Sandwath Farm is an idyllic and private Eden Valley smallholding with around 16 acres, a traditional 3/4 bedroom Cumbrian farmhouse and a converted three bedroom mill house.
This rare and unique opportunity benefits from various large outbuildings, including brick barn with planning permission for a three bedroom holiday let. Located in a peaceful setting around one mile from Glassonby village and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The farmhouse and converted mill house are charming red sandstone properties, believed to date back to the 17th century. The buildings have been sympathetically renovated by the current owner, with wonderful period features remaining, including stone flagged floors and exposed beams. The properties have been beautifully finished and benefit from double glazing and partial underfloor heating.
The farm has a wonderful atmosphere and sense of privacy, set off a quiet lane and surrounded by beautiful Eden Valley countryside and Pennine fell views. The grounds are a haven with red squirrels sited and two tranquil becks meandering through the site, with opportunity for trout fishing and beck side picnics.
The site and outbuildings offer potential for business or equestrian use and the accommodation offers a great deal of flexibility, with scope for further development.
Sandwath Farm is located in a peaceful rural setting in the beautiful Eden Valley, around one mile from Glassonby village. The North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is nearby for outdoor pursuits, with the Lake District National Park less than 30 minutes drive.
There are excellent amenities in the nearby villages of Kirkoswald and Lazonby, including schools, pub, outdoor swimming pool, small supermarket plus Carlisle-Settle line train station. Penrith and Carlisle are accessible via the A6, both with major amenities and West Coast Main Line train stations.

Getting to Sandwath Farm
From Penrith take the A686 to Langwathby. Once over the bridge take the road into the village, going past the shop on your right, continue along and out of the village. Go through Little Salkeld and up the hill, follow this road into Glassonby. In the village, at the cross roads in the middle of the village take the right turn for Gamblesby. Follow the road for around one mile, continuing over the crossroads as it drops down a hill until you are in a slight dip and you then get to a five bar gate and entrance on the left hand side identified by a millstone.
