Description: A well appointed, well presented, well loved home, 'Woodlands' is a charming Barn Conversion, one of three dwellings being part of the former farm buildings for the ancient Thorphinsty Hall. Beautifully located in the idyllic Winster Valley, to the south of the Cartmel Fell area this location is truly delightful with an abundance of natural habitat and open fields across the valley to Witherslack and the wooded slopes of Whitbarrow. Despite the rural setting the property is only about 5 minutes drive from the A590 ideally placed for commuting to Grange, (Grange Station only around 6 miles) Kendal and Ulverston, with good road communications to the M6 and beyond and only a short drive from the many attractions, sights and walks that the Lake District has to offer.
The property was converted in 2000 by local builders 'Ducketts of Kendal' to a high standard with a traditional stone finish under a roof covering of Lakeland Slate. With a wealth of exposed beams the versatile interior accommodation provides superb living space and briefly comprises; Lounge, Kitchen Diner, 3 Double Bedrooms (1En-Suite), Study/Snug and Family Bathroom whilst outside there are planted seating areas providing breath taking views to open countryside, Garage and ample Parking. This property will be suitable either for a family or simply those seeking a comfortable home in what is undoubtedly one of the loveliest areas within the district (and beyond!). A superb opportunity to purchase an excellent Country Home in an idyllic rural setting for use as a permanent dwelling or second home. 

Location: Situated on the Western side of the picturesque Winster Valley, this little hamlet is surrounded by woodland, open fields, rolling hills and views to Whitbarrow. To reach the property, proceed from Grange in the direction of Lindale. At the mini roundabout go straight ahead into Back O' The Fell Road by the Lindale Inn and follow the road for 2.1 miles to the crossroads. Go straight ahead and follow the road for 1.9 miles, bear left and immediately right into a gravelled driveway. Proceed around to the left and 'Woodlands' is the second property on the left. An alternative route would be to follow the A590 to High Newton taking the Cartmel Fell road adjacent to the Crown Inn. Ignoring the first right turning, signposted to Lindale, drive for about 2.5 miles and enjoy one of the finest views in the district over the valley. Passing 'Barrow Wife' on the left and 'Hollin Foot' on the right, travel downhill and take the first sharp right turn, where there is a finger post for High Newton. (Blink and you'll miss it!)
