The property is located in an idyllic rural setting just two miles south-east of Windermere and two miles north-west of Crook in the Lake District National Park [a recently recognised UNESCO World heritage Site].

Borwick Fold presents an excellent opportunity to purchase a delightful former farm steading in an idyllic, rural setting which enjoys extended views of the Lake District Fells including the Langdale Pikes, Pavey Ark and Crinkle Craggs. The property includes a substantial six bedroom former farmhouse originally constructed in 1703 by Mr George Borwick as a pack horse inn. The house benefits from original oak panelling and beams and certainly has character. The property also benefits from a patio and BBQ area to the rear, highly notable garden and garage area, a traditional building that has excellent development potential subject to receiving the relevant planning  permission, a useful range of modern farm buildings and two neighbouring paddocks amounting to around 4.52 acres [1.83 hectares] in total. The farmhouse has previously been split to provide a five bedroom house and one bedroom holiday let.

The farmhouse is offered with the benefit of a well presented lawned area and garage to the north over the adjacent highway. The garden enjoys excellent views over the Lake District Fells including the Langdale Pikes, Pavey Ark and Crinkle Crags. To the south and west of the steading are two useful paddocks, extending to 4.30 acres [1.74 hectares] in total. The paddock immediately to the south of the steading provides good grazing and can be accessed separately from the land along the public bridleway. The field to the west is part covered in juvenile native woodland and currently used as sheltered grazing for the homeowners stock and chickens.
