Situation and description Crossroads House benefits from a prime position less than a mile from J.42 of the M6 motorway to the south of Carlisle and on the northern edge of the Lake District National Park. Ullswater is less than 30 minutes to the south by car. The location proves a popular stopping off point for tourists making a trip from one end of the country to the other, or those looking to use it as a base for a holiday in the region. The property also benefits from good repeat business from both national and international visitors. As well as being convenient for the motorway, the property is just a short distance from Carlisle city centre. 

Carlisle, the region's capital, has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. There is an attractive central pedestrianised area and an impressive cathedral and castle. The city benefits from being on the West Coast Mainline which provides fast and frequent services to London from 3 hours 23 minutes and non-stop to Glasgow. The city's central railway station serves many other destinations including the Lake District, West Cumbria, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Manchester Airport and Birmingham. 

The property itself provides five letting bedrooms which generated a turnover in excess of £50,000 for the last 12 months. It is also currently the No. 2 Rated Guest House in Carlisle (source: Trip Advisor). The property is 4 Star Silver Rated, with its own website which has the facility to take bookings. The owners also subscribe to the popular website which generates the majority of their leads. Of particular interest is the large Roman well in the entrance hall which was incorporated into the property when it was extended in the late 1800's. The well itself is over 100 ft deep and proves a popular attraction for visiting guests and serves as a unique and interesting feature to use in the marketing of the letting rooms.
