This is the story of Laykin cottage, Swaledale, North Yorkshire

We first saw Laykin cottage in August 2005. It was advertised in the Darlington and Stockton Times newspaper. The asking price was very reasonable for a four bedroom cottage so we were interested to discover why there were undeveloped barns going for the same price.

The cottage was in Low Row, but we didn't know where it was and it was hard to find because the road to it was in a poor state of repair and there were many overgrown bushes in the way.

When we found it we fell in love with it at once. The views of Swaledale and the river Swale were so amazing, but we could see that it needed lots of work doing to it.

It took quite a while to arrange a viewing and see the inside. Charltons were only arranging block viewings and had no plans to make it easy for us!
