Deeside House, along with The Coach House, and self-contained apartment offers a rare opportunity to purchase an existing business with significant development potential in a quiet location within the dales.
Cowgill is a small hamlet, with a pub and the highest railway station in England with fantastic commuting links to the nearby cities and towns. Just a few miles away is the village of Dent well known for its links to cobbled streets and pink granite Fountain dedicated to the Segwick family. There are two pubs, cafes, local grocery store, church and primary school. Jut a short drive you will find the larger towns of Sedbergh, Hawes with further amenities.
Deeside House itself is an extensive, detached Grade II listed former shooting lodge built in 1825 by local land-owner, farmer and benefactor John Elam whose family are remembered with affection with memorial stones in nearby Cowgill church. Typical of its era Deeside boasts wealth and character throughout with the high ceilings, large rooms and good proportions one would expect in a house of this standard. The upstairs windows are predominantly the original beautiful trellis iron work with secondary internal glazing, with double glazed windows downstairs. There is oil fired central heating and a pressurised hot water system. It is currently used as a self catering establishment for large parties, but would be perfect for a retreat, luxury hotel or other business uses. On the ground floor, there is a well equipped, catering standard kitchen & pantry, drying/boot room, large games room, offices, dining room and living room as well as a double bedroom and en-suite wet room suitable for limited mobility use. Upstairs are a further six double bedrooms, all with modern en-suite facilities and an additional house bathroom.
Fixtures & fittings in the house, as well as the website and forward bookings, are included.
The Coach House is prime for renovation with restoration plans approved by the YDNPA to create a 3/4 bedrooms cottage using the existing rooms and garage also with an independent apartment within the Coach House. This has a sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and bedroom and its own oil fired heating system. Plans drawn up by acclaimed heritage building architect Paul Crosby and include the option of restoring the former function room/dance hall as a living room or as a fourth (master) bedroom. It measures 28′ x 15′ and it was there that former owners Lord Henry and Lady Olivia Cavendish-Bentinck hosted dance parties for their distinguished social circle until the 1930s.
The grounds are substantial with lawns surrounding round the house, leading down to the river. There are mature trees and shrubs.
Deeside House has a dedicated 10-transmitter Wi-Fi system covering every room in the House plus a good proportion of the garden. This is connected to the much-acclaimed B4RN hyperfast fibre broadband system providing 1GB/s throughout the House. Deeside Coach House has its own independent B4RN connection providing 1GB/s. EE/4G have recently activated a nearby mobile phone transmitter giving good coverage and Wi-Fi back-up.
Deeside House is currently turning over £80k+ with bookings going forward over a year including numerous repeat bookings.
