About the property

Cottage near Sabden, Clitheroe, Lancashire, England - Peaceful Location With Great Views, Close To Pendle Hill

In an elevated setting on a hillside farm and surrounded by stunning scenery across Sabden Valley towards Pendle Hill in the beautiful Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Approached along a farm track, The Boskins dates back to the 1700s and has been converted to offer a charming cottage, retaining original feature beams, underfloor heating, a wood burning stove for cooler days and complemented with contemporary furnishings of a very good standard, it is the perfect getaway at any time. The private patio is ideal for enjoying the peace and quiet or al fresco dining and there is a traditional wood-fired hot tub for those relaxing moments. The sheep and lambs in the spring graze the fields with walks directly from the cottage across countryside and woodland. The area offers plenty of opportunity for enjoyment such as walking and cycling, Pendle Ski club dry slopes and the challenge of Pendle Hill is just a few minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tripadvisor: 'This is simply the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed in! The standard of cleanliness was extremely high throughout. There was a tray of tea, coffee and biscuits awaiting our arrival. There was a plentiful supply of colour-coordinated beautifully soft towels and even dressing gowns!...'

Tripadvisor: 'Absolutely gorgeous cottage. Relaxing, comfortable and homely feel to the place. Everything about the stay was perfect...'

Tripadvisor: 'We had a very peaceful and relaxing break at The Boskins. We loved the location and the cottage, on a working farm, was beautifully furnished and equipped. If you are looking for a getaway break in a lovely part of the world, this place is for you...'

Tripadvisor: 'The Boskins is a great little cottage set on a working farm. We were able to forget about our cars, and walk straight out in to the beautiful local countryside...'

We had a lovely stay in the cottage. The hot was amazing. The double bed was wonderful and it is so quiet and dark at night. We slept so good.

We will return.

Sorry to leave

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well equipped, comfortable and clean. It was the perfect base for getting out and about. The views from the farm are amazing and we loved being up on top of a hill away from everything. And, our daughter loved seeing the chickens, sheep and cows every day!

Good base to explore great hot tub

  • 4 of 5

A good base to explore the area, hot tub great once you get it going. Couple of things needed attention in cottage like freezer not working and really noisy floor boards in bedrooms. Shower/bathroom ceiling not ideal for a tall family but overall a relaxing g few days

Great value for money!

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my partner and another couple stayed here over New Year with 2 dogs. Overall the accommodation was clean, modern, comfortable and excellent value for money. However there were some negatives that we encountered during our stay; first was the cattle grid at the end of the drive which made it near enough impossible to take the dogs on a walk despite the place being 'pet friendly'. Our partners had to carry 2 large dogs over the cattle grid before and after walks just to get past it, as the dogs nearly broke their legs trying to get over it!! Second was the hot tub, we used a whole box worth of wood and nearly 5 hours trying to get the thing going and even then I wouldn't class it as 'hot'. When we then asked for more kindling the next day to try again, we were given half a small bag reluctantly which meant we couldn't use it again.

The accommodation advertises itself as 'pet friendly' and 'customer focused' but not once did we see the owners, despite them only living next door, even to ask if everything was okay and as for being 'pet friendly', if they made some alterations to the entrance to the farm it would be more accommodating.

Overall, the location was beautiful and the accommodation great value for money.

We had a great time in this cottage. It was clean and well kept and we had no hassle what so ever. We all loved the isolation and the walking around the area. The hot tub was fantastic. Highly recommended.
