This was a 5 star cottage in a superb location with great hosts.

This holiday cottage was absolutely excellent. The owners are brilliant and very accommodating. I cannot speak highly enough of this cottage and the owners, everything about it is 5 star worthy. We will definitely be back year after year.

Just got back from a week at Cottam House Cottage and we loved it. The owners have obviously spent time and money thinking about what people will need and want and it shows. The cottage is spacious, tastefully furnished and very well equipped. The beds deserve a special mention as neither of us have slept that well in months. It's not easy to put into words how stunning the views are, particularly from the lounge, we wasted many a happy hour, just watching all the activity going on in the fields in front of us. I have never seen hares before but to have them sitting outside the patio doors made my week. The location of the cottage means that it really doesn't matter which direction you go as there is always something interesting to see. You can spend entire days out or just a few hours, and there are plenty of walks in and around the cottage itself. I would certainly recommend Cottam House Cottage - just book it.

I liked everything about my stay here, it was amazing and the property was beautiful with amazing views. I wouldn't have changed anything, it was perfect. Will definitely be back again! The owners are lovely and the way they have done that place up is like a home away from home. Loved my stay.

The cottage has everything, with lots of space and large rooms. The view of the Lancashire countryside is fantastic and we particularly enjoyed the large barn owl that often hovered right outside the window looking for field mice. The location is perfect.

This was our second holiday at Cottam House Cottage, having previously stayed in April. We enjoyed our stay and are looking to re-book for next year. The cottage is excellent, the beds are so comfortable. The location is stunning, the views are fantastic, we didn't want to leave!

Of all the cottages that we have stayed in over the 10 years we have been using Sykes, this ranks as amongst the best that we have ever had, just a lovely place. The owners were particularly friendly. Well worth it and would recommend it to everyone.

There were fabulous views from the cottage which was clean bright, modern and furnished to a high standard. The beds were very big and comfy. It was well located to explore the Forest of Bowland which was a real gem.

The accommodation was fantastic, the beds were incredibly comfortable and the bathrooms were spotless. I loved the bath and the downstairs wetroom, also the towels were of a very high quality too. The view from the cottage is stunning no matter if it's sunny or pouring with rain, it still takes the breath away!

A wonderful cottage and a home from home. The cottage had a modern feel and was equipped and furnished to an excellent standard. Views from the cottage were fantastic and the location was very tranquil. The owners were very helpful and would definitely recommend this property.

The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. It was very clean with excellent furnishings. We liked it so much we have re-booked already. In a lovely location with beautiful surroundings, very relaxing and peaceful. Oh yes, it had very comfortable beds which is a bonus. Had great local walks and a lovely farm next door which sells freshly laid tasty eggs! The owners were very helpful and friendly. What more can I say! I could go on forever!

The owners were so welcoming and attentive to every detail; even down to teaching us how to set the fire up. The luxury elements in the cottage (for example the music system) were brilliant.

Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. Plenty of space. We recharged the batteries and would love to go back.

It is so unusual to find holiday rental properties with super-king sized beds. Both bedrooms were so comfortable.

Lovely accommodation in a beautiful location with fabulous views across the Ribble Valley. The house has everything you could want in a modern holiday cottage. The owners live in the adjoining property and are very welcoming and helpful.

We could not have asked for more. The cottage was beautiful, beyond my expectations. We explored the surrounding areas and found some lovely places to eat. It was handy for a trip to Manchester for the day, but you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. We spent some wonderfully cosy lazy nights by the log burner, whilst enjoying the fantastic sound system. The owners were very welcoming and we were made to feel we could ask for help or advice at any time. Highly recommend, I hope to return in the future. Xx

I cannot put into words how fantasitic Cottam House Cottage is. We live in Germany but were spending Christmas in Lancashire visiting family. Cottam House was close to family, and so ideal. The promotional pictures really do not do this property justice; on arrival we could not believe how perfect this property was. Locality - Longridge accessible by car, 5 min drive. Sainsbury's and Booths supermarkets. Locals pub, The Corporation Arms within walking distance and offers excellent food. The cottage provides stunning views of the Ribble Valley and is well positioned as a starting point for walking along Longridge Fell. On arrival we were given a warm welcome in the form of chocolates and mince pies! The cottage itself was extremely clean with towels and bed linen provided. The kitchen was well equipped. My husband and 2 teenage daughters felt at home right away. The cottage, which has wifi throughout, has a very modern feel; the bathrooms are stylish and the bedrooms too comfortable. A fabulous holiday home in a picturesque location, highly recommended!

Without a doubt, quality wise, the best holiday 'cottage' I've ever stayed in. It is fitted out like a top quality hotel, there is nothing negative to say. The owners (who live on site) are delightful and very helpful without being intrusive. The location is idyllic with superb views. If you get the opportunity to stay here don't miss it! Lovely walks with superb eating establishments nearby.

Well what can I say, the truth would be a good start a suppose. Cotton House is stunning. The property has been built to the highest standards. The kitchen and living areas are second to none. Well equipped and furnished to a high standard. For example there is a large wood burning stove that keeps you very warm on cold nights and a sonos sound system that you have access to all the music you want though Napster on the IPad that is provided (not to take away lol). The location with views over the countryside and peaceful setting. There are easy access to major routes which makes it so much easier getting he, will travelled two hour to get here and with no stress funding the location. The owners are so nice, loverly people that want to help out where they can. The bedrooms are very spacious and kitted out the a high end. Bathrooms are clean and large,finished to hotel standard. We will be coming back if we can get booked in because everyone has twigged how amazing this place is.

From the views to the finishing touches in this magnificent barn conversion, we have been wowed by everything. The owners have thought of all aspects of luxury living and even provided a jar of delicious homemade jam in the welcome pack. The huge beds are very comfortable with sumptuous duvets and quality bed linen - so nice to find a property with super king size beds. The fully equipped kitchen and utility room made self-catering a breeze when we didn't take up the suggestions of the hosts as to delicious local eateries. We loved every minute of our stay and can't speak highly enough of what the charming owners have achieved here.
