Dating back to the 1800s, this substantial, terraced, stone-built house has had a colourful history starting life as a barn, before becoming a blacksmiths, village confectioners shop and now finally a holiday home. It has been lovingly and sympathetically restored by the owners who have successfully managed to retain its original charm with a touch of urban chic. Given its central village location Highfield House is unusually spacious, with two reception rooms, a huge bathroom and a contemporary balcony. With a spacious, private, walled garden with lawns and various seating and lounging areas, Highfield House is simply ideal for relaxing after a day’s walking or cycling, or for the less intrepid visitors, who would rather spend their time with their feet up and a good book in hand. Enjoy the ultimate luxurious touch with an outdoor barrel sauna and hot tub complementing the adjacent relaxation/entertainment room.

Enjoy spectacular views across to Twistleton Scar and beyond while relaxing in the hot tub, or lazing around the top patio, perhaps waiting for your steak on the Bushbeck barbecue. Listen to the birdsong during the day and stargaze on clear nights. The property also benefits from off road parking for 2 cars, again quite rare for a property in the village centre. Beautifully decorated and well appointed, it provides comfortable accommodation in the heart of Ingleton, one of North Yorkshire’s most popular villages and is the ideal base from which to explore the Lake District and North Yorkshire National Parks. Year round local attractions include the caves and waterfalls, however the village also hosts many events and festivals throughout the year, including the 3 Peaks Challenge, walking festivals and motor cycle rallies, making it an interesting place to visit any time of year. The village has lots of shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a climbing wall, outdoor pool and reputedly the best fish and chips in Yorkshire! The village lies on the edge of the North Yorkshire Dales and the boundary of the National Park runs along the end of the garden, so it is perfect for walkers, climbers, cavers and cyclists. Activities available locally include guided walks, canoeing, climbing, caving, potholing and mountain biking (cycle hire is available locally). You can even go hang gliding off Ingleborough, one of the famous 3 Peaks which dominates the local landscape. Other places of interest nearby include the market towns of Hawes, 16 miles, Kirkby Lonsdale, 7 miles, and Dent, 10 miles. The Settle to Carlisle railway is also very popular and the nearest station is Clapham, which is just 5 miles away. Should you wish to venture out of Yorkshire it is just a 30-minute drive to the Lake District, and Lancashire’s Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, can both be reached in under an hour. Village shops and restaurant 150 yards, pub 20 yards.
