Located in the heart of the North York Moors National Park lies Low Harland Cottage, a traditional stone and pantile property surrounded by open countryside and farmland with stunning views of the Moors themselves. Access to the cottage is along a private track across the Moor, shared with 2 neighbouring properties, ensuring a peaceful environment with the neighbours and the postman being the only "regular" passing traffic.

The cottage itself has been renovated in recent years to provide two storey living accommodation with oil central heating and double glazing throughout. An oil fired Aga takes centre stage in the kitchen/dining room and there is a wood burning stove in the sitting room. A secondary kitchen
creates additional domestic space with butlers sink, an integrated oven, room for a freezer, further storage cupboards and an adjoining cloakroom/utility room with plumbing for a washing machine. On the first floor there are two bedrooms plus a bathroom.

The property stands in approx. 1 acre which includes a well stocked cottage garden plus a grass paddock, neatly bounded by dry stone walling and ideal for grazing horses or keeping a few sheep/rare breeds/bees etc. In addition a substantial general purpose building includes 2 useful workshops plus 2 loose boxes and a tack room together with plenty of remaining space for storing agricultural equipment and all the usual paraphernalia associated with a life outdoors. A separate stone built workshop has electricity connected and adjoins a useful nissen hut providing a roof for the hens! There is a productive vegetable garden together with a small greenhouse. In summary a real "escape to the country" opportunity.
