The property

Longridge 5 miles.

This pretty timber lodge is situated in the secluded and unspoilt countryside, just five miles from the town of Longridge in Lancashire.

Perfect for couples or a small family, this is a wonderful base to get away from it all and take in the peaceful surroundings.

Upon entering the property, you are welcomed into the open-plan living area, comprising of a well-equipped kitchen/diner and a sitting area, where the sofa sits facing the wall-mounted TV and the alluring electric flame-effect fire.

Retire to the two comforting bedrooms, including a king-size bed and single, served by a lovely shower room.

To the outside is a delightful patio where you can enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon beverage whilst taking in the beautiful garden surroundings, with lockable bike storage and stabling for horses if required.

With a wide range of footpaths and cycle routes immediately nearby, it provides the ideal base for an activity holiday.

Your closest pub, The Green Man, is just a short walk away in the village of Inglewhite, whilst a greater range of amenities can be found in Longridge, including two supermarkets and three pubs.

For a change of scenery, take a short drive to the historical city of Preston, boasting inspiring architecture, the striking Harris Museum and Art Gallery and the Ribble Steam Railway, which is among the largest collection of steam locomotives in the UK.

Alternatively, head north and explore the gracious landscapes of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, promising a memorable outdoor experience.

After a day’s outings, return to the comfort of Garden Cottage for an evening of relaxation and rejuvenation.

About the location


Ribchester 3.5 miles; Preston 8 miles

Longridge is a medium-sized town and civil parish in the borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire. Situated 8 miles north-east of the city of Preston, at the western end of Longridge Fell, above the River Ribble. Longridge initially developed outwards from an area around St. Lawrence's Church, at the boundary of the townships of Dilworth and Alston and to the south of the modern-day town centre. Many of the buildings are built of locally quarried sandstone and despite modern developments; the town centre remains largely as it was when it was first established. The town holds a portfolio of gift shops, cafes, antiques and art studios together with a quaint cinema, plus numerous food outlets from takeaways to gastro pubs. It is also home to an Air Training Corps squadron and an Army Cadet Force detachment. Its nearest neighbours are Grimsargh and the Roman town of Ribchester, with its Roman museum and beautiful church of St Mary’s on the banks of the river Ribble. Clitheroe castle is only 20 minutes down the road. Here there is another wealth of interest, from the historic Brundleholme Hall to the famous Byrnes wine shop. To the southeast Longridge Field Day is a long-standing annual event that consists of a parade through the town, and various attractions on the town's recreational playing field. The Forest of Bowland (AONB) shows off an expanse of gentle and tidy lowlands criss-crossed with dry stone walls and dotted with picturesque farms and villages. The hen harrier is the bird symbolised on the Forest of Bowland’s logo as it is their most important breeding ground in England. Beyond the Harrier there is a wealth of other wildlife to be spotted from Kingfishers to the Red-Legged Grouse. The rivers Ribble, Calder and Hodder converge near the prestigious Catholic Stonyhurst College, providing idyllic landscapes and walks, not least of which – The Tolkien Trail – lead to an abundance of pubs to quench the thirst afterwards. The area sports numerous agricultural shows, art exhibitions and day festivals of all sorts throughout the summer and is within reach of the Lancaster canal and city, Blackpool and the Lake District, so there is plenty to keep everyone occupied.
