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.
