Property Details


A chance to buy a bit of country life in the Lake District. A fantastic 5 bedroomed detached farmhouse, just over 22 acres of land including part of the river Gilpin, 2 very large modern barns and detached 2 bedroomed annexe bungalow all in the heart of the country and yet only a short drive to civilisation.

  • 5 bedroom farmhouse and 2 bedroom bungalow annexe
  • Approx 22 acres of land
  • 2 large modern barns

Description: Set away from the busy roads, with 22 acres of land Low Shepherd Yeat enjoys a peaceful location yet sits in close proximity to both Kendal and Windermere. This property features a 5 bedroomed farm house, refurbished over the years to provide a contemporary feel yet authentic appearance, with exposed beams and deep window sills. The farmhouse also enjoys 2 ensuite shower rooms with a further 2 bathrooms. Complete with an Aga in the kitchen.

Low Shepherd Yeat Farm is also home to a detached 2 bedroomed bungalow, constructed in 2011. Both properties currently serve as one holiday let and could prove to be a great investment.

22 Acres of land and two large, high quality insulated agricultural buildings also included, giving someone the chance to purchase their own stretch of the River Gilpin. Further details on request.

Location: Located away from the busyness of the Lake District towns and villages, Low Shepherd Yeat enjoys a peaceful, quiet location sat amongst green fields and farm land, a true countryside retreat. Despite this, the property is only 15 minutes from Kendal and Windermere via car, and is walking distance from Crosthwaite and Winster. From Windermere, head up the Crook Road towards Kendal, continue until you see St Catherines Church and take the next right onto Back Lane. Follow the road for 1.1 Miles and Shepherd Yeat will be on the right hand side.

Or alternatively the property can be found from Crosthwaite which is a slightly longer approach but a much better lane. On entering Crosthwaite from the Lyth Valley Toad (A5074, which links to the A590 and easy access to the M6) go over the small bridge and take the first left after approx. 500 yards or so. Continue along this road for 1.9 miles until the ‘T’ junction and the driveway for the farm is directly opposite.

Sat Nav is not the best option – please use Google Maps & add in the full address to be able to locate the farm.
