  • "Duneane cottage was perfect for our stay in Lancashire visiting family."

    The cottage is super clean, well equipped and cosy. The views from the garden are beautiful with incredible sunsets. There is a lovely gastro pub within walking distance and a nature reserve also. We found the cottage to be so peaceful and hope to go back for future stays. The lovely owners who live next door are welcoming and helpful, you can tell immediately that they want everything to be just right for your stay. We hope to be back.

  • "Total scam."

    We booked this property last minute for 2 weeks, but was asked to leave after only a few days. The owner didn't communicate directly with us, but made up lies to the agency. Even worse, the owner kept letting herself into the property without warning, which was a total invasion of privacy and made us feel very uncomfortable. The owners live next door and there's not much privacy in the garden, so you feel like you're being watched. There were also several cars parked outside, so it didn't feel like a private getaway in the countryside. An agent from Sykes Cottages agreed that the owner's behaviour was out of order, yet we have only been issued a 50% refund. Avoid at all costs and find yourself a more private cottage.

  • "A beautiful cottage tastefully furnished."

    The owners were helpful with advice on walks and local restaurants. Delightful scenery both near and further afield. Wi fi and a dishwasher would have made things perfect.

  • "Beautiful, cosy, clean and comfortable cottage."

    Stunning views. Very friendly neighbours (owners). Well equipped with everything you could want. The fresh eggs from their hens was a kind gesture. The Aga was a treat to use. Nice walks from the cottage. Definitely recommend. This was our first visit but won't be our last. Thanks for making us feel so welcome.

  • "We stayed for a total of 3 weeks, 2 consecutive bookings."

    Firstly, there is very limited WiFi and this ran out so we had to use our own data. Secondly, a couple of days after leaving we have received an email listing many faults with the property. All of which we dispute. I’m not going into detail as we are still appealing but I would suggest to stay away from this property unless you wish to be picked up for faults that are to do with ageing or installation of items. Thankfully I took some limited photos that show how we left the property, these have been forwarded to Sykes.

  • "Owner said we caused damage but we never got to see all the photos."

    This was totally untrue and we feel they just wanted extra money from us. I challenged all this with Sykes and never got to see the photos. WiFi runs out as it is data not an actual account. I feel it it too easy for owners to say damage was caused without proof.

The property

Approached down a quiet country lane on the outskirts of Oswaldthistle, Duneane Cottage is a charming base for a rural getaway to this fabulous part of Lancashire.

With a traditional décor over three floors, this welcoming abode is perfect for families and couples seeking a break from normality.

After a day of walking, look forward to lounge in the sitting room, complete with two sofas and open fire, along with a TV with Freeview for some light entertainment, it’s a lovely spot to unwind.

Move into the kitchen where you’ll find the AGA cooker standing tall, along with a host of other appliances and a dining table for mealtimes, here you can prepare home-cooked meals and toast to a long-awaited break with loved ones.

Off the kitchen is a handy utility room where you can wash your muddy clothes after a day’s exploring.

As the night comes to a close, there are three well-presented bedrooms to choose from, including a king and single on the first floor, served by a refreshing bathroom, while there is also a double on the second floor.

To the exterior of this Lancashire getaway is an enclosed patio where you can enjoy an alcoholic beverage or two.

The town of Oswaldtwistle boasts plenty of history and culture, along with a collection of pubs and restaurants for when you fancy a night away from the kitchen, and several convenience stores for the essentials.

Those looking to get their steps in can visit Gisburn Forest for walking and biking trails, as well as the nearby Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland for an abundance of scenery.

Visit the National Trust’s Gawthorpe Hall, an Elizabethan home which displays fascinating art and textile collections, set in beautiful grounds, while the Towneley Art Gallery & Museum, set in a stately home, hosts Victorian and Pre Raphelite art as well as local history.

Take in the delights of this Lancashire region while staying at Duneane Cottage.

There is a railway station in Oswaldtwistle with direct routes to Manchester, Leeds and York. Passing through Oswaldtwistle is the Leeds and Liverpool Canal which was once responsible for exporting the areas cotton produce, with Stanhill Village being the home of James Hargreaves, the inventor of the spinning jenny, a revolutionary multi- spinning frame, which advanced the Industrial Revolution. Oswaldtwistle is home to a good selection of pubs and restaurants, as well as several shops for food and essentials and golfers can enjoy the handful of golf courses found in the surrounding area.
