Stocks Hill, High Harrington, Workington

Guide price

The development site enjoys an attractive setting with extensive views opening up over the village and surrounding countryside, tucked away in the older part of High Harrington, quietly situated yet literally just a few minutes from day to day needs. Harrington itself offers a number of niche shops including general stores, a post office, fruit shop and butchers with more comprehensive amenities available in Workington just three miles away.

The development site has Outline Planning Permission for 4 units, subject to approval of Reserved Matters.

Rarely do building plots become available in the area - this offers a fantastic opportunity to create a small development of individual and distinctive properties.


High Harrington lies approximately three miles south of Workington, well placed for easy access to major employment centres along the west coast yet also within easy reach of the attractions of the Lake District National Park. Stocks Hill is integral to the older part of the village - the immediate vicinity includes a wide range of properties to varying type, style and age including a number of more recently built distinctive private homes.

High Harrington includes a number of niche retails including the Pioneer butchery business, McColls general convenience store and the Post Office on Church Road. Nearby Workington offers a wide range of facilities including national supermarkets, a modern shopping centre with well known brands and a variety of social and recreational amenities.


The development site includes a wide frontage to Stocks Hill extending to approximately 0.33 hectares/0.82 acres.
