    “Incredibly peaceful stay”

    What an amazing barn conversion. The entire set of holiday homes are stunning. Beautifully presented and finished to a high quality. The staff are friendly and attentive, very discreet when monitoring the hot tubs. Whitewell cottage has been designed to be ideal for wheelchair users with care support.

    What an amazing barn conversion. The entire set of holiday homes are stunning. Beautifully presented and finished to a high quality. The staff are friendly and attentive, very discreet when monitoring the hot tubs. Whitewell cottage has been designed to be ideal for wheelchair users with care support. The kitchen has most everything you need (just remember to take salt, pepper and vinegar if you want chips) the owners are fantastic and we suggested some extra bits and bob's which would be helpful and those were ordered before we left, meaning they really do listen to you. The cottage was so quiet and we had deer visit the field behind us making for an extra special stay. The pheasants were also chattering all week giving you that authentic countryside retreat feel. It's an ideal base for visiting Preston city (home of Beeches Fine Chocolates, as sold by Mark's and Spencer) and the lake district, colne valley is also nearby with the flagship headquarters of Boundry Mills only 25 mins away from the cottage. We had some friends over for tea and this was not a problem with the overflow car park available to us. The cottage is all on one level, the disabled accessible guest room has a large wet room en suite with grab rails and shower chair. Towels and robes were provided as well as tea and coffee and some wood for the wood burner in the living room. This cottage is ideal for full time wheelchair users with care support, independent wheelchair users may struggle as the hob and kitchen is at standard height though they are designed for you to get your knees under. The king size beds can be made up as twin rooms. We had a fantastic stay, so peaceful and calm so we will be back.

About the location

RIBCHESTER

Blackburn 7 miles; Clitheroe 9 miles; Preston 11 miles.

The village of Ribchester is encircled by green hills and lies in a curve of the River Ribble mid way between Preston and Clitheroe. It is a pleasant jumble of multi-coloured stone cottages in long twisting terraces. It has three pubs, the White Bull, dated 1707, the Black Bull and the Ribchester Arms and the award-winning Chinese restaurant Yu and You Restaurant and Bar. The White Bull has a porch canopy supported by four columns said to be from Roman ruins. The village takes its name from the River Ribble and the fort of Bremetennacum (the walled town by the Ribble). For this reason, Ribchester has been seen to have a purely Roman foundation, but excavations in 1977 showed that settlements going back to the middle Bronze Age existed in the area. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Ribble Valley is a rural haven of spectacular scenery, diverse natural habitats and historical legend, a place of almost incomparable peace, where adults and children alike can enjoy the simple pleasures of the outdoors without the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Longridge is easily reached, a unique town with plenty of interesting shops and tempting eateries, described as 'big on character' by the Sunday Times and ranked in their '101 Best Places To Live In Britain'. Nearby Clitheroe is famed for its specialist shops of all types, including, amongst others, a sausage shop that sells over seventy-five different varieties! A gourmet's paradise, with award-winning restaurants and country hotels situated throughout the valley, and annual events including a number of agricultural shows and day festivals of all types, this fantastic location has plenty to offer at any time of year!
