The Property
Foldgate Farm offers a remarkable and rare lifestyle and business opportunity surrounded by glorious and peaceful Cumbrian countryside within the Lake District National Park. The property comprises a five bedroom traditional farmhouse and a magnificent six bedroom barn conversion along with a stone-built stable block, two substantial modern outbuildings and land extending in all to around 22.42 acres.

The farmhouse and barn currently operate as a successful holiday let business that has proved to be hugely popular with an impressive income stream. In addition, the land has been let out to local farmers for grazing of sheep and horses. Interested parties will have a wealth of possibilities to consider, with the option to continue or expand the current business, farm the land as a smallholding or develop a lifestyle with a private home accompanied by holiday lets, Airbnb or a Bed & Breakfast business. Development of the land is possible. Foldgate Farm is perfectly located to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, whilst enjoying the remarkable unspoiled landscape.

Foldgate Farmhouse
The farmhouse is a fantastic example of a traditional Cumbrian farmhouse that has been thoughtfully updated to retain a host of character and original features whilst adding contemporary touches and décor to create welcoming space for modern living.

The ground floor has two generous reception rooms, the sitting room and snug, one with warming woodburner and the other a feature fireplace. The kitchen/dining room has attractive exposed ceiling beams and stonework along with slate flooring. There is a fine range of modern cabinetry with a country style and ample space for a table and chairs. The kitchen is further served by a practical utility room that also houses the boiler and hot water tank. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a well-appointed shower room.

There are four bedrooms with varying outlooks on the first floor. The principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room and expansive walk-in storage. A door to the rear opens to an external decked area with space to relax and view the surroundings. The three additional bedrooms are all generous doubles and are served by the family bathroom. Stairs from the landing continue to the second floor and the fifth bedroom. Skylights bathe the room in light and highlight the characterful beams. There is space for seating in this impressive suite which is served by a bright en-suite shower room.

The Barn
The Barn is a gorgeous conversion of a huge original stone building that is both striking and appealing. It has been cleverly configured to offer six bedroom accommodation; a five bedroom conversion across the first and second floors plus a one bedroom annexe forming the ground floor. This provides great flexibility with the option to use the whole barn as one or close off the ground floor for separate use.

The ground floor annexe includes a sweeping open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen. Slate flooring runs throughout with French doors and a separate single door opening to the courtyard at the front. The kitchen is fitted with units at wall and floor level. A utility room has an extra sink, space for appliances and a shower cubicle to one corner. The annexe sleeping accommodation comprises a double bedroom with an en-suite shower room and door to the courtyard. There is also a separate bathroom tucked away to one corner of the open plan living area.

The first floor can be reached by an internal staircase or by separate access from the rear of the barn. A glazed door with glazed surrounds open to the magnificent open plan sitting room, dining room and kitchen. A beautiful spindled staircase rises with a half turn to the upper floor and is positioned to help define the different areas of this expansive space. The sitting area has a wonderful stone inglenook fireplace to one side. Continuing to the dining area there is space for a huge dining table and chairs to host friends and family. The kitchen benefits from bespoke fitted storage and units crafted from reclaimed pitch pine and a range of appliances including a range cooker. There are two bedrooms found on the first floor, one of which benefits from an en-suite bathroom.

The staircase leads to the galleried landing which overlooks the atrium entrance below. There is space here for a relaxing reading or study area. Three bedrooms each have en-suite facilities, with the largest being a Jack & Jill shower room to the landing. All of the bedrooms are light and airy with beautiful wooden flooring and wooden beams to the vaulted ceilings, and all three benefit from built-in cupboards.

Appliances, hot tubs, AGAs, furniture and all facilities to enable properties to maintain their commercial options within both the farmhouse and the barn may be available by separate negotiation.

Foldgate Farm is positioned in the south west of the Lake District National Park in glorious peaceful countryside. The farmhouse and barn are approached onto an open parking and courtyard area with space for numerous vehicles. Facing the barn is a stone-built stable block with four stables and each property has its own private seating and barbecue area. A wild meadow garden provides a haven for insects and wildlife.

The land at Foldgate Farm sweeps away and extends in all to around 22.42 acres with a stream running through. The land is divided into paddocks and fields with dry-stone wall boundaries. There are two large modern outbuildings with electric supplied. The outbuildings are positioned to the south of the farmhouse and barn, with the first measuring 17.9m x 13.4m whilst the second measures 19.5m x 13.4m.
