Rare to the market and lovingly renovated by the current owners to exacting standards Barrowgarth Guest House must be viewed to be fully appreciated. This immaculate period property is most conveniently located within the historic market town of Appleby and has been well thought out, with the commercial element to the front of the property and owners' accommodation to the rear.

Formerly a residential property, Barrowgarth sits over three storeys and is run as a very successful guest house, benefitting from excellent fixtures and fittings throughout whilst boasting generous rooms in both the guest areas and owners' accommodation.

With four spacious bedrooms, all stylishly decorated with modern en suites set over two floors, the welcoming guest accommodation boasts a dining room with Victorian Conservatory attached, guest lounge with licenced bar, both enjoying character throughout and an outside patio area for guests to relax.

Each letting room can be utilised as a double or twin room and benefits from a useful vanity area with mirror, lighting and mini fridge.

The rest of the property could continue to be used as the owners accommodation or converted into further guest rooms/accommodation. Although separate to the current guest area, the owners' suite can be accessed from the ground floor and first floor.

The improvements to the property continue with a cosy, yet generous, lounge with focal wood burning stove, spacious and modern kitchen, utility, WC, 'pantry'/storage room, boiler room and a first floor double bedroom with vaulted ceiling, hayloft storage area, shelved laundry storage area and large bathroom.

Externally, vehicular access is to the side, with ample parking for guests along with the patio area being an excellent space to enjoy those sunnier days.
