this large period house is worth consideration.

The scattered hamlet of Cautley lies to the north east of the unspoiled rural market town of Sedbergh. There are local facilities in Sedbergh and slightly further away in Kirkby Stephen and Kendal.

Sedbergh has primary and secondary schools as well as the well regarded private Sedbergh School (co educational 4-18 years). The nearest main line railway station is Oxenholme (Kendal) with fast access to London. Access for the M6 is at J37.

On your doorstep there are innumerable walks on the Howgill Fells - Cautley Spout, the tallest waterfall in England, is 2 miles north of the house. To find the property leave Sedbergh on the A683 in a north easterly direction towards Kirkby Stephen/Brough. Travel straight ahead over the river bridge and St Mark's is 2 miles further on the left. If you pass St Mark's church on the right, you've gone too far.
