The sale of Chevin End Farm and Guest House presents a rare opportunity to acquire the potential of either or both a small holding and a guest house created from imaginatively converted barns with courtyards enjoying a splendid rural setting and commanding panoramic rural views yet located less than two miles from the towns of Otley, Menston and Guiseley. The Bed and Breakfast business was developed and established many years ago by the current owners who are contemplating retirement. It has been run at a pace to suit their lifestyle which means that there could potentially be massive scope to further develop the already successful business. The current turnover is derived from offering well presented guest accommodation along with complimentary breakfasts served in the communal dining room. The business would ideally suit a husband and wife/family or partnership by virtue of the former self-contained farmhouse separate from the business which could afford a good standard of living.

The former farmhouse of character, itself offers improvement potential to suit individuals' needs and being of a good family size briefly comprises at ground floor level an entrance porch with a shower room off, lounge, living room, breakfast kitchen with a Rangemaster stove, utility room and a vaulted keeping cellar. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, three with en suite facilities. There are private lawned garden areas and the accommodation is offered with a propane gas fired heating system. The attached barn is of a good size providing ample storage and development potential subject to necessary consents being obtained.

Within the two storey stone property attached to the barn, which has an almost central through hallway leading to a rear entrance porch, there are three family rooms with en suites, a guest dining room with ample dining tables and chairs with space for approximately 20 covers, fitted kitchen, toilet and a utility/storage room.

The first detached converted barn to the right on entering the drive consists of a block of three single storey double bedrooms with en suites. The barns, surrounding a courtyard located at the far end of the drive, consist of a block of eleven single storey bedrooms with en suites including a twin room, six double bedrooms, four family rooms (including one disabled) and a storage/utilty room. The converted barn units have electric convector heaters and the windows in the main encapture superb rural views. These well presented rooms with built-in wardrobes and dressing tables have wi-fi, tea and coffee facilities and a colour television. Most have entrances onto courtyards providing ample parking and ideal for large group bookings such as weddings, christenings, funerals and walking groups.

The property enjoys an enviable semi-rural setting, a real tourist attraction on the edge of the Chevin, adjoining and overlooking stunning countryside, located between the picturesque village of Menston and Otley's active market town. Needless to say there are delightful scenic walks "on the door step", there are a number of local shops in nearby Menston including a railway station with main line links to Ilkley, Leeds, Bradford and beyond. More extensive amenities including boutique shops, everyday stores including Waitrose, Sainsburys and Asda supermarkets, traditional pubs, wine bars and reataurants to suit all tastes are available in Otley, Ilkley and Harrogate's fashionable Spa Town. Excellent social facilities include the Leeds Playhouse, lido pools and numerous sporting activities including rugby, cricket, golf, tennis and bowling clubs. The location is conveniently placed for access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park famous for its areas of outstanding natural beauty and the Leeds/Bradford International Airport is nearby at Yeadon
