Location/Description: Dating back to mid 1750, Fern Cottage forms part of an original village Farmhouse and is located discretely in the heart of this popular village which lies within the Lake District National Park.

A much loved family home by the current vendor for over 47 years the property feels warm and welcoming and retains a wealth of charm and period features. Internally the rooms are generous and well arranged, externally there is an abundance of space for the keen gardener and the private parking is no less impressive.

(Newton-in-Cartmel) or High Newton is a small village off the A590 towards the edge of the Lake District National Park. The village was by-passed in 2008 relieving it from the pressures of traffic and enabling its return to a quieter pace of life at the head of the Cartmel Valley. Situated on the edge of the National Park, about 2½ miles from the foot of Windermere at Newby Bridge and with the M6 some 15 minutes easy drive away. The village is on a bus route and is very convenient for local services and for all the attractions the Lake District has to offer.

If approaching from Grange take the first left off the A590 by-pass, at the ‘T’ Junction turn right and then second left into the village. Proceed through Low Newton and as you enter High Newton take the 1st left. Fern Cottage is a short way along the right hand side.
