About Crumbleholme Cottage

Crumbleholme Cottage is a pretty stone cottage on the outskirts of Ribchester village in the sublime Ribble Valley. The cottage sleeps up to four people in two charming bedrooms and has impressive eco-friendly credentials, having received a Gold Green Tourism Award from Visit Britain. Families, friends and even couples who appreciate the extra space love this cottage not only for its proximity to independent shops, cafes and friendly pubs like the Ribchester Arms - all of which are about half a mile away, but also for the easy access to fantastic footpaths and cycling routes. With a spa and pool on-site, you can head home feeling completely relaxed!

Ribchester is an ancient village dating back thousands of years. The Roman fort of Bremetennacum once dominated the area, and its remains lie beneath the church and churchyard. The Roman Museum is a great place to find out more about these former residents. Ribchester is part of the Ribble Valley, much of which is within the Forest of Bowland National Landscape. In addition to the beautiful footpaths, the area is a favourite with mountain bikers.

Spend your days leisurely discovering the delights of the area's lovely villages and towns. There has been a regular market at nearby Clitheroe since the 12th Century with the current market days being Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. After you've browsed the stalls and picked up some fresh bread and veg, head up to Clitheroe Castle and enjoy the view. If you feel like a day in the city, then park your car at the station and take the train to Manchester, a journey of about an hour. Fifteen minutes from the cottage, Whalley is a lovely spot for lunch, with a church dating back to 682CE and the romantic ruins of a Cistercian abbey. Head to Longridge for general shopping, where you will find two big supermarkets, a retro cinema, and antique shops. It is also the start of a lovely walk to the top of Longridge Fell.

For those happy to travel further afield, the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks are within easy reach by car for a day trip, opening up an even larger choice of attractions and opportunities for outdoor adventure.

Attractions nearby include Stonyhurst College, Beacon Fell, Brockholes Nature Reserve and Bowland Wild Boar Park. There are excellent golf courses and riding stables within easy reach, and bike hire is available in Preston, Blackburn and Burnley. The stretch of river between Ribchester and Redbank is good for grayling, dace and trout, with fishing permits sold at the village shop opposite the Black Bull pub. It doesn't matter what time of the year you stay at Crumbleholme Cottage because you will always find something fun to do.

Accommodation Comprises:

Crumbleholme Cottage looks like it's been in situ for decades, but this pretty holiday home is a relatively recent addition to the landscape, with the owners having used traditional materials and eco-friendly methods to give guests the reassurance that, by staying here, they are limiting their carbon footprint.


  • No matter what the weather is like, guests will receive a warm welcome thanks to efficient underfloor heating and a log burner ready to light. The open plan living space has a seating area with a Smart TV and a DVD player, and the cottage has WiFi throughout so that guests can use their own devices.
  • The dining area has a big picture window that looks out onto the garden, with plenty of space for four people to eat together. Glass doors open onto the terrace and frame far-reaching views across the Ribble Valley.
  • Cooking is a pleasure in the modern kitchen which is fully-equipped with all of the appliances and utensils guests need to cook and serve tasty meals. The wide bench doubles as a breakfast bar and there are four stools.


  • Master bedroom with a super-kingsized (6ft-wide) bed, proper storage and an ensuite wetroom with a shower, WC and a handbasin.
  • Twin bedroom with two full-sized (3ft-wide) single beds, ample storage and an ensuite wetroom with a shower, WC and a handbasin. The countryside view from the window is a wonderful thing to wake up to.

Outside: The cottage has a private garden with a sheltered hot tub, terrace with a barbecue and a table and chairs, and off-street parking.
