The property

Overlooking the village square of Waddington in the Ribble Valley is this fabulous, end-terrace cottage, William's Cottage.

Boasting access to the outdoor delights of the Bowland Forest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is the perfect dwelling for a group of four's getaway to the country.

Head inside to be taken in by its fabulous décor; Cook up a storm in the kitchen, complete with high-end kitchen ware and integrated appliances, including a dishwasher and washer/dryer.

Get together around the farmhouse table and enjoy a delectable dinner accompanied by a refreshing glass of wine; why not take this time to socialise and catch up with your group about your outdoor escapades?

Continue to the fabulous sitting room and relax on its stylish seating as you switch on the stove and TV for an evening packed with entertainment.

The first floor of the cottage is home to two thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, including a king-size room with green touches, ample storage and a chair that is perfect for a spot of reading; further down the corridor is a small double with views over a quaint cobbled street.

The bathroom can also be found on this floor and is adorned with sleek, marble tiling and features a bath for you to unwind in after a day of climbing and walking.

The cottage is in a prime location, with three excellent gastro pubs, the Higher Buck, the Lower Buck and the Waddington Arms all located just a short stroll away, and a well-stocked post office less than a mile away.

Be sure to visit the characterful Inn at Whitewell, which offers alfresco dining with fantastic views in the summer, and toasty fires in the colder months.
