The accommodation is light and bright benefitting from an orientation that faces northwest to the rear and southeast to the front.

 

Newly built, No.1 is ready to move straight into and offers light and spacious accommodation with a high specification of fixtures, fittings and integral Caple appliances. Kitchen and utility room fittings have been supplied by local and well regarded company Webbs of Kendal and the granite worktops came from stonemasons Gordon Greaves Slate Ltd in Windermere. Internal doors have a contemporary light oak finish and laminate flooring and carpets are laid throughout giving you a turn-key solution.

Built with energy efficiency in mind, there is an air source Mitsubishi boiler providing underfloor heating throughout, twenty solar panels and double glazing. The solar panels are set up to feed back into the National Grid but if you wished to feed electricity back to the property, it would be possible for buyers to add batteries and do so.

Great care has been taken to achieve a traditional external appearance to the new builds with slated roofs, stone clad elevations, slate cills, dark grey PVCu windows, slate paving in the covered porch area, stone built rear boundary walls and slate upstands around the rainwater gullies. Set in a generous plot there is excellent parking provision and for ease of upkeep, an area laid with slate chippings for garden furniture and pots.

 

Witherslack is an attractive village benefiting from great accessibility onto the road network.

Situated in the southern end of the county, Witherslack lies on the north eastern side of Morecambe Bay and is a small scattered village with four distinct areas; Townend, Mill Side, Beck Head and the school/church. Dubs Cottages is located in Townend which is traditionally considered the centre of the village and contains the local pub and shop.

Within easy walking distance, The Derby Arms public house offers a choice of real ales and good food. The Community Shop is also a short walk from the cottage, set up in 2006 and for the lucky village residents sells a wide range of groceries, fresh and frozen local produce as well as homemade cakes, it’s also possible to order items from shops in Grange-over-Sands (Higginsons Butchers, Grange Bakery and Aireys) and arrange your dry cleaning. A wider range of shops and amenities are to be found in the nearby larger towns of Grange over Sands (4.7 miles) and Kendal (9.1 miles).

The village borders the prominent hill of Whitbarrow (also known as Whitbarrow Scar) designated a biological Site of Special Scientific Interest and National Nature Reserve (NNR). The NNR is owned and managed by the Forestry Commission, Lake District National Park Authority and the Cumbria Wildlife Trust. Whitbarrow is a landmark feature along the A590 with its steep limestone cliffs and is a mixture of woodland, grassland and limestone pavement.

The summit of Whitbarrow Scar is known as Lord's Seat and a 6.5 mile (10.5 km) walk to here from Witherslack, returning along the valley to the west, forms a chapter in The Outlying Fells of Lakeland by Alfred Wainwright. He describes it as "the most beautiful (walk) in this book; beautiful it is every step of the way. ... All is fair to the eye on Whitbarrow."

There’s a primary school in the village, Dean Barwick School which lies near to St. Paul's church, the only place of worship in the village.

Located just off the A590 it’s a great location for anyone working locally and looking for a semi rural setting without being isolated. Access to the M6 is at J36 and the nearest station on the west coast railway line is at Oxenholme (8.8 miles distant) with a station at Grange over Sands (4.1 miles) on the branch line between Carnforth and Barrow.
