- Recently filmed for BBC's Escape to the Country as 'the mystery house' -

This 4 bedroom barn conversion is located within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.  It is within easy reach of the historic Market Town of Sedbergh (1 mile), Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale (approx 7 miles away). It's just a few minutes drive to the M6, and approximately 20 minutes to Oxenholme on the West Coast Mainline with fast links to London and Scotland. 

The property is situated in a private hamlet of just 10 homes in total. High Oaks was originally a farm that dates back to the 1700s. All of the properties in the hamlet started life as farm out buildings that have been beautifully converted into unusual homes. Each one is totally different. Because of the National Park location, no more properties can be built anywhere nearby. The hamlet is surrounded by stunning countryside and you can walk from the house along the Dales Way and up into the magnificent Howgill fells. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful.

The house has two allocated parking spaces, plus additional visitor parking in a small car park as you enter the hamlet. The house has a small, pretty walled garden and also enjoys a one-fifth share of a large communal garden where the property has a shed and wood store. This can be used for parties, or just to sit and enjoy the birdsong.

All the rooms are of a good size and it feels spacious.

This has been a very happy home, and would suit people looking for a rural idyll that's conveniently close to civilisation. It's currently occupied by a professional couple, but it would make an excellent family home (where children can play safely outside), or a holiday home investment.

Please see the many photographs that accompany this listing and the indicative floor plan for further detail. To fully appreciate this property please arrange a viewing appointment which you can do 24/7 by clicking on the contact link provided.
