Potential Super-size Building Plot, Greysouthen


Guide price

We are currently offering two individual building plots, each with Outline Consent for a detached dwelling with further land / pony paddock available. However, the physical shape of the land, the wide frontage to the village road, and the spaciousness would all lend itself to a substantial single dwelling, set well back from the road, with imposing entrance and driveway. However, these proposals will be subject to a Planning Application and Planning Consent.

The land enjoys a superb setting, close to the heart of Greysouthen, an attractive and sought-after village lying just 3 miles to the west of Cockermouth. The plot is set within established surroundings amongst other village homes, but with glimpses of views opening up towards open countryside.

If this unique opportunity is of interest, our clients would be prepared to give the flexibility of timescale for purchasers to explore the necessary Planning Consent further.

Contact Tim Grisdale on 07850 654005 to discuss further.


Greysouthen lies just 3 miles from Cockermouth, well placed for easy access to major employment centres along the west coast, yet also handy for the attractions of the Lake District National Park. The village nestles within attractive rolling countryside, with street scenes which include a mix of traditional and more contemporary properties and is within the catchment area of Eaglesfield Paddle Primary School, which feeds to Cockermouth School. Nearby, the market town of Cockermouth offers an extensive choice of local, regional and national retailers Including leading supermarkets, together with a wide range of social/leisure opportunities, cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a sports complex/swimming pool and the Kirkgate Arts Centre.


Grant of Outline Planning Consent has been obtained for residential development. The current consent is for two detached dwellings, subject to approval of Reserved Matters. These will need to include details relating to design, layout, scale, materials and appearance of the proposed properties. Further information is available on the Allerdale Borough Planning website: Planning Reference OUT/2020/0012

Proposals to build out a single dwelling will require Planning Approval. Initial discussions suggest that this will be viewed favourably by Allerdale Borough Council.

For further information, please contact Tim Grisdale on 07850 654005.


As far as we are aware, all mains services are available in the village road. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to check the availability and cost of provision of services with the relevant statutory authorities.
