The property

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

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 of attention 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 marble worktops and white walls, the utility provides a basin, dishwasher and washing machine so you can put your muddy clothes on a spin.

Climb the corner staircase to reveal 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 a small patio and off-road parking for one car.

The village of Barrow is home to a convenience store for the essentials and a handful of excellent eateries; if you fancy a night off cooking, The Bay horse and The Eagle of Barrow are popular pubs amongst locals and visitors, whilst Choi Gan serves delicious vegetarian Cantonese food.

Nearby Clitheroe offers a number of places to eat and drink, along with a selection of independent shops for grabbing local produce, including the award-winning Byrnes Wine Shop with its enormous underground cellar, Cowman’s Famous Sausage Shop and the Exchange Coffee Company, which stocks a variety of specialist teas and coffees.

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 actually said to be the smallest in England.

Those looking to get their steps in can venture through the Yorkshire Dales National Park, whilst there are other outdoor activities within the Forest of Bowland, including fishing, paragliding and even hot air ballooning.

One those are complete, 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.

The Gatehouse is a quirky base to get away from it all.
