Chestnut Cottage is a former three bay cart shed with a granary above, converted in 1987 to a holiday cottage then later in 1989 planning permission was granted for full time residential status. The property features, in its original form, in the book 'Houses of the North York Moors' and is highlighted for its unusual hen nesting boxes! The original granary steps are still in situ.

Now a comfortable family home, but still featuring the nesting boxes and other original elements, the property has, in more recent years, been extended on two elevations to complete the versatile living space. There is gas central heating throughout (with the exception of the Study which is electric heating) double glazing and a welcoming open fire in the sitting room. The kitchen includes a walk-in pantry, utility room & cloakroom at one end and at the other, a light and airy dining/living space with a lovely outlook up the garden. All three bedrooms will accommodate a double or twin beds, the main bedroom having an en suite shower room.

Chestnut Cottage is approached from the Back Lane where there is sufficient off street car parking for at least 4 vehicles. Very little traffic uses Back Lane ...it is a 'no through' road adjacent to open fields and farmland. The garden includes a level lawned area with planted borders, raised fruit and vegetable beds and is all nicely contained within established hedge boundaries. A south facing patio immediately in front of the property affords a good degree of privacy and creates a sheltered place to sit and enjoy the garden.
