Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location From Ambleside proceed towards Coniston on the A593 turning right immediately before the Skelwith Bridge Hotel (do not take the turning for Chapel Stile but turn immediately right before that, up the rising country lane). Continue up the lane for a short distance and Neaum Crag is then found on the left hand side.

On entering this popular development, continue along the main access driveway, passing the leisure complex on the left hand side and continue bearing right up the hill. When you come to the T junction (with Blackbeck Tarn opposite), turn left and continue up the hill. Take the third driveway on the right and Flat Tarn is the third cabin on your left. There is a large car parking space to the front of the lodge. 

Description Located just a short distance from Loughrigg Tarn and just a short stroll from the delightful facilities at Skelwith Bridge which, quite aside from the beautiful waterfalls, includes a hotel, pub and the ever-popular Chester's shop and café. There is immediate access from the site onto the surrounding fells and Neaum Crag remains a highly popular and peaceful location since its conception in the 1980s. The site extends in total to something in the region of 18 acres and includes a very unobtrusive onsite leisure facility which incorporates not only a swimming pool but also a sauna, games area and laundry. The site attracts a spectacular array of wildlife including red squirrels, deer and a wonderful variety of birds.

Well-loved by only two owners since new, Flat Tarn has been tastefully improved and upgraded by the present owners in recent times and offers bright and spacious accommodation which is south-facing and which benefits from quite a large number of windows on all sides. The chalet was re-roofed in approximately 2005 and provides an idyllic and peace-filled weekend retreat or a superbly placed holiday let in a unique setting.

The chalets can be occupied between the 1st of March and the 15th of November. A number of the lodges onsite have obtained planning permission to extend this across the year and in all likelihood, similar permission would be granted in our opinion. The property can be occupied over the Christmas and New Year period but can not be utilised as a permanent residence.

Ideal Holiday Letting Opportunity Lakelovers has successfully holiday-let many detached log cabins in this superb development in such an idyllic setting. Despite having a high demand from their customers they presently do not have a property here to meet this demand and therefore suggest this property would achieve between 30-35 bookings inside year one of operation with a gross return in the region of £14,000. To discuss this property and their services further please contact Paul Liddell on 015395 88855.
