About Booth Cottage

The hamlet of Booth Bank is one of the most sought-after places to live within the upper Colne Valley due to its fantastic setting on the hillside between Slaithwaite and Marsden with views to die for. Booth Cottage is full of character and hints of its history with evidence of former doorways, a barn arch, and grooves in the stone flagged floor of the kitchen show where the shop counter was fixed many decades ago when it was a shop serving the hillside residents. More recently, it has been beautifully renovated and extended into the enviable home you see today and has some quirky features including a bridge over the dining room connecting the east and west wings of the first floor. Amazingly for a semi-rural property, it has all mains services, and a gas fired central heating system. This nicely presented home offers a large dining kitchen, utility room, downstairs W.C., dining hall, lounge, 4 double bedrooms on the first floor, 3 of which have en suite facilities, house bathroom, and staircase up to the attic room offering a flexible space to be utilised to suite your own needs.

Booth Cottage has beautifully tended gardens to all sides with a huge sun terrace ideal for outside entertaining. There is a large parking area with access to a substantial double garage located beneath the sun terrace. The gardens are described in more detail later in this brochure.

If you can tear yourself away from the comfort of this wonderful countryside retreat, there are a good variety of shops, bars, restaurants, and train station in both the nearby villages of Slaithwaite and Marsden, both of which are just a short drive away or perhaps get onto the canal towpath and take a pleasant walk to either village.
