Wrens House sits on the northern fringe of the pretty village of Bellerby, in an accessible location and less than three miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The property is nestled against a backdrop of rolling fields and copses encircled by dry stone walls; overlooking the sweeping landscapes of lower Wensleydale.

The village of Bellerby is well located, rural yet providing swift access to the A1 and wider motorway connections, including the east-west connectivity of the A66. Wrens House is articularly well placed to take advantage of the remarkable surrounding landscapes, moorland and historic villages, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Wrens House is an attractive residential farm comprising traditional farmhouse with attached barn with development potential (subject to consents) along with a modern farm building suitable for livestock, storage or could be repurposed for equestrian uses. This is all set within a ring fence of approximately 37 acres of amenity grassland. The property is perfectly suited for hobby agricultural, equestrian or amenity use.

The farmhouse is a wonderful property with a southerly aspect, the grassland and building sit to the east. The accommodation consists of three double bedrooms and a bathroom to the first floor, with the ground floor arranged as a kitchen, sitting room, pantry and downstairs WC. Adjoining the house to the west is a traditional barn with first floor, presenting the perfect opportunity to further develop the accommodation or create an annex (subject to consents).

A covered walk way/car port connects the entrance to further external storage. In all, the internal accommodation extends to over 1,700 sq ft.

Originally a traditional farm barn with stone under slate roof construction, the dwelling was created in the mid-19th Century, relatively recently re-roofed the rest requires a programme of renovation and updating. Various period features remain and could be incorporated into the renovations to suit a purchaser’s taste. The property is in an enviable position, located on the village fringe and encircled by dry stone walls and well established trees and shrubs. Heating is provided by electric storage heaters and an open fire in the reception room.

Farm Buildings
East of the farmhouse and situated within the largest parcel of land, stands the modern farm building. This is a steel portal frame, with fibre cement roof, Yorkshire boarding, block walls and concrete floor (30ft x 60ft). The building was previously used to house livestock and could be developed into stabling for those with equestrian interests. In the extreme east of the land is a further small stone barn with corrugated steel roof, this has been used as a field shelter but is in a modest condition.

The land is situated to the north and east of the farmhouse and divided into six parcels, much of which is bound by dry stone walls. A copse of mature trees borders part of the eastern boundary along with open fields that also form the northern and southern borders. The western perimeter of the property is formed by the A6108. The land undulates gently and comprises productive pasture and about 12 acres of meadow, with a southern aspect, this makes for a very attractive setting. Recently managed relatively extensively, the land is perfectly positioned to either exploit the environmental credentials or push harder for production.
