About the property

House in Abbeystead, Forest of Bowland, Lancashire, England - Stunning And Peaceful Location In The Heart Of The Pennines And 45 Minutes From The Lake District

In which ever direction you look at Higher Lee, your eyes are met with the breathtaking beauty - the exquisite 17th-century façade, the beautifully maintained formal gardens, the willow maze, the gently bubbling stream. For children, the 2 acre garden enclosed by dry stone walls offers a self-contained paradise to explore (younger guests should be supervised at the stream). Beyond the garden, the majestic beauty of the Trough of Bowland lies waiting to be discovered. And if that isn't enough, Lake Windermere is less than an hour's drive away.

About Mrs Entwistle

The Entwistle family live close to the property on a working farm. Mrs Entwistle runs Higher Lee and is always available for any queries you may have. She has lived in the area for over forty years and has extensive knowledge and affection for this beautiful undiscovered part of England.

Mrs Entwistle purchased this house in 1970

Why Mrs Entwistle chose Ribble Valley

This family house was Mrs Entwistles parent's home for over thirty years and we are delighted to offer it now as a rental property. It has been rented out for over ten years and the majority of people who have stayed at Higher Lee will always return.

What makes this house unique

Beautiful landscape away from the crowds of the Lake District. Stunning scenery, breathtaking walks and a very warm welcome.
