Far Moor End has a unique position, centred within its own grounds offering an incredibly high degree of privacy in the much sought after Lake District National Park (nominated to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site), surrounded by fells and conservation land, it is a truly rare paradise, elevated from and bounded by the River Ehen. Occupying a secluded position on the outskirts of Ennerdale Bridge and approximately one mile from Ennerdale Water with the superb backdrop of Grike Fell, Crag Fell and the High Stile Range. Enjoying direct access to the fells across a neighbouring field. Far Moor End is situated at the end of a long private, gated drive, offering total peace and serenity.

Sold with the benefit of no onward chain and no occupancy restrictions.

The rooms enjoy fabulous views over one of the ponds and surrounding Ennerdale fells.

There is a very large garage block, which would easily house more than 11 vehicles. The grounds also provide generous parking. There is a stableyard and a wide range of outbuildings which could be put to a multitude of uses. The property has an efficient and cost effective heating & hot water system provided by water source heat pumps (utilising the local fell water supply), a biomass boiler and a large air-source heat pump.

Externally there are plenty of exterior lights covering the house and outbuildings, including the inner gate.

The 22 acre estate comprises 15 acres of woodlands with paths through, 2 paddocks of approximately two acres each and a wildflower meadow of approximately 3 acres. There are three wildlife ponds within the grounds. Whilst elevated from the River Ehen, Far Moor End enjoys a long frontage of approximately 600m along the River, which is a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The surrounding grounds attract an abundance of wildlife, including red squirrels, badgers, deer and the occasional otter. The land bordering Far Moor End grounds has largely been set aside for conservation, again adding to the peacefulness of the environment.

This property offers a multitude of possibilities; either as a residence or a business opportunity. In the past 50 years it has been a: working farm, a residence (with self-contained apartment), a highly successful B&B on the Wainwright's Coast to Coast, a residential recording studio and is currently a highly rated furnished self-catering holiday let (accounts can be supplied to interested parties).

The unspoilt, tranquil valley of Ennerdale is an ideal starting point for hundreds of walks - and is on the popular Wainwright's Coast to Coast walk.

The market towns of Whitehaven and Cockermouth are a short distance away and Keswick is only half an hour's drive away. The historic village of St Bees is also close at hand with a long pebble and sand beach and its famous cliffs with thousands of nesting sea birds.

No occupancy restrictions applied to the property.
The grounds would be suitable for a Helipad (subject to planning).
*******Please be aware that GOOGLE MAPS is showing INCORRECT data. The Fox and Hounds Inn which appears to be in the grounds of Far Moor End is located in the centre of the village of Ennerdale Bridge. Also the Scout Camp which appears to border Far Moor End - does not. It is a further half a mile down the road towards Ennerdale Water.*******
