You'll be living the dream at Wellrash Barn.... enjoy morning coffee in the sun filled conservatory, bake bread in the solid fuel Rayburn, enjoy the fruits of your labour from the produce in the garden and at the end of the day relax in the roll-top bath with a glass of wine or cosy up in the sitting room in front of a roaring wood-burner. But most importantly, appreciate the peace, quiet and privacy that the property offers - particularly by the 30x10m natural spring fed pond which you'll find tucked away under the trees with a small bridge at one end.

...Located centrally for Carlisle, Cockermouth and Keswick and in a small hamlet of equally desirable homes, Wellrash Barn is a 17th century barn conversion which offers fabulous family accommodation and has been extended, maintained and furnished to an exceptional standard in the past. There's a clever balance of charm and character which blends very well with the more modern touches. Inside there are 3 reception rooms, a conservatory, a kitchen with snug and a bedroom/study and upstairs you'll find 3 double bedrooms and a recently fitted bathroom. There's ample parking, a single garage and summerhouse and you won't be disappointed with the fabulous garden space which offers great potential to be self-sufficient. There are also delightful views over the countryside towards Scotland and it's handily placed for access to Carlisle and Penrith train stations - with fast trains to London.
