The surrounding countryside is beautiful, there are many places that our guests wish to visit. A traditional place is the Lake District, usually Windermere and Ambleside, which can be reached in less than an hour from Wolfen Mill. Lots of pretty villages and towns, amazing views.
Blackpool is a very famous seaside town just a 35 minute drive from here. The Pleasure Beach now has a Nickleodeon theme for younger children. The Pepsi Max roller coaster and other thrilling rides. An ice rink and shows. The Tower is worth a visit, with the ballroom that held the finals of the 'Strictly Come Dancing' in 2010, plus an amazing circus. From the top of the tower you can look back to the Bowland Fells at Wolfen Mill and on a clear day you can see the Isle of Man. Sandcastles is a tropical indoor pool on the promenade. The Illuminations in autumn on the promenade with tram and horse carriage rides.
The football grounds of Blackburn Rovers, Preston Northend and the famous Manchester City and United, plus Liverpool are just an hour away. Whilst the city center of Manchester for great shopping, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Kendals have proven popular. On a rainy day the huge indoor Trafford Centre with cinemas, the amazing Orient eating area and again with great shopping and free car parking is well worth a visit. Liverpool, previously heralded as a city of culture and with its water front designated a world heritage site hosts the Tate art gallery as well as famous attractions dedicated to the Beatles.
For shopping enthusiasts, the discount outlet centres of Cheshire Oaks, the smaller Fleetwood Freeport and Boundary Mill at Colne are good places to spend the day.
Further afield, maybe travel back in time to beautiful York and Chester, with ancient buildings and in York the famous Yorvic museum.
This part of England, both the countryside and the towns, has an abundance of beautiful places to spend time.

"Beautiful area, shame about the cottage"
We booked for 7 nights mid September to take our small dog for a countryside break. Unfortunately although the property had been described as pet friendly, it was located literally right on a country… More
Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us, although we are quite devastated by your posting about your experience at our family run enterprise. If any part of housekeeping is not up to scratch we would expect to learn of this directly from you rather than via a posting on a review site like this. Its not only the polite and proper way to do it but also how can we be expected to help and ensure you have a good holiday after you've left and gone home.
The list of defects you mention can neither be believed by us or checked out fully, this is so out of character to our usual standards and the findings from our own guests surveys, were over 98% of guests reward us with top marks for cleanliness out of a current total of 321 respondents.
Why would anyone not make contact with us regarding such a poor level of cleanliness that you suggest. We invite you, in our pre-arrival letter, quite clearly, to tell us if 'anything' is not to your satisfaction. In the property we have a telephone for you with a 'direct line' to our office and our Mobile phone but we heard nothing. Our guest information folder clear requests that anything you are not happy about is best reported whilst with us rather than afterwards.
Courtyard Cottage is a delightful property with lots if individuality, At one time this was the steam house to power the mill and is set aside next to the courtyard and the gardens. The property description does state 'The landing leads to a small shower room with power shower' This is a standard 700x700 cubicle. Our photographs show the windows in the lounge and the bedroom and light level is not an issue for us in this quaint 350 year old cottage.
We live just next door and our dog lived for 15 years here and was never put on a lead in the vicinity. If your dog is well behaved the issue of traffic (about 10 cars a day) which might pass down this very private country lane should not give concern to any dog owner, indeed the access to our stunning countryside and our own woodlands from the door step is welcomed by all..normally.
We are so pleased though that you enjoyed the area, the Forest of Bowland is simply delightful and well worth exploring. Had you found the courage to speak with us whilst on your break, we could have addressed your problems - even perhaps moved you to another of our collection of individual properties where you might have been more comfortable to continue with your exploration of the Area.
Can I please plead with you though that in future if you have a complaint, allow folks to help put things right - I think that is only fair, don't you?
