Additional Information: The site is located on the edge of Melmerby village and is in the North Pennines AONB. Planning permission for non-residents of the village on this scale is very difficult to achieve. The outline plan includes details of layout and massing which has passed through committee. The plan consists of two desirable 3 bed homes with large gardens looking onto the Pennine fells, 4 large 2 bed flats and 2 large 3 bed cottages with views to the Lake District. All of which centre around a courtyard echoing nearby traditional farmsteads. Utilities such as waste/fresh water and electricity all run under the field and are easily accessible. The site itself is flat and not prone to flooding. Various ecological and environmental surveys have been carried out at the request of the council and all have passed successfully. The plan has received no objections for any neighbours or residents of the village, more details can be found on Eden District Councils planning website, application number 14/0808. Melmerby itself boasts an organic bakery/restaurant, village shop/cafe, two shops and a large pub that is currently being refurbished. It is 10 miles from Penrith and the M6 making it a well connected village yet still a quite rural location.

Directions: 10 miles east of Penrith (M6).
