Just magical - Solway House is an exquisite, extended, four-bedroom detached period home situated in a picturesque location. QUOTE AP0121

Like something from a picture book, this property sits fabulously within the semi-rural hamlet of Longburgh - neighbour to historic Burgh-by-Sands.

The look of this property is so endearing with the perfect blend of old and new.

On a tour of this property, the first stop has to be the stunning boot room/entrance space, situated on the left-hand side of the property as you look at it. As soon as you open the door, your eyes will be drawn to the quirky, and very original wine cellar. A plethora of cupboards sit to the left side and there is a sink and plenty of space to remove muddy boots, jackets and wellies after a day walking on the nearby Solway marsh.

To the rear of the boot room, there is also a handy downstairs cloakroom/WC.

From this room, you enter the beating heart of this magnificent home... the perfect place where you can unwind and spend time with the family... welcome to the kitchen/family room!

Whether grabbing a coffee and some toast in the morning or catching up at the end of the day this space is perfect for any occasion. A bespoke kitchen sits to the rear flank and there is a heartwarming stove to keep the Cumbrian winter at bay!

This space also features a cute little pantry situated under the stairs.

From here you have access to the snug/home office and also to the utility room.

The snug/home office is another great place to spend time, again, featuring a stove. This room has a real homely feel and you feel like you can escape from the world in here. Whether catching up on emails and paperwork or relaxing, reading a book or listening to records this is a great go-to room.

The utility room has been very well planned and executed - there is a good range of storage and the engine room of the house has plenty of space on offer too.

Finishing the ground floor off in spectacular fashion is the gorgeous main living space. This part of the house is part of a sympathetic and meticulously constructed extension. A room for any occasion! This is such a relaxing and calm area, again, featuring a stove, which provides a great heat source and a wonderful room focal point. 

One side of this room features bi-fold doors. Imagine throwing these open on a lovely summer day, and spilling out onto the garden. The other side of the room has a set of French doors leading out to the other side of the garden.

Stairs from the kitchen family area lead up onto the first-floor, landing, and from here you can access all principal first-floor rooms.

The main bedroom is simply stunning. This is part of the recent extension and sits directly above the extended living room. Light floods into this room via the roof lights, there is also great storage here
via the wardrobes cleverly installed at the rear of the room. Its luxurious ensuite shower room finishes this whole space off.

There are also two further very generous double bedrooms as well as a good-sized additional bedroom and attractively presented bathroom.

The property boundary is fully enclosed once the gates at the front are closed. 

The front gates allow access to a driveway area at the front and then the garden wraps around the sides and rear.

There are various areas where you can relax and move around the garden to either catch the sun or get some shade.

There is a lovely area to the rear where you can get the pizza oven cranked up and entertain guests.

The garden to the front is grass and sits beautifully in keeping with the property.

Around the sides and rear everything is low maintenance so when you do get some downtime, you can make the most of it - sit back and unwind.


The hamlet of Longburgh is next door to the village of Burgh-by-Sands and sits in a special location near the Solway Firth. This whole area boasts a rich Roman history with the line of Hadrian's Wall close by. There's also a nearby monument marking the site where King Edward I died on his way to war in 1307 on the Burgh marshes!

The marshes within the Solway Coast Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty offer so much for nature lovers to explore and for the more energetic, there are some really impressive cycle routes for road biking and touring where you can get away from it all and feel like you have the world all to yourself.

Nearer to home, village life in Longburgh and Burgh by Sands has lots to offer with the much-loved Greyhound Inn being the perfect place for a cosy pub meal and a pint. There's a real community spirit in the area too with a varied timetable of events for all ages in the nearby parish hall year-round.

The local Burgh-by-Sands School is rated “Good” by Ofsted and within easy reach, there are excellent choices of both secondary and independent fee-paying schools in Carlisle and Wigton.

This tranquil rural location is surprisingly well-connected. 

The city of Carlisle with its shops, eateries, castle, museum and parks is a short drive away and both the A69 and M6 can be reached easily. Longburgh is also the perfect location to access the Lakeland Fells when you want to delve deeper into this beautiful part of Cumbria.
