Accessed opposite Rusland Cross Road, is an enclosed, gated lawned garden/orchard that is interspersed with a selection of established shrubs and trees and contains the sceptic tank.
The current main entrance is accessed to the side elevation over a driveway from Rusland Cross with a gated frontage that leads to the lawned rear gardens and wash house.

Development Potential: A pre-application determination to the Lake District National Park has advised that the conversion of the barn to additional accommodation for Ealinghearth Cottage is unlikely to be an act of development requiring planning permission. If the barn were to be converted into a separate dwelling, a full planning application would be required, with the National Park unlikely to support a separate holiday let, but may support a local needs dwelling.
