A remote former railway worker's cottage near Ribblehead Viaduct which went on the market last year has been drastically reduced in price after no takers came forward.

The remote 3 Bleammoor Cottages, formerly one of three but the other two have been demolished, went on the market last summer at £300,000 but selling agent Fisher Hopper, of Bentham, is now offering it for £250,000.

The fact there is no direct road there could be a stumbling block for some prospective buyers, certainly in getting renovation materials on site, but no one can argue with the wonderful views from every window.

The estate agent states: "Exciting renovation project in a stunningly beautiful location. 3 Bleamoor Cottages is situated on the main hiking path up Whernside, in the Yorkshire Dales.

"Adjacent to the famous Settle to Carlisle railway line above Ribblehead, the property presents an interesting investment, with a range of potential commercial opportunities apparent: private holiday home; unique AirBnB style experience; bunkhouse or refreshment stop on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge route. Plans will be subject to the necessary consents - this is in the heart of the National Park - but for the right buyer with vision, there is great potential here.

"Due to the unusual nature of the location, interested parties are advised that it is a 20 minute walk from the parking at Ribblehead Viaduct to reach this property. There is no vehicular access for viewings."
