Location & Description
Located between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District, Lane House Farm enjoys a delightful yet convenient rural setting just 1.5 miles to the south of the busy market town of High Bentham within the “Trough of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty“. Bentham offers a good range of amenities and facilities and for a small market town has good public transport links including a railway station on the Leeds - Morecambe line. Commuting by road is reasonable with the A65 just 4 miles to the east and Junction 34 of M6 just 12 miles to the west.
This versatile small holding comprises a deceptively spacious farmhouse which has been sympathetically renovated to provide an family home of charm and character. Adjoining the farmhouse is substantial stone barn offering scope for a range of uses, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The barn has a lean to extension of more modern construction opposite which is a further detached livestock building. Beyond the yard area is
a paddock and an adjoining meadow, about 4 acres in total.
The farmhouse is accessed via a porch which opens into a spacious living room with slate flag floor, a multi-fuel stove set in a fine stone surround and beamed ceiling. Off the Living Room is a pleasant Snug/Study with fireplace, off which is a useful Wet Room/Cloakroom. Beyond the living room to the rear is an attractive Dining Room with fireplace, stone flag floor and beam and boarded ceiling. The Dining Room leads through to a well appointed Breakfast Kitchen with a range of built in units and slate work surfaces incorporating a breakfast bar. There is a
separate utility room. On the first floor there is a good sized master bedroom with en suite, a further three double bedrooms and house bathroom, all accessed from an attractive landing.

To the rear of the house is an attractive walled garden with flower beds and mature trees and super views towards Bentham and the Lake Hills. There are two timber garden sheds and a further parking and turning area with a drive to the bottom of the barn leading round to the farm yard and the other buildings. The yard opens onto a small paddock which in turn adjoins a good meadow meadow, about 4 acres in total.
There is a further 15 acres of meadow and pasture adjoining the holding which is shown edged blue on the sale plan and is available to purchase separately if required.
The land is registered under the single payment scheme. The entitlements are not included in the sale but are available to purchase separately.
