The house has been extended and Barn rebuilt in the late 1900’s, the latter developed with garage, workshop, utility and office together with a self-contained 2 bedroomed first floor flat currently used for holiday lettings and now has unrestricted residential use. The buyers have the opportunity of gaining a significant additional income if required as both the properties have been successfully run as B&B and holiday accommodation for many years with a loyal following of repeat business as well as attracting new bookings from those seeking excellent walks straight from the door and onto the Limestone Way close by, or the outdoor activities available including cycling, riding, climbing, golf and places of cultural interest. Monyash has an excellent public house, café/bistro, village hall, ancient church, old chapel and a primary school which is in the catchment area for Lady Manners and St. Anselm’s prep school and college in Bakewell.
