From the moment we arrived, we were made really welcome - homemade cake, jams, bread, and even a bottle of wine were left for us in the cottage. The inside was tastefully decorated, with all those lovely crafty things that you'd like to buy, if only they'd go with the decor of your own home. The patio area was a delight to sit in, surrounded by colourful floral displays, and the larger garden area was well maintained. The cottage is minutes walk from Wycoller village, where there's a lovely tea shop. There are also walks along the riverside. A short drive through beautiful countryside takes you to Colne, where there is a supermarket and several places to eat. There are also a number of good pubs within a few minutes' drive. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a great place to stay, which could easily be overlooked through not being in the major tourist areas. Do take a look!
