    “We loved Marl House.”

    The situation is just perfect, overlooking the wonderful hills of Bowland. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking on the AGA, but we were also lucky enough with the weather to be able to make use of the BBQ. The outdoor patio area is lovely - we whiled away a good few hours out there and down by the pond watching the sun setting. Bliss! ...

    The situation is just perfect, overlooking the wonderful hills of Bowland. The house is well equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed cooking on the AGA, but we were also lucky enough with the weather to be able to make use of the BBQ. The outdoor patio area is lovely - we whiled away a good few hours out there and down by the pond watching the sun setting. Bliss! We enjoyed pub meals at The Parker's Arms and at The Waddington Arms during our week's stay. It was easy to organise a Clitheroe based taxi to take us to Waddington. Thank you Sarah- a real pleasure to be custodian for a week of your beautiful house. We'll be back!

The property

Clitheroe 7.6 miles.

Nestled in Cow Ark, near to Clitheroe, within the Ribble Valley, is this detached period farmhouse, Marl Hill House.

The property dates back to 1722 and touches of its unique history can be found throughout, whilst still offering a contemporary base for the whole family to enjoy.

Step into one of two sitting rooms, both of which have a homely and traditional woodburning stove and a selection of inviting seating, with the benefit of a TV for your entertainment.

You can find a dining room where the whole family can gather for an evening meal, or bring a board game from home and enjoy a friendly game.

Discover a kitchen/diner which has all the necessary appliances for some home-cooking with a small breakfast table to plan the day's events at as you sip your morning coffee.

The property rests across three floors in total, with two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom on the first floor, and a further double on the second floor with it's own en-suite shower room.

Here, you can get some much needed rest for the days ahead and benefit from those magnificent views across the Forest of Bowland AONB; an idyllic scene to wake up to each morning.

To the rear of the property is an enclosed lawned garden and patio area, complete with patio furniture to sit at during the summer months and indulge in a refreshing glass of wine, or dine alfresco whilst your pet stretches their legs.

Resting into the heart of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are a network of trails you can join for all manner of outdoor activities, particularly walking, hiking and cycling.

Further afield is the bustling town of Clitheroe where you can visit some wonderful historic attractions such as its Grade I listed Clitheroe Castle and its on-site museum.
