Patrick Stewart owned a property in the north of England for 25 years

Patrick Stewart is famous across the world but it was a secluded part of the UK where he chose to live for many years.

The actor owned a property in Hebden, near Grassington until recently.

The property was based in the historical village in Yorkshire.

Patrick owned the secluded stone property until it was listed in 2016 for £535,000.

The Grade II home was very private, nestled among the Yorkshire dales.

It was known as Scar Top house and was built in the 1680s.

Despite being hundreds of years old, the property has everything anyone would need today.

There are three reception rooms, four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It also had a separate garage and workshop.

Inside, it had a rustic decor with tiled floors and exposed wooden beams throughout the property.

There was a large fireplace for cold nights and a sizeable garden for warmer summer evenings.

Grassington is a small market village rooted in history, according to its website.

It said: "Grassington is a small town located in North Yorkshire, England. It has a long and rich history dating back to the Anglo-Saxon era.

"The town was originally known as 'Grastentun', which means 'the farm of Graste'. The name was later changed to 'Grasington' and then to its current form, 'Grassington'."

Patrick is one of many actors who have swapped Hollywood for the UK.
