Tenure: Freehold

The pretty front garden is set off with railings and a matching gate, the front door opens into a weather porch and from there into the roomy hallway with neat downstairs loo. Both the hall and the landing have attractive leaded windows and an oak floor in the hall, living kitchen and sitting room. The office is great if you are looking to work from home and with the addition of a sofa bed makes an ideal occasional guest bedroom. The open plan living kitchen is an absolute treat, lovely for families and for entertaining with a warming Rayburn for colder months and French doors out to the garden in the summer. Double doors open to the sitting room with a beautiful restored Arts and Crafts Movement open fireplace taking centre stage. Every open plan living kitchen needs a utility room where you can store/clutter/pile to your heart's content and The Cottage doesn't disappoint. Upstairs there's a spacious landing with two store cupboards, a lovely light master bedroom with dual aspect, en-suite and built in wardrobe, a second double and a spacious single bedroom which both share the house bathroom. Centrally located, many of the views are of fells beyond roof tops or neighbouring cottages, there's a real sense of village life and community. The garden is well-sized and a real little sun trap, it's enough for sitting out or outside dining with plenty of space for pots and a useful shed plus a concealed area for the oil tank and bins with a gate out onto the lane.

Mains electricity, water and drainage. Oil central heating with hot water from the Rayburn and immersion heater. A combination of single, secondary and double glazed windows. Fitted carpets, blinds, curtain poles, light fittings and integral white goods are included in the sale. Curtains are available by way of separate negotiation. All potted plants are excluded from the sale.

Within the Conservation Area of the picturesque village of Dent with its cobbled streets and within the National Park, this is the perfect place for those keen on walking, hiking, cycling or running - it couldn't be better, you're in the best possible starting place… your front door! Dent village offers local facilities (shop, Post Office, two pubs and two tea rooms) with more comprehensive facilities in Sedbergh (5.5 miles) and Kendal (16.5 miles) with the M6 J37 being 10 miles to the south east or J34, 29 miles to the south (but a lovely drive through beautiful Barbondale and down the Lune Valley). Dent station, the highest mainline station in England at 1150 feet above sea level, is located in nearby Cowgill. Trains run daily making Leeds, Carlisle, London, Glasgow and Manchester all accessible by rail. This is a location to embrace the journeys and revel in the scenery. All mileages are approximate.

Proceed into the centre of Dent village from Sedbergh direction and before the cobbles, turn right into Dragons Croft. Continue and after passing the village green on the left, The Cottage is the first property on the left with blue railings.
