The popular village of Long Preston is located 4 miles to the south of Settle within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Long Preston has two pubs and a busy post office, general store and tea room. There is a well attended primary school incorporating pre-school children and a railway station with services to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds to the south and to the north, Settle, Carnforth and Carlisle. There is also a regular bus service to Skipton and Settle. The market town of Settle offers a wider range of services including shops, Booths supermarket and a secondary school. On the edge of Settle is the village of Giggleswick, home to the highly regarded 'Giggleswick Senior School'.


Situated just off the West Green in Long Preston, Greystead has been sympathetically renovated and extended retaining many of the traditional cottage features while introducing a stylish modern twist. Linked to the cottage is an excellent annexe building which offers tremendous scope for any potential owners to use as either accommodation for extended family, extra space for children, holiday let or a home office.


The front entrance is via a delightful dining room with cast iron fireplace and exposed beams. The adjacent living room with feature fireplace and beams has a wonderfully relaxing charm. The generous Breakfast kitchen has a red two oven gas Aga at its heart with a comprehensive range of base and wall units. There is a further kitchen/Utility with a range of more modern units and an external door to the rear walled garden. The generous central hall/study area with attractive staircase leads through to a fabulous sun room extension with flagged floor and sliding doors opening into the private walled garden. The sun room also gives access to the annexe.

The landing gives way to three bedrooms with the master bedroom enjoying views of the Green and having exposed timber beams and built in storage together with a contemporary en suite with bath and large walk in shower area. Bedroom 2 also has views over the Green whilst Bedroom 3 enjoys views to the rear of the garden and fields beyond.
