  • "This was our third stay at The Smithy and it was a lovely stay as usual."

    For us it’s a “home from home” comfortable, clean and in a lovely quiet area. We have family in Lancashire and geographically the cottage is perfect for us. We will definitely book again

  • "We had a most comfortable stay in a lovely area of Lancashire."

    Everything was very clean and the house was very spacious. The children really enjoyed it. Lovely walks right from the door.

  • "So much nicer than it appears on the website."

    A lovely comfortable cottage. Could do with a few more kitchen utensils. Have already booked for the end of the year.

  • "This was our second visit to The Smithy."

    As before, lovely setting, very comfortable house and a lovely welcome pack. We will certainly book this property again when visiting Lancashire later in the year

  • "The Smithy is a lovely cottage."

    Spotlessly clean and welcoming. The cottage was decorated for Christmas which we hadn’t expected which was a nice surprise. We also received a very generous welcome pack which was much appreciated. The location is lovely very quiet and peaceful. We visit Lancashire at least four times a year and would definitely stay here again

  • "Enough space for 5 adults not to be constantly on top of each other and pleasant quiet location, ideal to start a couple of walks from the front door."

The property

This quaint, stone-built cottage rests down a lovely side road close to the centre of Hurst Green, in the scenic county of Lancashire.

Well-equipped for a family getaway, The Smithy serves as a lovely base to explore Lancashire, including the beautiful Forest of Bowland AONB.

After a day of rambles, change out your walking attire into something more comfortable and retire to the sitting room, offering a plush corner sofa where you can snuggle up and browse the Smart TV.

Allow the designated chef to relish in the kitchen, appointed with all the necessary appliances for a short break, including a double oven, induction hob and fridge/freezer, while the dining table is where all can gather to taste the fruits of your labour.

As you start to yawn, retire to either of the three bedrooms, offering a double and twin on the ground floor, while upstairs provides a king-size with en-suite shower room, plus some charming village views.

Start your morning with a refreshing shower or savour a lazy soak in the evenings, both achievable within the ground-floor bathroom.

A charming patio garden offers a spot for some alfresco dining, or wander a restaurant in the village if you’d rather not cook.

There is also a rustic pub where you can sink a refreshing pint after wandering the surrounding country paths or riding the cycle routes.

Pendle Hill, Forest of Bowland and Longridge Fell are all close by with many points of interest to discover.

The Ribble Valley is famously a foodie area, boasting a Michelin starred restaurant, Northcote, along with many other great establishments.

Pick up some local produce at Clitheroe’s great mix of specialist shops, such as multi award-winning Byrnes Wines, Exchange Coffee and Cowmans Butchers and a growing number of quirky bars and pop-up restaurants.

Other attractions worth visiting include the Bowland Wild Boar Park, the scenic Whalley Arches and the National Trust owned property of Gawthorpe Hall, or how about a trip to the coast to enjoy the seaside attractions of Blackpool or Lytham St. Annes?

If adventure takes you further afield, for something different you can take a trip to the Yorkshire Dales or The Lake District, providing some of the country’s finest natural beauty.

The Smithy is a sumptuous base to return to each evening.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location

HURST GREEN

Stonyhurst 1.3 miles; Ribchester 3.6 miles; Clitheroe 5.3 miles.

Hurst Green is a small village in the Ribble Valley district of Lancashire, England, connected in its history to the Jesuit school, Stonyhurst College. The village is 5 miles (8 km) from Longridge and 4 miles (6 km) from Clitheroe, and is close to the River Ribble, near its junction with the River Hodder. Many areas in the UK claim to have inspired J.R.R Tolkien's creation of middle earth but the author certainly spent a lot of his time at Stonyhurst College working on The Lord of the Rings during the Second World War. Many have found connections with this landscape around the college and the 5.5 mile Tolkien Trail explores the Ribble Valley that may have inspired him. Walk in the footsteps of author J.R.R. Tolkien who regularly stayed at Stonyhurst College in the Ribble Valley. J.R.R. Tolkien was renowned for his love of nature and wooded landscapes and the countryside around Stonyhurst is richly beautiful. A number of names which occur in 'The Lord of The Rings' are similar to those found locally including Shire Lane (in Hurst Green) and River Shirebourn.
