The past two years have definitely forced a lot of us to be comfortable in our own presence, with many actually preferring calmer and slightly more off-grid lifestyles as a result of our covid isolations.

If you fancy a bit of a switch up, or are just in desperate need of some peace and quiet, you might want to check out this fascinating property that's gone up for sale.

Dubbed 'the most remote house in England', a huge 19th century building is up for grabs for the very first time.

Located in the Peak District, Skiddaw House is a six-bedroom former shooting lodge which dates back to the 19th century.

Built in 1829, it's had a seriously impressive run over the last 200 years and has not once been put up for sale.

Although originally constructed for the Earl of Egremont of Cockermouth Castle, it's since been used as a gameskeeper's lodge, shooting cabin and a shepherds dwelling.

Not only that, it was then a school fields centre, ramblers bothy and is currently a youth hostel.

However, the gigantic property has some serious potential for renovation, and with a little TLC could become a gigantic dream family home or even just a getaway spot away from all other forms of life.

It is surrounded by 3.45 acres of its own land and can't be accessed by any vehicle, only by foot.

A whopping 3.5 miles away from the nearest road, you'll need to be a fan of walking and own some pretty sturdy wellies.

If you're able to compromise on the Deliveroo and ASOS deliveries, the view might just be worth it?

Just in case it wasn't obvious from the lack of access, there's no mains electricity, internet or any kind of TV at the home, and you can forget all about mobile phone reception, as there's none of that either.

It's isolated status means there isn't a single other home across the 3,000-acre Skiddaw Forest.

The back-to-basics house is heated through a wood-burning stove which is powered by solar panels, with its water supply coming from a nearby stream.

Listed on RightMove, the real estate site has called Skiddaw House "an exciting and unique opportunity".

The listing reads: "The property was built in 1829 by the Earl of Egremont of Cockermouth Castle, built in the middle of Skiddaw Forest in the lonely lands back o'Skidda.

"Situated in 3.45 acres 1,500 feet above sea level and only accessible by foot or 4×4 vehicle.

"Skiddaw House is a 19th Century shooting lodge used over the years as a gamekeeper's lodge, shooting cabin, shepherds dwelling, schools field centre, ramblers bothy and currently a youth hostel."
