Nestled to the north of the thriving market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, since 2016, Barbon is now within the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with miles of walks to be explored from the doorstep.

Along the main road into the village, turn right along a quiet lane where a large double garage with an electronically-controlled, shutter-style door and separate courtyard parking space are available. Clad outside by the original stone from the former barn building - and its original slate roof - the authentic timbers of Hill Top Barn are now handsomely exposed within.

Separate to the home, the double garage offers space for two small cars side by side - or one larger car - alongside plentiful storage. There is also a utility area, fully furnished by H&M of Ingleton with plumbing for a washing machine and dryer together with a sink, draining board and cupboards.

Open a gate from the lane into the sunny, south-facing courtyard garden, professionally re-designed and re-landscaped by local garden landscape company Hortus in 2014. Sit and sip your morning coffee on the circular patio, surrounded by slate chippings and beam-enclosed borders brimming with colourful planting. Perfectly private, soak up the sunshine and enjoy the easy pleasure of a garden that is incredibly low-maintenance.

From the courtyard garden, open the glazed door and step inside, where the evocative charm of this rustic former-barn with its quaint alcoves and thick, hewn walls emanate character and warmth. Directly ahead, make your way into the reading room. Cosy and quiet, this versatile space could also serve as a music room, television room, study or crafting room.

Redecorated in 2021, new carpets have also been laid throughout by Carpet Inn of Kirkby Lonsdale (who also upgraded the flooring in the kitchen), with each internal door lovingly restained for a fresh and welcoming feel.

Leaving the reading room, turning left, discover the cloakroom on your immediate right, furnished with wash basin and WC and set across from a spacious double storage cupboard with space for coats, shoes, walking boots and cleaning essentials. Storage is a mainstay of this home.

Continue on into the living area, a room swimming in light, courtesy of the floor-to-ceiling glazed barn door, framing pretty views out to the garden. Warmth emanates from the large brick fireplace with log-burning stove. Another deep window to the opposite side ensures this room is light and bright throughout the day. Beams enrich the ceiling above, infusing the room with character.

Decorated with grey carpet and furnished with checkered sofa and solid wood Cotswold Company furniture, the contemporary accents balance the heritage feel of the more traditional elements of this home. Relax, reading in an armchair by the barn door, enjoying the warmth and light.

Continuing past an exposed brick pillar, enter the dining room, where beams continue to extend overhead. Gather with family and friends around the the large, 6-foot dining table or open the glazed door and enjoy alfresco dining on the circular stone patio. Hill Top Barn is a home made for entertaining.

Follow Hill Top Barn's easy flow to the spacious kitchen, where contemporary conveniences blend with traditional comforts. An abundance of storage can be found within the H&M of Ingleton cabinetry, installed in 2017, with a bespoke dresser for plates. Appliances include a large Rangemaster dual-fuel cooker, Neff dishwasher, American-style Whirlpool fridge-freezer and a large sink and drainer.

Keen cooks can entertain with ease, with pleasant views out to the neighbouring fields, grazed by flocks of sheep.

Take the stairs up from the living room to the large gallery landing, with elevated views over the courtyard, and where you can pause and admire the birds on the feeders.

Directly ahead, on the left arrive at the main bedroom, where a high, angled ceiling is dressed in beams. Quiet and comfortable, there is ample space for a double bed. Dressed in soothing neutral shades, wake up to views over the fields. Refresh in the ensuite, re-modelled in February 2017 by Ellershaw Property Renovations and furnished with wash basin, WC, heated towel radiator and new Mira Azora shower. Outside on the landing, a full height cupboard houses the Gas Combi Boiler and provides excellent further storage.

Returning to the landing, continue along, beneath the original exposed beams, before turning right into another bedroom, with space for a single bed - or even bunk beds. Beams extend above with storage available in the cupboard above. Light pours in through a large Velux above.

Next door on the right arrive at a third comfortable bedroom, currently furnished with a double bed and filled with light from the large Velux. Beams line the angled ceiling.

At the end of the gallery landing, on the right, make your way into a spacious double bedroom, currently used as an office - but easily convertible back into a double bedroom - featuring exposed beams and furnished with a handmade desk with filing cabinets and storage drawers. Designed to maximise the views, work looking out over the countryside vistas. Fitted wardrobes provide plenty of storage space, with additional storage above. Hill Top Barn is served by a B4RN super-fast fibreoptic broadband connection, which can easily be activated.

At the end of the landing, an attractive bathroom, furnished with deep air-bath, electric shower over, wash-basin and WC.
