High Winder House and Four Spacious Holiday Cottages, Tirril, Between Askham and Pooley Bridge, CA10 2LS
Lying within the Lake District National Park and occupying an idyllic position overlooking the surrounding farmland and woods, High Winder comprises the original farmhouse with four bedrooms, the oldest part of which is understood to date from about 1630 together with the four cottages, Winder Barn, Winder Green, Winder Gyhll and Little Winder, having 3, 4, 2 and 1 bedrooms respectively.
Situated high in the Lakeland hills above the northern end of Ullswater and approached by a private lane, High Winder possesses a degree of seclusion and tranquillity rarely found. Enjoying panoramic views over farmland towards the Lowther, Eamont and Eden valleys to the Pennine hills beyond, there is a prospect to the east extending on a clear day from the edge of the Yorkshire Dales to the Scottish Borders in the north. The grounds have direct access to the Lakeland fells and a 5 minute walk provides an inspiring view over Ullswater and much of northern Lakeland to the west.
Winder Barn lies adjacent to High Winder House and has the benefit of connecting doors at both levels providing an exceptional degree of flexibility of use whilst the other three cottages form a separate building.
The cottages have been successfully operated as a business trading as High Winder Cottages for about 18 years. The sale, therefore, affords a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious and very comfortable house of substantial antiquity and great character together with land and buildings and the benefit of a long established holiday letting business.
Although enjoying total seclusion High Winder is readily accessible with Pooley Bridge at the foot of Ullswater and the most attractive village of Askham about 2 miles away. Both villages have village shops and public houses and provide basic facilities whilst the flourishing market town of Penrith and Junction 40 on the M6 are only about 15 minutesﾒ drive away.
A most attractive carefully renovated and restored former farmhouse dating from the mid 17th century occupying a truly exceptional position together with four spacious high quality holiday cottages, extensive grounds, outbuildings, stables and paddocks.
