The Butchins is a semi-detached barn conversion set in a quiet position within the village of Askrigg in the Upper Dales.

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, delicatessen, gift shop as well as 3 good pubs, several 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 property dates back to 1690 when it was originally a barn and cow byre and was converted around 1989.

Up until a few years ago the property had been lived in by the seller for the past 30 years. In recent years work was completed including insulating the sitting room walls, re-roofing work over part of the property, work installation of a new shower room and new hot water system, re-plastering work and a new wood burning stove. The Butchins has been well maintained throughout.

Since 2021 The Butchins has been used a holiday let/ second home. The cottage is available to book through AirBnB and achieves regular stays. Contents are available by separate negotiation.

The property offers deceptively spacious accommodation. On the ground floor is a good size dining kitchen, a ground floor shower room and a lovely bright sitting room with wood burner and views to the South. Upstairs are two large double bedrooms and a modern shower room. The property is mainly double glazed and has electric radiators throughout.

Externally, opposite the property is a grassed area with bin store and coal bunker, this could create a pleasant sitting area and off-road parking.

The Butchins is a great retirement, holiday, or investment property in the sought-after tourist honeypot village of Askrigg.
