We are delighted to present this superb opportunity to purchase a highly attractive package comprising of detached 3-bed home, attached barn, separate 1-bed cottage, 2-bed lodge, various outbuildings, ménage and stables. Situated on a wonderful private site, surrounded by its own land, the property is in a peaceful spot yet remains very accessible to the main road network and local amenities. 

Fauld Mill Farm is situated on the edge of Longtown, which provides a good range of amenities, however Carlisle is just 7 miles by car and has a superb range of leisure and retail opportunities.  The city of Carlisle benefits from being on the West Coast mainline which provides fast rail services to London from just over 3 hours, and non-stop to Glasgow.  The M6 motorway at Junction 44 is also just over 5 miles from the property.

The property extends to 15.23 acres (6.17 Ha), with the land extending to 13.66 acres (5.53 Ha), and provides great opportunity for farming, equestrian or diversification in a superb location, therefore viewings are highly recommended to fully appreciate the private yet accessible location and the range of accommodation on offer.

Fauld Mill House is a superb family home with accommodation spread over two levels and an abundance of character, and also has potential to be extended into the attached barn (the former mill) if so desired, subject to the necessary permissions.

First Floor: Two Double Bedrooms, One Single Bedroom, Family Bathroom.

The kitchen benefits from fitted units with granite worksurfaces, integrated appliances, an electric range cooker and a breakfast bar.  The large living/dining room is flooded with natural light and boasts a multi-fuel stove on a raised hearth, double doors to the patio and access to the conservatory and porch.  The useful porch provides a cloaks area and direct access to the ground floor WC.  A utility room completes the ground floor accommodation.  Upstairs, three bright and well proportioned bedrooms can be found, while the bathroom comprises of a four piece suite to include free standing roll top bath, shower cubicle, WC and wash hand basin.

Exterior: The property is accessed via a gated and tree-lined driveway that wraps around the house and leads to a substantial parking area, which in turn leads down to the ménage and paddocks beyond. The gardens are well kept and include an area of orchard and pond and raised patio to the rear of the house; ideal for entertaining.  There are three stables and a workshop, in addition to the barn and garage. It is worth noting that the ménage was installed in 2020 and is fully enclosed and well drained.

Barn Cottage: Open plan Living Room/Kitchen, Double Bedroom, Shower Room, Patio.

The cottage is a versatile space, currently let providing a rental income, although would make an ideal annexe to the main house.  There is a modern fitted kitchen with granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances and the sitting area boasts a floor to ceiling window to the side elevation. Upstairs is a charming double bedroom with en suite shower room and double doors from the bedroom lead out to a raised, enclosed patio. N.B. This property has its own postcode and is effectively an additional separate residential dwelling.

The Buildings

The well maintained buildings can be utilised for a variety of uses and are briefly described below:

General purpose Shed

Fully insulated with sectional door, ground and first floor storage areas, WC.  Attached garage with double doors.

Shipping Containers

Two insulated steel containers (36' x 8') for storage, with power and light.


Brick built, under a new slate roof, presently for storage/office use.


Three wooden stables with tack room.


Being the former mill, the barn attached to the main house is currently unused but is structurally sound and has a new, steel roof structure clad in natural slate. It offers huge potential for the right purchaser to further develop, subject to the necessary permissions.

Timber Cabin (The Lodge)

40′ x 20′ two bedroom cabin.  Open plan kitchen/living/dining room with modern fixtures and fittings and patio doors to an external raised decked area.  Double bedroom, single bedroom and shower room.

The cabin can be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house, but a purchaser would require the relevant permissions to use it as a full time residence. Adjacent to the cabin are two further timber buildings; one is presently used as a utility room and the other could make an ideal home office.

The Land

The land offers good quality grazing, extending to 13.66 acres (5.53 hectares).  The land benefits from two roadside access points. The land has been well managed, stock proof and in good heart.
