CA7 3NX Ghyll Farm, Westnewton, Wigton, Cumbria


Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
With origins back to the 18th century, this is a most deceptive former farmhouse situated in approx. 5 acres, all fully tastefully refurbished and briefly comprising three reception rooms, superb fitted kitchen, four bedrooms, a separate self contained suite ideal for a dependant relative, traditional outbuildings, a further range of substantial adjoining stores and offices with development potential (subject to the appropriate consents), ample yard, gardens and a field. This fascinating property lies in one of our area’s most attractive villages, so handy for Wigton (8 miles), Silloth (7 miles) and Aspatria (just over a mile), each town catering well for everyday needs. The Lake District National Park and Solway Coast are both within easy reach and also Carlisle/M6 to the east and the towns of west Cumbria to the south.

Ground Floor


Ghyll Farm presents an unusual opportunity for a number of potential purchasers. Not only is there excellent family accommodation but the ground and first floor “integral suite” provides scope for a dependant relative or older children, or simply to complement the existing living accommodation within the main house.

Adjoining the main farmhouse on its western side is a substantial range of buildings used previously by the present vendors for commercial purposes but now providing obvious scope, subject to relevant planning, for redevelopment perhaps to provide additional living accommodation, for cottages or flats for letting purposes, or for a business venture, making use of the ample concreted yard and secure entrance gates at the side.

With village green with a stream running parallel to the village road. At the rear are further easily kept flat gardens with the field behind ideal for keeping livestock, especially with the excellent steel framed barn just behind the main house. There are further stores/garages offering storage or workshop facilities.

The house has been renovated over the last 20 years by the vendors in a style very much in keeping with the original buildings and, overall, an inspection of this most interesting property is highly recommended.
