Property Details

Tyr Celyn, meaning "Holly House", is a deceptively spacious 5 bedroom home in a plot of approximately one acre. Situated in a beautiful and peaceful part of Arnside, and with access to Arnside Knott, the beach, and surrounding woodland, Tyr Celyn provides a unique opportunity to acquire a well-planned family home in a delightful setting. The accommodation is predominantly to the ground floor, with one of the bedrooms being on the first floor. Extensive yet low-maintenance, well tended gardens run to the front and rear of the property, with further private woodland and wildlife areas providing a haven for a variety of flora and fauna.

The current vendors have carefully and creatively extended this superb home which now benefits from 2 excellent reception rooms, a large dining kitchen, five double bedrooms one of which is currently used as a playroom. This beautiful home, with its versatile layout, will prove popular with a wide range of buyers. It is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is adjacent to Arnside Knott, and other National Trust land. The area is a unique haven for birds and wildlife which can often be observed from the house.

Arnside is a welcoming South Lakeland seaside village with a range of local amenities including a post office, GP and dental surgeries, cafes, pubs and shops. There are excellent road and rail links.

The Gardens Approached via a private lane, the gravel driveway leads to a double length garage up one side of the front garden and allows for plenty of parking. The gardens at Tyr Celyn are a true haven, lovingly created by the current vendors, to provide an oasis for wildlife and a delight for all who visit. Care has been taken to ensure that the gardens are low maintenance without losing their aesthetic appeal. The front garden is partly laid to lawn with a mature shrubbery, beautiful blossoming trees, mature oaks, stone-paved pathways and patio areas, a pond, and a wildflower lawn.

To the rear, the terraced garden has a lawn and patio areas complemented by well-planted flowerbeds. There is a wildlife pond with a small limestone waterfall. A stone-paved orchard includes apple, plum, cherry and greengage trees, and there is a greenhouse with wall-trained peach trees. Beyond the garden there is an area of unspoilt woodland with native wild daffodils, a child’s summerhouse, a folly, and two good timber sheds. Across the access lane at the front, Tyr Celyn owns another area of natural woodland which has been managed to encourage an abundance of the wildlife species of the AONB. There is also a soft-fruit area.
