Askham has long been regarded as one of the region's loveliest villages. The main street's ample verges and fine trees are flanked by a charming array of picturesque cottages set at differing angles and elevations. It forms an attractive avenue, extending from the River Lowther uphill to open moorland. Nearby is the great Estate of Lowther Park, seat of the Earls of Lonsdale whose ancestral home is currently undergoing major regeneration. The village has a church, inns, shop/post office and is very accessible, being only a few minutes drive from Penrith, the M6 (Jns. 39 & 40) and Ullswater.

Mains electricity, water and drainage. 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 A6 south through Eamont Bridge. At the mini roundabout, turn left signposted Yanwath. Continue over the motorway bridge then turn left just before Yanwath School. Continue along to Askham village, then turn right in the centre of the village. Keld Head Farm is on the right hand side facing the village green
