Two Cumbrian farmhouses up for auction

I got a lovely email from regular reader Eleanor. Lovely because she helped fill in missing details on a property I'd featured, and doubly lovely because she also sent me these two Cumbrian beauties.
They're both up for auction on April 7th. I'll start with the easy (ish) one.
Hall Hills is a detached former farmhouse that's been empty for some time.

The agent's details don't say anything about the size of the place, other than it has three-bedrooms.
And, I'm not entirely certain what use this room is intended for:

It's neighbouring property is also up for auction - the two being offered both separately and as one, combined lot. However that farmhouse needs rather more "renovation":

It does however come with two barns, and planning permission to convert them into homes.
The properties are in a fairly remote rural location (as the pictures show), about seven miles from Brampton and 13 from Carlisle.

In the picture above, Hall Hills is the house to the left and the derelict farmhouse is to the right - beyond the outbuildings.
What isn't clear from any of the agent's details is what land either or both properties come with and - my particular concern - access rights to the properties through the surrounding farmland.
Both properties have a guide price of £125k +
More on both properties, plus more pictures and the rather convoluted bidding process here and here. Hall Hills is also on Rightmove here.

I mentioned that Eleanor's email also included information about a previous property I'd featured - Warcop House, also in Cumbria. I've added the extra bit to the bottom of that post, here.
