What the owners say "When we first saw the property in the depths of the frozen Christmas time, we entered the cosy kitchen and we were captivated by the stunning view extending out across the hills. It's completely beguiling as the rhythm of the seasons unfold. It is a stunning location, tranquil, full of atmosphere and inspiring."


Charming, crammed with character and finished with an artistic flair this beautiful conversion sits on the boundary of its acre of land. A stunning stable door finished in a period sage opens into an entrance hall which leads to a glorious family kitchen. It's stylish with bespoke hand finished kitchen fittings complete with Lakeland slate worktop, Alpha cooker unit (like a programmable Aga with integral boiler) and a stunning feature stone wall. Warm and inviting with plenty of space for gatherings of family and friends for intimate winter evenings and a hearty home to return to for tea and toast after a bracing walk.

The kitchen is usually the heart of a home and this glorious home also leads to a generous, idyllic entertaining family living room. Many cosy evenings can be spent enjoying the real fire, drinking hot chocolate or why not spill outside in the summer from the french doors for a sunset barbecue huddling around the fire pit for star gazing. The views across the fields and spreading across the villages from here are simply breathtaking. On a clear day you can see for miles over to the hills stretching all the way to the Lakes. The layout allows for floor to ceiling windows and a glazed door leading to a side patio to enjoy the garden. This home has a studio within it. It has it's own entrance and exit, if you work from home, or could be perfect for your teenagers to give them their individual space.

With 4 double bedrooms to the first floor a family bathroom and Master with en-suite you will find the right room for each family member. One looks over the Dales, one has a pretty window seat to see the garden and the Master has the magnificent views to wake up to. Check out the floor plan for the storage too!

The land extends to an acre, previously home to chickens and pigs, a smallholders dream! There is a neat lawn, meadow with mature trees and to the bottom of the garden a quiet area with trees for those that want a slice of heaven, perfect dotted with lazy chairs and a small gazebo for relaxing time in the dappled sunlight or why not consider growing your own vegetables too. A small sheltered side garden grows herbs, fruit bushes & vegetables. Imagine having your children growing up with such a fantastic space to learn and create, from building dens to camping, rearing animals, camp fires and when you bring the trampoline it will have one of the most enviable views. This garden is the perfect foundation for imagination and creation.

Do you know Bentham? Are you sitting comfortably? Let me tell you about it...

...Bentham is a warm, welcoming, vibrant and honest community. It is full of humour, is genuine and stimulating. Not only thriving on farming it encompasses a wide demographic where professionals, academics, farmers, tradespeople and artisans all enjoy rubbing along together. It is a real, thriving and inclusive community with a huge range of interests being represented and a hive of activity that can be tapped into where desired. There is a local primary school and access to high schools including Queen Elizabeth at Kirkby Lonsdale, Settle College and Giggleswick school.

When you're settled in why not explore the most amazing network of footpaths, droving routes and tracks to venture straight out onto. Just an early morning or evening stretch up to the Big Stone is exhilarating and boasts the most amazing vantage point over the three peaks. A walk over to Lowgill with views to the east over the Trough of Bowland and the old Roman Road and west towards Wray, Caton and the coast beyond are uplifting! Pottery Cottage has not only got its own stunning location it is positioned within easy access to the rest of the Dales, Lancashire and Cumbria - all routes able to boast that they pass through beautiful scenery.

There is a small array of neighbours nestled out here with you, they are friendly and supportive in all the right amounts too, so you're rural without being isolated.

Now, if you fancy a small challenge and love to put your own stamp on things there are plans a plenty here for changes you could make, from your own sweeping driveway to extending and redesigning a layout if you wish. The best way to see this is to book a viewing and during your tour of Pottery Cottage and it's land, we can sit down and discuss the endless possibilities. Check out the plans and really enjoy some time here.

Ask for Victoria when phoning as she'd love to discuss a world of possibilities and can expand on the charm, surroundings and this beautiful cottage in some of the most beautiful unspoiled landscapes.
