Lake District development opportunity in Cleator, Cumbria

Barns and building plots for sale in Cleator, Cumbria

A rare opportunity to develop a number of barns and land in Cleator close to the Lake District National Park and near the Cumbrian towns of Whitehaven and Frizington

This site offers you a chance to create your ideal barn conversion home less than one mile from the western edge of the Lake District, and finance the development with the sale of four building plots on the site.

Included in this development opportunity:

• Two large sandstone barns (Class Q permitted development eligible)
• Two large lean to buildings (Class Q permitted development eligible)
• Outline permission for seven executive detached houses (would reduce to four if the barn was restored)

The development

Outline planning permission has already been granted to develop the whole site with seven detached homes. If all seven were built the barns would be demolished which would be a shame as these huge sandstone barns are at least 200 years old. Traditional buildings such as these are perfect for anybody keen to build a unique home in a fantastic setting so close to the Lake District.

Plots 1, 2 and 3 on the attached site plan represent the area currently covered by the barn if the barn is kept these plots do not get built upon. This still leaves plots 4, 5, 6 and 7 available to develop or sell. Monies from the sale of these plots would easily finance a fantastic barn conversion.


Set in more than one acre of land.

Access and services

The site benefits from access / egress onto an A road (as shown in picture 6).

Existing electricity, water and drainage provision on site.


Fabulous West Lake District location (CA23 3DT)
