Located on a working sheep farm in the beautiful Ribble Valley area of Lancashire, Horseshoe Cottage provides comfortable and thoughtfully laid out holiday accommodation, ideal for couples looking for a relaxing rural break. Attached to the owner’s home, this self-contained barn conversion offers a good standard of comfort. Surrounded by farmland and with stunning views, this property is great for people who enjoy walking and there are plenty of lovely spots within the grounds for a picnic or even to enjoy a spot of trout or salmon fishing on Swanside Beck. Horseshoe Cottage is located 2 miles from the village of Sawley which has a great dining pub situated alongside the River Ribble. There are some lovely walks around the remains of Sawley Abbey, a Cistercian abbey which dates back to the 12th century. Whilst Sawley falls within the borough of Lancashire’s Ribble Valley, it was historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire so is ideally placed for exploring both of these beautiful counties. The village of Gisburn is 2½ miles away and Gisburn Forest which has some great mountain biking trails, is approximately 10 miles away.

The Ribble Valley district is famous for its unspoilt countryside, pretty villages, quaint market towns and a wealth of superb dining pubs and restaurants. There are also lots of farm shops and tea rooms making this a real foodie destination. The popular market towns of Clitheroe is just 7 miles and Skipton 13 miles, both of which have their own castle and offer a good range of shops, bars and restaurants, making them well worth a visit. Other places nearby include Bolton Abbey which nestles on the banks of the River Wharf and boasts miles of stunning walks within the grounds, the Forest of Bowland which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Grassington with its quaint shops and cobbled streets and the cathedral city and spa town of Harrogate. Should you wish to venture further afield, Lancaster, the Lake District and the Fylde Coast which includes popular coastal towns such as Blackpool and Lytham St Annes, can all be reached in under an hour by car. Just over an hour’s drive will take you into York and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. With so much to see and do, Horseshoe Cottage really is the perfect choice for those wanting everything close by whilst enjoying the peace and relaxation of the countryside. Shop and pub 2½ miles, restaurant 1 mile.

We had a brilliant 4 night stay in this cottage - the couple who own It made us feel very welcome and we had a bottle of wine and a bottle of milk waiting for us on arrival. The area was beautiful and well worth a visit. We would definitely stay again.

Absolutely beautiful location especially the view from the hot tub you need a car to get about as no amenities are in walking distance enjoyed our 4 night mini break just what we both needed after our hectic house move

A lovely comfortable cottage with beautiful views. The hot tub is a plus so is the steam train seen occasionally at the bottom of the field. Wine and chocolates on arrival, a lovely touch.

Had a great time

My wife and I had a great 4 nights here. We felt chilled out and a great location to visit many places nearby such as Skipton and Moorecombe Bay. Some amazing farm shops (Keelham farmshop) and restaurants within 20 minute drive away. The owners are great and the nice welcome gift was a nice touch. There would be a few minor tweaks that I would suggest to make it outstanding but this is my personal view and wouldn't stop me booking again.

A very relaxing week had at this cottage, we had a very warm welcome from the owners with Prosecco and chocolates waiting. We was there for our honeymoon and after learning this the owner offered to drive us to a local restaurant so we could have a drink. The hot tub was great and with a great view. I would recommend anyone to stay here. We will definitely return.

Chris 16/07/2021

My partner and I stayed at the cottage for 4 nights and loved it. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The cottage itself was brilliant, very clean and the hot tub was fantastic with great views of the farm. There are many things to visit in a short drive away including Clitheroe and Blackpool. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking.

Tom 26/07/2021

We have made it an annual thing to go to a cottage with a hot tub without our children every year, as a treat to ourselves, so we have been to a few different ones now. This cottage was absolutely perfect, we were not disturbed at all, and we could spend all day in the big comfy bed binging Netflix if we wanted, and when we wanted to go out, the owner gave us a taxi number to get us into clitheroe, which is lovely, lots of bars and restaurants. The hot tub was fab, and the cows gave us a few laughs, one playing with a hosepipe, throwing it up and down! We loved our week surrounded by fields, and left feeling totally relaxed. We will be returning for sure.
