Within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and situated between the village of Cracoe and the hamlet of Thorpe, Leaps Ghyll enjoys splendid rural scenery yet is only 7 miles from Skipton and 4 miles from Grassington, each with a wide range of social, educational and shopping amenities. Cracoe, just over a mile away, has a Primary School, farm shop and the popular Devonshire Arms public house. 

Nestling into a hollow off the single track tarmac lane, the setting of Leaps Ghyll is absolutely beautiful. Its gardens extend to about 0.274 acres of a wooded dell, with a pretty stream running through, and at the foot of the garden are beautiful views across adjoining farmland. 

In 1984 full planning permission was granted by the Yorkshire Dales National Park (consent no YD.5.70.4B) to convert Leaps Ghyll into a two bedroomed semi-detached dwelling, and whilst work was started some years ago, it was not completed. To assist purchasers, various documents are available for inspection on request from Dale Eddison, or online with these particulars, including a Structural Survey (carried out by AWP Consulting Engineers in December 2017), the YDNP 1984 consent with drawings, and a quotation dated January 2018 for a borehole to supply water from Dales Water Services Ltd. There is no doubt that upon completion of the required renovation work, Leaps Ghyll will be an absolutely charming property, perfect as either a permanent or second home.

DIRECTIONS Leave Skipton on the B6265 in the direction of Grassington. After 5 miles proceed through Cracoe village and at the sharp left-hand bend at the far side of the village, proceed straight on onto Thorpe Lane (where there is a Dale Eddison for sale sign and directional arrow). After 1.3 miles you'll reach a parking lay-by on the left - it is best to park here, enjoy the amazing view, and then walk the short distance (30 yards) down the lane to where Leaps Ghyll is located on the left-hand side, identified by a Dale Eddison for sale sign.
