Carden Laithe is situated in a tranquil location nestling within the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the outskirts of Cracoe readily accessible to Grassington and Skipton.

The barn presents a blank canvas opportunity for a Purchaser to progress planning with a view to creating either two dwellings or a sizeable single dwelling depending upon personal requirements and planning.

The barn has the benefit of external grounds extending to approximately 300 square metres and further land may be available by separate negotiation.

Cracoe is an attractive village set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is well served by local amenities including a primary school, a village hall, a café, a public house and a bus service.  Further facilities are available in the market town of Skipton approximately 5 miles distant with the ever popular Grassington approximately 4 miles to the north.


Freehold with vacant possession upon completion.


Prospective Purchasers will need to make their own enquiries regarding the availability of services and costs of connection.


The barn is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and planning enquiries should be made to the Yorkshire Dales National Park Planning Department.

Carden Laithe is a ‘roadside barn’ and therefore would be considered suitable for conversion to residential use.  The National Park policy requires the use of ‘Roadside Barns’ to be restricted to ‘Local Occupancy’ or ‘short stay holiday lets’ which is enforced by way of an S.106 Agreement.


Access is directly from Thorpe Lane. The barn benefits from a private spring water supply. The Vendor will grant a permanent easement to the Purchaser to lay the necessary cables across their retained land to create an electricity connection.  Enquiries have been made with National Power Grid to determine the cost of making a new connection.


The barn is offered for sale via the Joint Agents by private treaty at a guide price of £250,000.  The Vendor however reserves the right to conclude the sale by any other method.  To make an offer or raise any queries, please contact Jeff Crabtree at WBW Surveyors or Neil Bland at Neil J Bland Ltd by email:
