Clove Lodge, Baldersdale

Clove Lodge is a superb Grade II Listed detached house in a spectacular rural location at the head of

Baldersdale in Teesdale.

It is remote yet accessible being the last house on a well maintained council lane, 5 miles from

Cotherstone and 8 miles from the larger market town of Barnard Castle with its shops, restaurants &

pubs as well as schools. It is at the mid way point of the Pennine Way, popular with walkers & holiday

makers. The nearby reservoirs offer wonderful bird watching opportunities and total tranquillity.

The views are spectacular with open moorland to the east and reservoirs to the west. The whole area is

part of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The property is a range of dwellings offering diverse opportunities to create a thriving business. The

current owners have sympathetically restored the property and run a B&B, holiday cottage & bunk

barn in the main tourist season on a part time basis. These businesses could all be developed to provide

a healthy income and attractive lifestyle.

The main house dates from the early 1800’s and offers light and spacious accommodation, in beautiful

decorative order and retaining the character one would expect of the period. On the ground floor is a

bespoke 30ft kitchen with Aga & integrated appliances and a separate dining room area. Leading off

the kitchen and also accessed from the yard is a useful boot & utility room. There is a lovely sitting

room with open fire, an attractive entrance hall & porch and a downstairs bathroom. On the back of

the main house is a listed medieval hall which has been renovated to provide a fully shelved library, a

study and a superb vaulted drawing room on the first floor with beautiful views over the meadows to

the reservoir. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and two en-suite shower rooms. All the

bedrooms face South and offer spacious, light rooms.

There is an attached cottage, probably added in the Victorian period, which is currently provides

holiday accommodation but could easily be integrated back into the main house. It has a good sized

lounge with open fire, a little dining room, pretty kitchen diner with French doors to the patio as well

as two double bedrooms, a bathroom and en suite shower room. This could be used as a self contained

cottage bringing in some income or would make a fantastic granny annexe.

Across the courtyard is a stone built camping barn offering basic open plan living. There is a modern

kitchenette, shower room and living room with wood burning stove. Upstairs there are two twin

bedrooms and a double sleeping platform.

Outside, there are attractive gardens all around the house. In the courtyard to the side of the house are

a range of stone built outbuildings with a byre, workshop and stable. These have planning permission

for conversion to accommodation.

In the rear yard is a large modern farm building, a large garage with development potential and a

stable building further down the track.

There is the opportunity to purchase 16.5 acres of good meadow land by separate negotiation. There is

a possibility for equestrian use subject to relevant planning permission.

Clove Lodge is perfect for those looking for a rural family home with business potential or early

retirees looking for a total lifestyle change.

Viewing essential to appreciate the location, quality and opportunities offered by this property.
