The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife and there is easy access to the region's areas of natural and historic interest.

The regional capital Carlisle, is just 8.5 miles and the M6 motorway at junction 43 is approximately 6.5 miles. 

Carlisle, the regions 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 surrounding countryside is most attractive with beautiful woodland and riverside walks on the doorstep. In particular, a short walk to the pretty hidden settlement of Greenwell is a delight.

The property is complemented by its setting and has a good sized rear garden which is private and sheltered. Of interest is the detached coach house which has a garage and workshop and on the first floor a one bedroomed apartment. The apartment requires some further upgrading but would make a superb annex, guest suite or rental property.
