Location description from owner
The 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.

“Extremely pleasant surroundings and accomodation”
On arrival it was clear this was a great choice, The cottage was set in a working farm yard with spectacular views all around. The owner was there to meet us and could not have been more helpful, The cottage itself had everything you could possibly want and even fresh eggs, milk and a tin of freshly baked scones were left for us. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to others and I certainly feel we will be back at Cobden View again soon. Thanks to all involved.

Beautiful cottage in the midst of a working farm. Very clean and well stocked. Beautiful views and great sunsets. Maggie and John could not have been nicer. I feel as if we made new friends besides being very well looked after.

“The perfect peaceful country holiday.”
A lovely cottage in a beautiful setting with stunning views, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The dogs were very well catered for and we were extremely comfortable. The cottage is very well equipped & offers the perfect peaceful holiday. A fabulous base for walking & places of interest to visit, not to mention that all the local people were very friendly & helpful. We will definitely be returning to this cottage!
We're delighted that Cobden View, and our beautiful Forest of Bowland and Sabden Valley countryside, worked their magic and you enjoyed your holiday with us. Thank you for your lovely comments.
“We loved our stay here”
This is a beautifully clean cottage with everything you need (and more). Our hosts were so friendly and left us beautiful scones and fresh eggs on arrival which was more than welcome. The views from the cottage are lovely and there is a safe front garden for the kids to play in (young kids would need to be supervised). My children (7 and 10) had a ball playing with the many dogs on the farm and checking out the chickens etc- it was hard to get them to leave and go for a day out. Many thanks Margaret

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.
