Full description

Spence Intake enjoys stunning panoramic views across Arkengarthdale and beyond to Teesdale.

Its location, set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, gives easy access routes to Cumbria, County Durham, Northumberland and the Border counties. It is 1 mile from the highly regarded village primary school, Charles Bathurst Inn and is 5 miles from Reeth.

This traditional stone built property dates back to the 17th century and was formerly a small farmhouse and lead miner's cottage. It has original exposed timber beams, stonework and some flagged floors together with a semi-inglenook fireplace in the lounge.

The property has undergone extensive renovation by the existing owners whilst still upholding the traditional cottage style.

Externally, the property sits in well presented surrounding gardens with drystone walling, private seating areas as well as a summer-house, with power and light, from which to admire the views. To the rear of the property there is a garth with a self-contained, fenced vegetable patch with raised beds.
