Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

*EXCELLENT RESIDENTIAL AND LEISURE PROPERTY* The property offers a Victorian Hall, lodges, additional accommodation and equestrian facilities. This stunning country hall has a full wedding licence and is well serviced to provide a complete wedding experience, with excellent scope to grow beyond its current potential.This property was originally built in 1837 as
the seat of Thomas Dixon. Prior to being fully restored the hall has been home to the locally known Harris family and more recently the Pattinsons, a farming family who were instrumental in the production of semi skimmed milk. This historically important residence now offers an exciting opportunity.
Set in the heart of the Eden Valley the hall and grounds offer an exclusive leisure suite which has been sympathetically restored and improved, maintaining full character with Gothic style architecture, a stunning galleried landing, impressive spiral staircase and expansive ceiling heights.
The Main Hall offers a stunning entrance with a cantilever staircase which spirals through the centre of the property to an octagonal dome which
floods the property in natural light.
The superior Reception Rooms offer a stunning backdrop for living and wedding accommodation, with many feature rooms. There are eleven Bedrooms within the hall spread over the formal living space, the West wing and the ‘Doll’s House’ which is situated to the second floor.
The property is approached via a sweeping drive with the picturesque grounds wrapping around the residence itself. Mature gardens are made up of a rose garden, wooded walks, a quaint folly garden, sunken garden and the Kitchen garden which supports the local public house. The gardens are interspersed amongst an expanse of mature trees and shrubbery.
Additional accommodation is provided by the two bedroom cottage, The Carriage House, comprising quality self-catering living accommodation.
A further dwelling, Well Cottage, offers scope for expansion with planning permission in place for the conversion to a one bedroom cottage.
The lodge site has undergone significant works and now provides a stunning position and backdrop for the five lodges currently on site. A
sixth lodge is planned with services connected. The services would support additional lodges of up to 10 in total.
Since the completion of the Lodges there has been excellent interest levels and bookings have been well received, far exceeding expectations.
Well Cottage has planning permission in place with a survey being undertaken and available upon request.
There is potential for the stable and block providing eight stables to be replaced with a corporate hospitality facility. Full planning consent would need to be obtained for this.
This stunning country hall has a full wedding licence and is well serviced to provide a complete wedding experience. The feature rooms within the
hall and on-site marquee within the stunning grounds is a perfect venue. Again there is excellent scope to grow this element of the leisure suite to meet demand.
Equestrian facilities comprise eight stables, tackroom and an extensive ménage, together with 8.98 acres of grazing. The stabling offers the potential for further hospitality facilities to be provided on the site subject to the full planning consent being obtained.
Set a stone’s throw from the grounds is The Globe, the local public house serving the village of Calthwaite. The pub is currently occupied on a lease by the owners and is a superb addition to the hall and leisure facility. The pub currently has a healthy turnover and also provides additional accommodation.
