Stunning property, part of the Duchy of Lancaster estate, walking distance of Dunsop Bridge, Clitheroe market town close by.

Set in the heart of the Forest of Bowland, (AONB), this detached holiday cottage has been lovingly converted with great attention to quality of fabrics and internal finishes, all co-ordinated by an interior designer to create a wonderfully ambient atmosphere. There’s no need to worry about amenities when you arrive as the owners provide the perfect welcome pack. On request and at cost, a meal cooked in the Puddleducks Tea Room can be ordered to eat in Puddleducks or to collect and take to your accommodation. Root Farm Cottage forms part of the stunning Whitewell Estate, which is owned by Her Majesty the Queen in her capacity as the Duke of Lancaster. The Queen last visited the estate in 2006 and it is known to be one of her favourite parts of the Duchy’s rural estates. The cottage lies within walking distance of Dunsop Bridge, which is regarded to be the geographic centre of the United Kingdom. An ideal location with walks direct from the door. There are quiet lanes for cyclists and challenging off-road terrain for the more adventurous. Wildlife abounds and a wide selection of birds can be observed. Clitheroe with its castle, 7 miles, enjoys a selection of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Shop 500 yards and pub 2 miles.

    Great cottage, bigger than it looks. Hotel quality feel about the place, even had a hot out door tap!

    The only problem we had was letting our 2 dogs out as there were on-site cottages which the dogs could roam into - it would be better if the cottage was 'ring-fenced' so there was no chance to interfere with locals. Also, more information on where to run dogs without going onto farm land.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review we are glad you enjoyed your stay, the ringed fence is something we are thinking about in the near future.

    The cottage was perfect in every way home from home very clean and extra touches of a hamper on arrival was an added bonus. Alison was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for her. We all really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

    Root Farm Cottage is a lovely place to stay . The building and all its contents and facilities are of the first order . Quietness abounds in plenty , and in its setting , alongside the farm , solitude is guaranteed . There is free wi-fi for those rainy days , and lots of walks from the cottage , when its nice weather ( as it was for the whole week in October ) . Plenty of restaurants / pubs etc within short driving distance , and the small market town of Clitheroe ( with castle / market ) is only 10-15 mins drive away . Highly recommend this cottage .

    Excellent holiday.The cottage was amazing we loved it so much and so did our dog. It was like home from home, everything was the best of quality. The location was fantastic, lovely and peaceful and away from the road. Alison and Tom were lovely people and really welcomed us and the welcome hamper was a lovely surprise. We have some lovely memories and photos and we will definitely be returning to this beautiful cottage again.

    Remote, on a working farm. Friendly Alison the host couldn't do enough. Nice touch with the hamper. Great local cafe opposite. Amazing countryside. Everything thought of including towels for the dog and a bowl of water for him.
