Irtside is a fine example of a detached Colonial style villa which occupies a plot of just over two acres and sits in a dramatic position above the River Irt, looking out over one of the most picturesque mountain landscapes in the Lake District.

The established grounds include formal areas of lawn, secluded seating and dining areas plus stream-side wildlife gardens. This is a rare opportunity and one not to be missed.

A private shared driveway leads up from the roadside past the property to a sizeable parking area with stone balustrade overlooking the wildlife garden and access to a detached double garage with attached workshop.
A path from this parking area then leads down past a wildlife pond into a wild meadow area with various fruit trees which borders a stream. In total gardens measure 2.07 acres.

Holmrook is a pretty, linear village set beside the River Irt and on the fringe of the Lake District National Park. The village has a number of facilities including the Lutwidge Arms hotel, post office, village hall, mechanic, a local train station (2 miles away), petrol station with convenience store and St Pauls church. The delights of the Western fells, including Scafell Pike, England's highest mountain are on the doorstep in addition to Englands deepest lake, Wastwater.
