Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Uldale Mill was formerly the mill owners house, with the now converted mill buildings being nearby and harnessing the River Ellen to mill corn from the surrounding area. It is a very peaceful and picturesque setting with the river on one side and the lovely old parish church of St James' on the other.

The property is traditionally built and probably dates from the early part of the 19th Century when the mill flourished, later it was used as a farmhouse. It has a handsome early Victorian appearance, constructed in local materials. There is a small annex on the southern gable which could perhaps be used independently if required.

The house is well appointed with attractive kitchen incorporating a four door electric Aga. The front reception rooms are light and spacious with open outlooks. There are three bedrooms, one being en suite. Outside are attractive gardens, bordered by the River Ellen.

This is a delightful property, well presented and in a wonderful part of Lakeland. An early inspection is advised.

Approximately two miles from Ireby and five from the larger village of Caldbeck. Within 35 minutes drive of the M6 and Penrith, twelve miles from both market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth.Uldale is a remarkable Lakeland community, approached by quiet country lanes, it occupies an elevated position on the side of Green How overlooking the Ellen Valley. Beautifully placed in the foothills of the Northern Lake District, it is surrounded by familiar sounding fells such as Binsey, Great Scafell, Little and Great Cockup, Low Thwaite Fell, all collectively know as the Uldale Fells, and providing unsurpassed rambling. The most northerly of the lakes, Over Water, is close by. Perhaps more a tarn, it is none the less very beautiful and source of the River Ellen.Uldale has a place in literature as the home of Judith Paris, a heroine in the 'Herries Chronicles', a saga written by Sir Hugh Walpole. The famous huntsmen John Peel also lived here, having married a local girl and the area still has his pack of hounds, the Melbreak.Today this quiet rural community has a village pub, The Snooty Fox, and a tearoom with gallery created from the former village school. The enchanting white washed church of St James' originally dates from the 12th Century and is a little way out of the village, actually sharing a boundary with this property, Uldale Mill. In all this is a remarkable area with fascinating history, set in some of the country's finest landscapes.
