An enchanting 17th century farmhouse and guest cottage in the delightful Eden Valley


Caber Farm is beautifully situated about 2 miles from the small fellside hamlet of Croglin with a pub and village hall and about 3.5 miles from the larger village of Kirkoswald with a primary school, doctor's surgery, shop, village hall, church and two excellent pubs.
Lying to the east of the M6 the Eden Valley has many traditional amenities, attractive villages but above all it is a tranquil and unique setting easily accessible to the Lake District National Park to the West and the Pennines to the East.
The M6, A66 and A69 are all within a 30 minute drive providing links to major cities and railways. Penrith Station (about 15 miles) is on the West Coast line with journey times to London of only about three hours. The scenic and useful Settle Carlisle railway stops 5 miles away at both Armathwaite and Lazonby.
Caber Farm is a beautiful period farmhouse dating from 17th century and is built of local stone with slate roof. The five bay front elevation has a handsome doorway with arched pediment and faces west overlooking the garden and 10 acre wild flower meadow with views to the fells beyond.
It has a charming, cobbled courtyard with the original farm buildings and cart sheds which includes a first floor guest cottage.
Caber is the former home of the grandparents of celebrated Irish Botanist, Caleb Threlkeld, and their initials T-E-T 1669 are inscribed on a date stone above the front door. The current owners have restored the property with great care and have sensitively retained all the original features in the property.
They have restored all the stone walls, planted over a thousand indigenous trees and mixed hedging plants, taken care to encourage wildlife and manage the farm with higher level stewardship status.
It is therefore a rare opportunity to acquire a lovely house and small farm in a truly delightful and private setting offering a lifestyle which is increasingly hard to find.
