Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Location: with origins as a ''swill maker's'' home and workshop (a 'swill' being a type of basket!) Greenthorn dates back some 400 years and retains some lovely features with some great views into the garden and to the Lakeland Fells.

Arriving at Bowland bridge from the Lyth Valley take the road Westwards rising up towards the 'Masons Arms' pub at Strawbberry Bank. Having crossed the bridge, take the second turn on the left and continue on this road for about a mile with Greenthorn being on the left hand side. (If you continue on this road it takes you to High Newton - where you should start if coming from the A590 in the West!)
