  • "Really enjoyed the cottage nice and clean, sauna a bonus."

    The private courtyard was not very private but got the sun.

  • "We booked this cottage as it had great reviews, looked impressive and we wanted to do nice walks."

    We went with high expectations. Those expectations were exceeded! On entering the cottage we were immediately impressed, as it was modern, bright and had the finishing touches that made it a "home from home", rather than just sterile holiday accommodation. It was a pleasure to wake up each morning and see the view of Pendle Hill from the bedroom side window. The spacious shower room with the infrared sauna was also a pleasure! Yes it would be better if it wasn't on the main road through the village, but we are clutching at straws, as it didn't detract from the overall positive experience. We have been on lots of self catering holidays and would put this up there with the best. We rarely return to the same place, but we both said we will come back to Rose Cottage. We truly didn't want to leave. The owner should be very proud!

    Thank you and what fab feedback to receive, thank you so much. We love the cottage and are, as you say very proud of it. You're welcome back any time. Thanks again for such amazing feedback. Property Owner

  • "Great stay at Rose Cottage."

    The weather was very wet but Rose Cottage was just as the listing. It was clean, tidy, warm and comfortable. Everything worked and the sauna was enjoyed by both my partner and I. Nice touch when arrived finding a pint of milk in the fridge and wood for the fire. Would love to stay again in the future. Thankyou for allowing us to stay.

    Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Stayed over with my partner here for New Years."

    Such a cosy and quaint cottage with amazing views of the Pendle hill area. Lots of nice walks and pubs nearby. Parking was also really easy on the side of the road. In terms of the cottage itself its perfect for couples for a weekend break. Everything was sqeuaky clean and well laid out on arrival. Personal highlight was the funky walk in shower and sauna as well as the small yet surprisingly spacious kitchen area. Would strongly reccommend to others and anyone staying over in the Clitheroe area. Nice smart TV capable of USSB playback, wifi, hairdryer and lots of towels provided. The only super minor negative nit pick is they didnt have any bowls for snacks or cereal knocking about. But Ithats just me being fussy. Overall a lovely stay <3

    Thanks for your feedback and really pleased you enjoyed your stay. With regards to bowls there are a number of cereal bowls and serving bowls /dishes in the kitchen cupboards but if there is anything more that you think would be needed please let me know. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful little cottage which was easy to find on the satnav, parking no problem (we parked slightly up the road where the road was a tad wider."

    The actual cottage was exactly as listed, very cozy, quirky and just the right amount of decorations. It was very clean throughout and easy to find stuff that we needed (cutlery, mugs etc). Furnished to a very high standard and a lovely comfortable bed too. Stairs were a little difficult to negotiate due to being steep but not a problem (my arthritic knee didn't mind them) and there was lighting throughout the rooms and stairs. We had to override the thermostat a couple of times (early morning) but also not a problem. We didn't use the wood burner as it was fairly warm during our stay, but would have done if needed, nice to know it was there. Lovely kitchen area which had all you need and a good sized refridgerator. Loved the bathroom which was small, but had a lovely walk in shower with a hand held shower (which is my preference) ... I found I couldn't get the water very hot but my husband did. The infra red sauna was also a lovely touch and we did use this .... very relaxing and a great idea after a day out. Wish we'd stayed longer, but we will be back. Fab little getaway and enjoyed every minute. Thank You, perfect for us and lovely views of Pendle Hill, which we hope to visit next time.

  • "Lovely property - great location."

    Well decorated. Well furnished. Well equipped. Well stocked. Parking is on the road but never had a problem parking in front of the house. The sauna is excellent. The dishwasher is a nice touch for a 1 bed property. We had problems with the shower. It never got hot, only warm. Reported the problem to the owners but there was no resolution. It really needs to be fixed! Improvements: The dishwasher is full size but only 4 sets of plates and knives and forks. So you run out of everything before the dishwasher is 25% full. More plates would be good. There is a recycling bin outside but nothing in the house. Clearly labelled recycling bins inside would make recycling much easier. Every region has different rules on what to mix and separate. With the increasing number of electric and PHEV cars, a mains socket in the front garden would be very helpful to get a bit of charge into the car overnight. Lancashire appears painfully short of charging stations

    Thank you for your feedback, this is always helpful. With regard to the shower as this was reported to us after 10pm it wasn't feasible to come out at that time although I did respond straight away to your message and again in the morning when I asked a few questions before I sent someone to look at the shower. As I didn't receive a response I assumed everything had resolved. We have now adjusted the thermostat on the shower - thank you for bringing this to our attention as we were not aware that this had been a problem until your stay. As it is a small open plan cottage numerous recycling bins inside the house would clutter up the room and look unsightly and as you point out there are recycling bins in the garden close to the cottage. With regard to a car charging point we will keep a eye on this as to the feasibility of installing one at the cottage. Thank you. Property Owner

  • "Rose Cottage had a warm, cosy welcoming feel to it."

    We quickly settled in & slept soundly in a very comfy bed. The kitchen was well equipped, with everything we needed. The highlight for us was the infrared sauna, which we used daily, this was comforting after a days walking. Although on a busy road through the village, noise wasn’t an issue inside the cottage, though parking can be difficult, we didn’t have a problem. We felt it was located well for our needs & enjoyed walks with outstanding views in an area of AONB, we also supported the local cottage industries, & garden centres. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Rose Cottage.

  • "Rose Cottage was absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed to make it a wonderful holiday."

    It is in a place of outstanding natural beauty and the walks we did were amazing. We were also blessed with glorious sunny weather. The cottage was spotlessly clean, the bed so comfortable and the addition of the infra red sauna was great. The only negative comments to be made was we were under the impression that we could eat at the village pubs, both were closed and up for sale and also the parking at the cottage was hit and miss at times to get near to. The cottage is located on a steep hill on a rather narrow road, quite busy with farm vehicles etc. On arrival we were advised by locals not to park in front of the cottage as a few wing mirrors on parked cars had been damaged on that part of the road. The road widens a bit further down the hill where we found spaces to park. We would definately return to Rose Cottage, it was the perfect getaway for a wonderful walking holiday.

    The accommodation was spotless, with all the facilities required for a self-catering stay. The decor was clean and contemporary, with a comfy bed, a well-equipped kitchen and the added bonus of an infrared sauna! The porch area was a great spot to take in views of Pendle Hill and watch the sunset. There was also lots of handy information about the cottage and the local area. The location was an ideal base for exploring the Ribble Valley. We enjoyed great walks along the river from the cottage, as well as trips further afield (the Tolkien Trail is a highly recommended local walk!) We would happily stay at Rose Cottage again and we've already had plenty of family and friends asking for details. Thank you so much!

  • "The cottage exceeded our expectations."

    Everything was immaculate and you could see the owners where not cutting any corners when it came to quality and cleanliness. Parking was not a problem but we had to park a little further down the road where it was a bit wider and safer for the wing mirrors. Really can not think of anything negative to say which is unlike me. There was some building work next door but they were very considerate. Maybe being prewarmed about that from Sykes would have been appreciated. All in all I score this cottage 9.5 out of 10. The 0.5 is because of the building work next door and missing an egg spactual. We would definitely come back.

    So homey and relaxing. The bed was the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. The sauna was beautiful, just what I needed after a day's walking in the dales. Even though its is beautiful dated cottage it has all the mod cons and tech. It was brilliant. I loved it so much, a friend even booked it and I shall be back without a doubt. Great location, peace and quiet and just the perfect spot for a break. Take a tin opener if you need one (there may be one there now though) perfect stay.
