Unconverted barn and land for sale in Teesdale

This is a unique opportunity to buy a 10 acre smallholding in an idyllic setting in Teesdale with a multitude of options for a rural lifestyle, including equestrian.

The land

Approximately 10 acres of flat pasture; the southern border is adjacent to a quiet B road.

The buildings

An L shaped byre, stone built in good condition with the benefit of a new tiled roof. This building would be an easy conversion into a two bed dormer bungalow. Plans are available.

There is also a large steel built shed approximately 50' x 25' suitable for multiple uses.


Electricity and water are available at the B roadside.


An application for change of use to residential was made to the local authority under permitted development rules but was declined. Due to administration error on the part of my planning consultants the deadline for an appeal was missed.

I am convinced that if a new owner applied again permission would be granted even if it needed to go to appeal. The reason for this confidence is that the property complies with the rules regarding permitted development.

I would like to have done the work myself but age and ill health have caught up with me.


The property is 4 miles from Bishop Auckland and 12 miles from Darlington and Barnard Castle.


£95,000 with £145,000 pounds clawback when planning permission is granted.
