Full descriptionOccupying an outstanding rural location in the heart of the Ribble Valley amidst open rolling countryside, this stone built period property, believed to have been constructed in 1645 with later extensions, is set in approximately 1 acre of gardens, including wooded and wildflower areas with an adjoining 3.5 acre paddock/field available by separate negotiation. The internal accommodation offers flexible living with an internal floor area of approximately 3,919 sq. ft. on two floors.
We moved from London to Oxhey Farm with 1&2 year old children. It has been a perfect location for children to run around and have adventures and learn about nature in the different parts of the garden and coppice. There is a large pond, well surrounded by foliage as a natural barrier but ideal to have our children grow up understanding how to behave near water.
You feel cut off, looking out over the fields and hills when you want to feel remote, but being a drive up to the end of the lane, turning left and you're quickly in the small market town of Longride, another 10 minutes to the M6, turn right at the lane end and you're heading to the idyllic village of Ribchester on the banks of the River Ribble makes Oxhey an ideal location for families to stretch out, ride bikes up the lane, walk along the river to Ribchester, and perfectly positioned if you need to commute to work as I do. Perhaps best of all has been the welcoming community, whether it's the warmth of the neighbours, making us feel such a part of the community from day 1 or school and village life in Ribchester being so inclusive of any newcomers into the area. We couldn't have wished for a more wonderful community, so much so, we won't be moving away from this area.
