Full description

Like what you see? You could soon be waking up to this Lakeland view every morning!! Words can't describe adequately the Lorton Valley and surrounding fells and Whinfell Farm is nestled right at the heart of it at the end of a quiet village lane.

Substantial in size with many retained features this farmhouse offers spacious accommodation in need of an update and some repair ........ but it will so be worth the effort to restore this authentic farmhouse to its former glory and then you sit back and admire the views. Or ...... you could also purchase additional neighbouring land of 0.55 acre, currently used as a campsite but equally suitable for grazing or for ponies or try one of the local pursuits in your spare time ... climbing, fishing, painting, canoeing and maybe a bit of wild water swimming available just up the road.

The village of Lorton has its own primary school, church, pub and village shop and there's access to excellent secondary schools in Keswick and Cockermouth.
