Far Moor End
Far Moor End is an outstanding property situated in the secluded valley of Ennerdale. Far Moor End is a renovated farmhouse and barn conversion, finished to a comfortable and welcoming style, sleeping 16 people in generously sized bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms. The accommodation is incredibly well appointed for large gatherings of friends and family, or for a group of walkers looking to tackle some of the outstanding fells in Ennerdale.
The house is a large social space with an impressive sitting room featuring a gallery seating area and the original exposed roof trusses and purlins. The room has superb views and patio doors opening onto the sun deck. There is also a generously proportioned dining room to comfortably accommodate 16 people dining together. Several of the bedrooms have high quality zip and link beds allowing flexibility for groups.
The private grounds at Far Moor End extend to 22 acres, featuring 15 acres of woodland, two paddocks, a wildflower meadow and three ponds. The property has a long frontage on the River Ehen, a Special Area of Conservation. Ennerdale Lake is a short walk from the house and the private grounds are visited by a wide variety of local wildlife.
Ennerdale is a remote, tranquil valley offering rock climbing, superb mountain hikes and interesting low level walks. There is direct pedestrian access to the fells and mountains from the door, family friendly cycle tracks in the valley and more challenging routes for mountain bikers. Fishing is available on the lake by permit.
Ennerdale Bridge is a short walk away and has two good pubs serving food. Further afield, the Georgian town of Cockermouth and Georgian port of Whitehaven both have supermarkets and pleasant town centres to look round. Keswick is a popular town for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts and is within a 30 minute drive from Far Moor End.

"Sleeping 16 in a renovated farmhouse and barn conversion in generously sized bedrooms with plenty of bathrooms, this is a particularly good house for families with young children, thanks to the games room with two full sized football tables. It’s also great for large gatherings, due to the impressive sitting room, or walkers, looking to tackle some of the outstanding fells in Ennerdale. The house offers superb views and the grounds of the house extend to 22 acres, featuring 15 acres of woodland, two paddocks, a wildflower meadow and three ponds."
