Fogga Farm, Coniston Cold, BD23 4EA

 £625,000
UNDER OFFER

On a route connecting Leeds, Skipton and The 3 Peaks with The Lake District and Scotland beyond, this interesting picture postcard farmstead was purchased from The Coniston Cold Estate 20 years ago, now including a traditional detached farm house with a 1.5 acre paddock and 2 semi detached barns which have been converted specifically for use as holiday cottages (however they can be used for ancillary living accommodation if they are owned by the same vendor as the farm house).

The farm house and paddock provides an ideal opportunity for a purchaser with equestrian interests and the holiday cottages offer considerable potential to an investor or a substantial additional income to the owner of the farmhouse, being ideally situated in a prominent location on the edge of the Dales, an area extremely popular with a high number of tourists.

The whole enjoys lovely open views and stands amidst open fields and countryside within short walking distance of The Coniston Hall Hotel and Spa and a range of other nearby leisure facilities.  

Both properties are now in need of modernisation and improvement but have undoubted further potential with the accommodation of the 2 lots (which are available as a whole or separately) in more detail comprising:
