This beautiful stone farmhouse, located on Po House Farm and looking onto an original stone dove tower with the Whicham Valley and Black Combe Fell beyond, was once owned by John Myers, cousin of William Wordsworth. The house has been restored keeping its character with original oak beams, exposed stone walls and original Lakeland slate floors.
Fell View is arranged with a large living room/dining room on the ground floor with a wood burner for those cosy evenings. There is a separate kitchen and wet room-style bathroom with shower/toilet on the ground floor. The upper floor has been organised on an optional ‘open-plan’ basis, reflecting the historical layout of the house while maximising the fell and valley views and preserving the visibility of the original beams and sense of space. Given the upper floor arrangement, Fell View can be occupied as a generous space for two people with the additional sleeping area used for lounging (it has wonderful views of the valley and fells). When occupied by four people, the sleeping areas can be separated by using the barn-style doors, but will share access from the ground floor. The upstairs sleeping area boasts a large en-suite bathroom with a freestanding bath and toilet with access from the main sleeping area.
A paradise for lovers of wildlife and birds, the house is located amongst 5 acres of garden and woodland and surrounded by fields in the Lake District National Park. There are wonderful walks from the door, and just 1¾ mile away is the Irish Sea and a beautiful, dog-friendly beach at Silecroft. The Whicham Valley is remote, unspoilt and an idyllic corner of the Lake District, ideal for walkers, mountain bikers, climbers, nature lovers and those enjoying the peace and beauty of the countryside. The Duddon Valley, Southern Lakes and fells are easily reached with Scafell Pike, Ennerdale Water, Wastwater and Coniston Water all within half an hour’s drive. Visit Muncaster Castle, La’al Ratty Miniature Steam Railway or the South Lakes Wild Animal Park. Horse riding is available nearby including Cumbria Heavy Horses and beach rides at Silecroft. Massage and beauty treatments can be arranged nearby or at the house. Fell View can be booked together with The Chapel (26506) to accommodate up to 7 guests. Beach 1¾ mile. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
