The property reminds one of arriving at a relaxing spa destination for a long weekend of peace, tranquillity and uninterrupted views. Park Farm, on which the property sits on the fringes was originally created as a model farm in the centre of a large park on behalf of Sir Thomas Hesketh (circa 1798 – 1801). ‘The Barn’ which resides in the original grounds of Rufford New Hall, is situated on a large private plot that provides seclusion, without isolation. Rufford itself is a great family-friendly village, and is 5½ miles north east of Ormskirk’s historic market town. A largely rural parish Rufford is famed for attractions such as Mere Sands Wood Nature Reserve, the National Trust property Rufford Old Hall, and St. Mary’s Marina, which now includes a lovely eatery courtesy of the waterside café. In the early 20th century the village was described as “one of the prettiest in South Lancashire.” Rufford’s Church of England Primary School is located nearby and is a small family-orientated school that prides itself on offering a secure, welcoming and caring environment. Bishop Rawstorne Church of England Academy, located in the nearby village of Croston, has been recognised nationally for its outstanding achievements through designation as a Teaching School.
