On higher ground

In light of the floods in Cumbria and Lancashire, buyers will seek out properties on higher ground there – £1.7 million High Fellside Hall provides one such option


Scenes of evacuations and devastation in Cumbria and Lancashire in recent days have provided scant illustration of the perils of living on flood plains and now buyers in those areas will be more cautious in their property choices. One example of a small estate there that will has escaped the impact of this thankfully rare occurence – that is situated on the upper slopes of the valley of the River Lune – is High Fellside Hall and it is currently for sale for £1,700,000 as a whole.

Also available in three lots, the 102.5-acre property varies in height from 100 metres to 200 metres above sea level and is classified as Grade 3 and Grade 4 under the MAFF Provisional Agricultural Land Classification. It comes with grazing rights for 150 ewes and 30 followers on the adjoining common but what is most impressive is a 7,382 square foot new-build house constructed in 2008 and split across three floors.


The property is set in idyllic if somewhat exposed countryside on the upper slopes of the Lune Valley
Despite being a new build house High Fellside Hall has a number of character features
The kitchen is dominated by a country essential – A full-sized AGA
This swimming pool would not look out of place in a Belgravia sub-basement as it does here
The first of two barns for conversion is situated across the lane from the main house
A second barn is set a short distance from the main property

Featuring 4 reception rooms, 5 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, High Fellside Hall also comes with a swimming pool that would not look out of place in a sub-basement in Belgravia and two large barns that come with planning permission for conversion. The property is for sale through Savills incorporating Smiths Gore.

    • The swimming pool could have been blended into the hillside a little more tastefully in my humble opinion.

    • The outside of the house looks good, but previous owners seem to have ruined the inside of the building. It now looks more like a care home inside.

    • Loads of potential for someone with bright ideas and energy.......

      Easy to criticise; but easier to improve upon
