Once part of Howgill Castle, a fortified manor house dating back to mid 13th Century, The Granary at Low Howgill used to form part of a cluster of workers' accommodation and resides on a working farm run by the property's current owners. Anticipation for this property begins the moment you turn off the quiet country road and travel up the track, alongside the babbling stream. Low Howgill is surrounded by open farmland and wildlife as far as the eye can see, and this tranquil setting takes some beating for those seeking a peaceful base for their holiday.
The Granary is a delightful, one bedroomed annexe adjoining the owner's property. It is set in a picturesque cobbled courtyard surrounded by beautiful countryside. With windows on three sides, the accommodation benefits from plenty of natural light and pleasant views. The courtyard and surrounding gardens are immaculately kept and offer a starting point for pleasant strolls along Milburn Beck and into the nearby woodlands. The Granary was converted by its current owners approximately twenty years ago and has recently undergone a full refurbishment so benefits from modern carpets and floor coverings, freshly painted walls and new fabrics.
Located close to the village of Milburn in the upper Eden Valley, The Granary sits on the edge of the North Pennines and is only a stone's throw from the North Pennines Area of Outstanding National Beauty, the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This unique location makes the property an excellent choice for anyone wanting to explore the varied landscapes within this region of northern England. But if it is towns and heritage you crave, the historic market town of Appleby is less than 10 miles away, the Lake District town of Keswick is just under 40 miles, and Hadrian's Wall can be visited with little over an hour's drive. So, although the property's immediate surroundings offer a haven for anyone wanting to bask in its serenity, it is also an ideal base for those wishing to pack their holiday full of sightseeing or adventure.
Low Howgill Farm is renowned throughout Cumbria for the beef and lamb it produces and sells through it's own deli in Appleby, all of this is right on your doorstep!
