The property

A beautifully finished stone-built cottage set in the heart of Mellor Brook in the beautiful Ribble Valley.

An idyllic, traditional style country cottage, perfect for a romantic couple, with its pretty, white front door and delightful, corresponding diamond pane windows.

You will walk straight into the cosy living room from the front door, which comprises of an open-plan sitting and dining room, featuring a woodburner, light wood floors and traditional, dark wooden beams.

Step up to the quaint dining area which is decorated with lovely picture frames; a very bright and cheerful room to sit and enjoy the peace and quiet.

The kitchen is modernised and very practical with views looking out onto the enclosed courtyard and a stunningly detailed tile floor.

Up in the large gleaming bathroom is the same beautiful flooring with blue patterned detail. Take an afternoon snooze on the king-size double bed which is a very light and airy room and looks out through another set of fabulous diamond pane windows, keeping in tone with the classic look and feel of the property.

Sit out in the enclosed courtyard, feel that early autumn breeze and listen to the sounds of the whispering winds; a little sun trap to savour in summer and a delightful place to feel calm and peaceful. Mellor Brook is a quaint village in Lancashire providing ideal countryside walks, cycling trails and lots of exciting attractions within easy reach.

There’s a choice of four local pubs within a mile of the cottage, with the closest only 300 yards away!

The cottage is in the wonderfully scenic Ribble Valley, and the picturesque towns and villages of Ribchester, Whalley and Clitheroe are a short drive away.

Offering historic sites, quirky shopping, and fabulous food & drink, they are well worth exploring.

If its walking and cycling you’re interested in then the location has much to offer.

A 30 minute walk through fields and country lanes will get you to the beautiful River Ribble.

Take the short drive to Hurst Green and discover the Tolkein Trail – the Ribble Valley landscapes that inspired “Middle Earth” in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

If you are willing to go further afield, the cottage is within an hour’s drive of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland.

A delightful cottage with lots to offer.

About the location

MELLOR BROOK

Blackburn 4 miles; Preston 8 miles: Darwen 8 miles

Mellor Brook is a quaint village which straddles the borders of the Boroughs of Ribble Valley and South Ribble in Lancashire. There is a well-known bakery situated in the heart of Mellor Brook which was so successful that it expanded to nearby Ramsgreave, retaining its original shop in the village. Its pies are a favourite of English fashion designer Wayne Hemingway. Mellor Brook is also home to St Saviours Chapel, The Feilden's Arms public house and is adjacent to Samlesbury Aerodome and Samlesbury Hall 14th century manor house offering dining and tours. About 4 miles north-west of the village is Blackburn, a bustling town resting 9 miles north of the Greater Manchester border. Blackburn is a happening place to be featuring lots of eateries, good sports and fashionable heritage. The West Pennine Moors is around 8 miles south of Blackburn, offering stunning far-reaching views to the coast and The Lake District. In the midst of the Pennine Moors is the historic Turton Tower, a fine country house standing in lovely grounds. Displays include magnificent furniture, art and woodwork as well as a programme of exhibitions and activities the year-round. For an alternative adventure and to develop some new skills, head to Darwen where there is rock climbing, open canoeing, orienteering, abseiling and gorge walking, to name a few. So, why not delve into one of the rural activities on offer and get out of your comfort zone for the day? There is plenty to get stuck into in the local area.
