  • "We had a lovely stay in this warm and comfortable cottage, which was ideal as a base for 3 generations of our family."

    Plenty of space for everyone, comfy beds, and a homely feel. Very pretty and well maintained garden! Amazing walks on the doorstep. We will definitely stay here again, many thanks!

  • "Comfortable, cosy, well equipped and clean house."

    Lovely back garden although the ropey weather meant we didn't have many opportunities to enjoy it more! Located in a picturesque village, but close enough to enjoy bigger towns and cities.

  • "Chipping is really lovely as is the cottage."

    Owner allowed us to use the garage for our cycles. There is no dishwasher but otherwise was well equipped. Great area for walking and cycling - very quiet.

    Thanks for your feedback, we have taken it on board and now had a dishwasher installed. Property Owner

  • "Minor niggles, e."

    G. no non-stick frying pan, upstairs floorboards creak when someone is moving around in middle of night, so could disturb others, and adjacent car parking virually impossible. Better info needed about getting overnight permits to park on village car park. (my daughter was penalised because her on-line payment failed to be registered, though I believe this was recified). Fridge could do with being larger and better positioned. Otherwise, very satisfied indeed with cottage and surrounding beautiful area.

    Thanks for the feedback about the cottage. A new larger fridge has been installed. Full details of parking arrangements including overnight parking permits for the village are included in the Cottage information pack. Property Owner

  • "Cottage was spacious, clean, comfortable and ideally situated in what is a very sweet and peaceful village."

    Beautiful outlook, backing on to the school field. Lovely front and back garden and it's very own parking space. Both pubs, very well, both serve great food and at the time of year we went were very warm. The Cobbled Corner cafe again great food, we had breakfast. The Farm shop friendly and welcoming having everything you need. Even a vegan shelf. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Springfield cottage and Sykes Cottages.

    It was a comfortable and clean cottage with a very homey feel. The open fire was a great added touch. We loved our country walks in Chipping and eating and drinking in the historic Sun Inn.

  • "Lovely cottage in a lovely village, in a lovely area."

    The mattress on the double bed was a bit bouncy and creaky, it did keep us awake sometimes. Other than that, loved it.

    Thank you for your feedback, we take any feedback from customers seriously. We have now replaced the bed & mattress with a new king size bed. Reports are it is very comfy and not at all creaky!! Property Owner

The property

This delightful stone-built cottage is one in a row of three cottages, situated right in the heart of the village of Chipping, with a beautiful, private rear garden and patio.

Access to the property, is either along the path running at the front of all three properties, or via the little metal gate off the main road, up the snicket and in through the wooden garden gate.

Ideally situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty this property is ideal for couples or families looking to explore this scenic area.

The cottage is well-equipped and has a modern kitchen complete with a breakfast table for two.

There is a separate dining room where everyone can gather together over a family meal and chat over the day’s events, and the sofa bed in this room adds extra flexibility for an additional occasional guest.

Enjoy the open fire and its cosy atmosphere in the comfortable sitting room or step outside to enjoy a refreshing drink on the sunny patio.

Upstairs there are three pleasant bedrooms and a modern family bathroom.

Situated in the historic village of Chipping in the scenic Ribble Valley, you are only a few steps from the village pubs.

Whilst you are in the Sun Inn discover the story of colourful Lizzie Dean at this haunted pub and enjoy the hospitality at the Tillotsons, and if you do happen to count, there are definitely more steps on the way home!

Chipping is ideally placed as it has easy access to the dramatic beauty of the Lake District, the historic town of Lancaster, the bright lights of Blackpool and the seaside charm at Lytham and Morecambe.

Being on the edge of the ancient Forest of Bowland, Chipping boasts many beautiful local walks.

A trip up Parlick Hill and maybe watching the hand gliders catching the thermals is fun; galloping home down the hill, at speed, is even better!

The valley of the Trough of Bowland is close by, a stunning Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, with dramatic scenery and an amazing spot for a walk, a cycle or a picnic.

A visit to the Inn at Whitewell is always a treat, and you might be able to do some celebrity spotting whilst you are there.

For the cycling enthusiast there is an opportunity to don your lycra (or not) and discover some hidden gems with a variety of circuitous routes, taking in moors, hills, coasts and cafés on the way.

Just outside Chipping, The Wild Boar Park (please check their website in advance) is a popular spot for children as it offers a play area, hand feeding the animals, tractor rides, as well as wild boars, so hand feed the lambs in spring and enjoy making dens in the bales of hay!

A little further afield is the market town of Clitheroe where a trip to the castle and museum on the hill is an interesting day out.

An ideally located property with plenty of things to do for everyone.
