There is an excellent range of private and state schools nearby including Giggleswick and Sedbergh – Independent schools for 4 – 18 year olds – as well as Settle College, Ermysteds Grammar School and Skipton Girls High School.

For the commuter, the location is convenient for access to the West Yorkshire conurbation, East Lancashire and Manchester beyond.

The Manor House is a very attractive Grade II listed Georgian property, believed to date from 1786 (possibly with earlier 18th Century origins) with alterations undertaken in the 19th and 20th Centuries. It provides beautifully proportioned family accommodation which has been comprehensively yet sympathetically altered and improved during the current owners 20 year tenure. The setting is quite enchanting – it stands in a proud elevated position, enjoying outstanding panoramic views over picturesque countryside towards Pendle Hill and beyond, amidst stunning gardens and grounds extending to about 10 acres (4.05 ha) including manicured lawns, a walled Victorian garden, grassland and woodland.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors and includes a central reception hall, cloakroom, sitting room, dining room, breakfast kitchen, snug, utility/boiler room and a useful storage cellar. On the first floor is a landing, principal bedroom with a large en suite bathroom, guest bedroom with an en suite shower room, 2 additional bedrooms (one is currently used as a home office/study) and a house bathroom. On the second floor there are 3 further bedrooms and a bathroom.

Lying immediately to the rear of the house, there is a self contained 2/3 bedroom coach house which provides useful ancillary accommodation being suitable for a variety of uses including relatives/guest accommodation, a home office facility or alternatively a holiday rental or Airbnb.

The property is approached via a sweeping shared driveway which leads through a number of agricultural fields up to the house itself. To the west there is a substantial detached barn providing garaging and extensive storage and eminently suitable for a variety of other uses. Potential may exist to convert the barn into holiday accommodation, subject to appropriate planning consents being granted. To the rear of the main barn there is a gravelled area leading to a covered yard.

The gardens and grounds create a particular feature of this wonderful family house. The formal garden is set to the south side of the main house with terraced lawns, well stocked borders and a charming summer house. Amazing views are enjoyed. To the east, there is a delightful walled Victorian garden with an abundance of plants and shrubs, fruit trees, rose garden, pond and a pair of greenhouses. A wooded copse is set to the west of the barn together with an additional area of mature woodland to the north east of the house, beyond the kitchen garden. In addition there is a 5 acre (2.02 ha) paddock which lies to the north west.
