    Park hill itself is on beautifull private grounds with plenty of space for everyone Facilities were brilliant kids loved the cinema room took a while to work out how to switch it on finally worked it out The hot tub downstairs had some very strong chemical in it couldnt stay in there more than 10 mins got to my throat also changed the colour of our clothes we used the one upstairs which was brilliant The house itself very out dated especially the bathrooms no locks in the bathrooms apart from one doors dont close properly showers werent great either Beds were comfy but the bed linen didnt look fresh at all bed linen was so worn out and torn which put us off The main bedroom was lovely but had a unpleasent smell to it coming from outside Outdoors the bin area had so much rubbish all around the bins there is no light in the sauna room as mentioned in the previous feedback so we were unable to use it All the taps are rusty Being a regular holiday maker and paying the amount we paid the house felt a big let down Needs an update

    Starting to look old and dated. Lights popping all the time causing fuses to trip. No hot water on final day due to constant problems with fuse box.

  • "WOW WOW WOW took our breath away on arrival."

    An absolute gem property . Perfect for our family get together. The house looks much better than the pictures. So much to do and so much room to spread out. Views were amazing from the house and there were lovely walks too. We saw rabbits within the grounds everyday. We will be booking to return in the future

  • "Our stay at Parkhill was amazing from start to finish, we stayed as a group of 18 and it was a surprise for my Mum’s 50th, as she arrived and we drove up the drive to be greeted by family and friends waving from the veranda it was a great surprise for my Mum, the perfect property for such occasions."

    The property has lots of facilities to keep everybody entertained, our youngest guest was 7 years old and eldest 75 and everybody enjoyed their stay at Parkhill. The house does need to be modernised in certain areas however this did not take away from the luxury feel the property offers. We are already looking to book again!

  • "Park Hill was everything we expected and more."

    Externally the views and location was breath taking. The ground floor definitely had the wow factor and the leisure and entertainment facilities were brilliant. All the bedrooms were clean and well appointed. The layout of the property for cooking, dining, drinking, TV watching and especially the karaoke stage are well thought out and ideal for large family / friends groups wanting a good time. However, the following minor factors, although not affecting our 5*+ rating for the property are something for you to consider, as other people may see these as to the detriment of their stay. The oven in the kitchen was small when catering for 18 people; lots of hob space and other cooking facilities though. The drain smell (reported in other reviews) although not particularly distracting to ourselves was continually prevalent around the utility room and master ensuite throughout our stay? The light in the sauna does not work and so a potential danger of tripping when entering such a dark space? However, wishing to finish on a positive note - we enjoyed our stay so much that we will undoubtedly look to book this property again in the future with no qualms whatsoever.

    Had to re wash everything before we could use it. Dog hairs everywhere!! Most hairs need replacing as they were brokeand we were scared to sit on them.

  • "We stayed at ParkHill from the 5-12 of November, there was 13 of us in total and it was honestly outstanding."

    We had waited around a year and a half for this holiday due to Covid pushing it back but we all said we wouldn’t of changed a thing and it was worth the wait. The club/party room was amazing and we were on the karaoke stage every night! The house had a luxury feel throughout especially the master bedroom. We will definitely be coming again, we’re all already discussing to book again for next year. The only recommendations we would have would be a possible pool table to top it off but other than that wouldn’t change it! No other houses like this compares. Thank you for having us!

  • "Had a great time at Park hill, 15 of us living for a week in a fantastic place consisting of 3 separate properties with more than enough space for all of us."

    Paul was on hand to look after us when a couple of issues did arise with the indoor hot tub which unfortunately he wasn’t able to fix which meant we couldn’t use it for the week and the Internet was very intermittent which caused some issues with SKY. Other than that though it’s a fantastic place for a large gathering of family and friends with lots of beautiful places to visit near by. The main house could do with a bit of work done on it but that didn’t really affect our break. Would definitely recommend even with a few minor problems.

  • "Paul and Sam did a great job in that the property was clean and they responded to queries during the weekend."

    We had a fun time and the main area is a great party space. However, there were some significant issues which would prevent us from recommending this property to others. Overall the fixtures, fittings and furnishings were very tired and worn. Most of the main house and both lodges require a significant update, especially the bathrooms. The lodge nearest the gate smelt damp and I don’t feel it is suitable as guest accommodation. We had no hot water in the main house on Sunday morning which we were able to fix following instruction but that involved rather a dangerous removal of a glass panel. The WiFi was very unreliable meaning the TVs in the master suite weren’t useable to the full extent and the alarm went off in the lodge nearest the gate at 1am on Monday morning. As there are no codes in the house manual we had to sit it out until the alarm stopped. The main issue though was a faulty wire / connection to the karaoke speaker. The speaker worked at first ( although the speaker has blown so the sound wasn’t great) but on sat night the connection became intermittent and then stopped working altogether. The wire had been previously repaired with black tape but this fix no longer seemed to work meaning we couldn’t use the karaoke or the speaker to play our specially prepared music playlist. One of the reasons we booked this property was because of the karaoke and it’s a shame a previous temporary repair job had been done rather than replacing an inexpensive wire and connector. Despite all this we had a great weekend but sadly I don’t feel this property represents value for money in it’s current condition.

  • "Overall experience was excellent."

    The property is in need of some tlc but that doesnt stop it being a lovely party house. There were a couple of issues we rented all 3 properties and asked that the bedrooms all be made as doubles was told this was not a problem but 1 bedroom in the main house was a twin and all 3 in the lodge were to. Couldnt use the amazing shower in the master bedroom as the water ran so hot, which was surprising as there was no hot water in the lodge!! I tried calling to report this from 8am Saturday got a message back Saturday evening saying a plumber would be out late morning early afternoon Sunday, in fairness he did arrive and fixed the hot water in the lodge but not the shower in the master bedroom. Overall we had an amazing stay but would suggest things like the water and showers are checked by the turn round staff so they can get the process of sorting them moving before guests arrive.

