Our South Lancashire office covers a fantastic area, from Withnell to the south Lancashire border and into Cheshire. We are so pleased that some of the prettiest villages are closer to home, including Rufford, Croston & Scarisbrick.
Croston hosts a plethora of picture postcard cottages, historic homes, a church dating back to William the Conqueror and a cobbled packhorse bridge, erected in the 15th century, across the River Yarrow. One of Lancashire’s most frequently photographed villages Croston is surrounded by beautiful countryside with an abundance of walks, village pubs and a convenience store. Well connected by rail, bus or car, it is the ideal village for a commute… not forgetting the OFSTED outstanding schools! Croston is a beautiful village and we have sold many lovely homes there.
Scarisbrick is the largest parish in Lancashire with approximately six semi-rural hamlets nestled within open countryside. Home to the historic Scarisbrick Hall, Scarisbrick can claim to be the place where, the one and only, John Lennon had his first job! It is also home to our own sales negotiator, Alex Blundell, if you have any queries about the area or even the best pubs to go to or the best countryside walks, he is the man to speak to.
Rufford has been a popular location in recent months for a lot of our buyers. Another picturesque village steeped in history with Rufford Old Hall and Rufford New Hall, both built for the long established Hesketh family. The Rufford branch of the Leeds-Liverpool canal passes through the east of the village, following the path of the River Douglas before joining Tarleton. There are two marinas off the canal, Fettlers Wharf and St Mary’s, which both have popular cafes to enjoy.
We have had great success with the sales of rural homes around the Southwest Lancashire villages in recent months. Barn Conversions have been increasingly popular with many having to go to best and final offers.
