Beautiful inside and out, it s little wonder that holidaymakers flock to The Byre, at Stanhope, for a relaxing retreat, a getaway among peace, tranquillity and stylish surroundings.

A ready-made business, the property could continue as a successful holiday let having been converted in 2018 and renovated to the highest standard. Its contemporary interior blends perfectly with the period charm of the former barn providing a comfortable and cosy countryside stay.

Alternatively, who wouldn t want to live in such a lovely a picturesque setting and call the grade II listed barn home?

Exposed stone and sliding sash cottage-style windows provide character in keeping with the barn s age, but in all other aspects its interior is modern. The ground floor is open plan providing a social space bringing the family and visitors together.

The kitchen is an excellent size with a peninsular breakfast bar and generous worktops; stainless steel appliances are integrated keeping the look sleek and uncluttered.

There is plenty of space for a comfortable snug area and dining for at least eight people. French doors open out onto the front garden and patio area for outdoor dining when the weather allows.

The same large tiles run throughout the ground floor to enhance the feeling of space and there is underfloor heating for added comfort. Double doors leading to the lounge can be left open to extend the space even further or closed to provide a cosy place in which to relax.

There are three bedrooms upstairs. The large master bedroom is a lovely room and overlooks the river and across the garden to the fell beyond. With an attractive en suite shower room, it has the feel of a real retreat. Two further double, characterful bedrooms are serviced by the family bathroom.


Like the interior, the outside spaces are immaculate and comprise a gravelled drive and parking and a lawned garden to the front from which to sit in the sun and enjoy the sounds of nature.

There is more, should a new owner wish to take up the option of also purchasing, by separate negotiation, a stunning shepherd hut. Dilly Hill Den is available to also rent out and offers accommodation for a couple or a family with a young child. It has been cleverly fitted with two beds, a dining area, kitchen, a shower room and wood-burning stove for the ultimate in self-contained living. It even comes with a hot tub and could continue as a holiday let or be an extension to home or an exceptional home office.

The Byre is reached along a private lane alongside Stanhope Burn within the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The landscape is the main pull to the area and offers excellent walking country and the chance to be outdoors, often in solitude.

The property is close to the village which has shops, services and pubs and is reached by main road links and by rail to Durham. Local attractions include the Weardale heritage railway which runs special steam trains, the Durham Dales Centre, an open-air swimming pool and Weardale Ski Club.
