There are regular services by rail to Skipton, Bradford and Leeds and good access to the wider road networks to North and West Yorkshire and east Lancashire.
The farmhouse and cottage together with three further barns form the farmstead High Hollins Farm. The farmstead is no longer in agriculturaluse and the former barns are now in the process of conversion to residential use. Once complete, the farmstead will create an exclusive rural community of four dwellings in total. The two detached buildings have already been sold leaving just West Barn and the adjoining substantial farmhouse with annexe cottage.
Surrounding the farmstead is a productive block of meadow and pasture extending in total to just under 21 acres. The land is shown edged in blue on the sale plan is available by separate negotiation either as a whole or in lots and will be of obvious appeal to those with equestrian, hobby farming or conservation interests.
High Hollins Farmhouse
The house is entered via a generous porch into an impressive reception hall with stairs to the first floor and gallery landing above. There is a separate cloakroom to one end with a couple of steps leading up to the adjoining cottage. Double doors from the hall lead through to a magnificent living room with multi fuel stove set in a feature stone fireplace incorporating alcoves. The generous mullion windows to three sides create a wonderful light airy feel and afford fabulous views over the land and valley beyond. A further door from the hall gives access to the former garage which is in the process of being converted to create a large family dining kitchen.
On the first floor the gallery landing gives way to two double bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. A brand new master bedroom with ensuite and a new house bathroom have been partially created within the space above the garage and will be accessed from a new opening to be formed from the landing. There is also access to the adjoining cottage from the landing.

There is a comprehensive range of base and wall units, laminate work surfaces and stainless steel sink with double drainer. A connecting door gives access to the adjoining house and a further door leads through to a pleasant dining room which in turn leads through to the rear hall with cloakroom, external door to the rear yard and stairs to the first floor. The generous lounge with multi fuel stove and exposed boarded floor is also accessed from the rear hall.
