The property

Set amidst the serene Lancashire countryside is this stunning detached farmhouse, resting a short distance away from the bustling town of Chorley.

Bring your friends and family to share a wonderful holiday in this characterful holiday cottage, offering a base in which to simply relax and unwind or to explore the plethora of villages, towns and cities within the area.

Admire the well-maintained gardens of the property before entering into the light-filled kitchen, where the sleek kitchen units contain a range of appliances for you to be able to rustle up a family favourite meal, as well as a small dining table to enjoy a glass of wine while dinner simmers on the hob.

Moments that are more formal can be enjoyed at the large dining table, which is situated within the spacious sitting room, boasting a cosy woodburning stove and characterful exposed beams, a great spot for a sociable get to together over a home-cooked meal.

Afterwards, head into the additional sitting room, where you can flick on the TV and snuggle up on the sofas, with the woodburning stove crackling in the background.

More impressively, Moody House Farm comes with a games room, where you can challenge a loved one to a game of pool, a perfect addition for those rainy days or fun-filled evenings before heading to bed.

The character of the property is continued upstairs, where two of the double bedrooms boast beautiful exposed beams and the other three double bedrooms ensure that large groups of families, friends and couples can enjoy a holiday to this part of England.

Head outside during a balmy afternoon to further appreciate the gardens, where table and chairs offer a spot for alfresco dining with a barbecue to rustle up some delicious treats and a quaint summerhouse to relax in as your canine companions roam the lawn and children play.

From here, head to the nearby village of Wheelton, where you will find a delightful tearoom, pubs and a clock tower, whilst in the other direction is the market town of Chorley, where you will find a larger selection of shops, eateries and a train station to take you further afield.

There is mountain biking on Healey nab which is very close to the property.

Further explore your surroundings by visiting Angelzarke Reservoir and Rivington Pike, which promises an excellent afternoon of walking, or the many attractions including Astley Hall, Hoghton Tower and the pretty Fairy Glen.

Further afield are attractions in abundance, with the breath-taking Forest of Bowland within driving distance along with the cities of Preston, Manchester and Liverpool, which can be visited with ease by train.

Moody House Farm is the ideal property, as you and your loved ones explore this stunning part of England.

About the location


Preston 9.9 miles; Southport 20.2 miles.

Chorley is a town in Lancashire, England, nestled close to Black Brook. Evidence has been discovered that human settlement has existed since the Bronze Age, though unconfirmed until the Middle Ages. Home of the Chorley cake, this thriving town offers a large number of independent shops and supermarkets for picking up those last-minute essentials, as well as some traditional pubs and restaurants for that fine dining experience. Further afield is the seaside town of Southport, residing in Merseyside, but was historically part of Lancashire when it was founded in 1792. Southport provides an exceptional amount of attractions that are well-worth a visit, including Southport Pleasureland, an amusement park with thrilling rides, a go-kart track and an indoor play area, perfect if you're travelling with your little ones. Also popular is Southport beach for those summer months, Southport Pier, the nearby Royal Birkdale Golf club and the main shopping centre on Lord Street. With a wealth of thing to do in the area, you are well-placed for touring the best of country and coast.
