Patrick Brompton Hall dates from the early seventeenth century and stands in just under seven acres of well-established garden and grounds on the edge of a North Yorkshire village. It is a particularly appealing country house, grand and gracious but built on a relatively modest scale. Its principal reception rooms and bedrooms face south across sweeping lawns and parkland providing a timeless, pastoral view that is one of the chief delights of this historic property's setting. Alongside is a detached Georgian stable block that has in recent years been part converted into four stylish cottage apartments to accompany the four stables. Patrick Brompton Hall has been in the hands of the Ropner family since 1958 and was formerly the home of jockey Billy Nevett who won the Derby in 1945.

• Substantial house totalling over 11,000 sq ft
• Versatile accommodation arranged over three floors
• South facing orientation over a parkland setting
• Income from four holiday cottage apartments
• Renewable energy biomass system
• House, outbuildings, gardens and land totalling some 6.86 acres
• Further 57 acres of land with sporting and mineral rights available by separate negotiation (Lot 2)
• Convenient for Bedale, Thirsk, Northallerton and A1(M)

The main house dates circa 1703 with the east and west wings added some two hundred years later. For generations Patrick Brompton Hall – also known as Dalesend - has been a family home and has been sympathetically updated and maintained in the hands of the Ropner family including the conversion of the adjacent greenhouse into a charming pool. Two new bathrooms were fitted in 2022 and the stables converted into holiday apartments in 2014.

There are four, beautifully proportioned reception rooms with south facing views and a full-height curved bay in the drawing room that opens to the lower terrace where stone steps rise to the upper pool terrace. The swimming pool with pool room is powered by green energy. A traditional kitchen breakfast room has a two-oven LPG Aga along with an adjacent larder, pantry and utility room giving access to the garaging.

On the first floor the two substantial bedroom suites enjoy the advantage of parkland views whilst the lion's share of the bedroom accommodation extends northwards and includes a nursery wing with sitting room. The loft room is a massive space of some 45 ft x 37 ft. It is fully boarded with a window, power and light and offers great scope to be developed into a games room or annexe.

The whole property is shielded by woodland and bands of trees with the village road skirting the boundary. Brompton Beck winds its way on the eastern edge, home to brown trout. The formal gardens sit in front of the house along with the sheltered sun terrace which enjoys an open aspect, and a ha-ha divides the lawns from the parkland.

At the eastern end of the village the drive winds its way, crossing an arched stone bridge over the beck, passing a pond and arriving at the turning circle and parking area alongside the outbuildings.

A further drive passes through the majestic wrought iron gates that separate the Hall from the stable block and sweeps in front of the house.

There are four cottage apartments converted from the hayloft, tack room and grooms' accommodation all within the stable block that faces the meandering beck and bluebell woods. One is on the ground floor and three are on the first floor, accessed by an external staircase. They are all open plan loft-style apartments featuring the original old beams and iron trusses and are fitted to the highest specification. Four open cabins are accessed via a raised boardwalk through the bluebell woods.

The 200-year old stable block has power, light, water. There are four enclosed stables all with windows and two secure stores. The pavilion was designed by eminent architect, Sir William Whitfield, in the 1980s and has hand painted murals. It is currently used as an office.

Patrick Brompton is a Conservation village in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire convenient for the popular market towns of Bedale and Leyburn, for Swaledale and Wensleydale as well as for the motorway network. First mentioned in the Domesday Book, the village has The Green Tree country pub, historic St Patrick's Church and the meandering Brompton Beck that runs through the village. The nearest mainline railway station is nine miles away in Northallerton; there is also a station in Thirsk and the nearest international airport is Leeds Bradford, about an hour's drive away. Harrogate lies some 30 miles away and the northern cities of Leeds, Newcastle and York are all easily accessible.
