WHAT AN OPPORTUNITY WE HAVE FOR YOU HERE! Whether you re an investor looking to generate income from the holiday industry, a potential landlord looking to let property on an AST, or someone looking to create a gorgeous home with bags of character, then this will definitely be of interest to you!

The development sits in a courtyard setting, just off the centre of Brigham with good access to the A66 to Cockermouth and the Lake District and the west coast towns and industries. It is made up of two traditional cottages, a more modern apartment, a games room and outbuildings, all of which have until recently been used as a successful holiday let business. Each property has two bedrooms and an open plan lounge/dining area/kitchen, each has parking and a small patio along with heating and double glazing. The storage areas are useful and the games room is a great asset. Each property has bags of charm and character including beams, vaulted ceilings, natural wood or slate flag floors, stone features, wood burning stoves etc, but there is also much room for upgrading and refurbishing to bring up to the standards expected today.
