Banksgate Farm, North Stainmore, Kirkby Stephen


Banksgate Farm is a 58 acre hill livestock farm with five bedroom farmhouse located at North Stainmore in the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The farm is synonymous with the current owners’ success in breeding a Championship winning herd of Fell Ponies.  The farm is on an elevated site with incredible far reaching panoramic views of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

The 58 acres of land, divided into seven fields enclosed by traditional stone walls, is made up of 22.68 acres of allotment, 12 acres of meadow land and 22.23 acres of pasture (some of which is also mowable).   The position and accessibility of the farm is second to none yet at the same time it retains a remote and secluded nature which is so much part of a traditional hill farm.

The south facing detached farmhouse is built of sandstone under a new Burlington slate roof and sits within a further acre of amenity land.  It has been extended and sympathetically modernised in recent years. The spacious, light filled accommodation includes a traditional farmhouse kitchen, two reception rooms and five bedrooms.  

The house has south facing garden areas to the front and to the side and rear a farmyard and large stone faced traditional farm building measuring 30.4m by 11.4m under a sound recently replaced cement fibre roof providing ample storage and livestock housing. 
 
To the rear of this building is a timber framed corrugated iron roof and cladding lean-to measuring 27.4m by 9.3m.  There are a further two outlying buildings which serve the property.   

Banksgate Farm is well placed just off the A66 offering easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, Scotch Corner and the M6.

The farm is sold together with Basic Payment Scheme (“BPS”) entitlements as follows: 

13.83 Severely Disadvantaged Area
9.04 Moorland.  

The Sellers have submitted a claim under the BPS in 2018 and will retain the entirety of the 2018 BPS Payment.  The transfer of the BPS entitlements will be made upon completion in accordance with the regulations of the Scheme.  

The farm is in an idyllic fellside location close to North Stainmore with the beautiful North Pennine fells on the doorstep.  The town of Brough is just a couple of miles away with shops, pubs and primary school.  Kirkby Stephen and Appleby are both within easy reach, with further amenities, secondary schools and Carlisle-Settle railway stations.  The Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Park are just a short drive away and the A66 offers easy access to  Scotch Corner and the M6 motorway.
