Description

The gallery is set in the picturesque village of Thornthwaite from an elevated position and is positioned to take full advantage of the ever changing outlooks of the surrounding Lakeland fells, including Lake Bassenthwaite and glorious Skiddaw. The gallery is housed in a 200 year old Cumbrian bank barn, offering a fantastic opportunity for a live/work lifestyle with the benefit of a 40 year history and displaying the work of over 140 exhibitors, many from Cumbria and the North West. In addition, the teashop offers light refreshments in a warm and welcoming atmosphere, continuing the experience.

The four cottages, The Cloisters, Birch Cottage, Elm Cottage and Rowan Cottage, are elegant and stylish, yet retain original character, totally in-keeping with the barn's heritage. All four holiday cottages have access to the mature, well maintained gardens to enjoy alfresco dining and the wonderful views. They also have access to the useful utility room with washing and drying facilities. There is the opportunity for The Cloisters to be utilised as owners' accommodation, as it has a separate outside area and entrance. Ample off-road gravelled parking is also available.

This is an exceptional opportunity to purchase a unique residence in a sought after location in the Lake District and Unesco world heritage site.

Thornthwaite is a peaceful village, located adjacent to the C2C cycling route, and offers many good footpaths for walking, with several routes into Whinlatter forest. A popular footpath from the centre of the village leads up beside the tumbling waters of Comb Beck, providing a sometimes steep but very attractive path into the heart of the forest. The Whinlatter Forest visitor centre is within walking distance. The village benefits from an excellent bus service, being on the Penrith-Keswick-Workington route. There are no shops in the village itself, but Braithwaite, just a mile away, provides two shops, public houses and restaurants.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Gas central heating and double glazing installed. Telephone line installed subject to BT regulations. Please note - the mention of any appliances and/or services within these particulars does not imply that they are in full and efficient working order.
