The former renowned Newdrop Inn is located in an elevated situation with fantastic rural views yet only 2 ½ miles from Longridge, 6 miles from the market town of Clitheroe and just 15 minutes drive to junction 31a of the M6 motorway network, making it an excellent, accessible location. The property is set within the heart of the Ribble Valley, just a short distance from Stonyhurst College and a number of other popular schools.

The Newdrop Inn dates in part back to the mid-19th century. Originally known as the White Cross Inn it was renamed The Newdrop Inn in the mid-20th century when it was sold from the former Dutton Manor Estate.

The property has the benefit of planning consent for Change of Use to form five bespoke, large residential dwellings under application number 3/2020/0215, dated 10th August 2020.

From the drawings included within the application, the proposal is to convert the main public house and attached barns into a range of three, four and five bedroom bespoke properties.
