That’s the puns over with — promise.
At barely 100 sq ft in size, the one-time lavatory block is too small to provide conventional accommodation but, subject to planning permission, could be converted into a camping barn or studio for an artist or photographer who should be inspired by the unique riverside location. Alternatively, it could be used for storage space by one of the villagers.
‘Renovating the block will require some imagination,’ says Tim Gower, of Robin Jessop. ‘But even tiny properties can be quite versatile. We sold a private recreational barn which has since been turned into an artist’s studio.
‘Aysgarth is in a national park, so getting planning permission for any major redevelopment of the site would be difficult, but the new owners would enjoy fishing rights from day one. There is also the space to build a small terrace garden on the roof.’
Puns have been flowing thick and fast in the Yorkshire Dales, as a former toilet block overlooking an iconic waterfall comes up for sale this month.
The tiny stone building, on the banks of the Aysgarth Falls, is attractive — and, according to agents Robin Jessop, you do not need to be, well, flushed to buy it, as the price tag is just £8,000.
For public convenience, and because this is no bog-standard sale, the property is being sold at auction, with no chain involved.
