Situated between Askrigg and Hawes, it offers panoramic views of the surrounding Dales and is in a designated dark skies area which enjoys regular sightings of the Northern Lights.

A beautiful detached Dales farmhouse, the property has been completely refurbished to exacting standards by the vendors since they bought it in 2004.
