Holiday Letting Opportunity
If you were to purchase this property for holiday letting, The Good Life Cottage Company, have appraised the cottage and has suggested an estimated gross annual income of £20,600 per annum on 40 weeks let, providing a great return on investment.
The fittings and contents can remain in the property: they are negotiable separately with the Vendor. The high standard of the fittings and contents would mean that the property would also be ideal for those looking for an investment property or a residential purchase, as it is ready to move in and would only require a personal touch.
The vendors have had plans drawn up to create a second bedroom with further shower room.
From Ambleside, head west on the A593 towards Coniston/Hawkshead. Approximately one mile, turn left to cross Brathay Bridge on to the B5286 Hawkshead. Continue along the road until you reach the village of Outgate. Directly opposite The Outgate Inn, turn right and Kirkstone Cottage is approximately 100 meters on the right.
