The Property

An opportunity of this kind rarely comes to the market, offering a well-established business and lifestyle property in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with regular custom, and huge potential to develop further if required.

Running as a successful business, High Broadwood Hall is a substantial and traditional stone-built farmhouse which has been renovated by the current owners with quality fixtures and fittings throughout whilst sympathetically retaining the charm and character of the property including exposed stone walls, original beams and wooden doors. Currently a family home of generous proportions with two attached holiday cottages, it has great potential to incorporate into the existing business or to remain as a private family dwelling. There are mature lawned gardens to the front together with a range of outbuildings, hardstanding for parking and several grazing paddocks extending to around 115 acres in all.

The open covered porch leads into the entrance vestibule and onwards through an arched oak door to the kitchen offering a fine range of units with complementary granite surfaces, glazed display cabinetry and solid oak floor. Integral appliances include a Rangemaster cooker with six burners, two ovens and a grill with an extractor over, plumbing for a dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. To one end of the kitchen is a useful pantry, whilst back across the entrance vestibule there is a utility and WC with deep Belfast sink and preparation area.

A step down from the kitchen leads to the dining room, a room of generous proportions with original beams to the ceiling, solid oak floor and a beautiful inglenook fireplace with exposed stone chimney breast and a multi-fuel stove with ambient lighting to the recess. Off the dining room a short hallway leads to an office and a downstairs bedroom with French doors to the side of the property and an en-suite shower room; both rooms could lend themselves to a host of other uses. A secondary staircase from the hallway leads to the upper floor and landing which is flooded with natural light and offers fabulous views over open countryside. This leads to a further bedroom with internal bi-folding doors and an en-suite shower room which is used as a business therapy room by the current owners. A second office is also located on this floor along with substantial attic space, linen storage and plant cupboards. Depending on individual needs and with the necessary planning consents and some re-configuration there is scope to develop this part of the property further to create a separate annexe or additional ancillary accommodation with direct and independent access to outside.

To the opposite side of the dining room is the welcoming sitting room; another room of good size which also benefits from characterful beams to the ceiling and staircase, exposed stone walls and a wood burning stove sitting centrally. The fabulous conservatory sits off the sitting room with glazing to all sides, three sets of doors to access the rear courtyard garden, tiled floor and a lantern style clear roof. It is perfectly placed to enjoy uninterrupted views over open countryside.

The staircase leads to the upper floor where two further bedrooms are offered. The principal bedroom has crux beams to the ceiling, benefits from a walk-in wardrobe and a fabulous luxury en-suite bathroom with contemporary features including a freestanding bath, walk-in rainforest shower, a beautiful granite vanity unit with twin wash hand basins and illuminated mirror over, mood lighting to the floor, heated towel rail and WC. The luxury continues to the guest bedroom also offering crux beams to the ceiling and a feature fireplace with a step up to the separate dressing room and onward to the adjacent bathroom with attractive mosaic tiling, Velux windows to the apex and a corner Victory Spa bath.

The Cottages

Located in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB) the properties are used as successful and popular holiday cottages and have been thoughtfully converted, renovated and updated by the current owners to incorporate high standard eco-friendly options. They have attained the Green Tourism Gold Award and Visit England 4 star awards. A host of features have been retained to add character and charm whilst luxury touches including bathrooms and kitchens meet all the criteria for modern day requirements. Located within easy access to main road links the setting is simply idyllic, in a peaceful elevated position with picturesque surroundings. Allendale and other market towns are within easy reach, along with city centres and everything the North Pennines, Hadrian’s Wall country and the Northumberland National Park has to offer. They are ideally placed for a semi-rural business and/or lifestyle opportunity which would appeal to a number of buyers.

Swallows Rest

The larger of the two holiday cottages benefits from an open fully fitted kitchen/sitting and dining room and French doors. There is a good selection of wall and floor units and complementary work surfaces and integral appliances include an electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, induction hob, extractor fan, washer/dryer and under counter fridge and freezer. The sitting and dining areas are clearly defined with two bedrooms off that both benefit from en-suite facilities.

Dove Cottage

Dove Cottage is a quirky one bedroom cottage with the bedroom on the ground floor with an adjacent bathroom. The kitchen, dining and sitting area is located to the upper floor to take advantage of the fabulous uninterrupted views. The property also benefits from a modern fitted kitchen with all the appliances required along with a stone fireplace with original stove and beautifully ornate French Godin wood burner and ample room for a table and chairs.

Both properties benefit from a private sitting area outside with wildflower planting and access to the drying room.


High Broadwood Hall is located on the outskirts of Allendale town and sits in an enviable, elevated and picturesque position with around 115 acres in all. It is approached along a private driveway which leads to a parking area to the front of the property with parking for several vehicles and an electric car charging point. Outbuildings include a large hay barn, two separate open fronted sheds and an integral garage/workshop with power and light all of which could lend themselves to a host of other uses. A hardstanding area with power, water and drainage is also located to the front and would be an ideal opportunity to provide further business potential with a chalet, camping pods, caravan or an equestrian stable block subject to the necessary consents. To the rear of the property is an enclosed courtyard style garden with stone wall boundaries and hard landscaped for ease of maintenance. The original milking parlour is also located at the rear. This could be renovated, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, and offers further opportunities for a business income stream or additional accommodation.

There are two areas of long-established woodland with a mixture of Scots pine, larch and native broadleaf trees covering approximately 3.41 acres. There is also another area of woodland that was planted in 2012 which is predominantly a mix of native broadleaf with a few Scots pines, extending to approximately 3.91 acres. This new woodland was planted to afford cover for ground nesting waders.

The land has been sympathetically managed to provide ample habitat for ground nesting birds like curlew, lapwing and snipe and the current owners have worked with the RSPB to try to ensure the conditions are optimum. The local area is frequented by buzzards, sparrowhawks, owls and many other small bird species, as well as hares and hedgehogs, creating a wonderful location for nature lovers.
