Fantastic place, location and comfort. We stayed with for 2 nights and it was superb. The cottage is luxurious and very comfortable we didn't want to go home. Our dog Bella loved it and especially loved TED the collie (owners dog). Book this and you will not be disappointed. Sarah was so helpful and friendly- coming back soon.
Special interest holidays:
During your stay at Foxley Bank Stables, you will be situated in one of the most beautiful picturesque places in britain. Therefore why not take advantage of these most stunning places:
Nestling under the bulk of pendle hill, this is one of the lovliest villages in lancashire, quiet and unspoiled with a gurgling brook running past the village green and stone-built cottages.
The church tower is a splendid example of 15th century architecture. Successive generations of the Asherton Family have lived at Downham Hall since 1558; the present squire is lord clitheroe of downham.
Walkers have always been drawn to the area, some to walk up to Pendle, others to enjoy the many local walks which can be in any direction from the village – via Pendle road to the moorland and Pendle Hill, towards Twiston, Rimington, Chatburn and Worston. Once on the higher ground outside the village the views of the Ribble Valley and Pendle are stunning.
1. At junction 31, take the A59 exit to Preston/Blackburn/Clitheroe
2. At the roundabout, take the 4th exit onto the A59/Preston New Rd heading to Clitheroe/Blackburn/A677 (go through 1 roundabout)
Slight left at A59/Whalley Rd. Continue to follow A59 (go through 5 roundabouts)
Once in Sawley take a sharp left onto Sawley Rd (past the Spread Eagle pub)
Follow Sawley Rd and continue over the bridge
Turn left after the bridge
Perched on a hillside, commanding extensive views of the picturesque Ribble Valley stands Grindleton . It is situated across the River Ribble from Sawley, a couple of miles outside Clitheroe. This small rural community once relied heavily on weaving and spinning. Set amidst rolling pastures the church of St. Ambrose once served a population of hand-weavers; it retains its neat Georgian tower (1805). Though the rest was re-designed by Paley circa 1897. Christianity has flourished here from the days of Sawley Abbey and one of the 17th century curates founded the 'Grindletonians' - forerunners of the Quakers. Notice the superb engraved window by David Peace and the attractively painted organ pipes. To commemorate the Millennium, the village now has its own heritage trail. The walk takes approx. 1 hour and maps can be obtained from the Buck Inn and the Duke of York pub in the village or Clitheroe Tourist Information Centre.
Over 900 years old, Skipton Castle is one of the most complete and best preserved medieval castles in England and is well worth a visit at any season of the year.
Visitors can explore every corner of this impressive history-rich castle, which withstood a three-year siege during the Civil War. View the Banqueting Hall, the Kitchen, the Bedchamber and Privy. Climb from the depths of the Dungeon to the top storey of the Watch Tower.
Imagine what life was like when Skipton Castle provided protection and security from invaders. Relax in the picnic area or in the new tea room or visit the shop for more information.
Even now more historic finds are being discovered. Recently an ancient well was uncovered, helping to explain how the castle garrison survived the siege of 1643-5.
For those evenings where you just want to relax and not have to worry about cooking your own food then why not venture out to one of the many pubs and restaurants the local area has to offer.
