Wend along the country lanes until you reach a sign marked Grove Farm on the left. Follow the long driveway until you approach the electrically controlled wooden gate, where the Grove Farm appears to the right, with an enormous stable-fronted barn to the left. There is ample parking for numerous vehicles to the front and side of the barn.
Limestone flooring extends underfoot and follows the open flow of the kitchen from the breakfast table around to the log-burning stove in the corner and into the bright and light morning room leading on from the kitchen.
With private parking to the side and separate access from the main house, Grove Cottage is ideal for multi-generational families; those with dependent relatives, long term visitors or returning fledglings reluctant to relinquish their new-found independence (but with a taste for home comforts).
The true pièce de resistance is the enormous barn and hayloft. Re-boarded and simply vast, this tip-top condition barn is simply brimming with potential. Whether used to store tractors and maintenance equipment, or a collection of classic cars, the extra space is always useful.
Why not consider applying for permission to develop this space into an additional dwelling? The possibilities are endless and this impressive barn is not listed. Although you may have to accommodate its oldest lodger; a barn owl who was inherited along with the house many moons ago.
Out and about
A paradoxical place in many senses, Witherslack feels utterly secluded, yet it is within a short distance of the A590 and its links to the north.
A cosy population of roughly 500 people live in the hamlets and neighbouring residential areas, all served by a local village shop.
Take a trip to the refurbished local watering hole, The Derby Arms, after a walk exploring the nearby wetland of Witherslack Mosses, a conservation area home to ospreys and other impressive wildlife.
Witherslack also has its own local primary school. Not far from Grange-Over-Sands and the wider Lake District, there is much to see and even more to do in the local vicinity; from walks up Hampsfell to games of miniature golf and afternoon tea.
