An impressive, period farmhouse with three double bedroom and two further loft rooms, set in approx. 3 acres with a range of holiday let accommodation, in a popular and accessible rural location, close to the coast.
Dale Farm House offers a rare opportunity to acquire an exceptional lifestyle property with good income potential. Offering a number of imaginatively converted holiday lets, with space for a total of twenty six guests, the property is also used as a wedding venue and has previously offered yoga retreats. It is offered for sale as a going concern with, in the agents opinion, potential for new owners to considerably increase turnover further, should they so wish.
The owners accommodation is a comfortable, period farmhouse with three large double bedrooms and two further loft rooms / occasional bedrooms, and has an attached cottage, currently utilised as a holiday let, that could be suitable for an extension of the owners living accommodation, or for use as an annexe or dual-family living.
The property is located in open countryside on the edge of the well serviced village of Hunmanby, which sits on the borders of the Yorkshire Wolds and the Vale of Pickering and within striking distance of the Heritage Coastline. The village provides a good range of amenities including shops, cafes, pubs, church and primary school. The Yorkshire Wolds Trail passes nearby and enjoys excellent views, whilst the town of Filey and the larger Victorian seaside town of Scarborough have a full range of facilities and amenities, including railway access to the East Coast Mainline.
The location of the property is therefore ideal for holiday accommodation offering walking, cycling, horse-riding, beaches, water sports and many other tourist attractions.
