Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Situation and description Douglas House is an imposing property which benefits from a prominent position within the centre of Gilsland which itself, sits in the middle of beautiful rolling countryside on the course of Hadrian's Wall. The village benefits from two public houses and a junior school and lies some eight miles to the east of the market town of Brampton which provides a full range of amenities. Newcastle and its international airport are accessed via the nearby A.69 in as little as forty-five minutes by car. 

Carlisle, approximately eighteen miles to the west, provides a complete range of services including access to the M6 motorway and the west coast main line for direct trains to London in as little as three hours twenty minutes, and Glasgow in an hour and fifteen minutes. The size and location of Douglas House would make it an attractive proposition as a large holiday let or small bed and breakfast, due to the large number of walkers, cyclists and tourists who pass through Gilsland on the Hadrian's Wall trail.
