Key Features

  • A substantial country residence built in the latter part of the nineteenth century providing six bedroom family accommodation
  • Extensively modernised throughout whilst retaining the original period features
  • Detached Coach House providing additional two bedroom accommodationBeautifully maintained and mature landscaped gardens

Moorlands is a substantial country residence having been built in the latter part of the nineteenth century. The main residence was constructed of dressed sandstone to a high quality with imposing elevations, a particularly impressive entrance porch with triple arched entrance door and window openings flanked on either side by the mullion windows of the principal reception rooms. The period features are just as impressive, the original character having been retained even though the property has been extensively modernised by the current owners. The whole of the property is tastefully and attractively decorated throughout. An imposing entrance hallway leads to a delightful reception hall with galleried landing and large centre roof light. All the reception rooms are of an elegant nature with deep skirtings, moulded architraves and ornate cornice features.

To the south of the house across the courtyard is a detached Coach House and former stables bearing a date stone of 1870, now converted to provide additional two bedroom accommodation.




Moorlands is situated in the highly accessible village of Foulridge, which lies close to the borders of North and West Yorkshire. The village lies on the edge of the Pennines and from its elevated position benefits from impressive views across the hills towards the Yorkshire Dales. Historically the origins of Foulridge date back to the Stone Age and the village was associated with Oliver Cromwell during the Civil War.

Today, Moorlands has excellent communication links and is almost equally distant from the main financial centres of the North, with Manchester being approximately 36 miles away, Leeds approximately 36 miles away, Harrogate 31 miles, Wakefield approximately 46 miles and Halifax approximately 28 miles.

The M65, M6 and M1 are all within convenient reach. From Manchester Piccadilly there are fast services to London Euston and the rail station at Colne links with the mainline at Preston. Regular national and international flights are available from Leeds Bradford Airport and Manchester International Airport about 31 and 49 miles respectively.

There is an excellent range of first class schooling for all ages in the local vicinity including Ermysteds Grammar School, Girls Grammar School in Skipton, Moorlands in Clitheroe, Oakhill College, Whalley and Stonyhurst College in Hurst Green.
