Treacle Mansion by Colin Metcalf

A tiny cottage near Kirbymoorside in the Yorkshire Dales. Not a very inspiring property until you see the view.

The current owner is living in the caravan that you can just see to the left while he renovates the cottage.

    It will be a beautiful place when it is fixed up – with that vie, the house is secondary

  • Very many thanks Shulie!

    I could live there, I think. No problem! What a grand wee house. The renovation must be a labour of love!

  • Thanks Mike. I could live there spring, summer and autumn but not sure about the winter. It is a bit off the beaten track.
