  • "Thank you for great Christmas week."

    Rose Cottage is cosy and comfortable, perfect for a winter break; it is also stylish with fab modern features like the sauna. My husband and I had a wonderful stay, enjoying the wood burning stove curled up on the sofa in the evening. The village is lovely and the surrounding countryside has beautiful walks straight from the front door of the cottage.

  • "This was our third stay at this cottage as we just love the location to explore the surrounding areas ."

    The cottage is lovely and comfortable and has the added bonus of the sauna to relax in after long days walking. Only dropped a star for the fact that when we arrived the front window was open and the cottage did smell musty which did wear off when the fire was lit later that evening- and there were only two pieces of wood left (luckily we had brought supplies). Apart from those little gripes we had another fantastic stay.

    Hi Barry, thank you for your comments. Apologies about the window and only a few logs. The cleaner must of been in a rush to get to the next job and forgot to close the window and leave logs. These things happen. The windows are all opened while the property is cleaned to let fresh air in. We’re also sorry about the musty smell. We are aware of it. It’s a common problem in old properties. Rose Cottage was built in the 17th century. However we will work on the smell.Thank you.Laura & Tim Property Owner

  • "Very clean and comfortable and a good location for walks from the door and getting to other locations with a reliable 7 day bus service from Clitheroe to Nelson passing regularly."

    There seemed to be a problem with the fridge when I checked in, no interior light and melting ice cubes pack. I contacted the owner, Tim, who arranged for someone to come round within a few minutes. Perhaps plug not pushed firmly into socket as the fridge worked when unplugged and plugged back in, despite interior light still not working, but that's no problem. No other issues, so a very relaxing week

    Thank you very much for the positive feedback. We've addressed the interior light, the bulb needed replacing! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

  • "I would have given a higher rate but unfortunately there's maintenence needed."

    The drainage system seems to be poor as the shower backs up as soon as you turn it on so you end up with a fair pool of dirty water all over your feet, there's nowhere to put any toiletries within the shower and they end up in the water

    Thank you for your feedback, mainly positive and we appreciate honesty. It's nice to know you found the property clean and comfortable during your stay. Unfortunately there isn't much fall on the drainage out of the shower as there is limited space within the first floor void. Something fairly common in properties dating back to the 18th century. There is a notice advising such within the cottage, but we will action investigation immediately in the instance there is an obstruction. Our contact numbers were in the property manual, we would have happily responded to you and investigated this further at the time. We take your comments on board regards somewhere to put toiletries. Constructive criticism allows us to improve. Property Owner

Settled amidst the wonder of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this contemporary delight, Rose Cottage dating back to 1791.

Boasting magnificent views over the countryside from its exterior, with a stylish interior welcoming you in after a day of exploration, this property is perfect for a romantic escape to Lancashire.

Step inside to the beautiful open-plan living space, marvelling at the beautiful stained glass rose in the door giving the cottage its name, where a stylish array of plush grey seating invites you to warm up before the wood burning stove, the perfect way to end any day, while the dining table sits behind here where you can enjoy all your romantic meals, the sleek kitchen offering all the essentials with an electric oven and induction hob, microwave, fridge and even a dishwasher, with plenty of preparation space around the bright and welcoming yellow walls.

Take the stairs to the first floor to be met by the impressive shower room, home to a spacious walk-in shower where you can relax and wash away the day, as well as the wonder of your very own infrared sauna offering true tranquillity after your fun-filled days.

Seek comfort within the double bedroom and catch up with your rest all while being surrounded by a simple yet stylish interior, with ample storage space for your personal belongings too.

Begin your day out in the walled front garden with views over the Ribble Valley to Pendle Hill before heading out to explore the excitement up close; the local area is wonderfully idyllic, with the nearby Grindleton Brook making a lovely spot for an early morning stroll amongst the fresh countryside air, while if you're looking for a more leisurely atmosphere take a trip into the villages of Waddington and Chatburn where you will find all the amenities you could need for a self-catered stay.

Waddington hosts three excellent pubs and a Post Office while Chatburn has a Post Office with a local shop, two pubs, a Chinese takeaway and even an ice cream parlour.

Visits to these villages are sure to tend to all your cuisine needs, as well as being homes to beautiful parish churches, well-worth exploring.

From the cottage you have easy access to Pendle Hill, best known for its links to the Witch Trials of 1612, it now offers its visitors 43 miles of wonderful walking route along the Pendle Way through the Trough of Bowland to Lancaster, with access to the Bronte Way too, both offering spectacular views and plenty of scenic picnic spots.

Be sure to make the most of the Forest of Bowland AONB too, with even more walking and cycling routes amongst spectacular scenery as well as opportunities for fishing for trout and salmon on the rivers Ribble, Dunsop, Hodder and Lune, as well as gliding, stargazing and so much more, there's something here to suit every type of adventurer.

The Forest of Bowland (AONB) has been officially recognised as having some of the darkest skies in England.

Venture to the town of Clitheroe for a day with a more vibrant pace, where you will find a good selection of restaurants to choose from for a celebratory dinner, as well as Clitheroe Castle, supposedly the smallest Norman castle in England, hosting its very own museum and sixteen acres of stunning landscaped gardens, as well as the town offering ghost and brewery tours and wonderful shopping experiences, it's well-worth exploring.

Perfect for a couple's retreat to Lancashire, Rose Cottage makes a fantastic choice for your holiday base in Lancashire at any time of year.