  • "Pictures just don't do justice."

    It's a fantastic place, secure and beautiful, for a large group. Clitheroe attractions & Forest of Bowland are fairly near by and it's also not far from Lakes or Dales. I had a group of 18 including 3 kids, and we had a blast during our stay at Parkhill. Hot Tub, Jacuzzi, Gym, Karaoke, Cinema hall, BBQ corner are all great set up and provide a good variety for everyone to be happy & engaged. The Kitchen & Living are great size and housed us all very comfortably. Owners/Point of contacts were very approachable too, and helped with most of our requests. We even got a lovely welcome surprise on arrival. Thank you for that. xx The week we stayed over the WiFi was playing up a bit, but I guess that was down to Sky having some problems in the area. The only negative feedback I'll give, but not deduct any scores for it, is the fact that the property is aging and needs a bit of a touch up / repair in places. But this didn't bother us too much. Overall we had a fantastic holiday. :)

    We all had a fantastic Time . Unfortunately the projector in the cinema room stopped working mid film and the tv in the bath in the master bedroom did not work but it didn’t ruin our weekend. The hot tub and sauna were well used by our group as well as the karaoke! I think the check in time is a little late at 5pm considering what you are paying for the weekend but appreciate it is a huge property to clean. Would definitely stay again and recommend to family and friends.

    We were a little apprehensive before going due to some negative reviews on here however when we arrived at the house it did nothing but exceeded our expectations! Everything is as described and everything was in full working order, the hot tub was very easy to use and there were instructions for everything technical (speakers, heating system, jacuzzi bath etc) which were very easy to follow. The house was spotless when we arrived and had everything you could ever want and more and we will 100% be returning in the future!

    We went for my husband's 40th and it was the perfect party pad. In particular, the party room and cinema are incredible and the karaoke and bar just made it for us. Also, the views are great. We were there in winter, but it has great outdoor space for the summer time and the upstairs balcony is a prime spot. The kitchen is a bit dated and had some bits missing (like a teapot, sharp knives, corkscrew) and the crockery and glassware was a bit mismatched, but nothing serious and it didn't spoil our weekend! We would all love to go back.

    We have visited Clitheroe many times and love it, and this house was fabulous too, we couldn't have asked for a better venue for my 50th birthday celebrations. The house was everything we expected and more, fabulous bar, fabulous party room, loads of space for us all, just one small criticism (which is very rare to hear from me) - we were too hot!!! The indoor jaccuzi wasn't working which was a shame as we would have liked to have used it, but it certainly didn't detract from our experience!

    There was no heating in the cinema, making watching a film extremely uncomfortable. The was also no internet in the cinema preventing us from watching a film from Sky Cinema. Only 1 part used toilet roll per bathroom was left for us meaning we had to go to the shops to buy more pet way through the visit and there was no frying pan and some of the cooking utensils were dirty. We rung the help number provided and left messages but nobody returned the call or messages all weekend. Not very impressed considering the cost of the house for the weekend.

  • "Everything was great, had a wonderful Holiday."

    The place was amazing. Place needs Some TLC, a lot of the mattresses need replacing especially in master bedroom, past use by date. Pillows like wafers and stained. Bedding and sheeting could do with been renewed. In the cinema looks like bulb in projector needs replacing, I know in instructions it says to press back on instructions when it mentions on screen that replacement needed, what is not told that it cuts out after a couple of hrs and you have to wait a good while before restarting. The hot tub and sauna is great and the kitchen works well and is well supplied with pans etc. We did have a great time but a look at the little thinks would have made it much better. Anyone going here will love it but after a couple of days will notice the little things that could be done. Call me lazy if you wish but dragging the bins all the way down the drive and to the end of the road after paying £3300.00 for week peeved me a little. You probably notice with other feed backs it seems to be the same kind of things. Place could do with been shut for a couple of months and some time and money spent on it, then it would be not just great but amazing. People please don't be put of by this the place is still a great place to get together, we had a great bonding experience getting all the family's together.

  • "Park Hill is a great place for a large gathering, as previous reviews have stated, some refurbishment investment is needed."

    We found that particularly the electrics were suspect, with many of the features (upstairs jacuzzi bath & TV in main suite bathroom, the sauna downstairs all seemed to blow fuses when used). The "Jack 'n' Jill" bathroom toilet upstairs in main house has a macerator apparently and broke after a few days, so that bathroom was decommissioned for the rest of our stay. There was a pipe leak at the entrance to the property that was depositing a foul smelling leakage. That's the downside but I have to say that Paul the housekeeper was very attentive, very pleasant, easily contactable and arranged for a plumber to look at the toilet within 24 hours, and also explained that the pipe leakage was in hand but contractors were booked up. The above may sound negative but there is still a lot to enjoy at this property, the "White room, Party Room and Cinema Room" were great features, the views are terrific and generally the property very comfortable. The availability of the Lodge and Cottage as self contained units was a real plus. Its within easy walk of Clitheroe town centre and other small villages with great pubs and restaurants. Overall pleased that we chose Park Hill.

There were a few things that were confusing; when we first got there we couldn't find the WIFI code, but this was rectified shortly after getting in touch with Sykes, and then the management team for the house. There are a few things that the house could fix, a couple of broken chairs, (one at the bar and one spare at the dining table), few wires, etc. with duct tape wrapped around, signs on the balcony about repairs, etc. Overall though, a fantastic getaway break, we're already looking at going again next year!!
