4. Kendal, Cumbria, 4 bedrooms

This stunning four-bedroom family home is set within this highly sought-after Grade II Listed development. Holme Park is set amidst extensive grounds of 10.5 acres in a tranquil location, with wonderful panoramic views. The earliest known reference to a house at Hill Top dates back to 1663, but it is likely to have earlier origins.

5. Penrith, Cumbria, 3 bedrooms

Located amongst breathtakingly beautiful Lake District scenery, within the secluded and rather private Lowther Valley, Rawhead is an outstanding three-bedroom detached Georgian property.

7. Wigton, Cumbria, 5 bedrooms

This beautifully presented and deceptively spacious five-bedroom, Grade II Listed farmhouse is located on the fringe of Hesket Newmarket, in the Northern Fells of the Lake District National Park. With up to four reception rooms to the ground floor and five bedrooms to the first floor, the accommodation on offer can meet a variety of options for flexible family use combined with a beautifully presented dining-kitchen as the central hub of the house. The property has been sensitively renovated over the years, retaining many of its original period features.

8. Ulverston, Lancashire, 4 bedrooms

Situated in the picture-perfect rural district of Pennington, this beautiful country home enjoys an elevated position affording breath-taking panoramic views, looking down on the Hoad Monument of Ulverston, stretching out across Morecambe Bay and reaching as far as Blackpool Tower and Ingleborough Mountain on a clear day. The panoramic vista is mesmerising and ever changing on a daily basis, but that is not the only appeal to this characterful detached home.

9. Wigton, Cumbria, 3 bedrooms

This remarkable three-bedroom, Grade II Listed property is set in around one acre of land with outstanding views to Skiddaw, one of the highest English peaks. On the fringe of the Lake District National Park, Cockgate is only 18 miles from Keswick, which is at the heart of the northern Lake District.

As a whole, this lovely Grade II Listed farmhouse with hyper-fast broadband offers vastly flexible accommodation that totals at around 6,600 square feet, supporting potential for a spacious family home, private dwelling for dependent relatives or guests, and an adjoining two-bedroom cottage would make for a fantastic and surely popular holiday let.
