The stunning waterfront Whitemoor Estate

Located near Barnoldswick, Whitemoor Estate has been described as perfect for country sports enthusiasts, offering oodles of space and moorland as well as fishing interests. Available as a whole at a guide price of £2.75m or in three lots, it is situated on the banks of the Whitemoor Reservoir, with the main home - the stone built Whinberry Boathouse - one of the area's nicest buildings.

With five bedrooms and a one bedroom guest annex, double moorings, and direct access to the water, the home is a dream. Up for a ramble? How does 139 acres of productive grassland and a small area of moorland sound? A fan of shooting? The estate has a long history in the sport, with rights covering about 711 acres. There's a reason Savills' Will Douglas has called this place "simply spectacular."
