Westmorland House is a breath taking, detached stone farmhouse in a rural, yet accessible, location in the Eden Valley and now part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The property sits in close upon 4.5 acres of land and the surroundings are exquisite. It is located mid-way between Crosby Garrett Fell and Ravenstonedale Fell. There are panoramic views across the fells to the Howgills in the distance. It is within a dark skies designated area, making it ideal for star gazing.

The property is approximately 2.5 miles from the village of Newbiggin on Lune and about 6 miles from the quaint market town of Kirkby Stephen. There are excellent travel links via the main A685 route from Brough to Tebay (M6 and A66) and rail from Kirkby Stephen on the Settle - Carlisle line.

The farmhouse and attached barn was originally converted around 20 years ago and more recently has been beautifully renovated by the current sellers. The property has been finished to an exceptionally high standard with quality fixtures and fittings. Works have included new kitchens, bathrooms and utility room, changes to the layout, new windows and French doors, updates to the electrics and re decoration throughout.

On the ground floor is a sitting room with stone open fire and dual aspect windows, and a sizable dining kitchen with pantry. There is a new utility room and ground floor WC/ shower room with direct access to the garden, a fourth bedroom, second kitchen and large dining room. Upstairs are three large double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms.

The accommodation is very flexible, the sellers currently split the property to provide a main house and a holiday let, using the study as the connecting room. This is optimal for multi generation living and has excellent business potential, equally the layout works as a fabulous family home.

Externally, there is a large lawn garden with mature trees. There is a gravelled driveway, parking and turning space for a number of vehicles. The timber outbuilding has power and would make an exceptional workshop. At the front is a pleasant gravelled patio enclosed by dry stone wall.

The land is accessed via pedestrian and vehicular gates from the garden, the land extends to in the vicinity of 4 acres of pasture land, with no rights of way across the land. There is an old stone quarry and disused lime kiln in the field and a stream at the bottom. The current owners have an arrangement with a local farmer, who pays for grazing sheep on the land.

Westmorland House is an ideal family, holiday or retirement home offering flexible accommodation, set amongst rolling hills and with magnificent scenery all around.
