Overlooking the Derwent Valley and beyond, the property is situated on the Coast to Coast cycle path and is currently in operation as Lakeland Photographic Holidays, the leading residential photographic centre of its kind in the country.
The original house, built in 1897, has had extensions to both sides and to the exterior to facilitate further parking. There are nine en-suite bedrooms and a three-bedroom owners’ accommodation.
Purchase of the guest house also includes six acres of private woodland located on the hillside above Braithwaite, within the Lake District National Park and part of the UNESCO World Heritage site.
Tom O’Malley at Christie & Co’s Manchester office said: “Fern Howe is ideally suited to a number of business possibilities, whether someone wants to continue it as a photographic centre, take advantage of its location on the Coast to Coast cycle path and become a cycle centre, or run it as lifestyle business as a guest house.”
The freehold of Fern Howe is on the market at an asking price of £795,000.
