Full description

The peaceful village of Rathmell with Reading Room, Church and Methodist Chapel lies within the picturesque setting of the Ribble Valley on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. A short drive/bus journey to the north east is the busy market town of Settle boasting a thriving community with a wide range of independent shops, Booths supermarket, a local theatre, good pubs and restaurants together with numerous societies, groups and clubs. The town has excellent road and rail links and offers well regarded primary and secondary schools with the renowned private Giggleswick School located in the neighbouring village.

The site comprises a section of yard and an equestrian menage currently forming part of the North West Equine Vets Centre on the southerly edge of Rathmell.

The proposed development is for a terrace of four two storey three bedroom cottages each of approximately 90 sqm (969 sqft). Each cottage will have two private car parking spaces and private gardens to both front and rear.

The site will be accessed from Main Street via the existing entrance before branching off to the right to the new development. The site borders open countryside to the south and east enjoying a pleasant outlook over the surrounding open countryside.

Outline planning permission, with some matters reserved, for the construction of four houses in the form of a staggered terrace each with private parking and gardens was granted by Craven District Council on the 20th December 2018. Application No.: 2018/19376/OUT

A copy of the decision notice and associated plans are available for inspection at the agent's office on request.
