Overview| INTRODUCTION Located on the fringes of this popular village and with good transport links, this imposing detached barn conversion has spectacular elevated views towards Morecambe Bay. Upgraded and renovated by the current vendors, the property has been run as a successful Bed and Breakfast over the past five years but would be equally suitable as a large family home. The first floor sitting room is very generous and a real statement room, open to the roof space and all four of the double bedrooms have ensuites. There is a ground floor hobby room with adjacent utility along with a number of storage areas. The double garage and well planted garden complete the picture. If you are looking for a lifestyle change or just a slower pace of life, this could be the property for you.
Located just a few miles from junction 35 of the M6, the village is a great location for those needing to commute but still wanting the peace and quiet of the countryside. The Lancaster Canal runs close to the village offering walks along the tow path. The nearby amenities of Carnforth are a short distance away as is the Greenlands Farm Village and the Longlands Hotel
