Heron Cottage occupies an idyllic, leafy location on the southern fringe of Thornton-le-Dale, a comfortable 10 minute walk away from the hustle and bustle of the village centre. In fact, a lovely woodland walk behind the cottage follows the stream and leads directly into the heart of the village.

Occupied by the same family for over 35 years, this greatly cherished, double-fronted stone cottage is now offered for sale with vacant possession and whilst the accommodation is dated in parts, the cottage has all the makings of a comfortable home for families or retirement. The original cottage was extended in the late 80's by way of converting an old stone barn into additional, two-storey living accommodation. There is great character throughout the house with exposed beams, window seats, cottage latch doors and Yorkshire sliding sash windows. Heating is via Economy 7 electric night storage heaters and there is a back boiler from the fire in the sitting room to heat some radiators.

At the front, the cottage overlooks the village stream and behind, there is a large lawned garden affording a good degree of privacy with a backdrop of mature trees and clearly defined hedge, stone wall and fenced boundaries. Suffice to say, the keen gardener could while away many hours developing and cultivating this wonderful garden in which there is a detached stone barn, ripe for renovation. There is adequate private parking for at least 3 vehicles.
