  • "Excellent holiday property, but garden needs attention."

    The overgrown grass & weeds were a surprise, considering how well the inside looked. Also the description of a fridge/freezer is inaccurate. We have a fridge/freezer at home. This was a fridge with a small freezer compartment. Clitheroe a good place to visit, with interchange bus depot next to train station, also many excellent shops. It also has a very interesting Castle Museum next to the Castle remains. ,

    Thank you for your comments. Sorry you felt that the garden needed attention. If we were made aware of these comments during your stay it would have been in our best interest to resolve them for you. We mow and weed the garden every fortnight. Sometimes weeds grow very quickly during this time but we will monitor this moving forward. I have updated the fridge/freezer description to make it clear for future bookings. I am glad you were happy with the appearance of the inside of the property and that you enjoyed the location. Property Owner

    Easy walk into town with a great selection of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The Bowland Forest and surrounding countryside provide great walks and scenery. A very enjoyable weeks holiday.

  • "This is a wonderful house, it is super comfortable, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay."

    Lucy is super responsive, warm and friendly. You also get amazing views from the house, you can see the castle from the second bedroom and great views of St Mary Magdalene's Church from the kitchen. The church is worth a visit!

    How fabulous!! Thank you for your review. We hope to see you again. Glad you enjoyed your stay! X Property Owner

  • "The house was exactly as described, really clean and well equipped."

    The bed was very comfortable. Fantastic location with great views of the town and so near the fields up to Pendle hill. Totally enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend. Lucy was really friendly and responsive.

  • "This is an excellent property."

    It was immaculately clean, with good quality bedding, towels and general furnishings. A welcome pack including wine, chocolates, crisps and slippers was a lovely gesture, along with supplies of tea, coffee and milk. The owner sent an excellent pack of information beforehand and was responsive to email and text queries. We loved it so much we were lucky to be able to extend our stay. Clitheroe is in a great area for sightseeing and the house itself is within walking distance of local shops, pubs, restaurants, Clitheroe Castle and so much more. Great views from the house of the Castle and church in the town centre. Would highly recommend this property. A great break away was had

  • "A beautifully well presented and spotlessly clean house."

    We stayed here for two weeks while working in the area and was very pleased with the accommodation. The treat of wine and chocolate that greeted us on arrival was a touching thought and very much enjoyed after a long drive. The kitchen was well equipped affording us to cook evening meals without hinderance, and the bathroom was great to clean up in before resting in a very comfortable bed in a lovely relaxing bedroom. This I’d say is just perfection for spending time away from home.

    Hi Matt Many thanks for your positive feedback. I am glad The White House met your expectations. Anytime you are back in the area, you are welcome to book again… Lucy Property Owner

  • "Beautiful and comfortable accommodation in a very quiet part of Clitheroe - we didn't hear a sound, not even the children going to school next door."

    The house had everything one could ask for - except a hair dryer! It's the first time I have travelled without one as it seems to be a standard piece of equipment in other Sykes cottages. However I really needed a new one, so the lack prompted me to go to Boots and purchase one, which was no problem as the town is only five minutes walk away. We had a lovely week.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is now a hairdryer available at the property. Property Owner

    The welcome pack was a nice touch... thanks It has everything you need to make it a home from home. Great location for both the coastal attractions as well as the location countryside and the delightful town of Clitheroe. The only slight criticism was the Internet connection was a little intermittent and could only just stream movies. We would book again. Many thanks Mark

  • "A lovely' comfortable, sparklingly clean house, in a very convenient position in Clitheroe with a Tesco just down the road and all the lovely individual shops and Clitheroe Castle and Park within very easy walking distance."

    The owners are extremely helpful with anything you need to know. But the best feature of the house is the view from the downstairs which looks straight over the town to the Forest of Bowland beyond - with the sunsets and changing weather it is a constant changing scene. We loved the Ribble Valley and this was an excellent base.

  • "The White House is a delightful property set in a beautiful area."

    You don't have to travel far from the house to find pretty villages full of stone cottages and good pubs serving delicious food. The White House itself is beautifully presented with a homely feel and we felt completely relaxed there. We particularly enjoyed the view of the sunsets over the roofs of Clitheroe.

  • "The White House was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday."

    Set in a quiet area of town, the house was so clean and comfortable with excellent facilities for self-catering. We loved the quality furnishings and crisp bed linen and soft towels too. It was clear that the owners had given a lot of thought to covid safe measures which helped to dispel the concerns we had about staying in holiday accommodation during the pandemic. We would love to return in the future.

    Cosy and modern interior which is exactly like the pictures! Would definately stay here again. Owners were extremely helpful and messaged before our stay as well as during :) Also include a handy little guidebook which is cool. The only small thing to mention was a few necessities such as big bags/toiletries could have been provided, but thats just nitpicking. Would reccommend to anybody looking for a break in sunny Clitheroe

    The owners kindly sent us more information and were generous with recommendations during our stay, as well as leaving a nice hamper for us upon arrival. The property is spotless and facilities are everything you could possibly need. Any requests ie laundry were easy to follow and all amenities such as washing machine/heating/shower came with useful ‘how to use’ info in the PowerPoint sent before arrival. I would 10/10 recommend this property for a short/long term stay and would 100% stay again in the future, hopefully for longer than our previous 2-night stay!
