"We designed and built the property ourselves and it was the location that attracted us here nearly 30 years ago. The land was completely overgrown but the shallow river on the grounds really sold it to us. Our children and dogs have loved playing in the water over the years and they've spent countless hours fishing for trout and looking out for wildlife, including owls, kingfishers, woodpeckers and deer," say the owners.
More from the vendor "We love the country lifestyle, yet we're also equidistant from both Leeds and Manchester city centres where we can easily access the amenities. We enjoy walking around the reservoir and the signposted walking routes have handrails to assist in some places, as well as boards detailing what wildlife to look out for. Our local Co-op is well stocked and we also have an artisan bakery in the village, as well as a Craft beer and wine store. We're spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out and the award-winning Moorcroft Inn at Norland is always a delight.
