Three farmhouses with barns thrown in

Blimey, I've got such a lot of houses waiting on my 'to post' list. Not least because you've been busy sending me emails with the most gorgeous 'wrecks', while I've been relaxing on a sunny balcony* overlooking Tuscan hills.
Let's start with three Cumbrian farmhouses with extra buildings.
First the gorgeous property above and below, at Kirklinton, Hethersgill, five miles from Carlisle.
Hall Hills farmhouse has three bedrooms, study and bathroom upstairs; two reception, kitchen, dining room and study downstairs, plus a substantial basement/cellar.

There are original fireplaces in most rooms and lots of period details. But what makes this place particularly special is the shedload of extra buildings.
Outside is a farmyard surrounded by farm buildings and barn. There's also a rather lovely - but structurally unsound - second house:

The main house, the farmhouse, is to the left. Unsound house to right
Most of the extra buildings may prove too costly to renovate, and the agent's details suggest demolition and rebuild (the barn comes with planning permission to convert - hence the price).
There's an acre of land and quite stunning views over the surrounding countryside.

Hall Hills in on the market through PFK with a guide price of £325k. Details and more pictures here and on Zoopla here.
The five-bedroom farmhouse below, at Great Urswick, comes with gardens rather than land but it does have a rather more usable barn.

The 18th century house has some nice original details - such as a stone pantry - and a pretty walled garden (well, I see pretty...)

There are five bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, two reception rooms, kitchen and utility downstairs.

Outside is a single storey detached barn, and a more interesting two-storey attached stone-floored garage/barn, both with electricity connected.

On the market at £360k through Corrie and Co. Details and more pictures here and here.
Finally, the handsome farmhouse below, at Newtown, about 25 miles from Carlisle, also comes with a range of buildings, most attached to the main farmhouse and surrounding the courtyard.

The farmhouse itself has four bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, three reception rooms, store and kitchen downstairs and then an odd bit with an extra first-floor living room accessed from the kitchen.

Outside is a gated driveway leading to the courtyard, a gaggle of farm buildings, barn and shed, plus two acres of land including a paddock.

The whole lot is on the market with a guide price of £310k, through H&H King. Details and more pictures here and here.

*Tuscany is sort-of like Cumbria...
