Set over 10 acres of gardens, grounds, fields and woodland, parking is available in abundance.

A home that radiates a sense of warmth and welcome before you even set foot inside, The Manor House is at one with its surroundings, with incredible views from the front doors out over the landscaped gardens and to the gentle outline of Pendle Hill. Welcome to Big Sky living.

A home with heritage
Grade II listed and with an inscription in the stone above the back door dated 1708, The Manor House has its roots in the Georgian era. Original deeds written on velum suggest permission for The Manor House was granted from the Abbot of Bolton Abbey.

An arresting arrival
Georgian symmetry and splendour sets the scene from the outside, as neatly edged lawns part to provide a paved pathway and circular steps to the royal blue, pediment front door, where a traditional fanlight allows a natural light flow through to the entrance hall.

Authentic Minton tiles stretch out underfoot as a traditional lantern light fitting illuminates from within a large ceiling rose above. Ahead, an archway directs the eye to the rear entrance hall. Instantly, the scope and scale of The Manor House imposes itself.


Beyond the archway, turn left into the drawing room, where French robust wooden flooring extends underfoot, and white painted beams extend overhead. A room of classic elegance, tall, traditional windows and a glazed door open out to the front terrace, framing stunning views beyond.

Another window to the side captures the light; The Manor House is a home carefully positioned and designed to take in the incredible views. Pause in the window seat to admire the vista.

Blending period romanticism with contemporary conveniences, The Manor House is a home designed with great care and attention afforded to everyday comforts. Note the sensible and abundant placement of sockets - both five-amp and regular - (avoiding the unsightliness of trailing wires), cable and Wifi points.

Enchanting archways are another elegant feature of the home, with a large arched alcove to the rear of the drawing room, accompanied on another wall by a handsome working fireplace.

Take the archway to the left of the drawing room to reach the homely kitchen. A true cook's kitchen, everything you need is within easy reach, with a large central island brimming in storage beneath. Cook up a feast on the large Range cooker, nestled within an attractive inglenook, conveniently situated opposite the fridge and freezer.

Doubling up as a breakfast bar, dine at the central island, where you can catch up over tea and toast, planning out your day - the kitchen is truly 'family command central'. Herringbone flooring extends underfoot with pretty views from the windows out to the courtyard and cottage, with its colourful climbing rose.

An archway connects the kitchen to the snug, a cosy and inviting room. Ideal as a playroom for children, watch over proceedings from the kitchen as dinner is prepared. An arched window frames views out, whilst chandelier lighting adds a touch of opulence from above. A versatile space, this room could serve as an office or cosy lounge.

Opening up off the snug is a handy utility room, with stone flooring, sink and plumbing for a washer and dryer alongside additional surface space and storage. Views extend out over the courtyard.

Across from the snug, a high Georgian archway caps the doorway through to the dining room. Beautifully proportioned, this room mirrors the drawing room, with its open fireplace, elegant cornicing, chandelier lighting and double aspect windows, with glass door opening to the front terrace and views. Spacious and bright, picture family Christmases gathered around the table for turkey and trimmings with lights twinkling on the tree as snow settles over Pendle Hill in the distance.

Returning to the entrance hall, discover the additional ground floor rooms, including a downstairs cloakroom with hanging space, wash basin and separate WC, and the barrel-vaulted cellar, still retaining its original meat hooks, rough-hewn stone walls and cold slabs - ideal for food and wine storage at parties.

Bedtime beckons
Ascend the traditional staircase, basking in the light flowing in through a tall arched window which frames views over the rockery and walled garden. So thoughtfully designed, The Manor House truly follows the surrounding setting, maintaining a constant relationship between indoors and outdoors.

Turning left at the top of the stairs, just off the large, light landing is the master bedroom. Beautifully proportioned, with gleaming wooden flooring, a large, seated window to the front takes in glorious views over the Ribble Valley and out to Pendle Hill.

