Storey's Cottage is a characterful detached cottage, built in the mid 1700's, in the popular, historic village of Castle Bolton, which is approximately 6 miles from the market town of Leyburn and 12 miles from the market town of Hawes.

The village is home to the tourist attraction, the medieval Bolton Castle, which was built in the 14th century and where Mary Queen of Scotts was imprisoned for a time. The property is set in an idyllic location with beautiful views looking across to Penhill. It retains lots of original features including exposed beams, stone wall, flag floor and an open fireplace.

The accommodation is good and consists of a sitting room, fitted kitchen, shower room and single bedroom to the ground floor. On the first floor there are two double bedrooms. The property benefits from modern electric heating and is on a village water supply.

Outside there is an enclosed South facing paved patio area planted with well-established shrubs surrounding an ideal seating area with views over to Penhill. There is a handy storage/coal shed located to the side of the property.

Storey's Cottage also comes with its own "garth" which is located just across the lane. This could be utilized as a private garden to make the most of those magnificent views of Wensleydale.

An ideal family, investment property or bolt hole in the Dales.
