The property

Set a stone's throw away from the charming town of Longridge, rests this traditional mid-terrace holiday home, Jam Pot Cottage.

Offering an inviting and homely setting, Jam Pot Cottage is perfectly positioned for a small family looking to explore the picturesque sights of the Forest of Bowland and Ribble Valley.

An ideal base for walkers and cyclists, there are an array of paths to be explored from the doorstep, the 200 year old property is situated within a conservation area and is just 1.5 miles to the stunning Forest of Bowland AONB.

A delightful stone-fronted exterior greets you upon arrival to the cottage, leading you up a small set of stone steps and into a handy hallway space, offering storage for your belongings away from the main areas of the house.

Kicking off your boots, continue through to the snug sitting room, beautifully-appointed with a rustic woodburning stove and exposed stonework, inviting you to nestle in on the sumptuous sofa to enjoy a spot of television after a day full of adventure.

Head through to the amply-equipped kitchen, home to an array of amenities to assist the designated chef in preparing a heart-warming meal for the group to enjoy gathered around the dining table, planning your next adventure.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather take your dining experience outdoors with a seat on the patio, enveloped in the scenic greenery of the well-maintained garden, where you can unwind with a refreshing glass of wine under the canopy of the stars as the little ones entertain themselves with a game of pool in the basement.

As the day draws to a close, head upstairs to the first-floor where you'll find a spacious double bedroom alongside a stylish bathroom fit with a bath and overhead shower, giving guests the choice between enjoying a leisurely soak or a quick rinse.

Climb another set of stairs to the second-floor, home to a twin bedroom, tucked away under the delightful setting of the sloped ceiling, where exposed wooden beams maintain the property's traditional character, providing a snug space to rest your head.

Take the short stroll into the heart of Longridge, where you'll be spoilt for choice with the exciting selection of quaint cafes, pubs and restaurants that line the streets, or if you'd prefer to indulge in a meal in the comfort of your holiday home, pick up some locally sourced produce from the family-run butchers.

Spend an evening at The Palace Cinema, one of northwest's oldest cinemas, dating back to the1860s, hosting film and theatre.

Head further afield to the village of Ribchester, nestled on the banks of the River Ribble, and discover the history on display at Ribchester Roman Museum, visit the contemporary art gallery, Ascot Studios, or explore the ruins of the Roman Baths.

Clitheroe and it's Castle is just 20 minutes away, along with many historical sights and villages.

Test your swing at the 18 hole Longridge Golf Club, which is just 1.5 miles away.

Within easy reach is the vibrant city of Preston, where you can find many shops or why not indulge in a unique experience of afternoon tea aboard a steam-hauled locomotive at Ribble Steam Railway and Museum.

With all of this and more, choose a stay at Jam Pot Cottage for your next visit to this fabulous part of the North West.

About the location


Ribchester 3.5 miles; Preston 8 miles

Longridge is a small 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 Browsholme Country Estate, host to regular Farmers Markets. 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 fells 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 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.
