Full description

Ing Hill Lodge is a substantial detached former hunting lodge, dating from the late Georgian period situated in the dale of Mallerstang, at the head of the Upper Eden Valley.

The house is just on the edge of the hamlet of Outhgill, just 4 miles from the market town of Kirkby Stephen with primary and secondary school, a good range of shops, pubs and restaurants, medical facilities and its weekly outdoor market. The Lake District National Park is only 30 minutes away and the Yorkshire Dales on the door step. There are uninterrupted views to the ruins of Pendragon Castle and Wild Boar Fell, with superb walks from the door.

The house is in an elevated position enjoying a commanding presence in the valley. It has been run as a Bed & Breakfast for a number of years and retains many original features such as decorative mouldings & covings, original shutters and a superb staircase with notable arched window. Downstairs, there is a good sized kitchen, dining room & sitting room as well as a separate office, WC and laundry room and a small sun room facing South. On the first floor, are three good double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, a further double bedroom & a house bathroom. There is also a small guest's kitchen.

In the late 1970's, the former stable block was converted to provide 4 one bedroom holiday cottages each with a sitting room, double bedroom, shower room and kitchen. The cottages have all been refurbished within the last couple of years and benefit from modern facilities, double glazing & LPG gas central heating sourced from the main house system. They have independent parking and offer peace & quiet in a beautiful setting.

The tarmac drive sweeps up to the house from the road leading to a good parking area for multiple vehicles. There is a front terrace with flags and borders and a rear patio area from the dining room with a recently constructed wildlife pond. The lawned garden leads off from the terrace with mature trees & borders. In the upper gardens, there is a little stone built barn which is currently used as a studio.

To the south of the property is a very useful, well maintained 80ft x 20ft workshop with power, light and water which could have a number of uses.

Ing Hill Lodge lies in approximately 2.5 acres of land including a filed in front of the house with roadside access. It offers a superb opportunity to run a "lifestyle" business of B&B, holiday cottage & possibly work from home or enjoy the simpler choice of a fabulous family home with four relatively straightforward holiday cottages.
