Description

Knipe Hall is a Grade II listed period detached farmhouse set in grounds of about 3 acres in the idyllic and tranquil Lowther Valley, with south and west facing gardens. It offers the opportunity to leave everything behind and take advantage of the peace and tranquillity and be able to walk out of the front door into beautiful countryside in this unspoilt area. For the adventurous there are activities nearby including cycle hire, fishing and horse riding. Whilst the surrounding area is perfect for walking and cycling with its quiet scenic roads and walks from the doorstep.
Set just off Knipe Moor, in an exceptional rural setting - it is but a short distance from major access routes. The property dates from the early 17th Century and retains many period features including stone mullioned windows, flagged floors and impressive exposed timbers, which combine with a stylish bespoke kitchen, stone open fireplaces and contemporary bathroom fittings. The property has an enclosed garden and patio area with furniture, perfect for relaxing and taking in the fabulous surroundings. The property has a fabulous ’party barn’ suitable for everyone to get together, perfect for that special occasion.

About the local area

Ullswater is the Lake District's second largest lake at nine miles long. Located in the eastern side of Cumbria, it bends and twists its way through dramatic mountain scenery on one side and a gently curving shoreline of green fields and woodland on the other.

Boating centres and marinas nestle unobtrusively on the lake edge, perfect for the water sports enthusiasts, or visitors can relax and enjoy the scenery from one of the steamers that have sailed the lake since 1855.

Many of the Lake District's many walks have their starting point from around Ullswater, including the renowned trek to Helvellyn's summit via Striding Edge. Or for the less energetic there are many low-level walks through beautiful countryside.

Of note is Glenridding which sits on the south western shore and is surrounded by the fells with wonderful scenic views. Pooley Bridge on the northern shore, with its 16th Century Bridge, Lakeland greystone houses and quaint teashops and Patterdale just to the south of Ullswater, cradled by mountains.
