If you're looking for a charming character cottage in a picturesque and peaceful village, this is the opportunity for you!
A rare chance to own this gorgeous & affordable 2 bedroom home, surrounded by woodland walks and set by the river Calder, in the quintessential English village of Calder Vale.
Stepping out of the front door, you are greeted by the serene sounds of the flowing river and the occasional cotton mill loom, with views out over the green valley.
The pretty residence, built in the 1840s, also benefits from double glazing throughout, custom built wooden doors, tiered garden to the rear, parking space, stone flooring and beautiful sandstone fireplace housing a wood burner, for that cosy cottage feel!
Set on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, Calder Vale is a tranquil small village, steeped in history, with many character buildings including The church of St. John the Evangelist and Lappet Mill, which is still used today as a working cotton mill.
Conveniently located, Calder Vale is only a mere 10 minute drive from the market town of Garstang, with a vast array of amenities, including supermarkets, pubs, independent shops, weekly high street market, schools and restaurants. It is also only 15 minutes from the Motorway network north & south, making this an excellent location. The area is also soon to benefit from B4RN which will provide hyperfast, fibre-based broadband at 1000 Mbit/s.
