Description: Brackenrigg Lodge is the former Lodge house for the main house "Brackenrigg" now divided into 3 residences and found at the top of the private driveway well away from the Lodge. In recent years Brackenrigg Cottage was built and it is the owners intention to build a further house on adjoining land as their main home. (Full details on request).

The location and gardens are a true delight from the main lawn, pond and all with a profusion of mature plants, a fantastic place to relax away from the stresses of modern life. To the rear of the property is a parking area which has the space for perhaps a double garage.

The house was split into 2 units many years ago but could be quite easily re-modelled to be one property again subject to the necessary permissions etc.

Currently arranged as a large 3-4 bedroomed 2 storey house on the ground and first floors with large 40′ balcony overlooking the garden. On the lower ground floor is a good sized 2 bedroomed apartment with separate access at the side.

Location: From the centre of Bowness proceed out on the A5074 Kendal Road (opposite St Martins Church) for approximately half a mile then bearing left onto Windy Hall Road. The private driveway is almost at the top of the hill and Brackenrigg Lodge is the first property that you come to on the left.
