This lovely property has so much to recommend it, from abundant wildlife on the doorstep and an idyllic rural location to fishing rights, delightful gardens and a large paddock.

Burnt Mill is a former water-powered corn mill with 1600s origins which has been converted to a family home retaining character features including the partially restored mill wheel on Hebblethwaite Hall Gill.

It offers split-level accommodation with all rooms having charming countryside views and is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, just a mile from the attractive market town of Sedbergh with all its amenities.

The mill has been coverted to a spacious family dwelling with flexible and versatile living space.

An entrance hallway leads into the living kitchen which is warmed by a woodburning stove with separate sitting and dining areas.

The kitchen has a wealth of wooden cabinets topped by complementary work surfaces, there are ceiling beams and a quarry-tiled floor and views overlooking the gill.

A formal dining room, utility and pantry complete the ground floor, along with an integral double garage.

On the first floor is a fantastic family room with vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, a sitting room and three double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes.

This level also provides a modern bathroom, a shower room and two spiral staircases to the top floor where there is a fourth bedroom or study and other useful attic space.

Externally, Burnt Mill has ample parking in addition to the garage, plus a workshop. Lovely garden areas run along the bank of Hebblethwaite Hall Gill.

A more formal garden surrounded by hedging is on the other side of the road with a one-acre paddock bounded by the River Rawthey to one side, over which the house has fishing rights.
