Idyllic Smallholding in Northern Lake District For Sale!

Traditional farmhouse and buildings and land along with a registered caravan site and home to a scurry of red squirrels.

Our Carlisle office has launched to the market Grove Foot Farm, a charming 43.76 acre smallholding within the Lake District National Park. Located in the village of Thackthwaite in Cumbria, Grove Foot Farm includes a three bedroom farmhouse, outbuildings, and a CL registered touring caravan site and site with six static caravans. The farm is being sold as a whole with a guide price of £1,200,000.

The centrepiece of this property is the immaculate traditional stone-built farmhouse, which has an established garden that is even home to a family of red squirrels. This smallholding has some lovely Cumbrian buildings that are attached to either side of the main house which could, pending the correct and relevant permissions, be used to extend the existing house, or be developed into residential or holiday lets. Additional income generation comes from the current registered caravan site. The site has space for five touring caravans and a separate site accommodates six static caravans, which sees an average taxable profit of over £10,000. The additional former dairy buildings on the premises offer the opportunity to be used once more for farming or equestrian purposes.

Commenting on the sale, Emma Smith, Chartered Surveyor at H&H Land & Estates said, “This is a ring-fenced smallholding offering real potential for a variety of purposes and would be ideal for a hobby farmer or equestrian. Its use as a holiday destination could also be further developed, particularly as it has outbuildings ripe for conversion and is in such a popular and picturesque part of the Lake District. I am sure we will see hot competition for this highly desirable property.”

The land which includes a small area of mature woodland is in excellent condition and suitable for mowing or grazing.
