Following the traditional layout of a weavers cottage the - quite steep -stairs lead from the kitchen up to the first floor where there is a large twin bedded room (the 'duck' room we call it because of its duck egg blue theme and pictures). It is possible to have this made up as a large double on request. Next to this is the shared bathroom with bath and shower and then a small cheery single room ideal for a child. Another flight of stairs takes you to the lovely airy attic double room. This has two large velux windows and a truckle bed under the eaves that would suit another child. A cot for infants is also available on request. The house is in a quiet street away from the main road but within 5 minutes walk of shops and restaurants.
Location description from owner
The England region
Walkers is in a quiet street near the centre of Barnoldswick. The town has an unrivalled location and is full of unspoilt character and tradition. It has a quirky history stretching back to the original Viking occupation of the north.
Its name comes from the Norse 'Barnouf's Wick' meaning Barnouf's villa. Barnouf was apparently a shoemarker and set up his business next to the stream that ran through the valley. It is still known as Cloggers Beck. The town lies close to brooding and mysterious Pendle Hill famous as the location for the dark dealings of the Pendle Witches. Their legends live on in the area and you can follow their history and their journeys along a number of trails through the spectacular scenery. A short drive will take you into the Lancastrian Forest of Bowland on one side and the Yorkshire Dales on the other.
The town now boasts a fine variety of small independent shops from antiques to chocolatiers as well as cafes, fish and chips shops and restaurants and pubs. At its heart is the town square which is the venue for the weekly street market and manyother events.
Leave the front door of Walkers Cottage and within minutes you are in open countryside. There are a variety of short circular walks around the town and for the more adventurous there is easy access across Victory Park to the towpath of the Leeds Liverpool canal, which wends its way from historic Greenberfield Locks through the Dales on its way to Skipton. There are plenty of watering holes on the way including the Cross Keys at East Marton, which has great food and is dog-friendly. The canal bank is ideal for walking or cycling, but the Dales also offer a huge range of other activites like rock climbing, caving and horse-riding. If you go in the other direction you head towards Lancashire. A short stroll from the town (about 15 minutes) brings you to the Anchor Inn at Salterforth, great for a drink or a snack.
You can join walks straight from the door and its an easy 5 minute walk into the centre of the town from where you can get buses in the historic Dales market town of Skipton or the Lancashire boarder to Colne and beyond. From the railway stations in Colne and Skipton you can get trains further afield to Leeds, Harrogate or York or Manchester. If you are bringing your car there is on-street parking right outside the door.

We had a nice enough stay and the location was perfect for us, no problem parking outside the house and a quiet location. You can hear the neighbours occasionally as this is a terraced property which we aren't used to but it was only just noticeable The cons: the house was freezing when we arrived as the heating was off. Knowing someone was staying it would've been nice to have arrived at a warm house especially with two small kids coming on a winter afternoon. The smallest bedroom radiator would not work so we had to put both kids in the room with two singles which was fine except the wooden window frame was rotten and there was a gap through which freezing cold air was coming in. Luckily we blocked it and it warmed up fine. The extractor fan in the kitchen did not work which was a pain as we cooked a lot and had to open the back door a few times to air out which let lots of cold winter air in. We also could not find any chopping boards and there was only one decent sized pan and lots of small ones. Everything else in the kitchen was fine but a few more bigger pans would've been useful. The price for the property was very reasonable and I don't expect perfection or even luxury but those things that went wrong should really not have occurred. I would recommend staying here only if those major issues are fixed. Nevertheless we still had a nice time away and it did not ruin our holiday but was just inconvenient.
