A truly stunning 19th century residence occupying an idyllic position within the beautiful Wasdale valley between the villages of Gosforth and Santon Bridge, amid some of Lakeland's finest scenery. Once a former Weslyan Chapel, the property is of traditional construction and provides two bedroomed accommodation perfectly suited to the second home market or for retirement. In brief comprising entrance hallway, spacious lounge/diner, dining kitchen, two double bedrooms, bathroom, cloakroom and rear porch.

A particular highlight of the property is its extensive gardens which extend to the front, side and rear, in addition to a parking area for up to three cars and detached garage.
Opportunities of this nature within the Lake District National Park are extremely rare, with this one offering yet further potential. An early inspection is therefore encouraged.

The property is located in a tranquil, sought-after location within the National Park valley of Wasdale, home to England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, and deepest lake, Wastwater. Nearby Gosforth has shops, an excellent nursery and primary school with more comprehensive amenities available in Seascale including rail links to Carlisle and Lancaster. The interesting town of Whitehaven is some 15 miles' distant with Cockermouth, the birthplace of Wordsworth, a little further afield.

Mains electricity and water. Septic tank drainage. Electric heating and double glazing installed. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

From the Whitehaven office proceed out of the town centre, via Inkerman Terrace, turning right at the traffic lights on to the A595 and follow this road down into Gosforth village. Proceed through the village centre, bearing right at the fork in the road on to Whitecroft and out of the village. Continue along this road for approximately three miles into Santon where you will arrive at a triangular shaped green, go straight on here. Do not turn right down the lane if following a sat nav, Bitt Cottage is the first property on the left set back from the road
