The property further benefits from access to 15 acres of private farmland, where the owners have brought the fields back into productivity, and planted over 4500 hedgerow and 400 trees to encourage wildlife and birds.

Further details

The cottage is ideal for families, groups of friends and keen lovers of the outdoor life. It is accessed down a private track and has the benefit of no traffic noise other than the odd tractor or quad bike across the valley.

The night sky is immense as there is no street lighting for miles and wildlife in abundance, from deer and birds to a badger sett in the immediate vicinity. Pets are welcome by arrangement and it is great for children, as long as they are reasonably well behaved (both children and pets!). Golf courses in 10 mile radius - 5 at least

Location description from owner

The England region

The local area
If you are tempted to stray from the peace and tranquillity of Throstle Hall Cottage on the Yorkshire/Lancashire borderthere are many interesting trips out and about.

Surrounded by picturesque villages with ancient churches that are packed with history, you will be in the heart of Pendle Witch country.

The cottage is overlooked by Pendle Hill, the birth place of the Quaker movement when in 1640 George Fox had a vision. There is a Quaker Burial Ground close by and several local meeting places and Quaker reference sites.

Twiston

Enjoy walking and cycling? then there are endless opportunities for both. For the perfect peaceful, relaxing holiday, with access to some excellent invigorating walks and cycle rides right from the gate, Throstle Hall Cottage is an ideal base for Ribble Valley and Yorkshire Dales, and, of course, Pendle Hill and surrounding countryside.

Fishing
Roughlee Trout Fishery a spring and river fed Fly Fishery. 2.5 acre lake open all year from 8am until dusk. www.roughleetroutfishery.com

Raygill Fishing Lakes fly fishing for brown, blue, rainbow & golden trout on two well stocked lakes. www.raygillfisheries.co.uk

Stocks Reservoir is the largest fishery in the North West of England. www.stocksreservoir.com

Events
Pendle Walking Festival is a week of free guided walks catering for all abilities, including children usually held at the end of August beginning of September each year.

Our closest village is Barley, the most popular start point for climbing Pendle Hill. The village boasts The Pendle Inn run by Joanne and Dave, the wonderful Barley Tea Room – look out for our friends Angie, Mike and co for some delicious freshly cooked food. Barley has a vibrant Village Hall which hosts many events. The Barley Mow restaurant and the Cabin in the Car Park complete the eateries in the village.

Perhaps more famous is the village of Downham, 2 miles down the hill, home to the Assheton Family, where Lord and Lady Clitheroe live in the beautiful Downham Hall. The Post Office also doubles up as a local food and gift shop, and does lovely teas, and fish and chips! The village gains much of its fame because of the ducks – in the summer it is a popular picnic spot, and the ducks become very waddly with all the bread they are fed by visitors. The TV programme Born and Bred has been filmed here over the past few years, turning the Assheton Arms into the Railwayman pub, a war memorial appears and we even have a well on the green!

Around and about are many craft centres, and visitor attractions. For more shopping, castle and museums there are the market towns of Clitheroe and Skipton a short drive away. There is also a heritage centre in Barrowford Pendle Heritage Centre. The famous Boundary Mill Stores are 20 minutes drive away www.boundarymill.co.uk

Railway Enthusiasts
Close by are three working preserved steam railways. Each is run by volunteers dedicated to keeping this historic mode of transport alive, for us all to enjoy. We are also only a short drive from the historic market town of Settle, the start of the wonderful Settle to Carlisle railway journey.

“Amazing cottage in stunning location”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

This was our second stay at this beautiful cottage and will definitely be back! If you want stunning views, peace and quiet, cosy log fires in the evening, excellent facilities then this is the place for you! Lots to do in the surrounding area, lovely places to eat. All in all fantastic value for money! Thank you Throstle hall cottage for a lovely much needed break from the "rat race"

“Fabulous - tranquility!”

Reviewed 20 Feb 2012

Unquestionably a fabulous stay - a bumpy access to the property, but nevertheless, an absolute gem of location. If you are looking for solitude then this is the place for you! Would we recommend? - Absolutely, and hope we will return!
