There are many delightful features including mullions and leaded windows. The property benefits from mains electricity with a private water supply, private drainage and oil fired heating.

Of particular note are the delightful landscaped gardens which surround the house, enclosed by open fields there are formal lawned areas to the front and side, whilst to the rear is a vegetable garden and several outbuildings with a charming stream running through. There are ample parking facilities and an out built garage. As can be seen from the accompanying photographs the views both up and down the Wharfe Valley are magnificent there are some stunning walks on hand.

The property is situated a short distance from Kilnsey in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park some 3.5 miles from Grassington, 11 miles from the market town of Skipton, 14 miles from Pateley Bridge and 29 miles from the spa town of Harrogate and 38 miles from the financial centre of Leeds.
