The property is located in the historic village of Newchurch in Rossendale and is one of the only two pubs located in the village. The Boars head is located just outside Rawtenstall town centre and is therefore only minutes from the major supermarkets in Rossendale including Tesco and Asda.

The village is linked via the M66/A56 and M65 to Manchester, Blackburn and Burnley, with the nearest major city of Manchester 20 miles directly south.


The property was built as a pub in 1674 and is therefore one of the oldest surviving buildings in the area. The property comprises a substantial three storey mid terraced public house constructed of stone under a recently re-roofed pitched concrete tiled roof. To the rear there is a three storey out-rigger of similar construction as well as further single storey out-rigger of coursed stone and brickwork elevations under a pitched slated roof.

Externally, the property includes a substantial flagged beer garden at the rear of the property which boasts views over the Rossendale valley and St Nicholas Church. Internally the property provides, to the lower ground floor, vaulted beer cellar with barrel drop from rear of property as well as further store. The ground floor of the property provides large bar and lounge area with central bar and perimeter seating, commercial kitchen, male and female WC’s. The first floor provides two bedrooms, lounge, office, WC, bathroom and kitchen, with second floor being open plan and cleared.
