  • "Clean and comfortable."

    Loved the fact Waddington is so dog friendly. The drive across the Forest of Bowland is one not to be missed with plenty of scenic walks and view points. The property was warm and welcoming and had everything we needed.

    Lovely cosy cottage, clean and well equipped. Ollie and staff at the lower buck were very welcoming and having a nice pub right next to the cottage was a real bonus.

  • "Could have cleaned the surfaces in the kitchen area better, particularly the fridge and oven."

    Otherwise, very good property ideally positioned for visiting the surrounding areas. The pub next door was big benefit. Had a really nice roast dinner on the Sunday.

The property

Nestled in the heart of Waddington village, less than two miles from the bustling town of Clitheroe, is this charming cottage, The Lower Buck.

The cottage is situated next to an 18th century country pub/restaurant.

The property has been tastefully renovated into a stylish and modern base which mixes contemporary touches with classic period features such as its rustic stone exterior.

Resting towards the front of the property is a dining room which has seating for all six guests and is a wonderful social space for the whole family to dine together.

Walk through to the amply-equipped kitchen area with everything you will need to set you up for a weekend in the countryside.

Spend your evenings in the sitting room settled on the sofas and reminisce about the day's events, whilst the TV plays a film in the background.

Following the steps up to the first floor, you will find two doubles and a twin bedroom to choose from; each bedroom has a range of modern furnishings, which complement the light decor, and offer an abundance of space to store your personal items.The master bedroom comes with its own en-suite shower room, whilst the remaining bedrooms share their own shower room.

Take a drive towards the town centre of Clitheroe which has a selection of independent shops and supermarkets for picking up any last-minute essentials for dinner.

If you're looking for something historic, visit Clitheroe Castle and Museum, which offers a wide-range of local history.

Located on the fringes of the Forest of Bowland AONB which covers 312 square miles and is ideal for keen explorers to get involved with some walking, hiking and cycling opportunities, with superb views across the open moorland.

The Lower Buck is the ultimate choice for a rural break to the heart of Lancashire.
