About Ian and Sue Sherrington
We are Ian and Sue and have been lucky enough to welcome holidaymakers to The Ribble Valley from all over the world. Whether you prefer your privacy or to be shown the local sights of Lancashire, we look forward to making you feel very welcome. As neighbours you will hear very little from us. There are no pets in the grounds, so local walkers and the occasional grandchild of ours are likely the only other people you might come across throughout your stay.
Why Ian and Sue Sherrington chose Billington and Langho
The Ribble Valley and surrounding areas have been ranked one of the safest and nicest places to live in the UK. We moved here many years ago and have been in love with it ever since. Our location couldn't be better suited to explore the North of England. The coast is close, The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales sit on our doorstep and we can be in London or Glasgow in a little over two hours, all benefits our guests continue to enjoy.

Fantastic, Modern, Luxurious property in beautiful secluded surroundings
Very well appointed property, they thought of everything you might need. Very modern, comfortable, quite luxurious and very clean. Friendly, helpful hosts in a very secure setting in stunning secluded country location.
We were so comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at a very reasonable price for this quality of accommodation.
Our house was the smaller of two, perfect for four comfortably sharing the spacious living area. Next door is ideal for six and ultra modern.
Our hosts were extremely helpful and thoughtful and even brought age appropriate extras for the kids once they realised how old and what gender they were. So kind!
Thanks for having us, we would heartily recommend your place and hope to stay again.
Thank you so much for your lovely review it was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely family. Hope to see you again sometime.

Clean, tidy and in a brilliant setting
Had a lovely experience here for my 21st birthday weekend away. Had a lovely warm welcome when I arrived and felt at home straight away. Amazing cottage which was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you would need! The beds were very comfy and we couldn't hear a single sound from next door! Overall an amazing cottage with lovely owners. Definitely would recommend and would book again!
Thank you for your lovely review we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Gorgeous property peace and quiet
First impressions didn't disappoint. The property was extremely well equipped, clean and cosy. Just what we needed for relaxing when we got back from being out on the bikes. Ian and Sue were very friendly and helpful. Having the groceries delivered by Tesco was so convenient and we would definitely do this again when we visit next time.
We have stayed at the properties 3 or 4 times now. The properties are lovely, and can not be faulted, and we have always been made to feel very welcome by the owners. The setting with views over the Forest of Bowland and Pendle Hill is very special.
The properties would suit most situations, we are a young family (two children under four) and they are ideal for us, but would also suit Couples or Friends. We intend to return to stay later in the year.
Our Favorite Find........
We love this cottage for so many reasons, we have rented both the Hodder and Ribble Cottage. We have very hire regards for the owners and their exceptional way to welcome guests and take are of all needs. No matter the request - both Sue and Ian are absolutely lovely and accommodating. All of the 5 stars reviews are accurate - they look after every detail. Don't doubt renting these cottages - you will not be disappointed.
Oakdean Cottages are the perfect place from which to enjoy special interest holidays. Much of our Ribble Valley location lies within The Forest of Bowland, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
If you fish, we are perfectly located for the River Loud, River Hodder and River Ribble. Wildlife and Bird watching are also particularly popular with the Trough of Bowland, heather clad moors and wooded valleys all on our doorstep. Martin Mere, the WWF wetland in Burscough is also less than an hour away. Walking, cycling and mountain biking are popular pursuits with our guests, as is horse riding as we are close to the famous North Lancashire Bridleway that runs from Chipping to the edge of the Lake District. Other attractions popular with guests include: Alton Towers, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, East Lancashire Railway, The J.R.R Tolkien Trail and the East Lancashire Railway.
All can be organised and enjoyed throughout your stay and should you need transport anywhere, we would be more than happy to arrange it for you.
