GENERAL REMARKS AND STIPULATIONS
Viewing: Viewings by appointment. All interested parties should discuss this property, and in particular any specific issues that might affect their interest, with the agent's office prior to travelling or making an appointment to view this property.

Directions: Head out of Whitby on the A171 moor road passing beside the villages of Aislaby, Egton, Lealholm and follow the road past the reservoir at Scaling Dam. At the top of the hill, take the left turn to Danby and follow the road across the moors into the village. Just opposite the Duke of Wellington pub, turn right to Castleton and follow this road along, over the river and into the village proper. Continue up the high street past the shops and garage and take the second turn to Westerdale on the brow of the hill, just where the road bends round to the left. Don't take the first turning, signed Commondale and Westerdale, as this will take you into the village rather than along Westerdaleside. So having taking the second turning, follow this road along and take the first turning on your left just before the tight switchback turns. This runs along Westerdaleside as a single track, tarmacked road. Follow this along for a mile and a half, passing Hollins Farm on your left hand side. At Brown Hill, there is a fork in the road and a selection of bins on your right hand side. Brown Hill is marked by a stone lying between the tarmacked road and the track. Take the right turn onto the track and follow this along, past the farm and Cockle Barn lies on your right hand side, readily identifiable by the beautiful façade as you pass along the track. Turn right through the gateway and park in front of the house.

Services: The property is understood to be connected to mains electricity. It is heated by an LPG heating system with the Worcester boiler located in the cloakroom. There is a spring water supply for fresh water, which we understand is shared and regularly tested. Drainage is to a private septic tank.

Planning: The property lies in the North York Moors National Park. Telephone: 01439 770657.
