Steeped in history, Entwistle Hall is believed to have been built around 1200, with the original Hall being occupied by the Entwistle family for over 300 years; the most famous of the Entwistle family was Bertine Entwistle who was reportedly knighted on the battlefield of Agincourt by King Henry V. The original Hall was submerged under the Wahoh reservoir and the Hall as it stands today, was built in the 1600s; its south-facing front still retaining such original Tudor features as mullioned windows with dripstone headings.
This stunning property, accessed via a private lane, offers a wealth of charm and character and is set in approximately 0.26 acres of mature and established gardens. To the interior of the home, on the ground floor, there is a sitting room, dining room, a country dining kitchen, utility washroom, pantry, shower room, and a double bedroom. The first-floor accommodation comprises two large bedrooms (one ensuite) and a playroom/study currently furnished as a bedroom, although the reduced height ceiling prevents it from being labelled a bedroom. There is also a family bathroom, plus walk-in wardrobe and storage cupboards off the landing.
Externally, the home features a courtyard of traditional Lancashire Edgworth brick to the front of the property, which provides a parking area, and a detached wall garden. The walled garden boasts a manicured lawn with landscaping and a summerhouse with water and electricity supplies.
The rear of the property comprises a flagged patio area with an abundance of trees, mature shrubs with foliage, and raised flower beds, providing an idyllic backdrop for al fresco dining and entertaining. A gate gives way to further parking for two vehicles.
Entwistle Hall offers families a rare and unique opportunity to walk in the footsteps of our Tudor and Elizabethan ancestors.

Local walks and wildlife and reservoirs
Surrounded by picturesque and scenic walks, the property is within walking distance of the Turton & Entwistle reservoir, situated in the nearby village of Edgworth. At the time of its construction in 1832, Entwistle Dam was the highest dam in Britain and today visitors can enjoy a tranquil and leisurely 3-mile walk around the conifer-edged perimeter of the reservoir. The neighbouring Wahoh reservoir offers a circular walk edged on the eastern side by the Witton Weavers Way, taking in waterside paths and sections of woodland with views of the impressive Entwistle viaduct. Continuing a little further along the Witton Weavers Way will bring you to Jumbles Country Park to the south.
With Entwistle station 0.2 miles away, Bromley Cross station 2.7 miles, and Darwen station 3.8 miles, Entwistle Hall benefits from good transport links, allowing commuters to travel to Manchester, Blackburn, and Bolton.
