Dating back to the 1800s, Scaw Ghyll was previously three cottages for textile workers, running from a water wheel connected to the ghyll, which now runs underground. In addition, a buttery formed the rear barn area of the property, serving the local dairy farm. The three cottages and barn have been transformed into a wonderful family home, with original features serving as reminders of its rich history.

Just a five-minute walk away from the picturesque village of Grassington, the setting for the popular television show, All Creatures Great and Small, the renovated and restored home is a hidden haven.
