Living and eating

Anglezarke has an exquisite, vaulted open plan living, kitchen and dining space, with the sitting area lying to the front and the kitchen to the back.

With a gorgeous L-shaped velvet sofa beautifully positioned to make the most of the views over Anglezarke Reservoir towards the West Pennine hills, this is a wonderful spot in which to relax, whether after a busy day exploring or simply on a lazy afternoon, catching up on some much-needed rest. The floor-to-ceiling glass doors open on to the balcony, to allow the soft summer breeze to drift in and the sound of birdsong to be your soundtrack. In addition, there's a Smart TV when you want to completely switch off, plus a Bluetooth speaker.

Towards the back of the room lies the kitchen, fully bespoke with blush pink cabinets and white worktops. Complete with everything you'll need from the oven, induction hob and freezer to the dishwasher, microwave and all-important Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother, it will satisfy the keenest of cooks. Just in front lies the upcycled Ercol dining table and chairs.

In addition, there's a utility room on the ground floor that houses the washing machine.

Sleeping and bathing

There are two gorgeous bedrooms to choose from, both en suite and on the ground floor.

The first bedroom, with breath-taking vaulted ceiling, boasts a king-sized Loaf French style bed, with stunning views from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows. There's also a door that leads out on to the sunny patio - the perfect spot for morning coffee when you wake up. Alongside plenty of storage, there's an en suite shower room.

The second bedroom has a wonderful zip-and-link bed, meaning it can be made up as twins or kept as a super king-sized bed, for flexible sleeping arrangements. With a chest of drawers, occasional chair, and Tom Raffield lightshade, this is a beautiful room with en suite bath and shower room. Both beds come swathed in luxurious White Company linen, cloud-soft bedding and sumptuous cushions and throws for a deep, blissful nights' sleep. Both en suites have heated rails to keep towels warm and fluffy, and there's underfloor heating throughout all the rooms.

Outdoor space

For outside living, there's a balcony that leads off the sitting room, a sunny spot with incredible views. Here you'll find a table and chairs for four, whilst outside bedroom one there's seating for two, should you wish to have some privacy. In addition, there's further seating with a barbeque.


There is private, off-road parking.

Set on the banks of Anglezarke Reservoir, the largest reservoir of Lancashire's 'Lake District', a chain of reservoirs than run from Abbey Village to Rivington, Anglezarke is perfectly positioned to explore this wonderful area. A great spot for walkers, there's a trail around the reservoir with beautiful views. Another fantastic spot is Rivington Gardens, with over 45 acres of terraces and paths to explore, named as one of Britain's forgotten gardens but now being restored to its former glory. The Rivington Cycle Route passes through Liverpool Castle, Rivington Hall Barn and Rivington Pike - so why not bring your bikes too? Yarrow Park is also highly recommended to discover on foot. Of course, there's also the West Pennine Moors, a 90-square-mile area of wild countryside, complete with historic villages and woodland. Expect spectacular views from Jubilee Tower - a definite must-visit! Further afield, the Forest of Bowland awaits, a stunning AONB. For foodies, you're spoilt for choice when it comes to places to eat and drink, such as Riverton Brewing Tap Room, the River Yew Tree Inn in Heath Charnock, or the café at Spring Cottage in nearby Rivington. For gin lovers, a visit to Brindle Distillery is a must, where they offer tours and workshops. History enthusiasts will love the areas rich past, where ancient homes await, such as Smithills Hall, a Grade I manor house set on the edge of the West Pennine moors, and pretty, traditional villages. This gorgeous retreat is also just 40 minutes from Manchester, and an hour from the Lake District and Liverpool.

Just wow! Welcome to this waterside retreat, a haven away from the everyday with so much to do on your doorstep - a must for explorers and lovers of the countryside - in a hidden part of England.
