Dale Cottage is a stone cottage under a pantile roof, overlooking the village beck and with and easterly front aspect. It has been in the current owners family since 1877 and will have, at one time, been a farmhouse to a small village smallholding. The Property has a well stocked rear garden and an adjoining annex that has a separate door onto Maltongate and a ladder accessing a first floor.

The cottage itself requires modernising and considerable refurbishment but also has the potential (subject to relevant planning consents) to extend; quite obviously into the adjoining annex. At present the accommodation comprises two ground floor reception rooms, one being a dining kitchen with access to the rear garden. Upstairs there are 2 double bedrooms and a house bathroom.
