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 Ribble Valey

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.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The owners have paid a lot of attention to detail in the cottage, well equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, hairdryers and bathrobes, lovely showers. Everything very clean and well looked after, things felt new. Very easy to be comfortable. Great location. Owners were very helpful and accommodating even receiving our supermarket delivery when we were running a little late.

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Felt like we were away abroad on a luxury holiday. The location and style of cottage is superb. Attention to detail in contents of kitchen, appliances and bathroom toiletries was the best we've ever experienced in a self catering property. A truly relaxing week in beautiful surroundings.

Very Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Hodder Cottage, which, as a family of 4, including 2 infants, gave us plenty of space for a week-long stay. Ian and Sue were great hosts, providing a brilliant array of infant-related equipment for our use, which took a huge load off our minds before arriving. The cottage itself was beautifully clean, quiet, secure and safe, and in a great location for local walks and as a base to venture further afield. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and utensils enabling us to enjoy a number of home-cooked meals during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would highly recommend the cottages for anyone looking to visit Lancashire and it's surroundings.

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.
