Property Details

Evoking charm and character throughout, this newly redeveloped detached stone built barn is located along a private gravelled drive in the sought after location of Skelsmergh. Ideal as a second home, those downsizing, and first time buyers or to enjoy a more peaceful way of life, The Bull Pen offers open plan living with exposed stonework and vaulted ceilings. The property has many original features retained during the sympathetic renovation and enjoys stunning views, surrounded by glorious open countryside.

Situated on the outskirts of northern Kendal, this unique property presents a rare chance to live the rural dream with an abundance of walks and rides right from the doorstep, yet the advantage to still be accessible to the market town of Kendal, which provides a variety of supermarkets, amenities, and a good choice of local schools. The Bull Pen is well placed with great transport links to the M6 Motorway and Oxenholme railway station.

Directions Leaving Kendal on the A6 Shap Road continue out of the town for approximately 3 miles before taking the right turning sign posted Kiln Croft, which comes after the turning to Mealbank and Skelsmergh church.
