Particulars of Sale

Loud Mythom

Thornley | Near Chipping | Lancashire | PR3 2TS

£1,100,000 - SALE AGREED

Loud Mythom is an ancient steading situated adjacent to the River Loud at its junction with the River Hodder, near Doeford Bridge, in the heart of the Hodder Valley. This is a very rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a small sporting estate comprising main house, annex and buildings, 15.06 acres of freehold land with 9.66 acres offering equestrian or grazing potential and 95.89 acres of adjoining sporting rights including some of the finest and most picturesque fishing on the River Hodder. The main Grade II Listed house is believed to date back to the mid-seventeenth century and has numerous traces of past architectural significance suggesting the presence of a much older habitation. The attached barn and shippon are later additions with the barn converted into the annex in 1990 and the shippon converted in 1992. Remarkably, Loud Mythom has remained in the same family’s ownership through descent for over 300 years making this the first time the property has been offered for sale since the end of seventeenth century.

The River Hodder is well known for its Brown Trout and Grayling fishing and notably, the property includes the ‘Forty Foot Pool’ on the River Hodder, which is significant for producing Sea Trout and the occasional Salmon – indeed, the record for the largest salmon ever caught on the River Hodder was achieved here!
