WHY WE LOVE THIS HOME! A charming 18th century cottage bringing back "all of our yesterdays" with heart warming character. It is like walking in to an inn as you enter the intreging hallway with its internal window, the ledged and battened door welcomes you into the cosy lounge with its exposed beams, stone fireplace and stone mullioned windows with seating area and with open views to the front over the meadows - making you long to snuggle up in here on a winters night with a glass of red wine. The dining room is a lovely room and could easily work well as a home office, especially with the landscape window view! On the landing, the picture window also has seating with the most breathtaking panoramic views - quite a wonderful place to sit and read and the back garden is so peaceful. There is a parking bay to the front of all the cottages on the row enabling residents to keep their vehicles off the main road and the property has a small store to the front too. 

WHERE IT IS? Set back along the A671 Burnley Road, two miles from the town centre on the right hand side a few hundred yards before the Deerplay Inn. Burnley town centre is approximately four miles further along. 

WHAT THE VENDORS SAY? "This was a row where we had always fancied living so when we spotted the for sale board when we drove by one day, we decided we wanted it right away. It was the horse culture round here that was particularly of interest and it was brilliant for walking our dogs too. Some of the neighbours have lived here for years and years and are brilliant." 

POINTS TO NOTE ON LOCATION? The property is well situated for hikers, runners, horse riders and cyclists. Enjoy walks over the Pendle Bridleway which offers horse riders, cyclists and walkers the opportunity to explore 205 miles of the Pennines' ancient packhorse routes, drovers roads and newly created bridleways! Or a nice walk to visit the nearby famous 'Singing Ringing Tree' set in the landscape of the Pennine hill range. The location is perfect for people with equestrian needs with plenty of stabling options close by and there is a horse riding school on Burnley Road in Weir Village which is growing ever more popular. Lee Quarry is a haven for mountain bikers and hosts many cycling events throughout the year . Bacup Old Road is only a few hundred yards away if you prefer to keep to a country lane and is just opposite the Deerplay Inn. It would take just over 10 minutes to get to Burnley in a car and there is a train station there linking to Blackburn, Preston and Manchester. The local town centre is only 2 miles away and has supermarkets and small shops.
