Extra information

The area is the unspoiled part of Cumbria and, as such, is far more relaxing than the Lakes areas. The A66 is just 5 minutes away providing easy access to all surrounding areas. But the village is quiet and ideal for families with young children, with a small play park (swings, roundabout etc) an the end of the driveway. There are sheep in the fields adjoining the gardens front & back, and the garden is full of interest with rabbits, pheasants and even a woodpecker regularly "in residence". There is very little light pollution in the area, making it a great spot for star gazing on a clear evening and the property has a telescope for the clients to enjoy.
