Cubble Head is an exceptional Grade II listed property with outstanding views.

It is a superb 4 bed farmhouse in large gardens with a partially converted barn with planning for a 1 bed dwelling.

Burtersett is a peaceful hamlet with a thriving community of local people, active retirees and a small number of holiday cottages. Activities centre mainly around the village hall, which is also open each weekend for tea and cakes. There is a traditional annual village show. Burtersett also boasts a very popular working artist’s gallery, housed in the former pub, The Shoulder of Mutton, which is opened for refreshments for the community each New Year’s Day. Despite its elevated and peaceful setting, well above the main road, Burtersett is just 1.5 miles from Hawes, the ‘capital’ of the Dales, where all amenities and services are available including GP surgery, pharmacy, post office, library, museum, numerous independent shops, several pubs and restaurants – and of course the Creamery, home to Wensleydale cheese. Hawes is an easy half hour walk on quiet footpaths, or less than 5 minutes by car.

Cubble Head is a detached, period house situated on good size rural plot, totally around 0.7 acres. The land wraps around the property and a large drive offers plenty of off street parking. The front and rear gardens offer views in all directions and have a good range of shrubs, trees and plants. A walled area to the left of the drive could be landscaped further to offer a fantastic vegetable garden.

The front entrance porch opens into a family sitting room with an open fire, window seat and beamed ceiling. Next door is a lovely dining room, also with a fireplace.
At the rear of the property is a kitchen diner with beautiful views across to Stags Fell and a door to a patio area.
There is also the family bathroom on the ground floor.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, two double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, all have views of the gardens and the hills beyond. The master bedroom has scope to create an ensuite if required. A shower room serves the bedrooms on this floor.

The property benefits from oil central heating and character features such as beams, window seats, solid oak doors and fireplaces. It offers good decorative order throughout. High speed broadband is available (tested to 149Mbps), ideal for someone who works from home.

Cubble Head has been a very successful holiday let for the last 20 years- see all the highly positive reviews on TripAdvisor and AirBNB. The current owners write, “ We have loved every minute we have spent at Cubble Head – the magnificent views, the tranquillity and the abundant wildlife, and yet only a few minutes from the market town of Hawes. It has been a joy to share this special place with guests from all over the world, and to have received so many fabulous reviews. We are reluctantly selling now that our family have grown up and all moved away from Yorkshire.”

The detached barn has been reroofed and repointed and is watertight; it is currently used for storage. Mains power is connected and mains water and private drainage are close by. There is planning permission to convert to a 2-storey cottage with a large bedroom. Subject to the necessary consents there would, alternatively, be space for 2 smaller bedrooms. Once fully converted, the barn could provide very useful additional accommodation for Cubble Head, for a dependent relative, or could provide a source of income either as a holiday letting cottage or a long-term rental.

This property combines classic charm with modern amenities, offering a truly idyllic living experience. Cubble Head would make an ideal family home as well as suit active retirement living with the potential to develop the barn for further accommodation.
