Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A unique Grade II listed Georgian property which blends character features with contemporary internal design nestled within the Lake District National Park close to Eskdale and the breathtaking Wasdale valley. This substantial property which is the former coach-house to Carleton Hall has been lovingly restored by the present owners to retain many of its period features. The sizeable and versatile living accommodation includes five bedrooms and a ground floor layout which provides either four reception rooms or self contained one bedroomed accommodation with some minor alterations. Externally, there is an extensive lawned garden, an area of woodland and off road parking for multiple vehicles. Description alone cannot do this delightful property justice. Internal inspection is essential in order to appreciate the charm and flexible accommodation.


Location
The property enjoys an idyllic and picturesque location approximately one mile from Holmrook, a linear village lying within the Lake District National Park. Holmrook itself offers some local amenities and excellent transport links via the A595 and the Cumbrian coast rail line at the neighbouring village of Drigg, providing easy commute to the area's local major employment centres. Coachman's Cottage provides a perfect base from which to sample the Lake District National Park and many of the attractions across Cumbria's west coast from the Wasdale Valley to the sandy beaches at Seascale. Nearby attractions include Muncaster Castle and the La'al Ratty at Ravenglass, a miniature steam railway and undoubtedly one of the most scenic railway journeys in Britain.

Services
Mains gas, electricity and water. Shared septic tank drainage. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these sale particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.

Directions
From the Whitehaven PFK office, proceed out of the town centre via Inkerman Terrace turning right on to the A595 and head towards Gosforth. Continue along the A595 passing the turn off for Gosforth and Seascale on the right and carry on along the road until Holmrook. From Holmrook, proceed south for approximately 1 mile to the left hand bend in the road with Carleton Hall on the left. Pass the turning signposted Saltcoats on the right, and the entrance to Coachman's Cottage will be found shortly after on the left hand side of the road
