Rachel Bagshaw, head of Land Agency (South Lakes) at H&H Land & Estates said: “This is a fantastic Lake District property located within the and it is ideal for someone looking to escape to a quiet rural location.

"The house and grounds are a great foundation for modernisation and would allow buyers to make it their own by fully utilising the potential of the property. With the increasing demand and lack or rural real estate for sale of this calibre, we expect it to be a much sought after property.”
