    About this property

    With your own 200-acre private estate this large luxury detached farmhouse with attached barn conversion is the perfect Lake District retreat for family get-togethers.
    Congratulations, you’ve stumbled across the house of your dreams! Ever wondered what it would be like to have your own private estate in the Lake District and own all the land as far as the eye can see? Well here’s your chance. By choosing to stay at S101306 you have access to 200 acres of fields, woodland and walks including a tarn and a stream with grounds that attract all kinds of birds, wildlife, flora and fauna. This is the ultimate country retreat with the most amazing panoramic views of the surrounding grounds, farmland and the Northern Cumbrian countryside to the west and north. Look to the east and you can see the tops of Skiddaw and the northern fells around Bassenthwaite going towards Keswick.
    No expense has been spared with the interior design and décor at S101306. A lot of careful thought has gone into delivering a memorable guest experience. Each room has been lovingly restored and finished to a high spec. Many of the original features of this Grade II listed farmhouse, dating back to the 1700s, are still prominent today including the large sash windows, the original stone steps and fireplaces, the beamed ceilings and thick stone walls, yet the element of contemporary luxury is evident throughout the property and there is even an artistic twist as you walk through, admiring the artwork. S101306 can sleep up to ten guests in five spacious and luxurious bedrooms including a comfortable twin bedded room. All bedrooms have plenty of storage and hanging space for your belongings as well as high quality furniture throughout. One of the most striking features is the size of some of the bathrooms, you’ll love the amount of free space and the walk-in showers, freestanding baths and overall quality of fixtures and fittings. The kitchen is full of the latest modern appliances with a central island and wine cooler; next door is a beautiful traditional dining room to accommodate the most regal of banquets. If you feel you’ve eaten too much, you can retire to the snug for a little snooze. The real design feature and heart of this house is a simply stunning living room created from a converted barn with original beams and floor to ceiling windows. At one end is a modern wood burner which makes the perfect focal point for a few glasses of wine after dinner, and at the other end, a galleried library and piano. This makes S101306 the ultimate venue for a special celebration or family gathering with the roaring wood burner and a sing song around the piano, it’s sure to make memories that will last a lifetime. Outside you’ll find ample parking, a large sunny patio complete with garden furniture for a breath of fresh countryside air, and of course, more amazing views. The property also produces its own beautiful spring water from a deep borehole, which is supplied through a state of the art filtration system.
    If you like walking, climbing, running or cycling there is an abundance of routes available in the vicinity as well as good access to the surrounding Lakeland Fells. S101306 is located just a couple of miles from the village of Embleton, between the popular areas of Lorton, Bassenthwaite and Cockermouth. If you fancy a day out, take a 4-mile drive to Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth and you won’t be disappointed. It has a good selection of shops, supermarkets, coffee shops and some great dining options. You can even take a tour of the famous Jennings Brewery beneath the old castle walls. If you’re a keen golfer you are just 3½ miles from your nearest course. Or take a trip to Bassenthwaite which is just 5½ miles away.
