It sits on a generous plot with beautiful gardens, great views and ample parking, just a short walk from the babbling, clear waters of the River Duddon. The Low Farm has a beautiful south-facing cottage garden to the rear, a further garden with pond to the front, and stunning far reaching views over the river and surrounding fells. There is ample outdoor seating, picnic tables and BBQ area (BBQ not provided). The property has a natural water supply from a spring, that is filtered and treated in accordance with current regulations.
The spectacular scenery of the unspoiled Duddon Valley made it a favourite location of both William Wordsworth and Alfred Wainwright, both of whom wrote extensively about this beautiful part of the Lake District. Whilst in an ideal location to access the central and southern lakes and all the amenities on offer, the pretty village of Ulpha is an oasis of peace and quiet in an area still dominated by traditional fell farming. It is situated 4 miles north of Broughton-in-Furness and is a popular destination for walkers, cyclists, anglers, nature lovers and those just looking to rest, relax, breathe fresh air and take in the sights. The village of Ulpha has a small shop/post office and the local pub is 1½ miles away in neighbouring Seathwaite. Broughton Mills, 4 miles, has a pub serving great food and local beers, and there are numerous other hostelries in nearby Broughton-in-Furness and Eskdale.
The Stepping Stones and Ulpha Bridge are popular spots for picnicking or just having fun by the river. There is great fishing in the area, Wasdale and Eskdale are a short drive away and for those looking for a bigger challenge Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England, and The Old Man of Coniston are within easy reach. If it’s a day at the beach you’re looking for there is a lovely coastline and beaches at Haverigg, Silecroft and St Bees. There are many tourist attractions in the area, including Muncaster Castle and the Ravenglas and Eskdale Railway. Beach 14 miles. Shop ¾ mile, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.
