f you're keen on old houses, beautiful gardens and panoramic views, then this could well be for you. A desirable four bedroom house with views that are an absolute treat…. imagine waking up to them or sat in the garden watching the sun set over the far side of the valley, cup of tea/glass of wine in hand! The front of the cottage faces the village green with its historic water pump and so that too has a green and leafy outlook. The gardens are a joy and have been lovingly created over the last few decades by the enthusiastic and talented owner. There are strategic benches to sit and admire your handy work, or indeed the view! Whilst you've got the accessibility of the road, you're really not aware of it once you're garden side as the view is too captivating.
The Lune Valley is situated between the scenic National Parks of the Lakes and Dales; every bit as beautiful, it offers a series of villages framed by undulating hills offering thriving local communities and village life. Kirkby Lonsdale provides state schools, churches, doctor and dentist, a Post Office and banks, shops, pubs and restaurants. There are independent schools at Casterton, Sedbergh and Giggleswick. Grammar Schools at Lancaster. Golf Clubs at Kirkby Lonsdale, Casterton, Lancaster and Kendal. Melling is extremely convenient for commuting with only 8.5 miles to the M6 at junction 34 - this brings many large towns and cities within the range of daily commuting.

Melling itself has a primary school, church, village hall and a vehicle repair garage. Nearby Hornby (2 miles) is a great support centre - it has a doctors' surgery, village shop, post office and tea room, public swimming pool, florist, well-regarded butchers and two pubs. Hornby Castle's grounds are open to the public on key days throughout the year, including the snowdrop weekend in spring.

Travelling from Lancaster up the Lune Valley on the A683, pass through the attractive villages of Caton, Claughton and Hornby. Entering Melling there is a garage on the left hand side of the road. Town End House is the third property on the left. Travelling from Kirkby Lonsdale, drive through Melling and it's almost at the end of the village. The house fronts onto the road, opposite the village green, with a pedestrian gate and access to the garage. When viewing, please park on the road opposite the cottage.
