DESCRIPTION Set in stunning rural surroundings lies this character filled 18th century farmhouse, located in the sought after area of Cowan Bridge, Lancashire. Draped in period features, the extensive family home offers generous living accommodation across three floors and caters for large families offering four double bedrooms plus attic rooms. Adjoining the farmhouse, is an impressive unconverted stone built barn with detailed permitted development consent for a three bedroom residential dwelling which presents a fantastic opportunity to add value to the property. Furthermore, the six acres of excellent meadow and pasture land with natural stream water supply, along with a mature orchard further add to what Collingholme Farm has to offer.
The location of the farmhouse is conveniently just one mile from the A65, giving easy access to popular local market towns and villages such as Kirkby Lonsdale, Settle and Skipton. In these towns you will find an array of amenities from supermarkets to local village shops to necessities such as doctors, dentists and schools. Collingholme Farm sits within the catchment area for excellent local schools with the current owners children attending Leck primary school and then Queen Elizabeth secondary school in Kirkby Lonsdale in previous years.
What the owners say - On our marriage in May 1972 we moved in to Collingholme Farm House, and this has been our home for 44 years. We have always been very happy here and it has afforded us with a feeling of warmth and security in which to raise our family. We are moving on reluctantly due to needing to downsize as age and health have caught up with us.
Collingholme ( Holme, meaning flat land near water) having been re-built in the 1700's, has had many families living here, each having put their stamp on it, and made alterations to make it their own, now it is time for another family to do the same and give this wonderful old house a makeover.
We have always loved the location, nestling by the small stream of Cantbeck, where our children their friends and cousins spent many an hour getting wet and muddy.
We are only a mile from the A65 but you could be in a different world, yet only 4 miles from Kirkby Lonsdale, with its variety of facilities. The Lakes, Dales, and west coast are half an hour away so the location is ideal.
Our children attended Leck primary school and then Queen Elizabeth School, Kirkby Lonsdale, both excellent schools.
We have two close neighbours in the barn conversion, and we enjoy having them in the knowledge that we are not totally isolated and can share conversation as well as a jug of milk, a strimmer or power washer.
We wish, whoever follows us to love this old house as much as we have.
