Tom Galloway, from Dacre, Son & Hartley said: “Rose Cottage has been lovingly cared for over the years and is a beautiful period home that dates back to the 17th century. A number of attractive extensions and alterations over the years mean that it is now a substantially sized home, which has a prominent position in the heart of the popular village of Giggleswick.”

The property has a welcoming entrance hall, a large sitting room and dining room, which also has adjoining sitting area with an open fire, as well as a splendid living kitchen, which has been extended by the current owner, and includes a utility room and pantry. The wonderful bespoke kitchen has a five burner Rangemaster oven and is filled with natural light.”

There are three further double bedrooms a potential fifth bedroom or home office and a house bathroom.

Outside there is a large integral garage with additional parking to the rear of the property. Tom added: “There’s a small garden to the front and a wonderful south west facing walled garden to the rear, which is a very attractive feature of this fabulous property. A substantial flagged terrace adjoins the house, with sweeping lawned areas beyond and some mature trees. The outside space really complements the home and anyone wanting a beautiful village home on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park really should book a viewing.”
