A beautifully presented and refurbished two bed cottage, laid out over one level and constructed of random Yorkshire stone under a stone slate roof. Set in the pretty courtyard community of Buckden Court consisting of a handful of properties, set around a gravelled courtyard. With parking for one vehicle as well as near by visitor parking, and with some lovely long distance views onto the fells, that make this village so popular for walkers and residents alike. Coach House Cottage was purchased by the current owners approximately ten years ago, at which time the property was a little tired. The current owners set about redesigning the layout by moving some walls to provide two useful size bedrooms, a delightful living room and open-plan kitchen, and a shower room. Having rewired the property along with new plumbing for the kitchen, a fabulous Mediterranean style refurbished shower room and having oak flooring, night storage central heating and an Esse multi-fuel stove as a central feature to the main living space. New fitted cupboards, kitchen and lighting were included in the refurbishment as well as two large Velux light tunnels providing extra light to the kitchen and shower room.

Buckden Court is a very peaceful, tranquil location, yet just a few strides across the road sees you at the Buck Inn. Having been a second holiday home running along side a very successful holiday let, this property ideally lends itself to the same scenario. A perfect bolt hole in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, with stunning views, great local pubs and easy to lock up and leave.
