The Cottage Barn occupies a quiet yet central location in the beautiful village of Newton in Bowland in the Hodder Valley. This is a unique and desirable property in a rural location providing superb access to The Ribble Valley, the Trough of Bowland to the west and the Yorkshire Dales to the east. There are many beautiful country walks close by and the village has a popular and well frequented pub.

The property sits behind solid timber electric gates which lead to a private sweeping driveway, with ample parking for numerous cars.

The split level accommodation briefly comprises:-

Lower ground floor - Accessed from the driveway through bi fold doors is the kitchen which has a pleasant view of the garden and access to a covered terrace. Internally there are hand made solid wood painted units with granite & Iroko worktops, there is plenty of storage and a range cooker. The floor is a natural stone with underfloor heating and to the rear of the kitchen is a useful utility room.

An internal staircase leads to the ground floor entrance hall / landing which has an external door to outside and a short staircase to the Living room which has a feature glass gable which is South facing with long distance views. Passing back through the hallway there are two generous bedrooms and access to the house bathroom. From an inner hallway there is a further staircase to the first floor to the master bedroom with en-suite shower room.

The garden is mature and well landscaped with bedding areas and a secluded patio area, there is a stream and an attractive stone built folly. Within the grounds there is a large detached building which is a large garage / workshop with separate storeroom or office. Perfect for those wanting to run a business from home. On the first floor is The Perches, a superb self-contained one bedroom apartment which is finished in a contemporary style and has spacious living accommodation, bedroom and bathroom. This could easily provide somewhere for a family member to live or as a holiday let, as it has been recently with some reasonable success.

Newton in Bowland is only 6.5 miles from the market town of Clitheroe which is well placed for commuting offering excellent communication links with all East Lancashire business centres and the rest of the country by road and rail.
