IF you ever fancied escaping to the country to get away from the stresses and strains of working life – well perhaps our property of the week in the Forest of Bowland will be the perfect choice for you.

This stunning four-bedroom detached family home, the Tile House, is set in a wonderful rural location between the village of Sawley and Bolton-by-Bowland near Clitheroe.

The home is a perfect mix of the traditional with a modern twist.

Family and friends will be charmed by this countryside haven of greenery and quiet as it is on a private track and stands out as it sits alone with superb views of nearby farmland.

You will be able to wake up in the morning and enjoy the beautiful mature gardens which are on the 212 sq m plot.

While the outside of the property is well-worth a visit alone to appreciate getting closer to nature again, the house itself is set on two floors and has had an upgrade in recent years.

As you enter the property you will be able to enjoy the spacious reception room and dining room with a welcoming feature fireplace as well as stone flag floors.

One great thing about this house is the wooden beams which ensure it stays true to its roots for country living.

There is a garden room with a contemporary wood burning stove where you can sit in the depths of winter and stay warm.

The separate study has great views of the gardens and countryside.

You would expect the kitchen to be the perfect place to whip up those homemade cakes and jams and other food and it does not disappoint as it has traditional wooden units and then contemporary range cookers.

On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, a master bedroom with fitted furniture, ensuite shower room, and access to balcony overlooking the gardens with delightful rural views towards Pendle Hill.

There are three further double bedrooms and a separate house bathroom.

The rear gardens adjoin open farmland where there are superb long distance views towards Sawley and Pendle Hill.

The landscaping has been designed for easy maintenance while there is a pond and extensive flower beds to the front and side, the lawned areas at the side and rear are flanked by a hedges.
