Discover a Stunning Equestrian Property: Near Lanchester, County Durham

Calling all equestrians and country enthusiasts! This magnificent 4-bedroom stone-built home on a plot of 17.5 acres was lovingly built in part converting a historic pump house that was once a vital resource to the local community. Tucked away in a secluded and picturesque setting near Lanchester, this exquisite property offers a rare sense of tranquil privacy and an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life.

As you enter the property, you’re greeted by a reception room to your right and a spacious family room adorned with a cosy fireplace to your left. Continuing through the family room, you’ll find a generous and modern kitchen and open-plan dining area, filled with natural light pouring in through the windows and French doors, which lead to the rear of the property. At the heart of the kitchen is a beautiful kitchen island unit equipped with an electric hob, offering extra workspace and storage and making this space ideal for those who love to cook and host dinners in comfort. Completing the ground floor is a toilet and a handy utility room with additional outdoor access.

Make your way upstairs to discover four bedrooms, two of which boast ensuite bathrooms, and a well-appointed family bathroom. There is abundant space for family and guests or to utilise one of the rooms as an office, dressing room or private study.

Approaching Stockerley Bridge Farm, your journey begins through a large set of gates that provide access to a private driveway leading to an expansive reception area with a double garage and a cart lodge, offering ample parking for various vehicles. Adjacent to the main residence stands a charming summer house, perfect for hosting barbecues. Furthermore, this space holds exciting potential for a holiday rental. Surrounded by lush landscapes and mature woodland, this property is a rural retreat at its finest and is the perfect canvas for any creative vision you might have for al fresco leisure and entertainment.

*** As a particular benefit, the associated two-storey, stone-built garaging does have planning consent for residential conversion, with a lot of the fundamentals having already been developed, allowing for a seamless conversion.

Those with equestrian and country interests, you’re in for a treat. Spanning approximately 17.5 acres, the total plot offers endless opportunities for both business and pleasure and caters to all your equestrian and farm needs. The expansive private grounds boast a large hay & tractor barn, a large modern agricultural building fully surfaced with fibre and sand, an additional former agricultural building currently housing internal stalls, manège, a generous workshop, kennels, a natural stream containing wild fish, and an abundance of wildlife – it truly is the gift that keeps on giving. What’s more, there is plenty of space for your horses to roam freely and securely as well as independent field access points, which are ideal for loading/unloading. 

For business-minded individuals, this property is a true gem. With the property having been used for agricultural purposes previously, early indications suggest that there may be exciting development and investment opportunities afoot (residential, business, leisure, dogs, and more). Any equestrian venture idea you may have – from grooming, tack and livery services, to riding lessons – you can certainly do it here.

Those who compete or enjoy equestrian events will appreciate the proximity of this property to a plethora of great venues and facilities, all within a 15-minute radius:

Holmside Hall  (6.0 miles via A691 and Holmside Ln) offers livery services and coaching and holds a range of events, including British Showjumping and unaffiliated shows.

West Park Arena (8.9 miles via B6296 and A68) holds a variety of competitions, including British Dressage, British Showjumping, Indoor British Eventing training competitions, as well as unaffiliated shows.

For more equine entertainment, don’t hesitate to visit annual county shows in the surrounding areas, such as the Durham County Show, Wolsingham Show and Stanhope Show.

But the adventures don’t end there! If you’re looking to ride out, the nearest bridleway is the Lanchester Valley Railway Path, commencing at Lydgetts Junction. As the property is conveniently situated on the edge of the North Pennines AONB, there are miles of bridleways and trails to explore, including:

Blanchland Packhorse Trail: Commencing in Baybridge, this 13-mile circular route is 70% off-road.
Hamsterley Packhorse Trail: Starting near Grove car park, this is a scenic trail through the forest and over the open moor.
Derwent Reservoir: Commencing near Pow Hill Country Park, this multi-user path extends to the dam and to Millshield Picnic Area.

The property enjoys a secluded location within the picturesque Lanchester Valley, yet with proximity to Durham (20 minutes), Newcastle (35 minutes), Sunderland (40 minutes) and easy access to the A1 and A68. 

Plenty of amenities, including supermarkets, pharmacies, pubs, and restaurants in the vibrant town of Consett, are reachable within just a few minutes. For a dose of entertainment, Empire Consett presents live theatre shows and screens the latest blockbusters.

And let’s not forget – the surrounding countryside is spectacular. The Coast to Coast (C2C or Sea to Sea) cycle route passes through Consett and is known as the UK’s most popular long-distance cycle route. The award-winning Knitsley Farm Shop is only 1.5 miles away, selling fresh and local produce with a butcher, deli, bakery and cafe. For a fun family day out, Hall Hill Farm is worth a visit.
