Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine Edwardian country Guest House enjoying a superb Lakeland setting at the foot of Bassenthwaite Lake. In addition to the guest house is a most appealing, two-bedroomed detached lodge (currently let on a self-catering basis) and separate two-bedroomed owners' accommodation.

The vendor has advised that the property has not been affected by the recent flooding.

With the Lake District National Park being the country's foremost tourist destination, Lakeside is superbly placed close to the A66 trunk route to take full advantage of this. The possible future designation of the United Nations World Heritage Site can only enhance this.

Lakeside is a handsome Edwardian house, beautifully positioned at the lower end of Bassenthwaite. The property enjoys a southerly prospect looking up the lake which is bordered by the majestic Lakeland mountains. The house was initially constructed in 1904, a date which unsurprisingly coincided with the completion of the Keswick to Cockermouth railway as this was the managers residence. Today it is now an impressive Edwardian Country Guest House offering eight-bedroomed accommodation yet still retaining a number of original features. The current owners have sensitively upgraded the property, being careful to retain the Edwardian atmosphere, yet provide the modern facilities today's guests anticipate.

In addition to the guest house is a most appealing detached lodge of modern construction and providing interesting two-bedroomed accommodation. Let on a self-catering basis, there is exceptional demand for this and it is let for much of the year. The separate owners' accommodation is to the rear and forms part of the more recent extension. Two bedrooms are provided.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire an attractive lifestyle business, beautifully located and well rewarded.

The property is situated approx. 8 miles from Keswick, 7 miles from Cockermouth and 22 miles from Penrith. The M6 (junction 40) and A6 trunk road are easily accessible and there is also a main line railway station in Penrith providing access to London in less than four hours.

Mains electricity, water & drainage; double glazing throughout (many windows have been refurbished and replaced with Ventrolla windows and glass has been replaced with special heat retaining glass); oil-fired central heating - boiler recently replaced; LPG gas, telephone and broadband connections subject to BT regulations.Please note: The mention of any appliances and/or services within these sales particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

Highly accessible just off the A66 trunk road between Keswick (8 Miles) and Cockermouth (7 miles). Travelling from Keswick, shortly after the end of the dual-carriageway with the Pheasant Inn on the left, turn right for Dubwath, then take the Lake Road B5291 immediately to right. The property is the second house on the left
