    “Hillcrest Croft is in the most stunning location with walks from the door.”

    Everything we needed for a week stay was provided. Despite the cold nights the heating kept us cosy and warm. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We hope to return for another stay.

The property

A delightful, wooden-clad lodge, built by the owner himself, this countryside cottage offers spectacular scenery of rolling hills, remarkable sunsets, and even with goats in the neighbouring field offering you the ultimate countryside experience.

Resting on the owner's working farm on the outskirts of the idyllic village of Chipping at the heart of the Ribble Valley, there's no better choice for an escape as a couple or small family to this beautiful spot in Lancashire.

Take two steps up onto the decking of this all-ground-floor abode, soaking in your scenery before stepping into the spacious open-plan living space; flick on the electric fire to warm the room and bring a homely aura, before settling down on the spacious sofa wrapping around the room.

Move to the plush seating of the dining area to enjoy all your home-made meals, the kitchen area assisting in all your home-cooking hosting a convenient electric oven and gas hob and a fridge with an ice box, perfect for a self-catered stay.

At the end of each day of adventure seek comfort in one of the two inviting bedrooms, choosing from the master double and the accompanying modest twin room, offering a lovely layout for those with little ones.

Begin your day with a refreshing rinse in the shower room, with a separate cloakroom offering plenty of preparation space to prepare, before stepping out onto the decking and soaking in your magnificent surroundings with a coffee in hand.

Those who can't leave the house without their horse friend will delight in the fact that the property has access to it's very own horse stables, a fabulous asset to the property for both you and your animals.
