    “High quality accommodation, beautiful gardens and great communication with owner and housekeeper.”

The property

Built in the 16th century, this old water powered mill has now become a luxurious and unique holiday accommodation, set within an acre of luscious grounds not far from the village of Chipping in Lancashire, Wolfen Mill will impress everyone who visits with its high-quality furnishings and decor.

The mill closed production in the 1920s, and was a manufacturer of spindles and bobbins for the local spinning mills.

It undertook its charming renovations in 2018 to transform into award-winning accommodation, where a larger group can find the perfect spot to come together with a vast amount of space for all, you will be able to truly relax.

Also a haven for wildlife, the dam or millrace provides a great spot for nature to flourish with views of Parlick Pike able to be marvelled at.

Beginning with the hub of this maze of beautiful rooms, the top-floor sitting room has ample plush seating and bi-fold doors that open out onto the decked area overlooking the water, creating a tranquil ambience as the sun sets.

A huge dining room on the ground floor will host a large group of 22 with the ability to squeeze a few more in if needs be; celebrate a special occasion with all of your loved ones and drink to your wonderful holiday.

Enjoy a cooling beverage on the patio while the food is catered to in the commercial kitchen, whether you have put one of the family to work or hired an external chef, they will love using the extensive range of appliances in this professional space.

A further two kitchens are on this floor if you are wanting to prepare something different to the rest, or maybe a surprise treat.

Set up as individual suites, the bedrooms come with their own sitting areas, kitchenettes and bathroom suites, an incredible layout giving you the chance to spend time apart from the larger group in your own space.

There is plenty of entertainment for you in the form of an LG High Definition Freeview LCD TV which has the benefits of all your favourite streaming services including Amazon Prime and Netflix, with a DVD player as well.

Once you have wandered through all of the gardens and taken a dip in the hot tub, you might think about venturing outside, if you can tear yourself away from this marvellous base.

The Trough Bowland is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is perfect for passionate walkers, offering beautiful landscapes and scenery to behold and excellent walking terrain.

The nearby villages of Longridge, Garstang, Whalley and Waddington offer a plethora of local shops and independent businesses as well as gastro pubs and tea rooms where you can enjoy some delicious food.

Return to the property later in the day and take a soak in the hot tub, or sit at the decking to gaze up at some of the darkest skies in England so you can spot the constellations.

This truly unique property, Wolfen Mill, and all it offers provides you with a magnificent holiday base to be enjoyed with your loved ones.
