Whatever you decide, Lingwood Lodge gives the best of both worlds - a central location in a peaceful setting, with the bonus of splendid views and extensive parking!

The entrance to Lingwood Lodge is somewhat of a wow-factor. From first entering the private tarmac driveway you are warmly greeted by the long handsome home, set back from the road, and elevated in front of you. Grand yet understated with exposed stonework leading up to crisp white walls, topped with traditional slate roof tiles. The home seems to blend in, yet stand out all at once.
Make your way round to the steps that lead up to an impressive and inviting terrace, that runs practically the full length of the home. Stop and admire the views before entering the home through the front door.

A warm welcome into a generous porchway, ideal for hanging up coats and storing wet brollies, opens up into the hallway where the open spindles of the staircase reveal glimpse of what is on offer upstairs.


The rooms at Lingwood Lodge offer a great deal of versatility. The ground floor comprises four bright and airy bedrooms, with vistas out to the peaceful garden to the front, all benefiting from en-suite shower rooms as well as a generous dining room, kitchen and utility towards the rear of the home.

The four bedrooms are spacious, neutrally decorated and have a calming effect with lovely views of the Lake District from the windows, the perfect place to rest your head after a busy day. The en-suites includes classic white wash hand basin, WC and shower keeping things fresh and simple.

A large convenient storage room with separate WC could be adapted into a kitchenette if you wished to delve into the exciting prospects at Lingwood Lodge.

Find form and function in the kitchen with plenty of storage in upper and lower wooden fronted cabinets, built in hob, oven and dishwasher as well as a hatch that opens up into the adjacent dining room. Potentially this could make a really special open plan space.

To the end of the ground floor take the flight of stairs to an impressive storage area that runs the entire length of the home. It is partially plaster boarded with a generous workbench along one wall, an ideal place for dabbling in some diy, or perhaps simply to store the Christmas decorations.

Explore upstairs

Return to the central hallway and ascend the staircase to the first floor where light floods in from the half landing window. The upstairs rooms continue the versatility revealing more exciting prospects given that the floor is divided in two with current owners' accommodation to the right and three en-suites bedrooms to the left.

The bedrooms are similar in size and shape to those downstairs with large picture windows, two of which have beautiful views of the fells, making them serene and calm and full of potential. With the en-suites in place if you did want to continue with a bed and breakfast you would have little need to renovate and could open as is.

Retrace your steps to the spacious landing, at the top of the staircase and make your way to the right into a fantastic spacious self-contained one-bedroom flat with incredible views, tranquil outdoor space and a cosy vibe throughout.

To the left stands a small office ideal for storage or working from home.

Adjacent is the master bathroom - patterned grey tiles underfoot with simple white bath and separate shower, and elegant double vanity, a room to escape to.

Across the hall is a generous bedroom, with built-in wardrobes along one wall and huge picture window capturing the views on the other.

The final rooms upstairs make for an effortless living space. A large kitchen and utility room offers an abundant area for prepping, cooking and laundry whilst the dining and living room ensures every opportunity to entertain can be taken. Open the double doors of the dining room and let the inside and outside flow as one.


This generous home benefits from three separate entrances so could easily be reconfigured internally and be made into individual flats or Airbnb accommodation. With access points into bedroom seven, through the front door and then upstairs via the utility room into the existing self-contained flat it would be easy to renovate the home.

Perhaps you are looking for the ideal plot to build your dream home, then this could be the one for you assuming the relevant planning permission is granted.

Equally you could make part of the home into an independent rental space and maintain the rest as a family home - it's potential is somewhat endless.
Garden and Grounds

The gardens at Lingwood Lodge make for a peaceful escape with terrace, private patio and a balcony as well as a lovely lawned area to the front making sure everyone is catered for.
A neatly kept lawn lies to the left of the tarmac driveway, bordered by an extensive hedge that secures privacy to the front, and is adorned with flowers, evergreens and perennials. Mature shrubs and trees dotted with the pinks of azaleas, to the right, is a haven for birds all year round and creates a tranquil feel to the grounds. The lush greenery and the low drystone walling, edging the garden and the house, creates a delightful and welcoming entrance to the home as well as numerous parking spaces for guests and owners.

The garden continues round to the side of the home with a path leading under the magnificent trees round to the separate entrance of bedroom 7.
To the front of the home stands a terrace providing beautiful views of the garden below, charmingly decorated with floral climbers and providing plenty of space for guests to relax after a busy day.

A decked balcony, to the front, is a little touch of paradise where you can admire vistas to the far-off fells and enjoy a morning cup of coffee in peace and quiet away from the busy roads of the town.

Elevated to the side of the home, catch glimpses of the lake through the trees on the secluded patio, ready for entertaining guests and alfresco dining. Garnished with potted plants and surrounded with the vibrant greens of the neighbouring hedges it feels private and tranquil, the ideal place to rest and relax with a glass of something cold in the summer months.
Discover a double garage to the right of the home ideal for storing your car as well as sporting and gardening equipment.
