Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A traditional five bedroomed farmhouse set in approximately 13 acres with a substantial detached barn offering considerable residential ad commercial possibilities such as a bed and breakfast (STPP).

This fantastic property benefits from a semi-rural position just outside the village of Holmrook within the Lake District National Park and enjoys breathtaking views across to the Eskdale Valley and Ravenglass Estuary.

The farmhouse itself has been much improved in recent years by the present owner to create a comfortable family home which in brief comprises entrance hallway, two reception rooms, formal dining room, sun room, dining kitchen, utility room, shower room and boot room to the ground floor. There are four bedrooms located on the first floor, two of which are en-suite with the master also having an impressive Juliet balcony. There is a fifth en-suite bedroom located in the eaves on the second floor, ideal for use as guest accommodation.

Adjacent to the farmhouse and included in the sale is a substantial stone built barn which has had previous planning permission for conversion into four holiday letting cottages. It is also suitable for a wide range of commercial uses (STPP). Interested parties should be aware that this planning permission has now lapsed and are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority. There is also a range of other agricultural outbuildings in addition to formal gardens and land totalling 13 acres (approx.).

Opportunities of this nature within the national park are rare, with this one offering considerable potential to improve and add value. Viewing is strongly encouraged.

The property enjoys an idyllic and picturesque location approximately one mile from Holmrook, a linear village lying within the Lake District National Park.

Holmrook itself offers some local amenities and excellent transport links via the A595 and the Cumbrian coast rail line at the neighbouring village of Drigg, providing easy commute to the area's local major employment centres. Thornflatt Farm provides a perfect base from which to sample the Lake District National Park and many of the attractions across Cumbria's west coast from the Wasdale Valley to the sandy beaches at Seascale. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and the La'al Ratty at Ravenglass, a miniature steam railway and undoubtedly one of the most scenic railway journeys in Britain.
