  • "Market Lounge is ab amazing place to stay and can highly recommend."

    From the moment we entered the apartment we felt immediately at home. It has all the facilities you need, the most comfortable bed, cosy lounge with views and such a central location. We received a lovely surprise on arrival with cheese, wine, chocolates and other treats which were very much appreciated. We found Clitheroe to be one of the friendliest towns we have ever visited and is fast becoming the 'Food Capital Of Lancashire ' well deserved. Great place! This is a five star apartment and we thoroughly enjoyed our week here and hope to return as soon as possible! Thank you David and Pauline for your hospitality. Donna & Steve

  • "I can honestly say Market Lounge is the best holiday property we have stayed in."

    Credit to the owners David and Pauline. The video prior to our stay was a lovely idea. We were welcomed by David on arrival, and was assured we could contact them if necessary during our stay. Their holiday home is spotless, comfortable, and in a lovely location. The home has adequate kitchen equipment and is not cluttered with unnecessary items. It was good to be able to have empty cupboards to put our belongings. Thank you once again David and Pauline for a lovely 1st class stay in your beautiful home.

  • "Super Apartment, all the mod cons you could require."

    We stayed for a week over Xmas 2023 and enjoyed every minute. The location is excellent,smack bang in the centre of clitheroe overlooking the Market and the forest of bowland beyond. Lovely and quiet in the apartment, great for a lay in. Many bars ,shops and restaurants right on doorstep. We spent many an hour gazing out at the view from the huge french style windows. Owners were super. Very friendly and nothing too much trouble. A very informative video was supplied by the owners prior to arrival about finding the apartment and parking etc. I would not hesitate to recommend, and return in the future.

  • "Our Market Lounge stay was wonderful."

    The property is modern and spotlessly clean. Reserved car parking is within a minute's walk. The owners, David and Pauline, check in to make sure everything is ok and if they can help in any way (which they did by recommending a brilliant local garage when we had a small problem with our car). The apartment is also very well located with a view over the local market and very close to the shops, bars and restaurants. I think I've found my new favourite pub in the country - the Beer Hall (with the bonus of half price ales on Mondays and Tuesdays). We had never before been to Clitheroe or the Forest of Bowland but we are definitely coming back next year to stay here again.

  • "Pauline and David are wonderful hosts."

    They sent me a video explaining where to park and an overview of the flat. Very welcome. The flat is in a lovely spot overlooking the market and all the amenities were perfect. WiFi was great. The bed comfy as anything. Good quality towels and bedding and all the utilities you`d need. Lovely bathroom with toiletries supplied though I had my own. Very central in town and would certainly stay again and will do, should I be working in the area again. 10/10
