Nestled on the fringe of Whalley village, just minutes away from local facilities is Rookwood, an imposing country residence that dates back to 1880. Extensively improved, refurbished and extended in 2001 by the current owner, this stunning property which is enveloped around three acres of private gardens occupies a truly enviable location that is highly regarded and most convenient.



Rookwood is located on the periphery of the vibrant village of Whalley and within walking distance of all village amenities which include specialist local shops, Spar and Co-op supermarkets, health centre, bank, junior school, churches and recreational areas. There are also many cafes, coffee bars and restaurants together with a good road and rail network with easy access to the A59 giving through routes, north to Skipton and the Dales and south to Blackburn, Preston and the motorway network. There is also a train service north to Clitheroe and south to Blackburn, Preston and Manchester. Other features of the historic village include Whalley Abbey and some very pleasant walks along the river Calder.

The area is also perfectly located for well-respected secondary schools and private schooling establishments including Stonyhurst College, Oakhill College and Moorland School. There are many and varied sporting and leisure facilities within the area including golf at Whalley, Clitheroe, Stonyhurst and Wilpshire, football at Blackburn and Burnley, local cricket, walking, shooting, riding, swimming and fishing.

From our Whalley office proceed along King Street in the direction of Clitheroe, crossing two mini roundabouts and continue into Clitheroe Road. Rookwood lies on the left hand side as you leave the village.
