About Duddle Cottage

Duddle Cottage has everything families and friends need for a wonderfully memorable holiday in the Ribble Valley. The eco-friendly stone cottage has a timeless style with modern touches that include underfloor heating and an outdoor hot tub. There is plenty of space for up to ten people to sleep in five lovely bedrooms, while the location only half a mile from Ribchester means that a park, village shops, cafes and friendly pubs like the Ribchester Arms are conveniently within walking distance. You and your guests can also treat yourselves to some a treatment when visiting Hidden Oaks spa which is available on site.

Ribchester is a charming village with a thriving community that can trace its roots back to the Bronze Age. The remains of the Roman fort of Bremetennacum are still beneath the village church, and there is a volunteer-run Roman Museum with more information about life when the fort was constructed almost two thousand years ago. Ribchester has shops, pubs and a monthly farmers' market. A short drive from the cottage, Longridge has three supermarkets and a choice of other places to eat, drink and shop.

The beauty of the Ribble Valley will have you eagerly greeting every day with the promise of a new and spectacular view. Walking is the fastest way to immerse yourself in your surroundings and footpaths lead from the village to local beauty spots that include Saddle Fell, Fair Snape Fell, Beacon Fell and along the rivers Ribble and Brock. Cyclists will also love the scope of road routes and mountain bike trails, including the excellent network of off-road trails in the nearby Forest of Bowland National Landscape. Golfers are spoiled with a good choice of golf clubs within only a few miles of Duddle Cottage, and the stretch of the River Ribble between Ribchester and Redbank is an angler's dream with dace, grayling, chub and trout all regular trophies.

Places to visit during your stay include Stonyhurst College, the Brockholes Nature Reserve, Bowland Wild Boar Park, and Mrs Dawson's Open Farm. Clitheroe is about a 20-minute drive from the cottage, with a thrice-weekly market (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) as well as a castle and a train station with a regular service to Manchester. You may also want to visit Whalley's abbey and its church, the oldest part of which dates back to 628CE. 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.

Duddle Cottage is one of an exclusive portfolio of self-catering holiday cottages in the Ribble Valley managed by Ribble Valley Holiday Homes. It can be booked on its own or together with other cottages to accommodate bigger groups of friends and extended families. Please see the owner's website for information.

Accommodation Comprises:

As with all of the properties managed by Ribble Valley Holiday Homes, Duddle Cottage is finished to a high standard with underfloor heating and WiFi throughout. The owners are keen to protect and preserve the beauty of the Ribble Valley and have earned a coveted Gold standard Green Tourism Award from Visit Britain.


  • A cloakroom by the front door makes it simple for guests to put shoes and coats away neatly out of sight. Doors lead from the hallway to the downstairs bedroom, utility room, living area and kitchen, with a staircase leading to the bedrooms on the first floor.
  • Enormous open plan living space at the rear of the cottage, featuring a comfortable seating area, a dining table and a kitchen. Big sofas ensure there is seating for everyone, while a wood burner adds to the warmth of the welcome guests receive.
  • Solid wood dining table in a sunroom with doors that open onto the terrace and garden. There is plenty of space for everyone to enjoy relaxed and formal meals together.
  • Glossy cabinets, high-quality appliances and lots of space to store and prepare meals make the kitchen perfect for self-catering for a full house. The island worktop has chairs so it can double as a casual dining area, or somewhere to sit with a glass of wine and keep the cook company. The room has plenty of natural light thanks to the multi-aspect windows, so it is always a light and welcoming room in which to work and socialise.
  • Utility room with laundry facilities.
  • Separate WC with a handbasin.
  • Bedroom with zip linked bed allowing for twin or superking combination, built-in storage and an ensuite wet room with a shower, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: There is as much space to relax and socialise outdoors as there is inside.
