Description

Stouphill Gate is a truly unique property set in a quiet, edge of village location, yet easily accessible to amenities.

This superb, character property is on the edge of the village. Ravenstonedale is an unspoilt, picturesque village at the foot of the Howgills in Cumbria, part of the newly extended Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority. It has two good pubs, a nursery school and is an ideal base for exploring on foot or by car. It is situated 7 miles from the Market Town of Kirkby Stephen and 8 miles from Sedbergh both having secondary schools, pubs, restaurants, doctors, dentist and a good range of shops and weekly outdoor market.

Stouphill Gate dates back to 1820 and the cottage 1720, both retain many original character features. The property offers flexible accommodation with great potential for further development and commercial opportunities.

The main house is a traditional Dales farmhouse, offering quality accommodation with original character features and charm throughout. The current owners have lived in the property for over 20 years, during that time they have renovated and modernised the property creating a highly efficient and insulated family home.

On the ground floor is a pleasant entrance hall leading to a bespoke, quality farmhouse kitchen. There is a dining room, a snug and sitting room, all with stoves. The conservatory was added 9 years ago and it created a gorgeous, bright living room with panoramic views over open fields to the fells. To the rear is a traditional dales pantry complete with stone cheese shelves. Upstairs are three very good sized double bedrooms, one having an ensuite and there is a modern family bathroom.

The current owner in the past ran a B&B from the property, having two bedrooms accessed from outside. There are two further bedrooms, a double bedroom with wet room (kitted for disabled use) and another ensuite double bedroom above, accessed via an external stone staircase. These could be re-offered as B&B rooms using the snug as a dining room or would create ideal AirBnB type properties.

Stouphill Gate Cottage has been running as an independent holiday let up until 2019. It was let via Sykes Cottages and averaged 35 weeks per year. The owners never re-opened post-covid due to retirement. The cottage is two storey and boasts a wealth of charm and original character features including stone flag flooring, original fireplace and bread oven, exposed beams, lintels and niches. On the ground floor is a cosy sitting room with original fireplace, bathroom and kitchen with a door out to a private garden. Upstairs are two double bedrooms both with views over open fields to Mallerstang edge. This makes a perfect holiday let.

The grounds total approx. 6.5 acres, this includes the cobbles and gravel drive which provide ample parking for 7/8 vehicles. There are also two good garages and a cart shed. The gardens are primarily to the front of the property, and are South East facing so enjoy lots of sun and glorious views over open fields to the fells. The field in front of the house is currently used for grazing and has roadside access. There is also a paddock which leads down to another field, pond and woodland area.

Stouphill Gate offers a great amount of development and business potential. It also lends itself to becoming a large family home, with an additional income. Viewing really is necessary to fully appreciate the extent of this property.
