Property description

DESCRIPTION Foal Barn is a wonderful complex of potentially five holiday cottages, which are tucked away in a quiet private courtyard, located in the popular lower dales village of Spennithorne. There are lovely walks and views across Wensleydale, on the door step. The village of Spennithorne has a pub, church and a primary school with nursery. The bustling Market Town of Leyburn is about 2 miles away, with all the amenities you could wish for.

The property is flexible and could easily be split into part residential and part business if required. It is currently 4 self-contained character, 2 bedroom holiday cottages, one of which is lived in by the current owners. Downstairs in the owners accommodation is a communal utility room that the guests have access to. Decoration, fixtures and fittings are to a good standard and could be ready to use from purchase. There could be a 5th cottage available to let, which is opposite and in need of renovation, but this will need the relevant planning permission to be another holiday let, which has been indicated that it shouldn't be a problem. Externally all cottages overlook the communal courtyard, providing ample private parking and pretty garden area. There is also a large garage and workshop room.

This is a superb business opportunity that must be viewed to appreciate the size and layout of the properties.
