“Please note: this property is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is surrounded by common land. As is often the case with these types of properties, part of the garden is leased from the parish council for a nominal fee each year (~ £200 a year) after the previous owners extended the boundary. This is normal for these unique properties and means that your beautiful views will never be outbuilt.
Owners are happy to explain during viewings.”
