Location: Field End Farmhouse is situated on the very outskirts of the hamlet of Stainton on the fringe of South Lakeland.

The gated entrance to the house is found on your left hand side with private drive and paddocks on either side leading onto a large car park in front of the stable block.  

Description: Dating from 1678, Field End Farm has seen external improvements by the vendors who with care have blended 21st century living with period charm and character. The house enjoys a southerly aspect over open countryside and the four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor balance well with the two living rooms and dining kitchen on the ground floor. Outside you will find a stable block with adjoining workshop and everything for the equestrian enthusiast with a winter hard standing and a 117' fenced ménage.
