Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Lowther Valley is one of the Lakeland's undiscovered treasures. Leading from the picturesque village of Askham, seat of the Lowther family, the valley leads up to the high mountain ranges around Haweswater. The scenery is magnificent, ranging from the pastoral valley to rugged fell land. Dotted along the route are pretty little rural communities, of which Bampton is one.

The barn was traditionally constructed and is a surprisingly large structure, dating from the late 19th Century. It was then converted by the previous owners in the mid-1990's. The work has been undertaken to an exceptional standard and has introduced many attractive features including a beautifully positioned balcony off the living room, which overlooks the Howes Beck and wood beyond.

The property offers spacious accommodation and it would be quite feasible to utilise the lower ground floor as separate holiday accommodation, subject to planning consent. The additional income from this could supplement the revenues from the popular holiday cottage, which was also converted from a single storey former farm building.

Howes Beck Barn is a most unusual property, offering superb accommodation with income-generating potential, all within a delightful Lakeland setting.

An early inspection is recommended.

Please Note: Consideration will be taken to the separate sale of the main house from the holiday cottage. Please enquire for details.

Directions
From the centre of Penrith head south via King Street. At the Kemplay roundabout follow the A6 down into Eamont Bridge and after crossing the river take the next right turn. After a mile, just after Yanwath, take the left hand fork in the road signposted Askham. Continue through Askham and Helton. Bampton is the next village. Immediately after entering the village take the sharp right hand bend over the cattle grid (just before the phone box) and up on to Bampton common. The single track road climbs steeply between impressive granite rocks before levelling out after 300 metres. In front of you is a white farm house. Opposite on the left hand side is Howes Beck Cottage and Barn
