A successful two bedroom stone holiday cottage with adjoining three bedroom residential property, requiring completion, with approx. 11.5 acres of off-lying land with barn, river frontage and fishing rights
The vendors have kept show livestock, including cattle sheep and alpacas, as well as running the very successful holiday let. They have recently begun conversion of the adjoining property into a three bedroom residential unit, which is at second fix stage and will require completion. Planning ref: 07/0538 approved May 2018
There are magnificent views in all directions from both the properties and from the land.
The property is situated in the Upper Lune Valley an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of The Lake District and close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Village of Orton is close by and has a pub and a Post Office / general store. Kirkby Stephen, just a little further afield, has a wider range of facilities, as do the well known towns of Kendal and Penrith. J38 of the M6 is approx. two miles away, providing convenient and easy access to the major cities of the North West and beyond.
The current owners have lived in a log cabin on the land until recently but an appeal for planning permission has been refused.

Just a quick thank you to you and your company for the help we received from you all. Every conversation with staff members was pleasant and caring. We will definitely recommend Rural Scene to others.
I really don’t know how to thank you for the last 2 months of your time you have been priceless and you are amazing at what you do and have helped to change my life 💝💝💝💝 Due to how amazing you clearly are we have so much trust and respect for you that we are going to be delighted to place our cottage on the market with Rural Scene once we have moved and we would recommend you without hesitation to anybody needing to sell a rural property x
We just wanted to pass on our enormous thanks for the hard work you and your company put into selling our property and helping with the purchase of this house. We also want to thank you for your unfailing support, encouragement and cheerfulness through what was, for us, a very stressful time
I just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your tremendous work during the sale of our property. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster at times but you did a great job in lining up the buyers for us. From the get-go I've felt we're in good hand with Rural Scene. Estate agents don't always get the best press but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their smallholding.
I felt I must write to you both to express my gratitude for the work Abi Rhodes has done on the sale of M......... From the initial meeting she has demonstrated expert knowledge in our type of property that had just been lacking from other agents and filled us with confidence. Throughout the marketing and sale she has been thoroughly professional yet friendly in dealing with the 77 viewings we had to undertake to get to the final sale. Some of the people as we have neared the sale have frankly been rude and in some cases unpleasant and Abi has dealt with them all and shielded us from it completely. She has worked tirelessly to get us finally to completion. I would not hesitate in recommending your company to anyone looking to market the properties you work with.
