This is an attractive and traditional Cumbrian village with period houses and cottages grouped around wide undulating central �greens�. On hand are shop, public house and new village hall. Langwathby (just four miles away) provides a primary school, shop/post office, church and railway station on the scenic Carlisle to Settle Line. Penrith also caters well for everyday needs with main line railway station, secondary schools, excellent sports facilities and access to the M6 at Junction 40.

Telephone and superfast broadband connections installed subject to 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 Penrith take the A686 for Alston. Proceed past the turning for Edenhall, over the iron bridge and follow the main road through Langwathby for a further four miles until reaching Melmerby. Follow the road through the centre of the greens and as it bears round to the left Gate House can be seen on the right hand side of the road just before the final right hand bend out of the village.
