A delightful detached three-bedroomed Grade II ‘Listed' former village inn, dating from the early 1800's and having a good deal of charm and character.

Situated in the centre of the village, through which flows Skirwith Beck, the property has been beautifully refurbished to create three-bedroomed accommodation which retains a number of original features, giving it a distinctive atmosphere. It is possibly one of the oldest properties in the village.

Skirwith is a small and delightful Eden Valley village off the A686 Penrith/Melmerby road. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside, lying some 2 miles from the foot of Cross Fell and approximately 8 miles north-east from Penrith. The Lake District National Park is readily accessible, being some 20 minutes' drive away.
