The Gate House is an immaculately presented and spacious, extended 3 double bedroom family home, just outside the popular village of Low Bentham with a detached former stable ready for conversion to create a 1 bed annexe.
The Gate House is an immaculately presented and spacious, extended 3 double bedroom family home, just outside the popular village of Low Bentham, with views of the river. A detached stone built former stable has planning permission for conversion to create a 1 bed annexe - ideal for AirBnB or additional accommodation. With large, easily maintained gardens and off-road parking, viewing is essential in order to appreciate the space, comfort and potential for a lifestyle business. Note the former Toll House charges displayed on a sign at the front of the property - evidence of the property's origins.
On the ground floor, the accommodation briefly comprises: dining room with multi-fuel stove; lounge with feature fireplace, living room (also with feature fireplace), spacious conservatory, utility room and kitchen. The three double bedrooms on the first floor are all very generous in size, as is the large family bathroom.
Located on Wennington Road just outside Low Bentham, The Gate House enjoys a pleasant outlook over a charming stretch of the River Wenning. The main driveway provides parking for at least 4 cars and there is an additional drive for 1 car to the stable block - ideal for guests if this is converted to holiday accommodation. The immaculate and extensive rear garden is easily maintained, with lawns and mature borders and there is plenty of patio space for entertaining.
A detached former stable has planning for conversion to provide 1 bed accommodation and has been re-roofed, re-pointed and fitted with UPVC double glazing. It has power and light and now requires water, drainage and internal refurbishment. Once completed, the ground floor accommodation will comprise a kitchen and living area, with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor.
Low Bentham is a quiet village with two pubs, including the Punchbowl - just a short walk down the lane. The Gate House is just over a mile from all the amenities in High Bentham and these include: grocery stores; a Bank, a butchers, an ironmongers and a Post Office. High Bentham and Wennington have train stations on the Leeds/Lancaster line. Lancaster and the M6 are 25 minutes by car.

The village is on the edge of the Forest of Bowland and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park is just 10 minutes' drive. The Lakes can be reached in under an hour and the coast at Morecambe, Arnside and Silverdale is half an hour in the car.
