  • "A homely, spotless cottage with everything you would need for a self catering holiday."

    Lovely touches with fresh flowers, wine and welcome drinks. Adjacent parking was very handy in a busy town. Lots of amenities close by, buses, supermarket and pub. Thank you for our stay.

  • "This is a lovely, comfortable cottage, ideally situated right in the centre of Clitheroe and yet in a quiet location."

    We have stayed here 4 times now and have never thought of anything that could be provided and isn't or that could be more comfortable.

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback Property Owner

  • "This cottage is perfect."

    Everything you need and plenty of it. The beds are extremely comfortable. I was worried about it being behind a pub, but I never heard a sound all night, even with the window open. The Market place is right behind with a Market on most days. Clitheroe is a booming little town with lots of shops.

    It’s warm and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. Parking is very easy and its location in the centre of Clitheroe is great. The market is almost on the doorstep and the pubs and cafes/ restaurants are welcoming. Despite being right in the town centre we have never been disturbed by noise or traffic. Clitheroe is a very friendly town with great walking in lovely countryside only a short distance away.

    Close to the centre of town but very quiet. Parking spaces alongside was a bonus. The cottage was well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing comfortable stay. Two double bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, Smart TV and Blu Ray player and excellent Wi-Fi. Great welcome pack was much appreciated. Can't fault it and will hopefully return again

    Many thanks to Claire for her kindness in view of the awful weather and for the extras she provided, (the Prosecco was very much appreciated) we couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.

We would certainly like to return as there are so many interesting places to visit in the area and The Stables is the perfect place to set out from. Thank you Claire.

    Close to town centre. We didn't need to cook here as we were staying over for a wedding however, it looked like there was everything you'd need. Cottage has old characteristics with modern facilities. Looked like relatively new kitchen and bathroom. Very comfy. Tea, coffee, milk etc were very welcome. Only downside is that it was advertised with 2 parking spaces, which we needed, however we couldn't fit the 2nd car in but luckily we were still able to park close by. Would stay again if needed to be in the area again

    Public transport (train and bus interchange) is an easy 5 minute walk away. Shops, bars, restaurants - minutes away. Look straight up to the tower of Clitheroe Castle from one of the comfy leather sofas in the living room. The ground floor has a well equipped, clean and spacious kitchen diner, with a proper dining table and chairs - thank you. Everything you need for self catering, with nice crockery and glassware. Spacious, warm and comfortable lounge. Upstairs, two immaculate and comfortable double bedrooms, one is particularly spacious. Good beds, pillows, linen and towels (even face flannels). The huge bathroom has separate bath and shower. This is a cosy, but not poky, cottage. The central hearing kept the whole place toasty warm in the cool evenings. Good, safe car parking by the side of the cottage. Lots of nice little touches by the owners, such as quality hand wash and lotion, welcome pack so you can have a fresh brew (with lovely biscuits) when you arrive or (my preference) a glass of chilled fizz! A real gem of a place. Highly recommended.
