Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 18
DESCRIPTION A superb capacious development comprising a substantial four bedroom farmhouse, seven cottages, parking, barns and paddock land.

The former outbuildings have been skilfully renovated to create a quadrangle holiday complex encompassing six cottages with a combined twelve bedrooms. The cottages surround a mature central courtyard with each cottage benefiting from a private patio area. A further detached cottage provides an additional two bedrooms with private patio area, taking the total number of available holiday cottages to seven.

Within striking distance of the Yorkshire Dales and the market town of Bedale, High Grange enjoys a semi-rural location but benefits from major transport networks such as the A1 and the East Coast Main Line Railway via Northallerton and Thirsk Train Stations.

Bedale is a thriving market town with a busy High street and a multitude of independent retailers. Affectionately known as the "Gateway to the Dales", Bedale sits in a convenient location which is easily accessible for day trips to Leyburn, Ripon, Thirsk, Northallerton as well as the historic city of York and the dramatic scenery of the East Coast.

The site is run by the current owner and freeholder. The income comes from the well-established holiday let business which has been run by the current owner for 16 years.

No formal Income forecast has been carried out by the marketing agents, however, accounts can be made available to serious interested parties.

Ongoing business unaffected.
