About the property

2 Bedroom Garden Cottage, set in tranquil grounds.

Calder Cottage is a quaint, quiet and well connected holiday cottage that is modern and incredibly well equipped. There are two bedrooms (one double and one twin), a master bathroom and a kitchen diner. The separate living room has double doors opening out onto a good sized patio and garden surrounded by the beautiful and tranquil Ribble Valley countryside. There are no busy roads or flight paths here, but there is a village pub five minutes walk away.

Local attractions include Pendle Hill and the historic village of Whalley each offering short walks or long hikes straight out of the door. You can be in The Lake District, Cumbria or The Yorkshire Dales in just 90 mins by car and we are always happy to help organise trips, travel and transport for anywhere you might like to go.

Calder Cottage is perfect for couples or families with children and every detail has been thought out to ensure you enjoy your stay.

About Ian Sherrington

We are Ian and Sue and have been lucky enough to welcome holidaymakers to The Ribble Valley from all over the world. Whether you prefer your privacy or to be shown the local sights of Lancashire, we look forward to making you feel very welcome. As neighbours you will hear very little from us. There are no pets in the grounds, so local walkers and the occasional grandchild of ours are likely the only other people you might come across throughout your stay.

Why Ian Sherrington chose Ribble Valley

The Ribble Valley and surrounding areas have been ranked one of the safest and nicest places to live in the UK. We moved here many years ago and have been in love with it ever since. Our location couldn't be better suited to explore the North of England. The coast is close, The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales sit on our doorstep and we can be in London or Glasgow in a little over two hours, all benefits our guests continue to enjoy.

Excellent property that is so well looked after and amazingly clean!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in the heart of the Ribble Valley countryside. We had everything we could possible need and more. Ian and Sue are fantastic hosts and give you lots of privacy but are there if you need anything. So wonderful we have rebooked to come back again in August and I suspect will be booking many more stays in the future

Many thanks
