Location & Description With origins in the 17th Century, this substantial stone-built house was re-modelled in the 19th Century and again in the 1930's. With some open country views, the rural location is peaceful yet accessible only a few minutes drive to the A590 giving road access to the Furness Peninsula and further afield. The A5092 is 'at the top of the lane' leading to the Western Lake District. Coniston Water is only a short journey and all the delights of the Lake District National Park are 'on the doorstep'.
Nearby Greenodd provides convenience shopping with more extensive facilities in Ulverston. The highly regarded Penny Bridge Academy provides primary education with state secondary schools at Coniston or Ulverston and private schooling at Barrow-in-Furness (Chetwynde) or Windermere (Windermere School) both providing buses for transport pick-up from Greenodd.

From the A590 at Greenodd, follow the A5092 for about 3 miles (ignoring the first turning for Coniston-A5084), turning right at the Woodgate cross roads, sign posted for Coniston.Turn first left and first left again, pass through Kendall Ground Farm yard and the short lane to Infield House is directly behind the farm.
