Swale Farm is a superb period property, tucked away in a quiet corner of this popular Swaledale village.

The village is one of the most sought after villages in Swaledale, being full of character and history. It is located on the Coast to Coast route and the Pennine Way, with a good community spirit. It has a village shop & tearoom, the famous Swaledale Wool Shop and is a tourist hotspot throughout the year. The village has a popular campsite, several holiday cottages and B&B's which all open throughout the year.

Swale Farm sits towards the rear of the village with views over the fields to Kisdon and the River Swale. There are great walks in all directions.

This detached property offers very spacious accommodation and original character features including, beams, shuttered windows, high ceilings and traditional pantry.

On the ground floor the entrance from the side leads to a traditional hall way with three reception rooms. The sitting room having great views down the valley. There is a dining room and separate sung as well as a large, family sized dining kitchen with pantry with original cheese shelves as well as a rear utility room.

There are two staircases leading upstairs, one from the hall and a second staircase from the kitchen. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, two having en suite shower rooms. There is a family bathroom and space by the second staircase which makes a great home office / hobby room.

Swale House may benefit from some minor modernisation, the home has been occupied by the same family for generations. In the past it has been run as a B&B offering two guest rooms.

Externally, to the front is a beautiful walled garden with lovely views to the North and East. To the side is an enclosed stone flagged patio with access to the front and rear gardens. The rear garden is walled with wrought iron railing on part and has a pleasant outlook of the village 'square' at the top of the village.
