Ribble Cottage – Sleeps 4

Ribble Cottage was designed to be luxurious and we were delighted when Visit England awarded the cottage 5 stars, the very best possible for self catering accommodation. Ribble adjoins Hodder Cottage overlooking beautiful gardens. The layout is open plan, spacious and the cottage has many modern comforts including zone controlled underfloor heating.

There are two bedrooms that sleep four people, each with their own plush en-suites, a half bath and overhead shower in one and a double shower in the other so great for a family or two couples sharing.  The modern kitchen houses all of the latest appliances – a washer/dryer, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer.

If you are keen to cook there is a fully equipped kitchen and an extendable dining table that will seat six comfortably. There are two sofas, a large flat screen TV with Freeview, BluRay DVD and WiFi throughout.  The main bi-fold doors can be opened out to reveal a continuous patio, an outside dining area and view to the woods beyond. There is a BBQ area too, perfect for outdoor evenings in the summer months.
