Bower Bank is a period farmhouse offered with a business opportunity in the form of a detached barn conversion for holiday letting, in a stunning location with superb views over the Dentdale Valley.

The main property is full of character with exposed beams, stone floors and other original features.

Set within six acres of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it is ideal for a variety of purchasers from those looking for a lifestyle opportunity or a work-from-home base.

It would also suit anyone with equestrian interests, having grazing paddocks and a stable block.

The farmhouse has an impressive dining hall, spacious sitting room and dining room, a study and a fourth room which could be used as a bedroom.

The kitchen and a shower room complete the ground floor and a utility room is on the lower-ground floor.

Four bedrooms are on the first floor, one of them reached by way of a rear staircase and offering a degree of privacy.

The remaining bedrooms are accessed via the main staircase and share the family bathroom.

The farmhouse has planning permission to create a large living kitchen along with two en-suite bedrooms.

The detached barn, which was converted from a music in 2008, is tucked away from the main house and currently used for holiday letting, producing a good income stream.

The ground floor lends itself to open-plan living.

It has a sitting/dining room, kitchen, ground-floor bedroom, shower room and cloakroom.

The second bedroom, shower room and cloakroom are on the first floor.

The barn has a woodland garden and both residences have separate parking areas.
