1 Ashfield Cottages

1 Ashfield Cottages is a 2 bedroom character property located in the popular market town of Bentham: a gateway to the stunning Yorkshire Dales & Lake District National Parks. The property is presented in fair order throughout, as the vendors have undertaken several improvements in recent years, but the cottage is now ready for further upgrade and represents a great opportunity to create a superb home.

1 Ashfield Cottages benefits from a parking space and divorced garden. A perfect home for couples or families, it is equally suitable as a low maintenance "lock up and leave" holiday home.

In brief, the ground floor accommodation comprises: entrance hall, sitting room, kitchen and utility room. On the first floor, a central landing provides access to the 2 bedrooms, and house bathroom.

Outside, 1 Ashfield Cottages has off road parking and a large divorced garden, along with useful stone built dry store.
