Terms & Conditions

Access Statement:

External:

Cranesbill is a two storey, end terrace (terrace of three) barn conversions within a former farmstead, situated beside the quiet rural road midway from Morland to Cliburn. The former farmhouse and a detached barn conversion, both occupied as permanent residences, share the freehold area of the former farmstead with the three terraced barn conversions having rights of access and limited use over otherwise freehold private property, principally the parking area associated with the detached barn conversion, Fellside View, and the cobbled courtyard split between Fellside View and Eddy House, the former farmhouse.

 

Cranesbill has one entrance door approached from the gated gravel car park at the gable of the terrace of three barn conversions (Cranesbill / Meadowsweet / Stonecrop) on foot across the cobbled courtyard.

 

Cranesbill has the right to park one vehicle on the car park and that vehicle may be used, if necessary, to cross the cobbled courtyard to make deliveries to or collections from outside Cranesbill. Parking in the cobbled courtyard is restricted to the owners of Eddy House and Fellside View. The entrance into the cobbled courtyard between Cranesbill and Eddy House is the sole domain of the owners of Eddy House, although we are aware that they permit visitors to the three barn conversions to use this as pedestrians, however, this could be refused if they chose to do so, which the owners of Cranesbill understand has not happened. Meadowsweet and Stonecrop are holiday cottages used infrequently by their owners, families and friends i.e. not currently commercial holiday letting.

 

The cobbled courtyard and the resultant lack of level access (threshold 150mm) into the entrance door of Cranesbill means that disabled access cannot be provided.

Morland (www.visitcumbria.com/pen/morland.htm), is outside the Lake District national park but is an ideal touring base, surrounded by very pretty countryside, the renowned Eden Valley, with many signposted off road walks to enjoy, by streams where kingfishers may be seen and copses where red squirrels may be seen.
