This beautiful cottage sits high on the old road between Colne and Skipton, boasting panoramic views from one of the highest hills in Pendle, with easy access to the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and picturesque towns such as Harrogate and Ilkley.
Whether you are planning a romantic trip, or an idyllic getaway for two, this one-of-a-kind retreat is the place to be for fabulous natural scenery which can all be appreciated from the stunning wood fired hot tub, patio area and breath-taking feature windows.
Access the cottage via a delightful private driveway and Shawclough Barn invites you inside to its warm and cosy open-plan living area.
With a magnificent homely kitchen and a dining area looking out over the tranquil landscape, you can return here any time of day and truly relax.
Tucked away into the corner of the room you will discover a woodburning stove opposite a large and comfortable sofa where you can begin those snug nights in.
The same sense of luxury continues into the hallway, where you will be intrigued by the contemporary lighting reminding guests of the area’s former textile history, before taking stairs which lead up to your own fashionable night-time haven.
The super king-size bedroom has been uniquely styled under A-framed beams, and features a freestanding roll-top bath to relax in, resting beneath Velux windows.
Adjacent there is an absolutely stunning separate wet-room with wood-effect tiling, walk-in “rain shower”, twin basins and WC.
Whether you are settling down after a sightseeing adventure, or waking up to the scenery, you will feel right at home.
Laneshaw Bridge is perfect for walkers and cyclists, with no shortage of walking and cycling opportunities, including the Pennine Way and Bronte Way close by, and many footpaths available straight from the cottage.
To unwind on a nice afternoon, Black Lane Ends Tavern is close by, a well-known pub sitting on top of the moors with stunning views and a cosy charm.
There’s loads to do on your doorstep:
The pretty hamlet of Wycoller, most famous for its Bronte connection, lies close by.
Today Wycoller Hall stands in ruins but this 16th century hall is believed to have been the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Bronte’s novel, ‘Jane Eyre'.
Spend a day exploring the “Panopticans”: four large scale sculptures, all within 20 miles of the cottage, constructed as symbols of the renaissance of the area.
Take a day boat, walk or cycle ride along the Leeds Liverpool canal.
Explore the circular Pendle Way over Pendle Hill taking in waterfalls, moors and the famous lairs of the Pendle Witches.
Book a shooting experience at Kelbrook Shooting School or a Land Rover experience at Broughton Hall just outside Skipton.
Further afield explore Skipton Castle, Bolton Abbey, Ilkely Moor, Malham Tarn, Grassington, Settle and the Yorkshire three Peaks
Skipton and Colne are the two closest towns both offering an exceptional variety of independent shops and lots of eateries to choose from.
There's the large retail outlet of Boundary Mills, just four miles away in Colne, a must for lovers of shopping.
Nearby Skipton, known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' is a lovely old market town with much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street.
