    “Arriving with high expectations we were not let down.”

    We were immediately made welcome by our hosts, Roger and Lesley, who helped us settle in to their beautifully appointed cottage. The view from the sitting room was breathtaking. They also gave us lots of advice on places to visit both for the scenery and where to eat. The icing on the cake was the fantastically warm and sunny weather that we had for our entire mid-September week.

The property

Nestled in the courtyard of Hill Top Farm behind secure electric gates and a 200yd tree lined drive, Meadow Cottage offers a luxurious rural hideaway with all the comforts of home. Offering a stunning 180° panorama across farms, fields and rolling fells – the views stretch as far as the Irish Sea, North Wales Hills, Fylde Coast, Blackpool Tower, (see the illuminations in November) Morecambe Bay, Beacon Fell, Parlick Fell, Chipping and Dunsop Bridge. On certain days one can even see The Isle of Man! Meadow Cottage offers truly luxurious accommodation for all ages and types of guests with two king size bedrooms. There is plenty of flexibility on offer as both of the bedrooms offer zip and link King Sized double or twin beds to suit the requirements of all guests - with an additional ‘roll out’ 3ft guest bed (or travel cot) thereby converting Bedroom 1 into a ‘family’ room. Bedroom 2 boasts a totally self-contained suite with modern en-suite shower room as well as there being a separate ‘wet room’ shower room for Bedroom 1. The property is fully flexible and ideal for all types of guests such as families, groups of friends, couples seeking a romantic getaway, guests attending weddings and celebrations, business travellers and visiting relatives. With stylish and contemporary furnishings and oak floors throughout, Meadow Cottage is truly ‘Green’ – heated by latest Scandinavian ‘geo thermal’ ground source heating technology with underfloor heating throughout and individual room ‘smart’ thermostats. Additional hot water is provided by roof solar water heating panels. But there is also a log burning stove for those nights where only a cosy real fire will do. A welcome grocery pack, toiletries, fire logs, broadband Wi-Fi, Smart TV’s with Freesat, Netflix, YouTube and Spotify are all included in the rental charge. Meadow Cottage is highly suitable for guests with limited mobility.

Whilst not having full disabled facilities, there is an access ramp from the car park, all accommodation in the main cottage is level ground floor, the bathroom has an outward opening extra-wide access door, a raised height WC and a totally open wet room shower facility where a sit down shower could be taken – (using a suitable stool provided on request.) With a wide range of footpaths and cycle routes immediately nearby, it provides the ideal base for an activity holiday. However, the village of Longridge is only 1 mile away, within easy walking distance and offers opportunities for relaxation in the numerous inns and restaurants with no worries about driving. The main shopping centres of Blackburn and Preston are only 7 miles drive and the internationally famous Trafford Centre Shopping Mall can be reached with a 45-minute motorway drive.

The coastal tourist resorts of Blackpool and Morecambe are both within an easy drive and the beautiful Lake District is an easy day excursion.

About the location


Ribchester 3.5 miles; Preston 14.2 miles

Longridge is a medium-sized town and civil parish in the borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire. Situated 8 miles north-east of the city of Preston, at the western end of Longridge Fell, above the River Ribble. Longridge initially developed outwards from an area around St. Lawrence's Church, at the boundary of the townships of Dilworth and Alston and to the south of the modern-day town centre. Many of the buildings are built of locally quarried sandstone and despite modern developments; the town centre remains largely as it was when it was first established. The town holds a portfolio of gift shops, cafes, antiques and art studios together with a quaint cinema, plus numerous food outlets from takeaways to gastro pubs. It is also home to an Air Training Corps squadron and an Army Cadet Force detachment. Its nearest neighbours are Grimsargh and the Roman town of Ribchester, with its Roman museum and beautiful church of St Mary’s on the banks of the river Ribble. Clitheroe castle is only 20 minutes down the road. Here there is another wealth of interest, from the historic Brundleholme Hall to the famous Byrnes wine shop. To the southeast Longridge Field Day is a long-standing annual event that consists of a parade through the town, and various attractions on the town's recreational playing field. The Forest of Bowland (AONB) shows off an expanse of gentle and tidy lowlands criss-crossed with dry stone walls and dotted with picturesque farms and villages. The hen harrier is the bird symbolised on the Forest of Bowland’s logo as it is their most important breeding ground in England. Beyond the Harrier there is a wealth of other wildlife to be spotted from Kingfishers to the Red-Legged Grouse. The rivers Ribble, Calder and Hodder converge near the prestigious Catholic Stonyhurst College, providing idyllic landscapes and walks, not least of which – The Tolkien Trail – lead to an abundance of pubs to quench the thirst afterwards. The area sports numerous agricultural shows, art exhibitions and day festivals of all sorts throughout the summer and is within reach of the Lancaster canal and city, Blackpool and the Lake District, so there is plenty to keep everyone occupied.
