12 Main Street

Full of period charm, this attractive 2 bedroom character cottage is located in the heart of the popular village of Hornby. On the northern edge of the Forest of Bowland, Hornby is surrounded by stunning countryside, yet just 15 minutes by car to the M6 at Lancaster. 12 Main Street will appeal to buyers seeking a permanent home in the village, whilst also having very obvious appeal to investors: the property has a track record as a residential let and would make a superb AirBnB holiday home investment. The property has scope for some updating and has the added benefit of a large garden with versatile outbuilding.

Available with no chain, viewing is highly recommended.

In brief, the accommodation comprises: cosy cottage living room with period fireplace; generous second reception room; ground floor bathroom; modern fitted kitchen and useful rear porch with storage. Stairs rise from the second reception to a small landing, providing access to the 2 bedrooms - both of which are good-sized doubles.

Outside, the cottage has a large back garden with mature shrubs and trees. A detached outbuilding is currently configured as a utility room and cloakroom, and could easily be adapted to provide a home office or hobby room. The garden is nicely secluded and has a patio seating area. The cottages and shops in the row share a right of access across the back.


Hornby is a charming village set in the rolling countryside of the Lune Valley with easy access to the M6, Lancaster and Kirkby Lonsdale. The village has a range of amenities including shops, Post Office/tea room (next door), GP Surgery, swimming pool and well-regarded primary school.
