Description: This substantial 1850s farmhouse along with 2 attached holiday letting cottages and a large barn, which also may possibly be able to be converted subject to the relevant planning consents must be viewed to be appreciated. The property is set in 7.81 acres and is surrounded by fields and the fells beyond which makes it a tranquil place to live but is a short drive from the village of Staveley and all the amenities a village has to offer. The property is well kept and has the added advantage of the income that the 2 attached holiday letting cottages provides.
