Bungalow | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
A 4 star, sleep 4 Forest of Bowland holiday cottage in spectacular countryside. Allows dogs.
Enjoy the stunning scenery surrounding Cobden View, a detached, comfortable cottage in its own grounds, at Cobden Farm, a hillside working farm at Sabden in the beautiful Forest of Bowland Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Cobden View is spacious yet cosy. All on one level, it has two double bedrooms, a kitchen dining room, a sitting room with wood burner and widescreen TV, a hallway, a four-piece modern bathroom with underfloor heating and a large utility room with plenty of space for boots, bikes and prams and drying clothes. It also has some chairs where you can sit and watch the changing colours of Pendle Hill.
Relax and absorb the tranquillity as you look out across Sabden Valley towards Pendle Hill. On cooler days, you can light up the wood burner in the sitting room for a cosy focus. It all adds up to a beautiful get-away-from-it-all setting - yet still within five miles of main and motorway road networks.
There is plenty to do and see in the Forest of Bowland, Ribble Valley and further afield. Walk out of the door and set off on one of the many public footpaths that crisscross the Valley (a Pendle Hill walk is a must-do); link up with one of the cycle or mountain bike routes not far away; visit the nearby market town of Clitheroe with its ancient castle and £3m visitor centre. There's a good swimming pool too.
Tour the pretty and historic villages of the Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland. Whalley Abbey, Whalley itself, Hurst Green and Stonyhurst with its Tolkein Trail are definites for a visit. For a full day out, Skipton, Lancaster, Manchester, Blackpool and the Fylde Coast, the Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District and Haworth Country are all in easy reach.
Sabden village is a mile away by road, but nearer by footpaths. It has three churches, two pubs, three shops and the long-established Pendle Antique Centre which is well worth a visit.
Pendle Ski club is nearby, as are several golf courses, fishing lakes and riding stables.
The list 'where to eat' places in the Forest of Bowland is amazing - just check out the national award winning Ribble Valley Food Trail for 'starters'.

Northern England region
The award winning Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a place that wins hearts and minds. Unspoiled, a haven for all visitors - and for walkers, mountain bikers, cyclists (Sir Bradley Wiggins trains on the fells), birdwatchers, outdoor enthusiasts, yet with plenty to do and within easy distance of towns and cities across Northern England that offer different attractions.
It is central to Northern England, and Cobden View is ideally placed for visitors to benefit from the network of main roads, motorways links, bus and train routes all within five miles.
If you're driving, Preston, Skipton, Blackpool, Manchester, the Yorkshire Dales, the North York Moors, Bronte Country, Leeds, and the Lake District are all about an hour away.
The Forest of Bowland and Ribble Valley, which overlap in parts, have dozens of lovely villages and places all worth seeing, walking or driving to.
Cobden View looks out to Pendle Hill, famous as the home of Lancashire Witches and you can see the everchanging colours of the Hill that stands proud and alone between the fells of the Trough of Bowland and the Pennine foothills to the east.
Just set off walking on one of the footpaths on the farm and see for yourselves.
Buses stop at the bottom of our farm road that leads up to Cobden View at Cobden Farm. Buses link up at Whalley, Burnley or the Clitheroe Interchange which serves also the train station.
Just a few of the places to visit are:
Ribchester with its Roman museum, where you can walk along the River Ribble, cafes and popular play area for children; Whalley with its Abbey, independent shops and restaurants;
Clitheroe with its visitor centre and castle keep, independent shops, twice weekly market, busy music and entertainment venue The Grand, a riverside play area at Edisford Bridge throngs with children on finer days.
Downham, an unspoiled village, has been the setting for film and TV programmes.
Chatburn has the long established Hudson's Ice Cream shop.
Dunsop Bridge, the centre of Great Britain and part of the Queen's Duchy of Lancaster estate, has Puddleducks cafe and some gorgeous riverside walks.
Slaidburn, again with riverside walks, is steeped in history.
Cobblehey Gardens and cafe.
The Wildboar Park is a great day out if you have children.
Barley at the foot of Pendle Hill's Big End has some good walks - including the challenge of climbing the stone steps to the top of the hill.
Skipton is a lovely market town too, with a three-times weekly market set out on the main street and with a castle, ever popular with visitors. The Leeds Liverpool canal winds through the town, with canal boats offering day trips.
If you're feeling active, try the mountain bike rides or walks through Gisburn Forest; visit Stocks Reservoir where a village lies under the water - seen only when the water is low; Beacon Fell Country Park with a lovely visitor centre is not far away.
Head for the Trough of Bowland - our own version of Glencoe landscape - to Lancaster, Garstang, Chipping. Unbeatable. Or just aim for Jubilee Tower which has panoramic views across Morecambe Bay.
The country lanes and mass of public footpaths crisscross the whole area. Walks from the door at Cobden View can take you anywhere you want.
There are fishing lakes and the Leeds Liverpool canal not far away, at least five golf courses, swimming pools and riding stables.
If you enjoy shopping, a visit to Boundary Mill at the end of the M65 at Colne is a must. It will keep you there all day.
Barden Mill, another shopping outlet, is at Pendle Village off Junction 12 of the M65.

A beautiful cottage, in a beautiful location. Surrounded by incredible sights; this was the ideal getaway. The cottage's location was central to many different points of interest, and the nearby village provided all necessities. The cottage was immaculate and finished to a high standard, but with comfort kept at the forefront. The owners were friendly and welcoming, with superb contact leading up to our stay. Margaret went above and beyond for us and we'll definitely visit again.
