About Ian and Sue 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 and Sue 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.

Really great location. House was perfect and super clean!
Thank you for your lovely review.
I booked Oakdean Cottage for my family coming around for my wedding and they had an amazing stay.
The cottage was brand new, very spacious and well equipped. Sue and Ian are very easy to communicate with and very accommodating.
I would definitely recommend their property.
Whalley cottage in the hills
This cottage is stunning and so spacious and newly furnished ! Ian and Sue are wonderful hosts and took care of our every need . Would recommend this to a family or couple for a great stay so close to Whalley and Clitheroe !!
Very well equipped cottage, it had everything we needed.
Great for exploring the Ribble Valley. Hosts Ian and Sue were lovely and very helpful. We were all comfortable and felt at home there.
A beautiful and very clean cottage, with some lovely welcoming touches. For example, we have a small baby and not only were a cot and high chair provided as promised, but there were also some children's books and bath toys.
The Forest of Bowland was also well worth exploring!
We will definitely stay again!
Oakdean cottages review.
Stunning views over the Ribble Valley make these cottages a wonderful place to stay. The accommodation was of a very high standard with welcome touches on arrival such as biscuits and flowers. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed for self catering guests. The cottages were beautifully clean and all appliances worked efficiently. The owners, Ian and Sue, were available to welcome guests and very helpful in sorting out any problems. All of the family party were staying in the three cottages to attend a wedding and everyone praised the accommodation and relaxing atmosphere of the cottages.
Thank you for your lovely review we are pleased you all enjoyed your stay with us.

Oakdean Cottages are 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.
