The property

Clitheroe 5.7 miles.

This quaint mid-terrace cottage lies in the heart of the village of Hurst Green, close to Clitheroe on the outskirts of the Forest of Bowland AONB.

This scenic area engulfs the property, looking onto the Village Arms Houses, offering panoramic scenes of rambling hills and trees, making a tranquil retreat for couples or a small family looking to escape everyday life.

The welcoming sitting room is the ideal place to relax after a day of walking, complete with a sofa and an armchair arranged in front of the flat screen TV, as well as a woodburning stove for those brisk winter months.

Whip up delicious meals in the amply-equipped kitchen; whether it be a hearty breakfast or sumptuous supper, it comes with all the essentials for a self-catered break.

Upstairs occupies the bedrooms, comprised of a double and single bedded with trundle bed, accommodating for families or couples alike.

Begin each morning with a refreshing shower before sipping on your morning coffee in the rear garden, planning out how to spend the remainder of the holiday.

The rural village of Hurst Green offers a few local pubs and other useful amenities, with the town of Clitheroe only a short drive away and offering plenty more to see and do; visit the award-winning Byrnes Wine Shop with its gigantic underground cellar, Cowman’s Famous Sausage Shop and the Exchange Coffee Company, which stocks more than 35 coffees and 60 specialist teas.

Take a visit to Clitheroe Castle, which is the smallest Norman Fort in England with plenty of castle grounds to explore as well as it's own museum.

Also there are many picturesque villages to enjoy including Waddington, Bolton by Bowland, Chipping, Slaidburn, Downham.

For those eager to get outside and explore the picturesque scenery of the area then Pendle Hill, home to the infamous witches of old, Forest of Bowland and Longridge Fell are all close by and offer a selection of leisurely strolls and more challenging trails as well as great cycle routes.

There is plenty of local wildlife and birdsong as well as deer being spotted on The Avenue and in the woods surrounding Stonyhurst.

Walk the Tolkien Trail also with JR Tolkien having reputedly written the Lord of the Rings Trilogy whilst visiting his son at the College.

Other nearby attractions include the Bowland Wild Boar Park, the breathtaking Whalley Arches and the National Trust owned property of Gawthorpe Hall, or head to the coast and spend a day at the seaside resort of Blackpool or Lytham St. Annes.
