Rose cottage is a classic stone built detached dales house, it is nestled in the small hamlet of Blades, just above Low Row, giving panoramic views over Swaledale that are breath taking.

In Blades there are about 8 houses and it is accessed by a steep winding council maintained road, which is about 1/4 of a mile. Low Row, which is the village below has an excellent community with a popular pub, church and chapel. The market towns of Leyburn, Richmond and Hawes are all within 30 minutes drive. The village itself is surrounded by stunning hills and dales, providing magnificent walks from your doorstep in the Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

Up until recently Rose Cottage has been rented out, the property is now vacant and offers great living accommodation with character features. The layout to the ground floor is flexible and the accommodation consists of an entrance utility room, lounge with wood burning stove, kitchen breakfast room with pantry, dining room, study/5th bedroom, shower room and conservatory. To the first floor there are 4 bedrooms all with hand basins, and a house bathroom. The property benefits from UPVC double glazing throughout and oil central heating which was installed in 2007

Externally it has a south facing garden and ample parking, with stunning views over the countryside.
