Although a little off the beaten track, some 4 miles out of Workington, it's worth the effort. If you've ever wanted to know how it feels to live like a millionaire, this is the place to try.
Be warned, SatNav places this plot on the left of the road, but it's on the right coming out of Workington. Look for the large double gates.
Don't be put off by the grounds, which are still under development. Pass the stable block, with its own home and office building, and you come to the dwelling.
As soon as you walk in, you're aware of the care and expense from the owners, with gleaming floortiles over the expansive hallway, leading to a sweeping staircase to the bedrooms.
The owner and host, George, is a very amiable and informative host, who might even show you the private areas of the house, with its film-star kitchen and beautiful conservatory / orangery.
The bedrooms aren't numbered, but ours was spacious and immaculate, with a large en-suite with spa bath and powerful shower. Flat-screen Samsung TV and huge wardrobe available.
The versatile George presented an excellent breakfast, with a full range of items, including a first-class black pudding. He was always onhand to top up the tea and toast, and finally insisted on carrying our overnight bag to the car, despite the wild weather.
Just a flying visit from us, but we could definitely be tempted for a longer visit in the future.
