These delightful early Victorian cottages were originally constructed for workers on George Stephenson’s railway line in the 1830s. This historic railway line, now redundant, provides a scenic property boundary along with the Murk Esk, a tributary of the river Esk. The quiet rural setting in this magnificent Moors valley is what makes Whinstone Cottages so compelling for any buyer, perhaps more so because it is the first time it has come on to the market since it was built in 1835. It was purchased direct from British Rail more than 50 years ago by the current owners.

• Two cottages currently, but could be combined to create one stunning residence.
• Cottage 2: has a single storey kitchen extension with a downstairs bathroom. This blends into the traditional house with two bedrooms and a living room and dining room with an old range.
• Cottage 1: with a larger two storey extension; this includes a large, light and airy kitchen breakfast room, separate utility room with access from outside, an old range, a third single bedroom.
• Both cottages have large lawns and terraces that take in the stunning views and riverbank
• Huge potential to use as two holiday lets or convert into one stunning house (subject to consents)
• Accessed down a private road along the disused railway track, half a mile from the hamlet of Esk Valley.
