Description Lindisfarne was built in 1881 and is full of character. It is a substantial and traditional stone built and slated detached Lakeland property providing well presented guest house accommodation. Currently arranged with the ‘main house’ having 4 letting bedrooms ((3 en suite) and 1 with private shower room, on a bed and breakfast basis with 2 bedroomed owners accommodation. At the rear the property is a holiday letting unit, arranged as a 1 bedroomed self-catering cottage.

Modern fire precautions are installed together with gas central heating and double glazing. This is a succesful business which has operated for 17 years by the present owners but has been a guest house since the 1960’s and does have the potential to increase business by opening all year round as the owners only trade from April to October each year. The property has just had the benefit of new carpets in the dining room, hallway, 2 landings and 2 staircases. It has also had 2 new sign posts.

Location Lindisfarne occupies an excellent corner site at the junction of Princes Road and Sunny Bank Road, approximately mid-way between Windermere and Bowness.
