SOLD: Wreay Meadow £49,000 Freehold

  • Cumwhinton, Carlisle, Cumbria
  • nearly 3 ½ acres
  • Cumbria


Located within easy reach of the M6 Wreay Meadow is a lush pasture with several grass and wildflower species. The grazing has been well maintained and is very productive with annual cuts and the attentions of a local rare breed flock.

Generally quite level, the land slopes gently downwards towards the north and is relatively weed free. The western boundary is a high growing hedge line and provides a wind shelter belt of damson, hawthorn and elm. A line of majestic oaks stand on the northern boundary and gives an impressive backdrop to the meadow.

Secure entry is via a gate off a minor road, onto a good hard standing and from here through another gate into the meadow.

Wreay Meadow would be eminently suitable as equestrian or general livestock grazing. Reliable drinking water in the field could easily be facilitated with provision of a bowser or an IBC (Intermediate Bulk Container).

Nearby is the charming village of Cumwhinton, originally named Cumquinton from the Celtic for valley of a man named Quinton. Saint Mary's Church Wreay, from which the meadow takes its name, is unusual as it is a Victorian creation, incorporating much detailed carving celebrating God’s work in nature.

The purchasers of the meadow will be asked to enter into a covenant to ensure the quiet and peaceful enjoyment of adjoining woodlands and meadows.
