An attractive and secluded stone and slate Lakeland in Applethwaite near Keswick. The house situated in ten acres of garden and woodland with a tumbling beck. It occupies a fine position on the south facing flank of Skiddaw with superb views across the vale of Keswick to the Newlands Fells. There is a small waterfall near the house, a number of woodland paths and a gate from the grounds leads directly onto the slopes of Skiddaw. There are associations with the poet Wordsworth who was given the property by Sir George Beaumont so that he could be near Coleridge. He wrote a sonnet in which he described the Ghyll as 'A seemly cottage in this Sunny Dell'.
