Kilnsey Old Hall occupies a superb position on the western edge of this picturesque village within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Within the village is the Tenants Arms, a traditional country pub with boutique hotel bedrooms. A good variety of shops and facilities are available in nearby Grassington with more extensive facilities in the historic market town of Skipton only circa eleven miles away to the south. Good road networks are nearby which provide access to the West Yorkshire and East Lancashire business centres. Railway stations are available in Skipton and Gargrave which provides services to Leeds, Bradford, Carlisle and Morecambe.

Kilnsey Old Hall has an impressive history dating back to the medieval period when the Cistercian monks of Fountains Abbey were given extensive grazing land in Craven. The Hall formed the main administrative centre for the management of wool for the abbey. All flocks were driven to Kilnsey for their annual shearing. Some parts of the present hall date back to this period although the majority of the current hall was built in 1648 by Christopher Wade. In more recent years the property has been sympathetically restored and improved with meticulous attention to detail and has a wealth of charm and character which would be expected with a building of this age and calibre.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes a reception hall, a cloaks/WC, a walk-in pantry, a breakfast kitchen, a dining room and a charming sitting-room with decorative plasterwork believed to date back to the seventeenth century. Steps from the dining room lead down to a utility room, a home office and a guest bedroom which has a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite shower room. On the first floor is a landing, a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom together with two additional double bedrooms, each having en-suite shower rooms. There is the former pigeon loft on the third floor which could be utilised as a hobbies room, an occasional bedroom or a store room.

In addition, there is the chapel, a charming Grade II Listed detached building which has been skillfully converted into self contained accommodation ideal for visiting guests or relatives. The accommodation exudes charm and character and includes a bed/sitting room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The property has most recently been used as a holiday cottage and brings in a useful source of income.

Outside, the property is approached via a gated entrance which leads into a generous courtyard, off which is a double garage and a gate house, providing a useful garden store. There are delightful landscaped gardens divided into different sections - all being meticulously presented. Beyond is an enclosed paddock which extends in its own right to circa two acres.

From Skipton proceed in a northerly direction on the B6265 signposted towards Grassington. Proceed through the villages of Rylstone and Threshfield continuing into Kilnsey. Proceed beyond Kilnsey Park and shortly afterwards turn left, just before the Tenants Arms. Proceed up the hill. Kilnsey Old Hall will be seen on the right hand side. Enter the courtyard using the lower entrance.
