Prime Lifestyle Property with Established Business in Idyllic Setting

9th February 2017

Michael C L Hodgson sister company of H&H Land and Property has just launched to market, Grove farm, which is an outstanding property and includes an established business. For those looking for a complete lifestyle change, the property consists of a Lake District farmhouse, four 4 star holiday cottages and a range of outbuildings. The holiday cottage business provides a substantial income.  Being sold as a going concern, Grove Farm, Ambleside has a guide price of £1,950,000.

Extending to 1.87 acres, with breath-taking scenery, and located within the Lake District National Park, there is the opportunity to purchase additional acreage, available by separate negotiation.

Located in a spectacular position on the easterly slopes of the Stock Valley, just above Ambleside on the northern edge of Lake Windermere, the property offers a refurbished traditional period farmhouse, four holiday cottages converted from the original barns, a range of barn buildings, office and a self-contained apartment.

The farmhouse has many features including exposed beams, polished wood floors, impressive stone fireplaces, wood burning stoves, and a characterful kitchen with handmade units, and a Rayburn stove. The farmhouse is ideal as a family home, but it could also provide additional rental revenue if so desired.  The farmhouse and holiday cottages are surrounded by gardens with scenic sitting areas, where guests can fully appreciate the truly outstanding backdrop of the Lakeland fells.

Colin Tomlinson Director for Michael CL Hodgson, commenting, said:  “Grove Farm is an exceptional property in a spectacular location, which will appeal to a wide range of buyers.

“It is rare that we see such an outstanding lifestyle property come to the market in this area of outstanding natural beauty.  Selling the property as a going concern, adds to the appeal, it is literally ready for a buyer to move in, providing a seamless transition and an immediate income stream.”

With views towards Lake Windermere and the Old Man of Coniston and the Langdales on the far horizon, the four, 4 star holiday cottages have been converted from a traditional Lakeland stone barn.  High Grove provides 2/3 bedroom accommodation, Middle Grove offers 2 bedroom guest accommodation, whilst Grove Corner and Little Grove are single bedroom units. A wide range of outdoor pursuits include walking, hill climbing, cycling and water sports.  The cottages are an idyllic holiday retreat.

Joint selling agents are Savills.
