Orchard Farmhouse lies 1 mile east of the hamlet of Claygate in the rolling Eskdale hills. The house
occupies an elevated position with fine views over the surrounding countryside. The nearby village of Canonbie, only a mile from the border with England, benefits from a wellregarded primary school with nursery facilities. Other local amenities include a Health Centre, Post Office/convenience store, village hall, recreation ground, church, hairdresser and hotel. The River Esk is well known for salmon and sea trout angling.

Both the M6 and A74(M) motorways are within easy reach. Around 17 miles distant, Carlisle is the nearest cultural, commercial and industrial centre for the area. The city has good rail links to London (3.5 hrs), Glasgow (1hr) via the West Coast Main Line and to Edinburgh (1hr 15m). In addition Carlisle Lake District Airport (20 miles) runs passenger flights to London-Southend, Belfast and Dublin.

Orchard Farmhouse is a traditional stone house built in approximately 1790 and subsequently extended. The handsome detached house sits in an elevated position and benefits from generous garden ground.

The house has been modernised throughout and now boasts versatile accommodation suitable for
modern day living. The renovation has included upgrading the roof and the installation of a new
heating system. The main bathroom has been renewed and a shower room has been created on
the mezzanine. The thorough refurbishment and de-decoration project has also included fitting new carpets and floor coverings all the way through.
Special attention has been paid to the detail during the project and the house now benefits from
many up to date conveniences whilst retaining its period charm.

Orchard Farmhouse has a gravel parking area to the rear. There is also a stone built building which
comprises a single garage at one end. At the other end is a workshop/studio which would make
an ideal home office.

The generous garden was originally the orchard of Orchard Farm. It is laid to lawn interspersed
with mature fruit trees including apples, plums and damsons. The Hook Sike burn runs down the
southern boundary of the garden and provides interest and diversity.
