A deceptively spacious four double bedroomed detached village property tastefully decorated and well maintained throughout with the added benefit of it's own 1 ACRE PADDOCK and stabling for 4 horses, ideal for those seeking equestrian use directly adjacent to the family home. 


Cowthorpe is a rural village some 4.2 miles north of the market town of Wetherby. Situated some 2 miles from the A1/M1 and within 10.3 miles of Harrogate and 14.7 miles of York. Located on the banks of the River Nidd and surrounded by open countryside the village has a Church dedicated to St Michael. The church appears to have been built by a Brian Roucliffe, and consecrated in 1458. 

Cowthorpe is well known locally on account of an enormous tree, called the Cowthorpe Oak; the circumference of which, close by the ground, was 60 feet, and its principal limb (which is propped) extended to 48 feet from the bole. This venerable oak, now removed had a leading branch which fell, by a storm, in the year 1718; which when measured was found to contain five tons. 


Travelling along Wetherby Lane towards Cowthorpe, on entering the village the road becomes Oak road. Continue through the village and "Oakdene" is on the left hand side identified by a Renton & Parr For Sale board.
