Property description

Close to the source of the River Wharfe, a confluence of Oughtershaw Beck and Greenfield Beck, Oughtershaw is a small hamlet of just 12 properties in a stunning setting within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, around 6 miles from Hawes, 4 miles from The George at Hubberholme and 9 miles from Kettlewell, where there is a well-respected Primary School, village shop, Church and public houses. All around there is spectacular scenery and an absolute sense of peace and rural tranquillity.  

Constructed around 2008 from local stone, Water Gap Rigs is an amazingly spacious home in a beautiful setting with breathtaking views all around. Many of the rooms have two windows, making the accommodation exceptionally light and spacious, and maximises on the fabulous scenery. When built, the property was subject to an Agricultural Restriction which was subsequently amended to a S106 for local occupancy, meaning that it can only be occupied by someone living, working or with family connections in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. For anyone interested in further extending the accommodation for possibly doing B&B, a consent was granted in June 2018, Decision No C/13/89D, giving permission for two further en suite rooms over the existing garage.
