We spent a wonderful weekend at the cottage in the Ribble Valley. The location is fantastic, we had magical wintery views across the valley and the surrounding woods and lanes are beautiful. The cottage itself it spotless, so clean everything is like new and stocked with everything you can think of that you would need. The underfloor heating was a treat, you wouldn't have known how cold it was outside. The hosts dropped off a box of toys and books for our 5 year old which was brilliant and kept her entertained and we followed their recommendations for a great walk, the Pendle Sculpture Walk as well as several pub suggestions all of which were fab. Turns out the area is not short of a great country pub! We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for a great stay!

Great Place To Stay

We were made very welcome by Ian, Sue and Anna. We stayed for 5 nights in January in Hodder Cottage while visiting family in Blackburn. Very cozy, warm and clean, great amenities. Fantastic location. We'll be back.

Life Saver!!

We approached Anna, Ian & Sue back in Sept as we sold our house and new build would not be ready until week before Christmas. They kindly agreed a 3 month let of the Calder Cottage. It was a real home from home, facilities were just excellent, it was like living at home and the stress of being homeless was hugely reduced. We have already introduced friends and family to their lovely facilities and our friend from Germany has already stayed and loved it. Facilities and location to the stunning Ribble Valley are perfect. We feel we have made good friends and they were so welcoming. Thanks Anna, Ian & Sue x

Cozy Christmas

Our family of 4 fit perfectly in this well appointed modern cottage. We had such a nice and cozy Christmas away from home here. Sue and Ian were very welcoming and even set up a Christmas tree for us! Would stay here again.

First Class Accommodation

We stayed for 3 nights in Ribble Cottage in December. Outside temperatures were close to freezing but the cottage was wonderfully cosy and warm. The cottage is furnished to a very high and tasteful standard, spotlessly clean, and is equipped with everything you would need for a comfortable self catering holiday with secure off road parking.
Very well thought out accommodation. The patio, garden and grounds are well kept with beautiful views from windows across the valley. We enjoyed local walks from the cottage and exploring the villages and towns nearby. We would love to stay again - the best endorsement we could give.

I´ll be back! :)

Where to start? Just a really great place to stay!

Loved everything, but what left me really impressed was the awesome views and animals just a 2min walk from the cottage. Such a nice place to be and the perfect basecamp for a good time in Lancashire.

Thanks for everything, i´ll be back!

Great Place To Stay

We have stayed in Hodder Cottage twice this year, on both occasions with our daughter and family. We were all very impressed with it - there's plenty of space, it's well equipped and it's comfortable. We appreciated the extra welcoming touches (milk and juice in the fridge, flowers in the living room). It's in an attractive area, with lovely views of Pendle Hill and surrounding countryside as you approach the Cottage. It's a short drive from Clitheroe , which we particularly like (it has some nice independent shops which are a rare find these days). Ian, Sue and Anna are extremely helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
