Expect a tingle of excitement as you approach ... the location is that good. A house and cottage in a tranquil position enjoying countryside views within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Simply lovely - impressive property too.

Entry is via the porch, with a door to the cloakroom with WC and through to a welcoming hall with underfloor heated stone tiled flooring and beamed ceiling. The utility room can be found to the right and provides an internal access to the separate cottage which is presently closed due to this property being used for holiday letting. Straight ahead can be found a light, bright sitting room looking out onto countryside views and the woodland beyond. This is a well-balanced room with beams over the windows, in-built shelving, underfloor heating and a multifuel stove set into a stone surround and hearth.

The spacious open dining-kitchen is impressively appointed with a range of base and wall cabinets and island units complimented with a granite worktop. A desirable specification to the fittings include a Range cooker with 5-burner gas hob and double electric ovens, space for a large fridge and freezer, integrated wine cooler, dishwasher and built-in microwave. This room is completed by a log burning stove with surround and hearth as well as attractive stone floor tiles with underfloor heating.

To the first floor can be found the family bathroom with 4-piece suite providing a corner shower cabinet, panelled bath, pedestal washbasin and WC. This floor comprises the four comfortable double bedrooms, all enjoying superb views over the countryside and with two of the bedrooms benefiting from en-suite shower rooms.


With a front door and internal access the separate cottage is currently used as a holiday let but has flexible uses as an annex for relatives, guests to stay or even incorporated into the main house.

Entrance is via the front door into an open plan lounge and kitchen area with an impressive fitted kitchen with wall and base units incorporating built-in oven and hob, built-in fridge-freezer, extractor, sink and worktops. The cosy lounge has two windows offering views over the garden. Upstairs can be found a double bedroom with en-suite shower room; this bedroom also enjoys views over the garden.

Externally there is ample space for parking to the front and side of the property, with easy turning. A front lawned garden area and paved patio area provide a relaxing space.

To the rear of the property is a paved garden with open views and steps down to a small "hidden" garden with a stream flowing through it—a beautiful English country garden.

Directions—Please note Sat Nav doesn't provide the best route. Below is advised.

From The George and Dragon public house in Wray head towards Millhouses and continue through following the road, bearing right signposted Bentham and Lowgill. Up the hill and continue until the right-hand turn to Lowgill and Tatham Fells. Turn right here and follow the road, ignoring the turn to Settle but taking the next right hand turn on Furnessford Road. Down the hill and turn left before the bridge onto the long driveway leading to the property.
