Nestled beneath the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park – with far-reaching views along the valley to Castle Bolton in the distance – is East Howgill, a beautifully maintained traditional stone-built house farmhouse that has been beautifully modernised over recent years but still retains many original features as a reminder of its past.

These include a stone flagged floor, exposed beams and stone lintels, a traditional farmhouse Aga, stone shelved pantry and a range of feature fireplaces.

Briefly, the ground floor accommodation comprises a porch which leads into a large dining kitchen with feature beams, a traditional oil-fired Aga in a stone surround, cream hand-crafted units and a small pantry with stone shelving; the sitting room with a stone surround fireplace and cast iron stove; the main

living room with a traditional stone flagged floor and a stone fireplace surround housing a large cast iron stove; a shower room and a separate WC.

There is access to the rear garden from the sitting room.

Upstairs are four large double bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a nursery, together with a good-sized contemporary family bathroom with a freestanding bath.

All of the bedrooms enjoy views of the surrounding countryside and, like the ground floor accommodation, have exposed ceiling beams which add character.

One of the bedrooms, to the rear of the property, can be accessed via external stone steps from the courtyard or via one of the other bedrooms.

To the outside of the property is a two-storey barn which offers significant scope for conversion subject to obtaining the necessary content.

The property is further complemented by good outside storage including a garden store, boiler house and log store.

East Howgill – which has featured in All Creatures Great and Small – sits on an elevated plot overlooking the valley of Bishopdale and has partly terraced gardens with patio areas from where you can enjoy the magnificent views.

It is on the market at a guide price of £650,000.
