Full description

Eriskay Cottage is an intriguing property in so many ways.

Firstly it stands in a secluded and yet accessible location just beyond the attractive hamlet of Bromfield itself located between the A596 Wigton-Aspatria road and the B5302 Wigton-Silloth road. Secondly, for those needing a bit of space, the cottage stands within the site of approximately 0.37 acre (0.15 hector). And then there is the cottage itself - two characterful bedrooms approached by separate staircases, a large through split level reception room and a kitchen with utility area running along the rear of the cottage and bathroom with three piece suite off. It is understood that the origins date back to the 17th century. There are also central heating and double glazing. And finally within the site are an old pre-fab garage, now a useful implement store and a decent timber garden shed.

Aspatria is just 3.5 miles to the west, Wigton approximately 6 miles to the east, both catering well for everyday needs with the usual shops, primary and secondary schools, sports clubs and railway stations. For those needing to commute Carlisle, Cockermouth and west cumbria, even Sellafield beyond, are all within comfortable driving distance as indeed are the Lake District National Park and the Solway Coast, now An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
