Higher Croasdale Farmhouse
Traditional Farmhouse for 6

"Wonderful week in a fantastic location with outstanding views - couldn't have wished for more."

"Our third stay at this delightful holiday cottage – for us it ticks all the boxes!"

In a stunning open panorama with beautiful uninterrupted views over Burnmoor, this newly converted farmhouse has been sympathetically and carefully renovated to provide well presented accommodation in this truly 'off the beaten track' location. Approached along one mile of farm track, this is a haven for naturalists with lapwings and curlews nesting in the moorland landscape.

The whole of the delightful Yorkshire Dales are well within reach; the Trough of Bowland with its far-reaching views to the west coast and also the Lake District provide alternative days out for exploring this unspoilt area. The prosperous small market town of Bentham is just 3 miles away catering for everyday needs with banks, shops, pubs, take-aways, tea room and art gallery.

Ground floor: entrance hall. Spacious open plan 'L' shaped sitting room/dining room/kitchen, featuring a woodburning stove, beamed ceiling, window seats and door to garden. Bedroom with king size bed and en-suite shower room with wash hand basin and toilet.
First floor: two bedrooms (one king size and one twin). Bathroom with bath, wash hand basin, toilet, separate shower cubicle and heated towel rail.
