Embleton, Cockermouth

Guide price

Bedrooms: 8
NESTLED WITHIN APPROXIMATELY 1.5 ACRES OF GARDEN AND WOODLAND, with a backdrop of Sale Fell, is this most interesting and delightful five bedroomed house with adjoining three bedroomed annexe and double garage.

It's perfectly located with gorgeous pastoral and fell views in all directions and is convenient for the A66 to Keswick and the Lake District as well as Cockermouth and the west coast towns and industries.

There's also a great choice of Outstanding Primary & Secondary Schools within 7 miles.

The original house dates back to Georgian times and has been sympathetically extended over the years to provide super living space, all of which is particularly spacious with bags of natural light and charm. There's a great mix of old and new, all of which blend seamlessly together to create this very desirable family home. The annexe could be used for holiday lets, thus generating an income, and the grounds are super and include a formal garden, a large informal garden (perfect for growing fruit and veg and perhaps keeping chickens!) and the woodland adds a little extra to what is already a super proposition.

Trough Bridge has been our home for over 20 years, and it has been a lovely place to live. When we moved here from Northumberland our neighbours in the village were welcoming and we have made many friends here. It is a comfortable house with some super features and lots of room for family and friends. The double garage easily accommodates two cars, a work bench and several bikes and there is a large parking area behind the house where we keep our campervan. We have enjoyed living in the Lake District National Park, it s a privilege to have the Fells and Lakes so close and over the years we have been able to enjoy walking, running, swimming and cycling in this beautiful area. Having a large garden and greenhouses has meant we have been able to grow a lot of our own fruit and vegetables. There is also a more formal garden with flowering shrubs and trees. We enjoy the annual succession of snowdrops, daffodils, wood anemone, bluebells and other wildflowers in our little woodland area as winter progresses into spring each year. We are also visited by a wide variety of birds as well as red squirrels, badgers, frogs, toads, and, occasionally, a deer. The Embleton Spa Hotel and the Wheatsheaf gastro pub are just up the road and we re within easy reach of Bassenthwaite Lake Station Café and The Pheasant Inn.
