Located in the rural village of Newchurch-in-Pendle, this beautiful Grade II listed, detached stone barn, which dates back to the 16th century, offers tons of charm and period features alongside all the modern comforts to be expected from a holiday home.
The barn has been thoughtfully and lovingly restored to provide a spacious and welcoming home from home.
The village of Newchurch-in-Pendle which lies south of Pendle Hill, has a colourful history and is famous for the Pendle Witches who lived there during the 17th century. The neighbouring village of Barley, 1½ miles, is popular with walkers and often used as the starting point for a walk up Pendle Hill. It has a dog-friendly village pub, café, restaurant and picnic area. Drive on from Barley and time stands still in Downham (made famous by "Whistle Down the Wind" with Hayley Mills and many period dramas).
The village of Fence, 2 miles, has a few good dining pubs as well as a village shop and post office. A wider range of amenities can be found in the market town of Colne, 7 miles, which has a good selection of shops and supermarkets as well as bars, restaurants, theatres and Boundary Mill which is popular with bargain hunters. Barrowford, 3 miles, is absolutely worth a visit with its coffee shops, wine bars, boutique shops and if the mood takes you, some great takeaways.
Alternatively, on the north side of Pendle Hill lies Clitheroe, 6 miles, which offers wonderful shopping opportunities, a world-famous wine shop, and access to villages such as Waddington, with its real ale pubs.
Being close to the Lancashire/Yorkshire border makes this property the ideal touring base, as there is so much to see and do within easy driving distance. Haworth and Brontë country are certainly worth a visit, 17 miles, as is Skipton where you can browse the shops and stop for a spot of lunch, or even try an award winning Stanforths pork pie. Wycoller Country Park is only 10 miles and is great for a quiet family walk along the river and visiting the ruins of Wycoller Hall. The Ribble Valley District is 15 miles away, which offers picturesque villages and welcoming country pubs. Should you wish to venture further afield, the Yorkshire Dales National Park is within a 45-minute drive, and just over an hour’s drive will take you to the Lake District. For those who enjoy the coast, why not visit the Fylde Coast with popular seaside resorts including Blackpool, Lytham, St Anne’s and Morecambe.
Walking is one of the most popular activities in the area and there are walks to suit all levels of ability. It’s also a great area for fishing, cycling and golf. With something to suit everyone, this superb barn is the ideal place to relax and unwind after a day’s walking or sightseeing. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.