A second window to the side draws in additional light, whilst an ornamental fireplace adds character. Refresh in the ensuite, spacious, light and furnished with a freestanding, claw-footed bath, shower cubicle, wash basin, WC and heated towel radiator.

Bedroom two awaits beneath an archway across the landing. Spacious and bright a built-in wardrobe provides storage, whilst a deep, seated window looks out over the courtyard. Another ornamental fireplace adds warmth.

Continue along the broad and bright landing, where an archway to the right leads to bedroom three. Fitted storage features once more in this large, light and airy bedroom. A built-in window seat allows you to bask in the beauty of the outdoors once more.

An inner landing to the right leads you to a WC at the end, conveniently set next door to the family bathroom. Another large room, enjoy relaxing soaks in the freestanding rolltop tub or refresh in the separate shower. Wooden flooring flows throughout this floor, for a seamless flow.

Across the hall, discover a fourth, bountiful bedroom, where light streams in through windows to two sides; at the front, this bedroom looks out towards Pendle Hill.

Freshen up in the ensuite, another large room with shower, wash basin, WC, and heated towel radiator. Opaque glass bricks borrow light from the bedroom, whilst retaining privacy.

From the main landing, take the stairs up once more to arrive at the landing of the second floor, with fitted storage and exposed beams. Abundant storage is also available in the eaves.

A versatile level, ideal for an independent teenager or perhaps an au pair, the second floor consists of a suite of rooms, flexible in their usage. On the left, light flows into the bathroom through roof lights inset in the sloping, beam-lined ceiling. Bright and spacious, the bathroom features a bath with showerhead attachment, wash basin and WC.

Along the landing, peep at the room on the left, ideal as an office or dressing room, before arriving at bedroom five further along on the left. Wooden flooring extends underfoot, a spacious double illuminated by a roof light above.

A door connects to bedroom six, also accessed from the inner landing. Spacious and bright, a low window frames views out to the walled garden.

The Coach House
Just a few steps across the courtyard discover the Coach House, a beautiful cottage annex with versatility and style.

On the ground floor, discover a large sitting room with French doors, a contemporary breakfast-kitchen and dining room (or potential third bedroom). There is also a large bathroom, with shower, wash basin and WC.

Upstairs, two more elegant bedrooms await, with views over the courtyard and grounds, with a bathroom containing bath, separate shower, wash basin and WC alongside a spacious storeroom.

While The Coach House is ideal for guest accommodation, multigenerational living, and Airbnb income, it could also work perfectly as the base for a business. Consider the ease of a three-yard commute to work...

Barn-storming potential...
With full planning permission granted to transform the characterful barn into ancillary accommodation, the beautiful barn also brings with it great potential.

Gardens
The Manor House lives up to its name, with as much splendour to experience in the gardens as indoors.

Restored and landscaped by the current owners, this once overgrown and wild garden has been reclaimed and reloved at great expense. A labour of love, the work has seen the excavation of waterfalls, paths dug out and re-laid, a gorge walk rediscovered, and a fairy ring cleared, alongside an installation of garden terraces and a stumpery for insects.

Making your way through the gate to the front, landscaped stone steps lead past cascading waterfalls of the quarry garden and follow the rhododendron walk up to the woods, a wild contrast to the neatly manicured and bordered lawns on the left.

Pause in the shade of the summer house and admire the views. A tiered garden, woodland garden, chamomile lawn, terraced garden, rockery and formal front garden.

Formality and charm emanate from the Victorian walled garden, breathtaking when it bursts into colour in springtime and brimming with a wide variety flowers which grows into a rainbow of colour.

Take a seat in the walled garden and admire the views out over the Ribble Valley. A space that ignites creativity, linger all day and allow the tranquility to soothe your soul.

Frequented by all manner of birds, butterflies and wildlife, the two acres of formal garden are accompanied by a five-acre paddock and three acres of woodland.
