This is a large, beautifully restored late 17th century farmhouse which has been extended into adjoining barns with wonderful exposed beams and vaulted ceilings.

The farmhouse itself dates back to the late 17th century and retains many charming and original features including exposed beams, stone fire surrounds, internal stone door surround and many more period features. Internally it is in immaculate order and has been completed to an exacting standard with high quality finishes and stylish decor.   Throughout the home there are bespoke fitted wardrobes, shelving and storage spaces, all produced  by locally renowned firm, Thwaite Holme.  Each window throughout the property is blessed with spectacular views across its beautiful grounds!

Attached Barn

Three Bay Open Garage


Externally approached down a private driveway to a turning circle which has ample parking for a number of vehicles and a detached 3 garage. There is an attached barn which is perfect for storage and could have further development potential, subject to planning consents. The gardens extends to 8 acres and have been developed in two phases: the first was from 1992 to 2005; the second from 2006 to the present time. The age of trees reflects this: there are mature Ash, Sycamore, Beech and Hawthorn that date back to when Deer Rudding was a farm. Then from 1992 a large number of Silver Birch, Larch, Sorbus, Oak and Alder were planted on the western and northern boundaries, these provide shelter. From 2006 more trees were added, including Bird Cherry, Amelanchier, Birch, Red Oak, Metasequoia, Sequoia Giganteum, Acer and Golden Alder. The outer areas support wildlife: areas of meadow grass provide cover for small mammals; wood heaps encourage insects. There is a ruined farmhouse, outbuildings and cobbled yard incorporated within the garden, adjacent to this is a large area of Buddleias which encourage butterflies and an area of juniper. These are all grown on the material taken from the ruined building which had collapsed in on itself. Descending from the ruins and cobbled yard there is a rockery which was designed to take advantage of the sloping ground and a sunny aspect. In the lower garden there is extensive dry stone walling which was designed and built by Steve Allen, a Cumbrian champion stone waller. The walls provide homes for small mammals and insects. They also help the garden sit in the landscape. In the lower garden near the house there are mixed borders of shrubs, bulbs and perennials, the planting is informal. A green lane runs along the southern boundary and leads to the river Caldew. Adjacent to the river is an area of meadow grass with mown paths to enable movement through it, there are naturalised bulbs, mainly Daffodils and some Camassia.
