THE PROPERTY: Situated within the Lancashire village of Waddington, this exquisite Grade II-listed period home sits amid 2.2 acres of beautiful private grounds and manicured Italianate gardens. The house has a fascinating history: it is known to have sheltered King Henry VI in 1464 and is one of the oldest sites in the area, with some rooms even dating back to the 11th century. With subsequent redevelopments and extensions over the past 100 years, the five-bedroom home seamlessly blends elements of its original architecture with a stylish modern wing.

THE LOCATION: Nestled within the serene village of Waddington (a frequent winner of the Best-Kept Village award in the Ribble Valley), the property sits in close proximity to both the Forest of Bowland and the bustling market town of Clitheroe – a Norman town that offers a wide array of amenities, including boutique retailers, wine merchants, breweries and restaurants. Clitheroe has a clutch of well-regarded state and independent schools, and there is also a notable primary school in Waddington itself.

THE INTERIOR: Original deep-set Crittall windows frame the garden views and flood the home with natural light. The panelled drawing-room looks out over the formal gardens, while the adjacent dining-room leads through to an open-plan kitchen. There are five well-proportioned double bedrooms, making the home ideal for entertaining. In terms of leisure facilities, there is a steam-room, a set of changing rooms and a glorious heated swimming pool.

WHY WE LOVE IT: The master bedroom contains gilded baroque cornicing along the barrel ceiling and finely painted murals that date back to the Pre-Raphaelite era. These details, along with ancient doorways, staircases and an original 11th-century Monk’s Room with an adjoining Great Hall, have all been beautifully preserved.
