Live/work unit for sale

I am on the move further down the Yorkshire Dales but this will not happen completely until the mill has been sold. I have a potential buyer so fingers crossed but in the meantime it’s still on the market. If you are interested contact J.R. Hopper, estate agents on 01969 622936. The unit was converted from a redundant spinning mill alongside Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre in Sedbergh. It has a large workshop/studio with retail space opening onto a patio overlooking the river and fells. The living accommodation comprises of a large kitchen/diner, stunning lounge, 2 bedrooms, office, bathroom and good storage.

New home

I have bought a new quirky property in Carperby in Wensleydale but will have several months of renovation to do and cover the 50 shades of grey paintwork!!!! It has a wing off the hall with a studio, utility/dye room and storage perfect for a creative person. It has a front and back garden something I have missed coming from a farm. I also have an extra bedroom for my grandchildren. The views from the property are stunning down the dale and up to the fells.


New Commercial Unit

This unit I now have but will not be fully operational until the New Year. The unit is larger than I have now with parking right outside the door. It is in the Reeth Dales Centre in Swaledale. It is 9 miles from my house up and over Grinton Moor which will be challenging in bad weather. I feel reassured my van is a rare 4×4 now with all weather tyres.

The centre has an interesting mix of creative units from furniture maker and gallery, embroidery, glass, millenary, cheese maker, artist, sculptures etc. Reeth has great pubs, cafes, gallery, gift shops, ice cream parlor, B&B’s and walks for all abilities in every direction and the drive here is stunning. In the winter many places close for the season.  

Business will remain at the mill until I let you all know. If you wish to visit please phone to check I’m here, Please be patient if when you phone I’m not here; leave your phone number slowly and clearly and I will get back to you asap.
