For sale: The Yorkshire house with a Hollywood film star claim to fame

This characterful home was created from the former Bell Busk railway station house, which closed in 1959 and has an impressive claim to fame.

The house and platform were used as a film set in 1951 during the filming of “Another Man's Poison” starring screen legend Bette Davis.

It was later turned into a successful bed and breakfast and, most recently, was updated and turned back into a home.
