Full description

The hamlet of Selside is situated about 3 miles to the north of the larger village of Horton in Ribblesdale and about 9 miles north of the popular market town of Settle within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Horton in Ribblesdale has a station on the Settle-Carlisle line, two pubs and a post office. Settle offers a wider range of services and amenities including shops, a Booths supermarket, primary and secondary schooling together with a number of pubs, cafes and restaurants. The highly regarded Giggleswick private school is located in the nearby village of Giggleswick.

Penyghent Cottage is entered to the rear into a generous dining room the focal point being a fine stone fireplace with flagged hearth and multi fuel range. The floor is oak boarded and there are beams to ceiling as well as exposed stone mullion windows and stone features. There is a useful understairs store housing the oil fired central hearting boiler. Openings either side of the fireplace lead through to a well appointed kitchen with a range of pale grey fitted base units with granite work surfaces and splash backs and an inset stainless steel sink. Integrated appliances include a dishwasher, separate fridge and freezer and a stainless steel range style cooker with five ring hob, double oven and grill with extractor hood over. The breakfast area benefits from the impressive barn arch opening which is now fully glazed flooding the space with light.

To the other side of the dining room is a spacious lounge with multi fuel stove set in a feature stone surround, oak boarded floor and stone mullion window. There is an external door to the front and a staircase leading to the first floor.

The first floor landing gives way to an impressive master bedroom, two further double bedrooms and a house bathroom. The master bedroom is of impressive proportions benefitting from a dressing area with built in wardrobes and hanging space, stone mullion windows, magnificent exposed roof trusses and beams and an exposed stone feature chimney breast. An inner lobby provides space for an airing cupboard with hot water cylinder and gives way to a well appointed en suite shower room with walk in shower, w.c and basin. The en-suite is fully tiled and has a chrome ladder towel rail and extractor fan. The lobby also gives way to a pleasant gallery area which is used as an office space by the current owners.
