High Winder House and Cottages, Tirril, Penrith, Cumbria


High Winder Holiday Cottages have been successfully trading for 18 years, so this sale offers an exceptional Lake District lifestyle with the benefits of a long established successful holiday letting business in a prime location, with Ullswater just over the hill.

The business operates a high standard of service and bookings are handled by a high profile local lettings agency. Further details can be found at www.highwindercottages.co.uk. All fixtures and fittings are included in the guide price and the business is sold with the benefit of all ongoing bookings.

The site is approached via a private lane, leading into the front grounds, with a number of parking areas for the house and cottages. Well-managed grounds and land surround the accommodation, with the site having four enclosed paddocks totalling around two acres.

The original farmhouse dates back to the 1630s and has been sympathetically restored and has an abundance of character throughout.

An attractive entrance hall with stone flagged floor leads into two spacious reception rooms, both with impressive sandstone fireplaces and stoves. The farmhouse style kitchen, with breakfast area and homely Aga range has stable and French doors opening onto the gardens. A rear hallway leads into a garden room, with lobby area to a cloakroom, utility and storeroom.

To the first floor are four bedrooms, the master having an ensuite bathroom, with a further shower room and study on this floor. The adjacent Winder Barn holiday cottage can be accessed from both floors, allowing for a larger permanent residence with 7 bedrooms and 5 bath/shower rooms.

The three bedroom barn conversion was undertaken to a high standard and retains much of the character of the original barn.

A detached contemporary building houses three further holiday cottages, with one, two and four bedrooms. Each has open plan kitchen and living areas, with some rooms having magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. 

There are various stores and laundry rooms on the site, with many of the spaces offering flexible usage.  

All of the buildings have been modernised to a high standard, with new plumbing, wiring, boilers, high levels of insulation and a new barn roof.

The grounds are a particular feature, with a variety of trees, lawns, seating areas and a natural pond. The site is bordered by woodland and attracts an abundance of wildlife, with daily visits from red squirrels.  The paddocks are to rear of the site and are currently used for pony and alpaca grazing.  A range of timber-framed outbuildings are located in an enclosed yard, including stables, workshop, kennel, stores and a tractor shed.

High Winder has direct pedestrian access from the grounds onto Askham Fell, offering superb walks and magnificent views of Ullswater and the north Lakeland fells.  The unique secluded position offers a tranquil lifestyle, with the accommodation and land allowing for flexible use and an excellent income potential.

The nearby villages of Askham and Pooley Bridge both have shops and well-reputed pubs and restaurants, including the award winning Askham Hall.  The market town of Penrith is less than 5 miles away offering further amenities and excellent national transport links via the
M6 and West Coast Main Line.
