A STONE-BUILT FORMER FARMHOUSE OFFERING SUBSTANTIAL FIVE BEDROOMED FAMILY ACCOMMODATION, WITH A FABULOUS BARN ALONGSIDE WHICH HAS PLANNING FOR CONVERSION - SET IN JUST UNDER 2 ACRES OF GARDEN AND CROFT, WITH STUNNING SOUTHERLY VIEWS ACROSS PENDLE. Hainslack Farm is a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to develop the barn alongside into either a home or a business - the Pennine Bridleway, which is a new National Trail, offers horse riders, cyclists and walkers the opportunity to explore 205 miles of the Pennines' ancient packhorse routes, drovers roads and newly created bridleways, and there is a need for riders, cyclists and walkers to have somewhere to lay their heads (and their horses' heads!) overnight whilst en route.

Colne occupies a strategic location close to the southern entrance of the Aire Gap, which offers the lowest crossing of the Pennine watershed. The M65 terminates just west of the town and from here two main roads take traffic onwards towards the Yorkshire towns of Skipton (A56, 11 miles) and Keighley (A6068). Colne railway station represents the current terminus of the East Lancashire railway line, which until 1970 extended northwards towards Skipton. Colne is surrounded by beautiful villages and open countryside, which have helped to fuel a recent growth in tourism. The hamlet of Wycoller with its historic pack horse bridge and clam bridge, said to date back to the Iron Age, lies to the south-east in Brontë Country. The ruin of Wycoller Hall is thought to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre. 

Hainslack Farm is on Skipton Old Road, 7 miles from Skipton, with stunning views across spectacular Pendle scenery to the South. The main house comprises five bedrooms and has been a great family home for many years. The house is heated by an oil-fired radiator system, although the vendors have an approved scheme for a biomass boiler which attracted grant funding. Attached to the house is a substantial barn which was granted Planning Consent on 18th October 2016 (Pendle Borough Council Decision No. 16/0564/FUL) for conversion into a substantial dwelling house extending to around 2,200 sq ft on two floors.

THE BARN Adjoining the house, this is a fine barn with excellent head height and a good roof (replaced in 1995). Planning Consent has been granted for its conversion into a dwelling house on two floors, depicting an open plan Kitchen / Dining / Living Area on the ground floor with a Snug, and three Double Bedrooms on the first floor with a large Bathroom and En Suite. In total the plans allow for circa 2,200 sq ft of gross internal accommodation. 

OUTSIDE The total site extends to 1.93 acres with a grassland croft and garden area, as well as a stone external store. There is a hardcore access lane leading over a cattle-grid and around the front of the barn to the farmhouse which gives parking/turning space, and a lawned garden area to the front, side and rear. (NB. If the barn is converted into a separate dwelling, the planners have approved that the driveway be divided at its entrance to form a separate access to the house). Please note that a seldom-used (once a year) public footpath crosses through the north-west of the property's land. 

SERVICES Mains electricity is installed. Water is from a private bore hole (installed in 1999). Drainage is to a septic tank. The house is heated by an oil-fired radiator system. Natural gas is not available in the area.

DIRECTIONS Using satnav, the postcode will take you to the wrong farm!! From Skipton, go through Carleton and out of the village on West Road for about 4 miles. Go past the right-hand turning to Earby, down the hill then back up the hill and at the top it is the second farm on the left (just past the last turning to Lothersdale on the left). A For Sale sign is erected. Go through the wide entrance and over the cattle grid through the croft to get to the farm. If you get to the Black Lane Ends pub, you have gone too far!
