Smithy Gill Barn, Mallerstang, Kirkby Stephen

Guide price

An exceptional opportunity to convert a redundant barn into a two bedroomed camping barn with adjoining 4.94 acres or thereabouts of agricultural land, situated in the heart of the Eden Valley.

With living space to the ground floor and bedroom accommodation to the first floor, the property was granted planning consent under planning reference 07/0300 by Eden District Council.

Mallerstang is situated in the upper part of the Eden valley which carries a steep history including the remains of Pendragon Castle. Ideal for outdoor enthusiasts and recreational activities, the location is popular amongst cyclists and walkers, with a stunning backdrop of open countryside and spectacular views.

Situated approximately 8 miles south of Kirkby Stephen, the surrounding areas are easily accessible. The subject property is located directly off the B6259 and has excellent access from here.

The planning consent has had a commencement of works acknowledged and as such the planning remains extant. With excellent scope to create accommodation for recreational purposes the property offers a superb opportunity for holiday letting investment. Please note that the planning does restrict the barn being utilised as a sole and principal residence.

In addition to the camping barn opportunity itself there is the added benefit of the land adjoining the barn which extends in all to 4.94 acres or thereabouts and currently provides a single enclosure of productive agricultural grassland which is ideal for livestock and agricultural purposes. The land does offer excellent opportunities for alternative uses to include parking area or similar, subject to gaining planning consent.

The land is of interest to those looking to explore carbon opportunities and biodiversity net gain as well as those looking for woodland opportunities.

We understand that services are available close to the property including a mains electricity supply and spring water supply, and with B4RN broadband being available within the locality.

This is an opportunity not to be missed, and is truly a unique location and proposition.
