The well planned accommodation has been imaginatively designed to take advantage of the spectacular elevated views over the surrounding dales countryside, with the main living space arranged at first floor level. The first floor includes a spacious living room with vaulted ceiling together with feature cast iron multi-fuel stove and enjoys views to three sides. Adjoining the living room is a spacious dining kitchen, also having superb open views whilst being equipped with a good range of fitted units. The ground floor has been beautifully extended to incorporate a spacious porch/boot room which in turn leads to an impressive central reception hallway with galleried landing and arched feature windows. The porch extension has been superbly constructed in natural local stone to match the existing barn and has been extremely well executed. The central reception hall leads to three well planned bedrooms, all having views, together with a very well appointed bathroom with mixer shower over the bath. The accommodation has been maintained in excellent condition throughout and has been tastefully decorated incorporating good quality fixtures and fittings.

The idyllic village of Starbotton lies in the stunning Wharfedale valley, only a few miles north from the popular Dales capital of Grassington and only circa thirty minutes drive from the historic market town of Skipton with railway station.

The local area is renowned for its stunning scenery providing an excellent landscape for walking, fishing, cycling, fell running, horse riding and a range of other outdoor pursuits. In 2014 the Tour de France cycle race passed through the village whilst the National Park enjoys an excellent degree of tourism generally, attracting visitors of all ages.

The nearby village of Grassington is well served by a comprehensive range of amenities including a post office, a convenience store, a medical centre with dentist, a hardware shop, a range of other everyday shops and a great choice of places to eat and drink.
