Rylstone is an attractive rural hamlet mid-way between Skipton and Grassington, famous for its duck pond from where the ducks are often seen waddling through the village. Rylstone nestles between Hetton and Cracoe, so that The Angel and Devonshire Arms (both well-known public houses and eateries) are less than a mile distant. Skipton and Grassington are circa 4 miles away, both offering an excellent range of shops, social/sporting amenities and schools, as the village is within the catchment area for both Upper Wharfedale school at Threshfield and the Girls' High and Ermysteds at Skipton, and Cracoe Primary School is just a mile away.  

Keepers Cottage is set at the top of Back Lane (which is a No Through Road) and has been a much-loved and cared for family home for over 30 years. The rolling countryside of the Yorkshire Dales National Park can be seen from most windows, and the house stands within extensive grounds (approximately 1.29 acres in total) - ideal for anyone wanting to keep a small pony or chickens! There are exposed beams to all ground floor rooms, and a homely sense of character throughout. Central heating is provided by an oil-fired radiator system and many of the windows are double glazed.

OUTSIDE Keepers Cottage is approached by a chippings driveway which sweeps through the lawns to a wide parking area and DOUBLE GARAGE measuring 17'0" x 16'4" with up-and-over door, rear courtesy door, boarded storage, shelving, electric/power and the oil-fired central heating boiler. Behind the garage is a COAL STORE which also houses the oil tank.

The gardens are a delightful feature of the property and although the present owners have kept the grassed areas neatly mowed, they would lend themselves to becoming a small paddock or a 'flora and fauna' environment. There are a number of matures trees and to the rear of the house is an attractive sheltered patio area with wisteria and rambling roses, and low stone walling to take advantage of the great views and south-facing position. There is a permissive pathway within the southern boundary of the property, meaning that the present owners have allowed neighbours to use the path as access into the village (it is not a public right of way). In total the site area extends to approximately 1.289 acres. 

SERVICES Mains electricity, sewerage and water are installed. Surface water drains to a soakaway. Natural gas is not available in the area. NOTE: Yorkshire Water have entered into an agreement to make no water charges to the owners of Keepers Cottage or their neighbours for 80 years from 1985, although sewerage charges are payable.
