The property

Tucked away in the quaint seaside village of St. Bees, just a short distance from the beach, lies this Stunning Grade II Listed farmhouse cottage, dating back to the 17th Century, Abbey Farm House. The property has been renovated, whilst retaining all-natural character and charming, period features complementing contemporary luxuries. Boasting enough room for up to sixteen guests, this magnificent home is the perfect retreat for families and friends looking to spend some quality time together while exploring the Cumbria coastline and Lake District National Park. Upon arrival, there are six off-road parking spaces to greet you, before stepping to the entrance hall leading to the games room, where you can challenge each other to a game of pool and while away the hours on a rainy day. Allow the designated chef to relish in the farmhouse style kitchen, appointed with a wonderful selection of amenities including a range cooker with 7-ring gas hob and AGA cooker, ideal for rustling up hearty feasts. Gather round the dining table or climb the staircase to reach the first-floor sitting room, home to an additional dining area which is perfect for hosting family mealtimes. In this room there is also a projector and three sofas, perfect for enjoying movie nights. The bedrooms at this St. Bees are charming, set over three floors and offering a variety of sleeping types, they are sure to satisfy all party types. On the ground-floor is a spacious king-size room with en-suite shower, along with an unusual sitting area with open fire, offering a private setup away from the group, while there is also a downstairs suite providing a double bed sofa bed and electric fire, perfect for a family to occupy. Venture to the first floor and discover more, offering a king-size with bed, a double and twin, served by two bathrooms, each with luxurious roll-top baths and shower room, so you can decide how best to prepare for the day. The second floor comprises a similar arrangement, including a kingside, double, and twin again, along with a shower room. The excellence of this property continues outside, where you’ll find an enclosed courtyard with table and chairs, encouraging alfresco dining on a balmy evening, with views overlooking the church and even the coast on a clear day, with the added indulgence of a hot tub. When you’re ready to tear yourself away from this splendid base, there’s plenty of amenities to enjoy with St. Bees, including a convenience store, Hartleys Beach shop and several local pubs where the chef can enjoy a well-earned night off. Stroll down to the coast and enjoy sunny days on the St. Bees beachfront, offering a beautiful stretch of sand when the tide is out, along with a huge play area where the children can safely explore. Join the famous Coast to Coast Walk, a scenic route that begins at St. Bees Head and crosses the breadth of the North of England, and ends in Robin Hood’s Bay, passing through the varied terrain of the Lake District and rolling through the heather-clad North York Moors. For days out, visit the Georgian town of Whitehaven, home to an exciting array of heritage waiting to be discovered, or lace up your walking boots and tackle the Lake District National Park, home to the imposing Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. With outdoor opportunities in abundance, Abbey Farm House is sure to provide an unforgettable break, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £1000.

About the location

ST BEES

Whitehaven 5 miles.

St. Bees is an historic seaside village on the west coast of Cumbria with a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a shop, post office and old traditional pubs. It's an ideal base for exploring the western Lake District and Cumbrian coast, and is the start of the famous Wainwright coast to coast walk. St. Bees Head is the only major sea cliff between Wales and Scotland and is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria. There is a fine beach and many wonderful walks are available along the clifftops, which are also home to one of England’s most important seabird colonies. There is also a nine-hole golf course in the village. Nearby Whitehaven, an elegant Georgian port, and the spectacular western Lakes, are more than worthy of a visit. Muncaster Castle is 8 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway. Cockermouth, the birth place of Wordsworth, and Keswick on Derwentwater are also within easy driving distance.
