Cherry Holme is situated in the village of Glenridding which lies at the head of Ullswater. The area was regarded by Wainwright as ‘The loveliest square mile in all of Lakeland’.
Ullswater is arguably Lakeland\'s finest, a beautiful serpentine lake surrounded by majestic mountains and dotted with peaceful islands and small sheltered bays, a popular destination all year round with tourists from all over the world.
Glenridding village is a lively tourist destination and boasts a post office, a number of shops, pubs and hotels, a small medical centre and an infant and primary school. Secondary schooling is provided in Penrith around 12 miles away and to where there is a regular bus service.
Cherry Holme is a delightful detached property, superbly located overlooking the lake with views to Place Fell in the heart of the Lake District National Park. There is so much more to this lovely property than its current use as a guest house, being also a superb family home with a magnificent 30 square metre (323 square foot) owners lounge with an adjoining balcony, a separate owners dining room, family kitchen, 5 private owners bedrooms, bathroom and a utility room. The design allows a good deal of privacy and space, a feature seldom found to such a degree in guest houses in the Lake District.
The 7 letting bedrooms are delightfully presented and enjoy stylish and modern en-suite facilities in all instances. The guests can also enjoy the use of the delightful sauna. The guesthouse business has been run in a relaxed manner below the VAT limit and there is great potential for growth in this most desirable of locations. The guest house is prominently placed on the A592 which runs alongside the lakeshore and so also benefits from a good deal of passing trade.
Cherry Holme would equally suit as a simply superb holiday let catering for the under supplied market providing holiday accommodation to extended families, walking groups, businesses etc and could hardly be better placed to take full advantage of all that Lakeland has to offer.
There is space for all in this surprisingly large and welcoming home.
The location is ideal with walks onto the high fells or simply around the lake shore accessible from the door step and trips onto the lake either via the steamer or in rowing boats. Also readily at hand is a sailing school with a dinghy launching facility. In short there is something for everyone.
The property has ample car parking space and is set in easily maintained gardens elevated well above, and well screened from, the road. The gardens enjoy superb views to almost rival those from the main accommodation. This is a superb lifestyle and business opportunity or holiday let in the most beautiful of settings and is not one to be missed.
