Full description:
Horrockwood presents a rare opportunity to acquire a substantial and impressive Lakeland family house within the Lake District National Park. The house is set in superb garden grounds which extend to approximately 3.52 acres, situated close to the north-west shore of Ullswater in the desirable village of Watermillock, and is some 3 miles from Pooley Bridge.
The present owners have fully restored the house, whilst preserving many original features, creating a highly attractive family home. The accommodation comprises: Four reception rooms, kitchen/breakfast room, utility/pantry, 5 bedrooms (2 with en suite facilities) and a family bathroom.

A door from the kitchen opens out to a charming cobbled courtyard. A small detached stone outbuilding contains an outside WC. There is an attractive lean-to outbuilding, with open entrance to the side.

Also located within the cobbled yard is a semi-derelict detached cottage. This charming stone and slate building consists of four rooms and enjoys a lovely outlook over farmland to the Fells at the rear. This cottage could be used for a multitude of purposes such as a holiday let, granny annexe or guest accommodation.
Detached from both the house and cottage, surrounded on three sides by the enclosed rear garden, is a highly attractive and extremely substantial stone and slate barn, measuring approximately 90 feet x 20 feet, 6 inches, and contains a byre with part boarded loft above and a large barn with raised storage area. Beneath the raised section of the barn and with separate entrances from the lower ground level are two further byres or loose boxes, divided by timber partition and feeding racks.
The gardens are superb and include an orchard with a number of fruit trees, bushes and wild flower area. The grounds are predominantly laid to lawn with the rear garden enjoying views to Helvellyn and Little Mell, and there is an attractive area of woodland. In total the grounds extend to approximately 3.52 acres.
