Helmbar House is a beautiful, former farmhouse in the quiet rural location of Outhgill. It sits in a beautiful location with views of Wild Boar Fell and Mallerstang Edge.

Outhgill is a hamlet in Mallerstang. It lies 5 miles (8 km) south of Kirkby Stephen. In the 19th century, as the main hamlet at the centre of the dale, Outhgill had an inn, a post office, a smithy, the parish church and a Methodist chapel. Of these, only the church survives.

The property, a former Coaching Inn in the 1800's, underwent a full refurbishment in 1999. It has ample parking, space for a garage, a beautiful well established suntrap garden & orchard. The old piggery now makes a handy garden store.

There is a conservatory with a lovely outlook, a large dining kitchen with Rayburn. Large utility room. The living room has a wood burning stove. There is also a cosy snug and a separate dining room/office. There are 4 good bedrooms and family bathroom. There is also a large light en-suite Attic master room.

The property was a former pub, the Kings Head. There are many period features retained throughout the property and plenty of character.
