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. The owner’s who run the Puddleducks Tea Room are happy to provide a Saturday paper and a meal for the day of your arrival which can be delivered to the cottage (at cost). 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.

    couldn't fault it in terms of spec. Beautiful. Maybe a bit too far out for us to return next time we're 'up north' but even so, it was lovely.

    Second year staying here as we loved it so much the first year, unfortunately standards have dropped slightly. On arrival we found dog hair in the fridge, the dishwasher had not been unloaded, there were dog toilet bags in the dryer. The barbecue was in cleaned. The loft door was left wide open and there was a dead spider in the drawers of one bedroom. There was only enough towels for two people yet we booked for four. We had to go and find the on site caretaker as they did not come and introduce themselves, however there dog did come and do its business on our grass at times. The outside bins were not emptied for the two weeks we were there. The place itself is beautiful but not 5 star anymore.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments and I’m sorry your stay wasn’t as enjoyable as your previous visit. Your visit took place before the property changed hands, the property is cleaned thoroughly and I pride myself on doing a thorough job as the more recent reviews show. We hope to welcome you back for a third visit.
