The property

A delightful, stone-built 18th century terraced cottage on a quiet lane in the centre of the lovely village of Waddington, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland.

Lovingly furnished and styled, this attractive cottage provides first-class accommodation in a great location, ideal for couples and small families wishing to get away from it all and enjoy this very special corner of the Ribble Valley.

On entering the cottage guests will be immediately impressed with the stylish features of the main living room, with delightful furnishings and the subtle use of traditional and modern styling which combine beautifully in this period cottage.

A small but well-equipped kitchen leads out through the rear entrance to a pretty courtyard garden, an ideal spot to sit out and enjoy a little dining alfresco; providing the three award-winning gastropubs in the village do not present too much of a temptation!

The three bedrooms are individually styled, with all rooms offering en-suite facilities.

The village is a real delight with its babbling brook and beautiful Coronation Gardens.

This is a great area to explore, with some of the best pubs in Lancashire contained within a small area, or you can explore Clitheroe with its Norman Castle, a market held three times a week and excellent shopping.

The area is wonderful for walking and cycling, whilst the Forest of Bowland and the market town of Skipton are all within easy reach.

Within an hour’s drive of the property there are many places of interest to discover, including Harrogate, Skipton, Malham, Grassington, Yorkshire Dales, Blackpool, Southport, Bury Market in Bury, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Lytham St Annes and the Martin Mere Wildfowl Trust in Lancashire.

A little further afield, but still worth a visit, is The Lake District and also the city of York.

A cosy, stylish holiday home with so much to see and do!
