The Manse

The Manse is a handsome, detached, period home occupying a superb position, just off the central green in Reeth, located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with splendid views of the immediate fells. The property offers generous

living accommodation extending to around 2400 square feet in the main house, plus an annex in the garden. It is currently

run as a B&B with three double/twin en-suite letting rooms and a guest dining room. The owner s accommodation is

generous and includes a living room, dining kitchen, two large bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite dressing room and

the house bathroom/WC. This works well and the property offers flexible living such as a five bedroom family home, holiday let/Air BnB or work from home space. In addition, there is a large garage and driveway to the side of the property. Each of the bedrooms are named after local landmarks.


A pillared entrance and wrought iron pedestrian gate provides access into the south facing gardens of The Manse. The main front door opens to a spacious entrance porch with a useful understairs cloaks cupboard, and a stained and leaded lit door opens into the main reception hall. This has a spindle staircase with wooden handrail and newel post leading to the

half landing with a large window allowing plenty of natural light into this area. There are stained floorboards here which

continue through to the dining room. From the hall there is access to the living room, dining room, Fremington Edge ,

a vestibule with storage cupboards, the laundry and dining kitchen. The main living room is a substantial dual aspect room with a period fire surround, multi-fuel stove and sliding sash windows which overlook the front gardens. The dining room has a multi-fuel stove set on a stone hearth and a large range of fitted shelving and cupboards to one wall. This is a dual aspect room with views over the rear gardens towards Fremington Edge. The dining kitchen is a substantial room with three sets of sash windows and a door opening to the rear gardens. There is an exposed stone wall to the dining end of this room with a stone lintel and multi-fuel burner set on a stone hearth and period wooden cupboards to one side. The kitchen area is fitted in a range of wall and floor and cupboards with a contemporary grey frontage, stainless steel handles, solid wood work surfaces, an inset one and a half sink unit, open plate rack and a matching island unit with breakfast bar area. The ground floor is completed with Fremington Edge which is a double en-suite letting bedroom and the laundry/WC.

First Floor Accommodation

There is a fine galleried landing to the first floor which provides access to four large double bedrooms, a dressing room, the house bathroom/WC and cupboard. The main kingsize bedroom is en-suite to a dressing room, this could however be a single bedroom if desired. Of the remaining three bedrooms, Harkerside Moor and Calver Hill are en-suite letting rooms, Arkle Beck is a kingsize bedroom, south facing with a period fireplace. The main house bathroom/WC is fitted in a white suite with a double step-in shower, panel bath, pedestal wash hand basin and low level WC.


There is a two room annex within the rear garden. This could be used for a range of purposes. It is currently arranged as a double bedroom with an en-suite washroom. This could potentially be another letting room, perhaps Airbnb, or would make a great work from home space.


The front garden is walled and has a pillared pedestrian entrance via a wrought iron gate. There is a stone terrace which runs the full width of the building with plenty of seating space which borders lawns with well stocked herbaceous borders.

The rear garden is walled with a gravel and stone perimeter around the building which leads to the main garden area

which is lawn with well stocked borders and two patios, one elevated and the other circular. A path leads down to the

garage and the annex and the oil tank and a stone store shed is located beyond here.


There is a lean-to garage to the side of the property which is larger than a single garage. It has an up and over door, power

supply and the central heating boiler is located here.
