The Gatehouse

The Gatehouse

This attractive, detached property was formerly The Gatehouse to the Calico printworks, but now offers a unique and quirky home with charm and character.

It is an ideal place for a base to walk & cycle taking in the beauty of the Ribble Valley & Forest of Bowland.

Set on the main road in the quaint village of Barrow, The Gatehouse boasts a lovely open-plan living space with a high ceiling and recessed spotlighting, large windows and solid oak flooring, expressing a real eye for detail from the owners.

Here you can relax upon an evening, catching up on your favourite shows courtesy of the Smart TV, with an alluring woodburning stove to gently heat you.

The bespoke kitchen is finished with solid wood bespoke units and black granite surfaces, plus an electric oven and hob to assist in the home-cooking.

Serve dinner at the dining table and pop open a bottle of fizz, toasting to a romantic getaway with your better half.

Fitted with sleek worktops and white walls, the utility provides a basin, dishwasher and washing machine so you can put your muddy clothes on a spin.

On the next floor is the bedroom, offering great character with a pitched ceiling, dormer window and fitted wardrobes, plus an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower, basin, heated towel rail and WC.

To the exterior of this Barrow home is off-road parking for 2 cars.

Within a short walk of the property is The Bay Horse a typical village pub, the nearby Eagle at Barrow a restaurant & pub which is re-opening soon, and Choi Gan an excellent vegetarian restaurant and takeaway. There is also a Co-op with Petrol Station and several fast-food eateries nearby.

A short walk away is the village of Whalley which is home to convenience stores for the essentials and several excellent eateries if you fancy a night off cooking, plus Pubs and Whalley Wine Bar.

Clitheroe offers a number of places to eat and drink, along with a selection of independent shops for grabbing local produce.

Market days are every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

Learn about local history with a visit to the 12th-century Norman Castle that towers over the town, a Grade I listed building, which is said to be the smallest in England.

You have the wonderful seaside town of Lytham St Anne’s within an hour’ s drive, offering a bustling beach and a friendly seaside atmosphere.
