Property Description

Bishopswood is an extraordinary opportunity to own a fine detached property in a tranquil setting within the beloved Yorkshire Dales village of Clapham. Accessed via a private drive, Bishopswood sits atop an elevated sloping plot, offering superb views over the village and the Forest of Bowland.

The ground floor welcomes you with an entrance lobby and hallway, seamlessly leading to a laundry room, shower room, three bedrooms and providing access to the integral garage. On the first floor are two additional bedrooms, one boasting a private balcony and walk in wardrobe, a family bathroom and a tremendous open-plan kitchen and living space, complete with its own private balcony. This space effortlessly flows into a utility area and conservatory, which opens onto a tranquil rear garden adorned with lush lawns and mature foliage.

To the front of the property lies ample parking, ensuring convenience for residents and guests alike.


Bishopswood is located within the heart of Clapham - a very popular village with tourists and locals alike. Famous for its incredibly scenic walk to Ingleborough Cave and beyond, as well as its picturesque properties and community spirit - freehold properties are rarely available. A base for popular ascents of Ingleborough, the location is ideal for hikers, cyclists and cavers. The village has a community run village shop offering the majority of day-to-day needs. It also has a cosy village pub offering great food and local ales. Clapham has its own train station on the Leeds/Lancaster line and buses can be caught from the center of the village, running between Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale.

The bustling market towns of Kirkby Lonsdale and Settle are a short drive away, both providing a good range of shops, pubs, restaurants and bars. Excellent primary schooling is available in Austwick and Giggleswick and the village falls within the catchment for highly regarded secondary education at Settle College and QES, Kirkby Lonsdale, and within easy reach of both Sedbergh & Giggleswick private schools.
