Woodside Farm is superbly situated just outside the market town of Cockermouth, and close to both Wigton and Carlisle, all of which have excellent local amenities. The immediate surroundings and setting is typical for the area and comprises gently rolling fields interspersed with small woodlands framed by peaks of the Lake District in the distance. There are good transport connections, with Carlisle and Penrith to the east both on the West Coast mainline. From Penrith some services to Manchester take under 1 hour 45 minutes and London Euston can take less than 3 hours 30 minutes. The A66 trunk road lies 4 miles to the east at Cockermouth and links direct to the M6 motorway at Penrith.
Woodside Farm is an excellent and well equipped dairy unit with a substantial farmhouse and 338.7 acres of Grade 3 soils. The farm has historically carried a productive dairy herd, only recently has the current owner left dairying and run the farm as a mixed unit with cattle and sheep running over the grassland supported by cereal cropping on some of the land.
The farmstead sits in the centre the holding, with the bulk of land surrounding in a ring fence divided by the farm drive which gives access to the majority of the fields. In addition to the main block of farmland there are four off lying parcels of land offered as separate lots.
