Mallard Cottage - Bolton-by-Bowland, Nr Clitheroe, Lancashire, England - Sleeps 8

Mallard Cottage

Mallard Cottage sleeps up to eight guests and is a comfortable holiday home offering affordable accommodation in a beautiful area nestling within glorious countryside in the picturesque Ribble Valley. Sitting in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Mallard Cottage is ideal for large groups who enjoy outdoor pursuits with superb walking, cycling (both on and off-road) and horse riding on the doorstep. Whether you bring your bike, horse or just your walking boots you are guaranteed an outdoor adventure with the tracks and trails of Gisburn Forest (superb for mountain bikers), Pendle Hill and Bowland itself to discover.

For those looking to explore the wider area, the Yorkshire Dales National Park with its endless attractions is within easy driving distance. The coastline is also within easy reach with the bright lights of Blackpool, and the tranquil beauty of Morecambe Bay having much appeal for a day by the sea. Or why not head to the Lake District for a day seeing some of Cumbria's finest sights.

Alternatively, stay closer to home and take a trip on the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway - one of the country's most scenic routes, or explore the abundance of picturesque little villages by car or bike. The attractive market town of Skipton is just over fifteen miles and the smaller market town of Settle is twelve. Lancashire's ancient market town of Clitheroe is even closer and just eight miles from the cottage offering an excellent choice of specialist shops including its renowned Sausage Shop with a choice of over seventy five different varieties!
