Eden Banks Farm traditional stone farmhouse sat surrounded by fields and woodland

Cumbrian Farm on the Banks of the River Eden

Eden Banks Farm near Cumwhitton in Cumbria, is an excellent 107-acre stock farm located to the south east of Carlisle. Ring fenced, this productive farm for sales includes a four-bedroom traditional brick farmhouse, good quality grazing and mowing land, a range of traditional buildings, and its very own Nissan Hut.

Located approximately nine miles from Carlisle, with frontage onto the river Eden, Eden Banks Farm is for sale through the Carlisle Borderway office of H&H Land & Estates with a guide price £1,200,000. It is to be sold as a whole freehold with vacant possession being given upon completion.

Spilt across fourteen fields within its own ringfence, the 107 acres of land, which includes 22 ½ acres of woodland, is all in good heart with predominantly hedgerow and post and wire fence boundaries.

The farm is not situated within an NVZ and the land is not entered into any environmental stewardship schemes. The woodland area which runs down to the banks of the River Eden is an ancient semi natural woodland.

The extensive range of outbuildings include traditional stone buildings set in a courtyard with a double height stone barn, loose boxes, stores, and general-purpose sheds. There are also a number of more modern timber and steel portal frame buildings suitable for livestock housing.

Thomas Armstrong, Director at H&H Land & Estates on launching this property to market said: “This is a farm which offers potential to establish both a quality livestock enterprise, and, subject to the relevant planning consents, diversification opportunities. There is ongoing demand for this type of farm, and I believe that it will appeal to existing farmers, both local and those looking to move to the area.

“For buyers who love the land, this is a wonderful example of a small livestock farm in a lovely Cumbrian setting, with the additional attraction of the ancient woodland and the extensive frontage on the River Eden which gives the farm its name.”

The brick farmhouse sits surrounded by the land, with mature gardens to the front, offering family accommodation including a large farmhouse dining kitchen, a separate snug and oak beamed sitting and dining rooms. The house retains many original features such as the original range and some stone flagged flooring. There is also the potential to extend the accommodation into the neighbouring granary loft with the necessary consents.
