High Meadow, Thornton Rust, is a 17th century former dwelling house with a Victorian agricultural extension, situated in an elevated position within a quiet village location.

Thornton Rust is around 3 miles from both Askrigg and Aysgarth with their village shops, primary schools, church and chapel, and a range of pubs and hotels, with the market towns of Hawes and Leyburn being 7 and 11 miles away respectively. Sitting on the slopes of Addleborough, it is surrounded by glorious hills and dales and is popular with walkers. There is a village hall and chapel, and an active village community life.

This unique property now presents itself as an exciting opportunity to redevelop into an exceptional home. The property is in excellent structural condition and benefits from full planning permission with no local occupancy restriction.

The many characterful features include fireplaces and mullions. Along with the deceptively large interior, the proposed open plan kitchen/dining area and unusually large south facing garden add much to High Meadow’s appeal.
