  • "My friend and I enjoyed our stay at the stables and would consider going again."

    It was clean, comfortable and lovely modern kitchen/diner.The only thing would be the lack of patio use, it needs updating, but to be fair, to our host Andrew, our british weather hasn't been the best for doing outdoor work. Andrew was friendly and easy to talk to.

    Thanks very much for your feedback. I am glad you both enjoyed your stay in Trawden. Yes the weather isn't always on our side but the patio is ready to receive the barbeque and chimenea when the warm weather arrives. Property Owner

The property

The Stables is a charming, two-bedroom stable conversion resting in the small, Lancashire village of Trawden.

Woven with original features throughout, including lovely, beamed ceilings, The Stables enjoys a peaceful setting, tucked away from the hustle and bustle, making it a wonderful base for couples, small families or four friends, looking to enjoy rural Lancashire.

Park up and head indoors, to be met by the homely sitting room, where you can lounge after a day of sightseeing, with a sleek, wall-mounted electric fire to light for a little warmth.

Head into the kitchen/diner, fully-equipped for a self-catered stay, where you can prepare and enjoy meals together, or if the weather allows, set the patio table and relish in an alfresco affair, ending the evening with a glass of wine and some planning.

Catch some rest from the two well-appointed bedrooms on offer, including a double with a sleek en-suite shower room, and a twin, with a bathroom and cloakroom completing the home.

Previously voted as one of the best places to live in the Northwest, the village has the Trawden Arms pub, where guests can dine out and sample some real ale, Jackie & Francesca’s Old Rock Cafe & Cake Shop for brunch, a Post Office which opens on Mondays, the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin Trawden, and a playground, whilst further amenities lie in nearby Colne.

Wycoller Hall and Country Park can be reached by a stroll or short car journey, reputed to be Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, which guests can tour and enjoy refreshments from, or head to Haworth, which is only a few miles across the Pennines, possible to follow the Bronte Trail; here you can also join the Keighley/Worth Valley line for a steam trip with the Railway Children.

For wet weekends, head to Boundary Mill Outlet, with fantastic discounts and a range of shops, or if you’d prefer to feel at one with nature, both Pendle Hill and nearby Boulsworth Hill await walkers of all ages and abilities.

With Halifax, Hebden Bridge, Heptonstall, Skipton, Blackburn and Bradford reachable by car, and Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds by rail, there’s so much to see and do in the area.

Enjoy the best of Lancashire and Yorkshire from The Stables.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Haworth 10 miles; Skipton 11.7 miles; Harrogate 35 miles.

Trawden is a small village in the Trawden Forest parish of Pendle, at the foot of Boulsworth Hill, on the border land between Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales. Boulsworth Hill is a large expanse of moorland, the highest point of the South Pennines of south-eastern Lancashire, England, separating the District of Pendle from Calderdale. Its summit, Lad Law, is 1,696 ft (517 m) above sea level, and commands views over Pendle Hill, the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales and the South Pennines. On an exceptionally clear day it is possible to see Scafell Pike and Helvellyn to the north, High Peak to the south and Blackpool Tower to the west. The Brontë Way and the Pendle Way both pass along the slopes of Boulsworth Hill, providing routes across unspoilt moorland and pasture land. Agriculture was the main industry of the village and surrounding area, although it did have several cotton mills, most of which have now been demolished and converted into housing. As a way of encouraging people to visit Trawden and the surrounding area, a small group of village residents organise and mobilise other villagers in order to hold the annual Trawden Garden Festival and Scarecrow Trail. This takes place over the first weekend in July. Trawden also holds an annual agricultural show each August, which many farmers, riders and people from all around enjoy and take part in. Dating back to the 10th century, the area is famous for the ruins of Wycoller Hall where Charlotte Bronte set parts of her famous novel, Jane Eyre. Clapper Bridge is close to the ruins of Wycoller Hall and probably dates from the late 18th or early 19th century, whilst Clam Bridge is a single slab laid across Wycoller Beck and is more than 1000 years old and is listed as an Ancient Monument. A short drive brings you to nearby Haworth, home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antiques shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere and all this against a backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby the famous Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway, brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The market town of Skipton, Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive along one of the most scenic moorlands in the area, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
