Farmhouse in the Lake District National Park

Moor Farm is a charming farmstead property which has incredible views out over some of the best-loved features in the Lake District – Coniston Old Man and Dow Crag. The house itself is thought to date back to 1590 and has lots of period features including beamed ceilings and a fine old wood-burning stove.

The main property comprises: entrance hallway, cloakroom, dining room, sitting room, study, dairy and breakfast kitchen on the ground floor; on the first floor are the master bedroom suite, a further double bedroom and a family bathroom; the second floor has a further characterful bedroom with exposed beams.

In addition to the main house there are two substantial stone and slate barns, one of which has been converted in part, providing ancillary accommodation to that in the main house.
