This beautiful three bedroom cottage is for sale, but it is located in the middle of nowhere and not accessible by road.

Three Blea Moor Cottages, Whernside, North Yorkshire, is a 20-minute walk from the nearest official car park.

The former railwayman’s property is completely surrounded by the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales.

If you buy it for the asking price of £300,000, it will need a complete refurbishment, with the walls being completely bare.

The property, located next to the furthest signal box in England on the Settle-Carlisle rail line, has no mains services available in the house.

When last occupied, electricity was generated by a windmill and water was carried by a trailer.

But you’ll have access to a bedroom that’s almost entirely blue, floor to ceiling – while another bedroom is the same but in purple.

Interested parties are advised that the nearest parking space is only suitable for 4×4 vehicles and quads.

Three Blea Moor Cottages is being sold by Fisher Hopper Estate Agents.

Fisher Hopper said: “The property presents an attractive investment, with a range of obvious potential business opportunities: private holiday home, unique AirBnB-style experience, dormitory or refreshment stop on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge route.

“Plans will be subject to the necessary permits – it’s in the heart of the national park – but for the right, visionary buyer there is great potential here.”

The cottage was originally built for workers by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway after the World Wars, and is the last surviving in a row of three properties.

The previous owner was John Myerscough, a recluse who was the subject of planning enforcement action by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority in 2010.

This was after storing a large number of scrap and waste vehicles in the field, including five disused oil tanks, a caravan, a small digger and two shipping containers.

He complied with the order and the site was cleared.

The house is part of the Three Peaks challenge in which around 200,000 people compete each year.
