A detached property offering a wealth of accommodation, presenting the opportunity for an attached cottage or smaller annexe. With adjoining workshop, detached garage, wood store and about 14 acres of land and gardens.


Woodlands Farm is situated in a rural location surrounded by open countryside about two miles away from Longridge, a semi-rural town in the heart of the Ribble Valley. Longridge is home to a range of services including a supermarket, a fuel station, restaurants, public houses, a library and a range of primary and secondary schools including Longridge High School and St. Celicia's High School.

Located a short drive from the property is Clitheroe, a historic market town located in the heart of the Ribble Valley. Clitheroe boasts all major amenities including several supermarkets, doctors surgeries, dentists and individual boutique shopping. The Ribble Valley is home to a wide variety of award-winning restaurants and bars, many of which are nationally renowned. There is a wide choice of excellent education in both the town centre and neighbouring towns. These include the renowned Clitheroe Royal Grammar School and Stonyhurst College. Clitheroe has hourly, direct rail links to both Blackburn and Manchester, which can be reached within an hours journey. Located on the periphery of the town, the A59 bypass offers road links to the M65, M66, M6, Skipton and Preston. The nearest airports are Manchester and Leeds Bradford and both are around an hour's drive from the property.

Preston 10 miles, Clitheroe 11 miles, Lancaster 31 miles, Manchester 39 miles.


Woodlands Farm enjoys a rustic setting, with the amenities of Longridge town about 2 miles away and good access to Ribchester via the Ribble Way Bridle Path. The property is well placed for primary and secondary schooling with accessible transport links to major business conurbations.

A large detached family home is now offered, the original farmhouse being tastefully joined to the previously separate stone barn. There is also flexibility to split out into substantial annexe accommodation. The full height entrance hall to the barn leads to a generous study. The sitting room has a modern feature fireplace and a door onto the gardens, with the breakfast kitchen benefitting from large double doors leading onto the patio and overlooking the garden, for a splendid morning start. There is also a formal drawing room, dining room and workshop.

The original farmhouse has a large master bedroom and en suite to the first floor, with a study area or potential dressing room connecting to the barn, which has 3 double bedrooms one with a mezzanine floor above with house bathroom and open plan living space. This floor has potential for further bedrooms, if required.

Externally is a double garage, tool store and log store to the rear. A wildlife meadow leads to the orchard with the gardens lined by Leece's Woodland, a biological heritage site for wildlife and ecology of about 12.9 acres.

Square Footage: 3,905 sq ft
Acreage: 14.4 Acres


Coming from Clitheroe, head towards Edisford Road and follow the road for about ten miles, passing through Hurst Green and Knowle Green. At the Corporation Arms, turn left onto Preston Road and then turn right onto Hothersall Lane. Follow the road for about a mile and the property will be at the bottom of the hill on the left hand side.
