Tenure: Freehold

The area of Swinden is just outside Hellifield which nestles on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is surrounded by rolling hills, dry stone walls and agricultural land. It was once an important railway junction with the station being re-developed in 1880 with a new line from Hellifield to Blackburn which transformed the village into a main passenger and freight interchange. Consequently many houses and streets were built in the early 20th century to house a large railway population, though much railway land was sold for housing after the closure of the Lancashire lines in the 1960’s. The historic station remains and still connects Skipton to Settle and onto Carlisle. Within the village there is a Primary School, doctor’s surgery, village hall, local shops and two public houses. 

The A682 links Hellifield to Gisburn, and Swinden is about a mile from Hellifield on this road. making it an ideal location for anyone commuting to either East Lancashire or North/West Yorkshire. The current owner of Ribblecote Manor bought the site nearly 40 years ago and custom-designed and built the house to an exacting specification in the mid 1980's. The property offers great versatility and may well suit a family who wants to combine two or three generations under one roof.
