Brantwood, Newbiggin On Lune, Kirkby Stephen


Brantwood is located on the outskirts of the Cumbrian village of Newbiggin-on-Lune in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Howgill Fells, Great Asby Scar and Smardale Viaduct are all close by, with the Lake District a short drive away. The nearby picturesque village of Ravenstonedale has award winning pubs, village store and nursery, with further amenities and schools in Kirkby Stephen. Newbiggin-on-lune has excellent transport links, with the M6 and A66 within easy reach and Settle-Carlisle railway station in Kirkby Stephen.

The property was originally the Ravenstonedale railway station, which closed in the 1960s. Much of the station’s charm and features still remain, with superb feature windows and high ceilings in most rooms. The former waiting room has an original fireplace, pew seating and glazed front wall with doors out onto the platform and magnificent views of the Howgill Fells. This space would make an exceptional sunroom or would be an ideal space for a tearoom, subject to planning consents. From the waiting room a beautiful arched doorway leads into the original women’s waiting room and a garage/workshop.

The main house is of good proportions with character features and superb views to the front, it would benefit from some modernisation but has the potential to be a wonderful family home. To the ground floor is a dining kitchen with Stanley range cooker, two reception rooms with open fireplaces, a utility room and a charming sunroom with door to garden. Off the first floor landing are three bedrooms and a bathroom with shower over bath.

Brantwood sits on a magnificent private plot around one acre in size, overlooking the Howgills Fells. A previous owner recreated the Victorian station house gardens, which are divided into a number of areas, with beautiful cottage style flower borders, lawns, box hedging and greenhouse. The original platform still remains, which is ideal for a large south facing seating and dining terrace, overlooking the Howgill Fells. There are a number of stone stores and a gated driveway leads down onto the platform.
