SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION The property is conveniently placed with access via a track off the A7 which connects Carlisle and the M6 at junction 44 with Longtown and Edinburgh. The accessible rural setting is very pleasant and the property enjoys open views. There is good provision for access for travel in all directions including our region's areas of natural and historic interest i.e. the Eden Valley, the Solway Coast and Lake District. The property is also conveniently placed for access to Scotland and The Borders. There is excellent amenity available at Kingstown which is just over 2 miles distance and a superb range of wider amenities in central Carlisle.  

Forget Me Not Cottage is a superb package comprising a generously proportioned bungalow with double garage and the benefit of an in-out drive and generous site. The 2.5 acre paddock adjoins and there is separate access to a brick built three stall stable block with turn-out area.  

The accommodation is well appointed and includes three ensuite bedrooms and an additional study or fourth bedroom all of which have fitted furniture by Sharps. The living space works particularly well and includes a generous sitting room which opens into a large garden room. The aspect is westerly and there is plenty of good natural light and open views. The dining room has French doors out to the west and onto a generous patio. The breakfast kitchen has a range of fitted units and features an Aga cooker.  

The package on offer is rather special so we would advise an early viewing, particularly for those looking for a home for smallholding or equestrian use.
