  • "This is a fabulous cottage."

    The owners have thought of everything, even things we didn’t realise we’d need! It is beautifully done with a VERY comfortable bed, lovely shower and a cosy log burner. We could not fault it and can’t wait to stay again.

  • "Sunnybrook Cottage is perfect for a couple's retreat away from it all, yet within 400yds of the village pubs and amenities."

    The views around were lovely and it was fun watching the local birds making the most of the feeders - including a woodpecker! The cottage is beautifully decorated and equipped with each nook and cranny thoughtfully utilised to great effect. It was spotlessly clean, the decorations tasteful and the bathroom sleek and modern. We had a lovely 3 night stay. Jean was welcoming and had thoughtfully left us milk and mince pies. We had no need to use the wood burner; the radiators kept us warm and the lovely touch of a Christmas tree and decorations gave the cottage a seasonal and cosy feel. We are definitely thinking about a return in the summer, when the large patio area would come into its own.

  • "We greatly enjoyed staying at Sunnybrook Cottage which, is small but perfectly formed!"

    It's ideal for a couple and, in fact, rather Tardis-like in feeling much larger inside than it appears from outside. It's comfortable, stylish and beautifully designed, with an open-plan living/sleeping/cooking area and a small but well-equipped bathroom at one end with an excellent walk-in shower. There's also a spacious terrace with a lovely view of Pendle Hill. Jean and Graham, who live in the adjacent house, were fantastic hosts - kind and attentive while also thoughtful about respecting our privacy. The cottage is well positioned, just outside the beautiful village of Waddington and only a short drive from Clitheroe. One thing to bear in mind is that the road from the village to the cottage is quite busy, so you need to take special care when undertaking the short walk back home from the pub after dark! All in all we had a wonderful stay and would warmly recommend this property.

  • "Tiny but perfect cottage for a short break."

    Has everything needed and done to a good standard. Minor issue - it is a little tricky to find if coming from the north as the small sign is only visible coming from the south. I'd happily stay again.

  • "The cottage is superbly designed, and despite being a smallish space, has everything one could need."

    We were there in winter and it was very cosy, but I'm sure the private outside seating area would make it equally attractive in warmer weather. The setting is beautiful and the hosts accommodating. I would very much recommend it.

  • "The Cottage was impeccable, it had been restored to a high standard and everything felt quite luxurious."

    As well as Central Heating, there was a lovely and toastie wood burning stove. In fact, despite the awful weather, we turned the heating off and opened windows. You will notice the pleasant babble of the brook, at night, accompanied by the hooting of owls. The 3 pubs in Waddington were every bit as good as advertised. We preferred the "Lower Buck" with open fires and friendly locals.All had good beer and good food. There is fantastic walking country, straight from the door step and if you use the car, you are only minutes from Pendle Hill or the Trough of Bowland. The Owners, Graham and Jean, were very pleasant and helpful.
