There are few properties in this area with such a superb outlook over the Ribble Valley and Yorkshire Dales. This detached cottage is located in farmland at Brownlow Farm in Twiston, just 1½ miles from the village of Barley, and just a bit further to the delightful village of Downham, where time has stood still. From the cottage, you can see the magnificent peaks of Pen-Y-Ghent, Ingleborough and Whernside, as well as the Trough and Forest of Bowland.
Lovingly renovated into a four bedroom holiday home, this ’upside down’ house offers some surprises! The cottage is accessed via a steep private unmade farm track. Gates must be closed and care is required on approach and departure. It has a terraced garden and a paved patio area for enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the surroundings. No traffic noises or street lights here!
