Garths, Marthwaite, near Sedbergh is Grade II listed 18th Century farmhouse. . . . And it’s our new home!
Here is some of the blurb from the sales brochure:
“The four bedroom house is south facing and was part of a working Dales farm until the mid 1990’s. Private and sheltered along its own entrance lane off the main road it is surrounded by 8 acres of fields and river side meadow and an extensive range of outbuildings including a stone built stable, covered vehicle store and a typical bank barn also dating from the 1700’s with a large 19th century addition. As well as providing a very comfortable home the land and buildings allow for those wanting space for horses, to create a small holding or just to enjoy the peace and beauty of this picturesque corner of the Dales.
“Once in Yorkshire and now in Cumbria the western field to Garths borders the River Lune and the Dales Way long distance path runs along the river bank. From the doorstep there are plenty of country and hill walks to enjoy. The historic market town of Sedbergh is only 2 miles and is noted for its quaint old streets, well regarded public school and its variety of individual shops and traders. To the west, 5 minutes drive brings you to the M6 junction 37 and a further ten minutes to the larger town of Kendal and west coast mainline station at Oxenholme.”
