Dating back to 1879, Barraclough House boasts almost 6000 square feet of accommodation over three floors, as well as a cellar which includes a wine store. This exceptional period property stands in large mature gardens and patio areas of approximately 2 acres to the south and west, perfect for daytime and evening entertaining in the sunshine. Separated by a meandering brook (Barrow Clough) there is a private woodland extending to 3.7 acres where there are a large number of mature trees and plants which provide a haven for many species of birds and other wildlife. Surrounded by open countryside, there are panoramic views of Stonyhurst, Kemple End, Beacon Fell, Waddington Fell and Clitheroe Castle.

Barraclough House retains a wide range of period features throughout the property. These include original exposed wooden floors, open fireplaces, high skirting boards, decorative cornices and corbels and floor to ceiling windows which give the house an abundance of natural light. The contemporary features which have been introduced are subtly integrated.

Barraclough House is located to the south of the historic market town of Clitheroe. Named after Barrow Clough, the small brook which runs through the woodland area at the bottom of the garden, Barraclough House is situated within the picturesque Ribble Valley. Approximately three quarters of a mile from the A59, Barraclough House offers road links to the M65, M66 and M6. It is also on a bus route and within walking distance of Clitheroe town centre which has direct rail links to Manchester. Clitheroe offers all major amenities including a range of supermarkets, doctors surgeries, dentists and boutique shopping opportunities. Eating out in the Ribble Valley with its many award-winning restaurants and hostelries is nationally renowned for its excellence. Education in the area has a wide choice of quality schools and prep-schools including Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, Stonyhurst College and Oakhill College.
