The landscaping incorporates some of the finest local sandstone in wonderfully creative ways. In addition to the gorgeous gardens forming part of the Marlen Croft boundary, the owners currently rent a small patch of lawn from the local farm for £10 per annum on which they have erected a useful shed and log store. Beyond the rear gardens are open farming fields giving the whole property and very rural and idyllic feel.

Location 
Rottington is a picturesque little hamlet with a scattering of properties set in the heart of this rural farming community right between the villages of Sandwith and St Bees. St Bees benefits from a post office/local shop, a number of popular public houses and restaurants, a train station with regular services running north and south and sought after schools. Sandwith is a small village on the Coast to Coast walking route with a popular village pub and successful community groups. Rottington is also a short drive from Whitehaven town centre where more abundant amenities can be found. It is an ideal setting for those looking for a semi-rural location without having to compromise too much on proximity to local amenities. In recent years, Sandwith and Rottington have become popular areas to bring up a family.
