Fancy living near the Yorkshire Shepherdess and having the Yorkshire Dales in your back garden?
Now is your opportunity, as a property with 54.5 acres of land is available to buy for £255,000 near Ravenseat Farm, home to shepherdess Amanda Owen, her husband of 21 years Clive, and their nine children.
The catch is that the house and adjoining barn are derelict and off-grid, with no mains services but with access to natural water on the site.
The family and remote Ravenseat farm feature in the popular Channel 5 show Our Yorkshire Farm, as well as the best-selling book The Yorkshire Shepherdess.
Amanda Owen is pictured with her family, consisting of her husband Clive, and their children Raven, Reuben, Miles, Edith, Violet, Sidney, Annas, Clementine, and Nancy
The nearby property for sale for £255k is called Carter’s Cottage and has a similar feel to Ravenseat due to the beautiful North Yorkshire countryside
There are no mains services to the former cottage or the land but there is a natural water supply at various points
The property for sale is called Carter’s Cottage and has a similar feel to Ravenseat as it is surrounded by plenty of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.
However, it does not currently include a habitable home. Instead, there is a derelict stone cottage that would need to be converted before it can be occupied – or even rented out as a holiday home – as well as an adjoining stone barn.
The property for sale is in Arkengarthdale, which is a dale on the east side of the Pennines in North Yorkshire.
There are no mains services to the former cottage or land, but there is a natural water supply at various points. The property is on the market for £255,000 via estate agents H&H Land & Estates.
Amanda runs Ravenseat farm with her husband Clive. She says hundreds of curious fans come to visit in hopes of catching a glimpse of her or her children

It is possible to make the area nearby your regular holiday spot – or even your permanent base – as the property for sale is around 14 miles from Ravenseat Farm.
The building needs a lot of work has plenty of scope to become a family house or holiday home, depending on budgets and planning permission
Land has become increasingly sought-after amid the pandemic’s so-called ‘race for space’ among buyers.
Daniel Copley, of property website Zoopla, said: ‘If you’re tempted to make the move from the city to the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, this cottage and 54.5 acres of pasture land is brimming with potential and has a truly stunning location overlooking the Yorkshire Dales.’
The property for sale is on an elevated position on the east side of Arkengarthdale.
Reeth is around four miles to the east, with the larger market town of Richmond about 14 miles to the east.
