An almost unique opportunity to acquire this farmstead with planning consent for the creation of 7 no. residential dwellings with panoramic views across open countryside within a 'stones throw' of Fountains Abbey.

The Site

A quite outstanding residential development site set within the shadows of Fountains Abbey enjoying panoramic views in one of the region s most idyllic locations. The site is represented by a former farmstead with planning consent in place for the creation of seven new residential dwellings with allocated garden and parking.

The site can be clearly identified by the red verge on the plan set out within the sale particulars. The red verge incorporates all seven residential units with associated gardens and parking spaces. Additional land outside of the red verge may be available for purchase by separate negotiation.


By decision number 21/03126/PBR dated 2nd December 2021, Harrogate Borough Council approved a planning application for the change of use of previous agricultural buildings to form five dwellings with associated building works.

By decision number 20/04493/FUL dated 12th July 2021, Harrogate Borough Council granted planning consent for the conversion of two existing stone built agricultural buildings, allowing for the creation of two separate dwellings with change of use of the surrounding land to domestic garden.

A full set of plans and reports are available on the Harrogate Borough Council open access portal. Electronic copies are also available by request from the selling agents.


Mains services of electricity & water are understood to be available to the site. Prospective purchases are advised to satisfy themselves that the appropriate connections can be made:
