A Cumbrian dairy farm with tourist potential has come on the market priced at £1,888,000.

Whitbarrow Farm, near Penrith, is a ring-fenced, 200 acre, dairy farm which provides an opportunity to run both a highly successful dairy and tourism enterprise.

Thomas Armstrong, H&H Land & Estates Director, said: “This is a well maintained productive modern dairy farm which benefits from both an extensive dairy complex and additional potential income streams from tourism.

"Millions of people visit the Lake District each year and with the current impact of Covid-19, I would expect that the camping pods, when completed will be in high demand.

Ring- fenced farms of this quality in Cumbria continue to be sought after and as Whitbarrow, has such extensive facilities, is so easily accessible, and ready to move into, we would anticipate there being good levels of interest,” said Mr Armstrong.

Whitbarrow’s dairy complex, includes, four DeLaval VMS Milking Robots, installed in 2008 and updated to the latest software in 2016.

A bulk tank room contains a 16,000 litre DeLaval bulk tank. The adjoining buildings contain a total of 240 cubicles with slatted floors and automatic scrapers.
