Logwood Mill Farm is an 18th-century stone-built farmhouse steeped in local history which originally provided flour for the community.
Then later in the 19th century, it pulped logs for Calico Printers Association printworks at Brinscall for the dye via Blue Dye House a few hundred yards to the north.
Since the 19th century, the property has undergone many improvements and extensions, the most recent completed in 2011 to very high, tasteful standards by the present owners.
It enjoys en-suite bathrooms to all four bedrooms and a 24ft lounge.
The house is warmed by an oil-fired stove, the windows are all double glazed and the drainage is by septic tank.
There are four good reception rooms in addition to the modern breakfast kitchen.
The property stands in around eight acres (3.2 hectares) with two excellent fields for pasture, and there is a stableyard and paddock, post and rail.
From these field, there are beautiful panoramic views over the countryside and the West Pennine Moors.
The property is situated within a small hamlet in a lovely valley or fold where Brinscall Brook meanders through to White Coppice on the way to the River Yarrow and the sea.
It is accessed half a mile down a private road.
