Description  Owlet Fell represents a rare opportunity to purchase a picturesque and beautiful area of fell land in the south of the Lake District. There is good access along quiet country lanes from the A590. Once on the land, you will be able to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the surroundings as well as the stunning outlook to the surrounding fells.
It is set in the Lake District National Park, the land being typical of the southern lakes area with a variety of features such as streams, rocky outcrops and grassy areas including some flat pieces suitable for occasional camping. There are also some elevated areas with excellent views. Owlett Fell would lend itself to being a fascinating conservation project in encouraging increased woodland cover either through planting new trees or assisting natural regeneration. Species already growing include birch, willow, mountain ash, hawthorn, oak, ash and hazel. There is also a very diverse ground flora including orchids, pignuts, grasses and ferns plus much more. Juniper is found very locally and could be encouraged.
Access: after the first gate the road is classed as a BOAT, byway open to all traffic.
