Buttercup Cottage has recently been renovated to a high standard and is situated in Askrigg.

Askrigg is a picturesque village with its ancient market cross, notable church and cobbled central "green". It has a primary school, good general store, cafe, and gift shop as well as 3 good pubs, a number of B&B's and an excellent community life. It is famous for its Herriot connections, being the village where the series All Creatures Great & Small was filmed.

The cottage dates back to before 1750 and offers plenty of character with beams, flagged floors and exposed stonework throughout. The current vendors have recently completed an extensive list of work and renovation on the property. Buttercup Cottage benefits from a new roof, modern double glazing throughout and a wood pellet boiler and heating system.

On the ground floor there is a welcoming entrance room in the original stable, retaining cobbles on the floor, a cosy dining room with traditional Yorkshire range, family sitting room with a fireplace, a newly fitted kitchen and a modern downstairs shower room. Upstairs are three good double bedrooms to the front with a further double bedroom and a house bathroom at the rear.

Outside, is an enclosed patio garden, a good stone built outhouse with power, light and water and an area for the bins. There is also a side gate that allows access to a side passageway.

Buttercup Cottage is perfect for either full time or holiday living, in a popular village in the heart of Wensleydale.
