Ireby, Wigton


It is located in the picturesque fell village of Ireby on edge of the Lake District National Park, within easy reach of iconic North Lakeland fells, lakes and market towns. The residence is set within delightful grounds overlooking open countryside and hills, with distant views of the Skiddaw fell range to the South.

This handsome property was built in the Victorian era as the village vicarage and has retained much of the original grandeur and period features. The rooms are of generous proportions with high ceilings and large windows offering wonderful views of the grounds and surrounding countryside.

This is a superb opportunity to acquire a stunning period property and successful holiday accommodation business in a prime location, with scope for growing the income.  There is also potential to reinstate the house as an impressive private residence, subject to consent to change of use.  

Woodlands benefits from the Governments Non-Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive, which covers the complete cost of the central heating and hot water which is provided by the biomass boiler until September 2032.

The peaceful village of Ireby lies on the northern boundary of the Lake District National Park to the north of the iconic Skiddaw fell range.  The village has a primary school and pub and is well known for its annual folk music festival.  Beautiful open countryside and dramatic fells surround the village with numerous walks on the doorstep. 

The northern Lake District fells and lakes are a short distance away, including Over Water tarn and Bassenthwaite Lake.  The Lakeland towns of Keswick and Cockermouth are within easy each and the A595 offers excellent links to Carlisle with West Coast Main Line train station.
