The train station in the village links to the Oxenholme station, 4 miles, and the West Coast main line rail service providing access to London in 2 ½ hours with direct links to Manchester Airport and for road users, Junction 36 of the M6 is less than a 15 minute drive.

Little Whitefoot has over the last five years undergone some upgrading which has been sympathetically done to ensure the charm and character of the property remains. The cottage has been extended to create a large family kitchen with utility area and a shower room and upstairs a master bedroom suite. Originally the cottage formed part of a large private estate built in 1939 and then later divided up into single dwellings 1949. The property is surrounded by open countryside with views up to Potter Fell and The Howgills. Private gardens and lawns surrounded with a small picket fence, pretty stone built raised beds and a sweeping driveway provides parking for several vehicles, completing the package and making this a very appealing home.
Stone built steps finished with Lakeland slate lead down into the entrance hall with a wooden floor. Through into an open plan living room with a snug area. The living room enjoys good proportions and is flooded with natural light from the triple aspect. A wood burning stove and a built in log store set into central chimney gives the room a real focal point and a cosy feel on the colder days. The living room flows effortlessly through to a family kitchen/diner. The dining area has space for a table and chairs and has double doors leading out on to a small lawned area which is the perfect spot to enjoy a morning coffee whilst enjoying the views over towards the River Kent and the HowgilL fells in the distance. The kitchen is beautifully finished with high gloss poggenpohi units which are complimented with white granite work tops. Modern Gaggenau integral appliances which include a large double wine fridge, ice machine, plate warmer, an induction hob with extractor fan above, a large oven, microwave grill and fridge freezer. There is also a double sink with an instant boiling water tap. A central island with an attractive granite work top which offers extra storage completes the look of this stunning kitchen. The utility room is off the kitchen and has a good range of wooden base units, a large window which over looks the entrance steps to the property, there is also rear access door from this room. A practical shower room which is fully tiled with a slate floor which is accessed from the utility room perfect for when you have been working out in the garden. Stairs from the living room lead up to three double rooms and a small single room which would lend itself perfectly as a study/home office area. The master suite is a large light and airy room with velux windows and two large windows offering a dual aspect. A dressing room with a velux window and an en-suite which is deceptively spacious with a tiled walk in double shower cubical with a rain shower. A large house bathroom with WC, wash hand basin and the original freestanding bath which has been beautifully restored.
The property is surrounded by fields and countryside and has a private sunny lawned area to the side this tranquil haven is the ideal spot from which to take in the beautiful fell views. The driveway is a large area which is partly walled by the original wall garden of the house. There is an old Victorian greenhouse which has the benefit of electric and water and has the potential to be developed further. Recently built stone steps and raised flower beds that are bursting with summer flowers at the front of the property give the cottage a charming look but is designed so that you can take on as much or as little gardening tasks as required so it is truly perfect for those with busy lives.
