Oldfield is approached via a good track on the right from Slaidburn Road - around 2 miles south of High Bentham - having passed a Forest of Bowland sign and crossed a cattle grid.
With a 17th Century date stone over the door, the farmhouse was rebuilt in the 1800s. The attached main barn appears to be older and may date back to the original house.
In brief, the farmhouse ground floor accommodation comprises: kitchen; entrance hall; 2 reception rooms and traditional pantry. There are 3 good-sized double bedrooms on the first floor, along with a spacious landing, house bathroom and additional storage room.
The attached barns comprise: main barn with double doors opening to the pasture and views; further barn with double doors; workshop; large shippon and 3 further attached storerooms. Subject to obtaining the necessary consents, conversion of the barn combined with refurbishment of the farmhouse, has potential for a substantial home. Alternatively, there are clear opportunities for sub-division for 2 homes, or holiday let/annexed accommodation.
Further outbuildings include a large double garage with attached store, timber shed and stone built outhouse.
Outside, the yard is located to the rear - with ample parking - with gardens to the side and front aspects, enjoying fabulous views. The pastureland is located to the side and front aspects, comprising 3 separate fields with hedged, fenced and walled boundaries. Currently sheep-grazed, the land is suitable for equestrian use.
With views in all directions, Oldfield is situated on the edge of moorland, close to the Great Stone of Fourstones (Big Stone), within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The far reaching views include the famous Yorkshire Dales 3 Peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent, plus the Lakeland fells and Lune Valley.
The nearby market town of High Bentham provides a good range of shops, pubs and takeaways, along with a primary school, surgery, Post Office and train station on the Leeds/Lancaster line. Other local towns include Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle - both with Booths supermarkets. The A65 provides good connections for Kendal, the M6 and Skipton, and Lancaster can be reached in around 30 minutes by car.
Excellent secondary school options are available at both Settle College and QES, Kirkby Lonsdale.
