Situated in the pretty hamlet of Wellington between the villages of Gosforth and the beautiful Wasdale Valley is this charming two bedroom detached bungalow, a perfect retreat for buyers looking for a holiday home or to retire into the Lake District National Park. This delightful property has undergone some significant improvements in recent years, with a garage conversion to provide a second bedroom and utility room and the addition of a conservatory. Offering deceptively spacious accommodation, which in brief comprises entrance hallway, lounge opening into a dining conservatory, kitchen, two well proportioned bedrooms, shower room, utility room and second conservatory. Externally, there is off road parking for several cars to the front as well as an attractively presented shillied garden with raised flower beds, two patio areas and two timber garden sheds.

Offered to the market with the added benefit of no forward chain, Fir Croft presents an exciting opportunity to acquire an affordable property in this beautiful part of Cumbria, with yet further scope to improve and add value. Viewing is essential.

The property enjoys a semi rural position in the hugely popular hamlet of Wellington, just outside the village of Gosforth and within the Lake District National Park. Gosforth itself has a good range of amenities including shops, restaurants, school and services. It is conveniently placed for travel to and from the major local employment centres of the area and also the gateway to the beautiful valleys of Wasdale and Eskdale.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central 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 Whitehaven PFK office, proceed out of the town centre via Inkerman Terrace, turning right at the traffic lights on to the A595. Continue on this road for approx. fourteen miles, dropping down the hill into Gosforth village. Proceed through the village, passing the shop and garage. At the fork in the road, bear left as though heading towards Wasdale. Shortly after arriving into Wellington, Fir Croft is one of the detached bungalows on the left
