THIS North Yorkshire farm is set in close to eight acres of scenic Dales countryside, near the village of Low Bentham.

A traditional stone farmhouse with a range of traditional and modern buildings, 2 Hill Top Farm, off Birkwith Lane, is described as a well-equipped and compact agricultural holding.

The farmhouse itself bears the date stone 1765 above the back door, which leads to a boot room with staircase to the first floor.

The living kitchen is the heart of the home, a light and airy space with Belfast sink, fitted cupboards, breakfast bar, electric cooker and stone-flagged floor.

An old farmhouse kitchen range and wooden beams bring a feeling of heritage to the living room, and the dining room also has exposed beams and a stone wall.

The first floor is home to three good-sized bedrooms and a family bathroom with white three-piece suite.

Attached to the farmhouse is a traditional stone-built barn with potential to convert into a house, subject to planning permission, as well as a stone-built store and loose box.

There are two modern steel-framed, general-purpose farm buildings, and a separate steel portal-framed cattle building with Yorkshire board cladding.

The majority of the 7.93 acres or so are permanent grassland.

Number 2 Hill Top Farm has double glazing, oil-fired central heating, septic tank drainage, and mains water and electricity.

The property has Talk Talk cable television and broadband, and the B4RN fibre optic broadband cable is 400 metres away.
