The opportunity to farm on the shores of one of the UK’s most famous lakes is on offer through our Kendal office.

The traditional Cumbrian farm in Staveley-in-Cartmel near Ulverston is situated within the Lake District National Park and includes a period farmhouse, a range of stone barns and farm buildings, with over 70 acres of land.

New to the market, the farmhouse has been mostly untouched since it previously changed ownership in 1953. 

Incorporating period features such as open fireplaces and slate-flagged floors the variety of living accommodation; the farmhouse includes a kitchen, dairy, pantry, dining room on the ground floor with four bedrooms and a large bathroom on the first floor. 

Overlooking Windermere, the farm is available in 10 separate lots, with Lot 1 comprising the farmhouse, farm buildings and adjacent paddock. Further lots include various farm buildings and pasture land providing several paddocks, two larger blocks of pasture and lake frontage to Windermere.

Stephen Cockcroft, of Carter Jonas’ rural division in Kendal, said: “This is a rare opportunity to own a traditional working Cumbrian farm on the edge of Windermere. In an area popular with locals and desirable to investors from outside the Cumbrian region, Sandfold provides a fantastic opportunity for interested buyers.”

“With the variety lots available and scope for a buyer to make their mark on the property itself Sandfold Farm provides a manageable investment for both agricultural and amenity purchasers.”
