About Dinkley Cottage

Dinkley Cottage is as pretty as they come. Built to exact standards with impressive eco-friendly credentials, this charming holiday home feels as if it has always been part of the beautiful Ribble Valley landscape. It is only half-a-mile from Ribchester and within walking distance of the village shop, park and pubs. With space for up to four people to sleep in two comfortable bedrooms, Dinkley Cottage is the perfect place for couples, families, friends or even independent travellers on a solo trip. Relaxation is certainly on the cards, with Hidden Oaks spa and pool on-site with a range of treatments and exclusive hire available.

Ribchester is a lovely community with a friendly atmosphere. There is evidence that people lived here back in the Bronze Age, although it is better known for its Roman fort thanks to the ruins of Bremetennacum fort and baths. A team of enthusiastic volunteers staff the Roman Museum where visitors can find out more about the soldiers garrisoned there.

While Ribchester has a small village shop (where you can also buy fishing permits) and a monthly farmers' market, most visitors go to nearby Longridge where there are three supermarkets and a choice of places to eat and drink. Alternatively, take your shopping list to the regular market in Clitheroe where there are stalls every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Stop by the Bowland Food Hall and grab the fixings for a picnic to enjoy in the grounds of Clitheroe Castle. Whalley is also a favourite place to shop, and a good choice if you prefer a fancy wine bar over the local pub. Take some time to admire the parish church, which dates back to 628CE, as well as the ruins of the Cistercian abbey that bore the brunt of Henry VIII's fallout with the Catholic Church.

The beauty of the Ribble Valley draws thousands of visitors here every year - some of whom love it so much that they make it their permanent home. One of the best ways to enjoy the landscape is on foot, and there is a fantastic network of footpaths leading from and through Ribchester village. Favourite routes lead beside the River Ribble as well as to places like Beacon Fell, Brockholes Nature Reserve, Hurst Green and Longridge Fell. The Forest of Bowland National Landscape is virtually on the doorstep with more footpaths and some excellent mountain bike trails, while those who prefer a different type of saddle can arrange a guided trek with a local riding school. Golf and fishing are two other popular ways to spend time outdoors. 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.

Dinkley Cottage is part of an exclusive portfolio of high-quality properties managed by Ribble Valley Holiday Homes. They can be booked individually or together to accommodate bigger groups of friends and extended families. Please see the owner's website for more information.
