The Area

The popular North Yorkshire tourist village of Ingleton is located close to both the Lancashire and the Cumbrian borders, 9 miles north of Settle and 17 miles from Lancaster.

Description

Originally constructed in 1858, the Old Court House was a purpose built court, lock up, police station and residence for the Chief Superintendent and his family and was only closed in 2000. Planning permission has since been granted for conversion of the property into four self contained apartments. Two of the apartments, both accessed from the ground floor though the main front entrance, have already been sympathetically completed to a very high standard, retaining many of the buildings original features. These apartments have been rented out by the current owners of the property as ¿holiday lets¿ for long weekends and whole weeks, and income and expenditure accounts for these apartments are available upon request.
