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 Blackburn

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.

great stay and perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cottages before, and chose the smaller cottage this time, as four of us and not six - thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the flexibility offered by Ian and Sue. Fantastic décor and home from home, so will be returning again in the near future - thank you again for a wonderful stay :)

Lovely cottage, very well equipped

  • 4 of 5

We've just spent a lovely week staying in Calder Cottage. The cottage was clean and very well equipped. As we have young children we tend to cook dinner for ourselves and the kitchen was a home from home enabling us to do this with relative ease. Beds were comfortable and plenty of towels were provided, along with dressing gowns. Sue brought some toys around for the kids which was a lovely touch and very well received. Even though this cottage is attached to the owners home you didn't get the feeling you were being constantly watched but felt if you needed something they would be more than happy to assist. Overall a lovely place that received a thumbs up from the kids and we'll definitely return at some point.

Perfect cottage, perfect location, perfect hosts.

The cottage fulfilled all our needs and our hosts were particularly welcomming and helpful. Thank you Sue, for helping me out with hairspray, perfume etc. when our suitcase got lost on the way from Sweden to Manchester airport.

Calder Cottage is the perfect place from which to enjoy special interest holidays. Much of our Ribble Valley location lies within The Forest of Bowland, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you fish, we are perfectly located for the River Loud, River Hodder and River Ribble. Wildlife and Bird watching are also particularly popular with the Trough of Bowland, heather clad moors and wooded valleys all on our doorstep. Martin Mere, the WWF wetland in Burscough is also less than an hour away.

Walking, cycling and mountain biking are popular pursuits with our guests, as is horse riding as we are close to the famous North Lancashire Bridleway that runs from Chipping to the edge of the Lake District.

Other attractions popular with guests include: Alton Towers, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, East Lancashire Railway, The J.R.R Tolkien Trail and the East Lancashire Railway.

All can be organised and enjoyed throughout your stay and should you need transport anywhere, we would be more than happy to arrange it for you.
