The property

Ribchester 3.8 miles.

Perched in the small village of Hurst Green near Ribchester in Lancashire, is this fantastic stone-built terraced cottage, 7 Smithy Row.

Boasting a scenic location in the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a contemporary décor and easy access to local amenities, 7 Smithy Row is a delightful dwelling for a family of four or two couples looking to explore Lancashire.

Be welcomed into the spacious sitting room, where you can look forward to curling up on the four-seater sofa with a bowl of popcorn and selecting the evening's entertainment from the wall-mounted TV.

Rustle up mouth-watering meals in the well-equipped kitchen/diner with electric cooker and hob, fridge/freezer and dishwasher for keeping your space tidy.

Gather around the dining table and tuck-in to a delicious meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

Savour the last of the day’s sunshine in the private garden, where you can continue the evening with drinks.

As the evening cools, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you can pour in the bubbles and indulge in a soothing soak in the bath with your favourite book.

Pop on your pyjamas and take your pick of two beautifully decorated bedrooms, a king-size and a double to catch your rest in.

Wake-up with a steaming cup of coffee and a refreshing shower, before getting ready to set out and explore.

Venture to the nearby village of Ribchester where you can treat the family to a scrumptious pub lunch at the Ribchester Arms, White Bull or Black Bull, or sample the delights of the award-winning Chinese restaurant, Yu and You Restaurant and Bar.

Delve into the village’s Roman heritage at the Ribchester Roman Museum or explore the fascinating 2nd-century ruins of a former Roman bathhouse.

Be sure to check out the wonders of the Forest of Bowland, with stunning scenic walks, the Bowland Wilf Boar Park where you can meet and feed the local wildlife, and the historic 16th-century Browsholme Hall and Tithe Barn, with elegant interior and lush gardens.

From here, make your way to Clitheroe, where you can make a stop at the Clitheroe Castle Museum, which houses a 12th-century keep, interesting displays and vast grounds.

On sunny days, head to Brungerley Park which rests along the River Ribble for a lovely walk and picnic spot.

Just a little further is the town of Blackburn, here you will find an impressive cathedral, the Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery and a range of activities including golf, ice skating and bowling.

About the location


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!
