The saying ‘an Englishman’s home is his castle’ sums up this place perfectly.

The Grade II listed building is known locally as ‘The Castle’ thanks to its exterior features but it is actually a former stable lodge built in 1852 by the local landowner, Akroyd.

It is on the market for just £160,000 - a fraction of what it would cost down south.
