Tenure: Freehold

Clifton is a popular village, conveniently located 3 miles to the south of Penrith. The White House is pleasantly situated within the village in half an acre of land, having a southerly aspect overlooking open fields. These fields were, in fact, the scene of the last battle on English soil - The Battle of Clifton Moor in 1745 - when the leading troops of Cumberland's army skirmished with the rearguard remnants of Bonnie Prince Charlie's army. Although the house was not as we see it today there was a property on the site at the time. The current dwelling was built in 1765 by a yeoman farmer, William Hogarth, whose family had a good deal of influence in local life.
