Whilst the hamlet boasts scenic, rural surroundings, it is actually located within a mile of the main A65, being just a short drive away from all the local amenities. Nestled between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty the location assures stunning scenery. Walks can be enjoyed right from your doorstep, with a path leading from the property boundary directly to the pretty village of Burton-In-Lonsdale, just 20 minutes away on foot.

Bideber Mill is approached via a long private driveway which passes under a historic bridge and opens out into the expansive grounds of the property. There is ample parking for several cars within various designated areas. Access to the adjoining land, garage and workshop is by a separate gravel roadway. The current owners use the west, former rear, entrance into the main home, as their everyday entrance. This is conveniently located just off the parking area. A partially glazed hardwood door opens into the light and spacious entrance lobby, with high ceilings and painted exposed former external stone walls- creating a fantastic feature to welcome you in to this characterful home. The floors are finished with practical stone flags and there is ample space for the storage of coats and shoes. Immediately off the entrance lobby is the bright garden room. This useful and multifunctional living space boasts glazing to the west facing wall and French doors that open out onto the top terrace of the the garden. This is a fantastic space to relax in, especially in spring/ summer time when the extensive panorama of the open fields and rolling countryside really comes to life, and stunning sunsets fill the view in the evenings. Steps lead down from the lobby into the entrance hall, a further practical space with stone flagged floors, complete with exposed ceilings beams.

Within what would have formerly been the barn to the corn mill sits a versatile annexe which has previously been utilised as an independent holiday let but has now been seamlessly reincorporated into the main accommodation of the house. The 'annexe' boasts a small cosy sitting room/snug with private external access leading to a patio garden, a cloak room with WC and boiler housing , a lovely dining room, cottage style kitchen and a beautiful double bedroom and ensuite shower room to the first floor. This previously successful holiday let is also ideal for dependant relatives or even just a great private retreat for guests. As with most of the property, the space is filled with charming characterful features and bespoke joinery craftsmanship, with stunning exposed ceiling beams, lintels and woodwork.

The entrance hall also leads you through into the main house, firstly coming to what would have been the original house of the corn mill. This large room is now a lovely open plan reception space complete with a cosy living area centred on a large electric stove, set upon a bespoke sandstone hearth and lintel above, and space for a dining table and chairs. The charm doesn't stop there, as the room is filled with exposed wooden ceiling beams, lintels above the door frames and deep window sills offering pretty window seats from which to enjoy the lovely garden outlook. An external door, formerly the front entrance, leads into a porch and further out onto another flagged patio overlooking the south facing landscaped garden.

The bespoke kitchen fitted by local Ramwell Classic Interiors has been handcrafted to create a homely and inviting space. Finished with traditional painted shaker style units topped with solid oak worktops, they encompass a Britannia Rangemaster cooker with a 6 ring ceramic hob, idyllically set within a mosaic stone tiled inglenook. There is also space for a dishwasher and an integrated fridge and a double Belfast sink completes the country kitchen feel. A dual aspect allows for plenty of natural light and there is even space in here for a more informal dining setting. Adjoining the kitchen there is a useful utility room with space for a washing machine, dryer and fridge freezer. Further external access can be found from here out onto another spacious patio area, the perfect sun trap from which to enjoy alfresco dining during the warmer months, and stunning sunsets across the fields.

The open plan bespoke, handcrafted oak staircase leads up from the main reception space to the first floor. There are a further three double bedrooms here, each offering their own unique charm and equally stunning views across the different aspects. The master bedroom boasts views over the east elevation, perfectly placed for the best of the sunrises over the rolling countryside. The ensuite bathroom is fully tiled with a walk in double shower and a handcrafted vanity sink unit. The family bathroom has been recently renovated, featuring a roll top claw foot bath and stylish half wooden panelling to the walls. 

Sunset View A fantastic addition to an already abundant package, Sunset View is a lovely one bedroom holiday cottage created from the conversion of a garage and store building. This popular space is the perfect holiday getaway, complete with an open plan dining kitchen and living room, double bedroom and a contemporary ensuite shower room. French doors lead out onto a private garden area with a small patio /seating area, lawn, vegetable garden and green house. The cottage has integral access to the single garage which doubles as a utility and drying room, boasting an electric remote control up and over door. Within the building are three separate loft spaces, two with loft ladders, ideal for extra storage. 

Workshop Whether you are looking for the ultimate man cave or a fully functional commercial workshop with an office and kitchen area, the detached workshop is a versatile and sizeable space. Adjoining there is also an additional attached single garage.

The grounds of Bideber Mill are an absolute tranquil haven from which you can enjoy the peace and fresh air of the far stretching surrounding countryside. They have been the labour of love for the present owners, meticulously maintained and landscaped to offer pristine gardens that all the family can enjoy. With long stretching lawns, patios, fruit orchards and even a handcrafted timber gazebo and kids play area; this garden can also truly be enjoyed throughout the seasons. Stone flagged patios and pathways offer fantastic social and seating areas that benefit from having sunlight from dawn until dusk. There is even a picture perfect naturally sourced stream that trickles along through the garden, creating a serene sound, beautifully built within matching stone to the patio. From the both the lower garden and upper driveway levels, access can be gained into the adjoining pasture land (approximately 7.5 acres in two fields, available by separate negotiation) which is perfect for those looking to create their very own smallholding.
