Full property description

Situated at the end of a private track shared only with the owner of neighbouring farm buildings, Gilpin Farm House and Cottage each have its own spectacular views across open countryside towards Whitbarrow Scar, Levens Village, Scout Scar and the Lakeland Fells. The properties are pleasantly located on the fringe of Levens village where there is a thriving community, a village store, part time Post Office, Pub/Resaturant, church and well regarded Primary School. The location has excellent road links to the M6 and offers easy access to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.
