Situated on a half acre plot within the semi rural village of Cockfield is Lynden View, a substantial Three Bedroom Detached Bungalow, with large garden, separate paddock and stables.

Cockfield is situated at the Gateway to the Dales and for those wishing to explore the surrounding countryside there are a network of footpaths and bridleways, both in the immediate area and nearby Teesdale and Weardale, making this a popular destination for walkers, being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The village itself is surrounded by an 820 acre fell and offers a range of amenities including an Ofsted rated Primary School, a GP surgery, a late night Co-op store, two Public Houses, Post Office and Childrens Skate/Play Park.

Externally the property sits within its own gated grounds, has extensive gardens, separate fenced paddock and stables, attached Double Garage and driveway, providing off road parking for a number of vehicles.

In our opinion bungalows of such proportions are rarely available to the sales market and should therefore prove of great interest to a variety of purchasers.
