Laverock Hall, a smallholding which was transformed into a dog-friendly tourism venture near Eggleston, County Durham, has been put up for sale for £1.2m
The business, previously named the ‘Best Place to Holiday’ by the Kennel Club, has two dog-friendly holiday lets and an indoor arena used for dog agility and training, alongside the main farmhouse and almost 50 acres of land.
Carter Jonas associate partner, Sam Johnson, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone hoping to purchase an established, successful rural business. Laverock Hall is award-winning for a reason; dog owners return to the site again and again for its unrivalled facilities. The two holiday lets are located in converted barns and each has its own dog grooming/shower room. In addition to the indoor 120ft arena there is also a secure exercise paddock with six-foot fencing on site and a five acre ‘dog play’ fenced paddock.”
The land comprises of 18 acres of meadow and 28 acres of pasture, with a fine loamy over clayey soil suited to stock rearing and some dairying. The farmhouse is a three-storey, four-bedroom semi-detached dwelling, and the site also boasts a number of both modern and traditional buildings including a former garage which has been converted into two stables and five separate dog kennels.
Located within the North Pennines AONB, Laverock Hall can be found approximately seven miles north west from the historic market town Barnard Castle. Interested parties can contact Carter Jonas’ Harrogate office on 01423 205411.
