Penrith and the regional city of Carlisle provide a broad range of educational, retailing and leisure facilities with the whole of the Lake District being on the doorstep. For the commuter the West Coast mainline railway with direct links to London Euston and international airports at Newcastle, Glasgow and Liverpool/Manchester provide excellent communications throughout the country. The location is ideal for exploring Cumbria and the Eden Valley, but also the North Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Northumberland National Park and the Scottish Borders.

Ennim was acquired by the current owner in 2000 and was the former home of First Viscount Whitelaw. It has been sensitively remodelled to provide exceptional family accommodation with five reception rooms, seven bedrooms and five bathrooms. The grounds are a truly stunning feature of the property with some magnificent specimen trees, woodland walks and a former tennis court. In all, the grounds extend to about 8.71 acres and there is a fine stable block with garaging, kennels and a two bedroomed gate lodge.

Square Footage: 8,197 sq ft
Acreage: 8.71 Acres


Coming from the M6, head north towards Cumbria. At junction 40, take the A66 exit to Penrith/Workington/Brough. Continue onto the A66 and follow the road for about nine miles. At Skirsgill Interchange, take the first exit onto A66 and after about a mile, at the roundabout, take the third edit and stay on the A66. After about a mile, turn right onto Newbiggin and continue straight. Turn left after half a mile and then turn left again onto Park View. Turn left again and the property will be on the left.
