  • “Rose Hips Barn is a fabulous house with plenty of room, inside and out, for a family holiday.”

    The horses and chickens next door proved very popular with our grandchildren. The house is very well appointed, with everything you could need. We especially appreciated that most bedrooms were en-suite.

We especially appreciated that most bedrooms were en-suite. The area itself is lovely, with great walks and Blackpool and the coast are only about 45 minutes away. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

The property

Nestled with the picturesque moorland countryside as a backdrop to a wonderful, converted Lancashire cottage, is Rose Hips Barn.

This stunning property enwrapped in idyllic landscape scenery is yet only minutes from the motorway and market town of Chorley, boasting a fabulous interior of combined old and new features.

Step into this delightful home-from-home and kick back in the ideal sociable space, offered in the open-plan living room.

The sleek granite worktops compliment all-white fitted units and modern fixtures to use at your convenience, whilst the charming exposed brick work adds a touch of character.

These accompany a lovely sitting area and a dining table at which you can all enjoy breakfast together, or a spot of lunch before you head out to explore the wondrous region of Lancashire.

For your evening meal however, why not head into the formal dining room to eat your meal, which comprises patio doors opening out onto the rear patio area?

Next door is the formal lounge, a traditional style room with chaise longue, feature fireplace and more exposed beams revealing its original structure.

Admire the alluring views from the window and relax in the tranquil atmosphere.

Upstairs you will find an elongated corridor with a charming window seat and a twinkling chandelier for added style and class.

This stems off to a fabulous set of bedrooms, each decorated and presented with the highest standard of quality; the first king-size room boasts a floor-to-ceiling picture window, whilst the rest of the rooms benefit en-suite facilities.

The family bathroom finishes off the first floor in a modern fashion with polished tiles and neutral décor.

Outside you can enjoy the delights of the garden; a flourishment of pretty shrubs and a gravelled area dotted with delightful plant pots, all enveloped by wonderful landscapes.

The delightful village of Wheelton is close by with a tearoom, pubs and a clock tower, whilst in the other direction is the market town of Chorley, with many shops, eateries and a train station.

Further afield are attractions in abundance, with the breath-taking Forest of Bowland within driving distance along with the cities of Blackburn, Manchester and Liverpool.

This charm-filled barn conversion is an opportunity not to be missed.
