An 'exceptional' 162-acre plot is up for grabs in the Lake District.

On the market for the first time in 2024, the parcel of land lies four miles from Windemere and Kendal, within the Lake District National Park boundaries.

According to H&H Land & Estates' South Lakes office, their expectation is for high competition due to the location and suitability for carbon offsetting or Biodiversity Net Gain.

The land, close to Crosthwaite and known as Lord's Lot, is being sold either as two separate or a single lot.

Pricing starts at £200,000 for 25.77 acres and £600,000 for 136.35 acres.

Rachel Bagshaw, H&H Land & Estates’ associate director, said: "Opportunities to acquire a parcel of land of this size in this part of Cumbria on the open market are becoming increasingly scarce.

"We know that it is going to appeal to a broad range of potential buyers.

"We would highly recommend early enquiries from potential purchasers, whatever their interest."

Lord's Lot has significant horticultural and nature conservation interest.

Apart from its potential use for livestock farming, the property also has potential for government environmental schemes.

As the land possesses no environmental designations, Lord's Lot is considered ideal for initiatives aimed at preserving and enhancing natural attributes.

Both lots come as enclosed parcels with natural water sources, and picturesque views across the Winster Valley and the Lakeland fells.

Their inclusion in Countryside Stewardship and carbon offsetting programs such as the Wood Pasture and Biodiversity Net Gain, present the opportunity for development.
