  • "Really enjoyed our stay, well deserved 5 stars, lovely & clean on arrival, had no issues atall."

    Beds were very comfy! Cute little decking area with beautiful views. Great location for walks! Of course "Pendle hill" 15min drive away & our favourite was the reservoir "Churn Clough" only (15-20mins walk away) head for the milk parlour (where you can purchase by vending machines, fresh milk, butter, cheese & milkshake adding your own syrup! Great fun for kids) & follow the rd round up the hill, then cut across the farm entrance at the gate. Where we were lucky enough to see a baby lamb being born. Amazing! & Excellent views to see the sunset! Very friendly local shop & great pubs for food all within 10-15min drive. Can't wait to return.

  • "Overall the cottage was very good."

    Comfortable, but needs a fridge that fits the gap as it didn't always close properly (slightly, too wide).

  • "We had a lovely stay at Pendle Hill Cottage in the beautiful village of Sabden."

    The location is ideal for lovely country walks and amazing countryside views, with Pendle Hill just a few minutes drive away. The cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The information booklet was great and the owners were very responsive and easy to contact. We would be happy to return to Pendle Hill Cottage again in the future.

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous couple of days at Pendle Cottage - it was just what we needed - a complete break from the rat race and quality, family time together."

    Sabden is such a pretty, picturesque village and we found everyone so incredibly friendly. The cottage was very clean and very comfortable - home from home really which was just what we needed after a tiring day of walking. We loved playing cards on the decking at the back of the cottage in the evenings, listening to the sheep in the field behind! My three children (aged 15, 15 and 12) really enjoyed following several walks on their phones - by far our best walk was walking to the top of Pendle Hill (situated at the back of the cottage) which afforded SUCH breathtaking scenery and even a paddle in the crystal clear stream! We stopped off for a quick drink at the pub across the road, 'The Pendle Witch' on the way back from our walks, and we found Shippey's Stores, just down the road, a very handy little shop for any little things we had forgotten to bring. The children also loved 'The Milking Parlour' on Cockshott Farm which was a short walk from the cottage as they were able to fill cartons with the farm's cow milk themselves and add different flavour syrups to it! Thank you Simon and Alison - we had a truly memorable break in your lovely little cottage and we are very sad to be home now!

  • "We really liked the place- it has been tastefully done out and is comfortable."

    We used the washer dryer- genius touch for when wet weather gets you muddy. We enjoyed the Netflix and Amazon access on inclement days. There were only 2 of us though so we were able to have a settee each, the blankets over the settees were used, nice touch. Downsides; The photo leads you to believe that you can park RIGHT OUTSIDE as the wall is not in the photo, so arriving in an electric car and having to run a lead across the pavement was a nightmare. I tripped the electrics too and had to put them back on three times, not sure why because an electric car only pulls 10 amps on trickle charge. I had to ask the neighbour twice very politely to move his car even though my car is a small Zoe. you can park across the road but not if you need 'fuel'. The second room has nowhere to put any clothes in so mum had to live off a suitcase on the floor of the landing. The stairs are really steep. Might be worth mentioning. The location is very nice for walks and moorland not far away. Well appointed kitchen. We had everything we needed.
