If you are looking for a luxurious, stylish and stunningly presented property then look no further! Root Farm Cottage is a scenic, rural escape. Set in the heart of the Forest of Bowland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this detached beautifully presented holiday cottage has been lovingly converted with great attention to quality of fabrics and internal finishes, all co-ordinated by an interior designer to create a wonderfully ambient atmosphere. The property has two beautiful bedrooms, both well-equipped with charming en-suite facilities offering ideal accommodation and privacy for two couples holidaying together. The living room has a cosy wood-burning stove, creating a warm, relaxing and inviting area to rest tired feet after a day exploring. Two pets are also accepted at the property, and with plenty of walks available direct from the door, it is the perfect excuse to bring along your four legged friend. Sit out, relax and enjoy the beautiful lawned garden, providing an idyllic place to simply reflect on the surroundings. The owners have paid so much attention to detail to ensure you have everything you need for a peaceful and tranquil retreat. There’s no need to worry about amenities when you arrive as the owners provide the perfect welcome pack. On request and at cost, a meal cooked in the Puddleducks Tea Room can be ordered to eat in Puddleducks or to collect and take to your accommodation.

Root Farm Cottage forms part of the stunning Whitewell Estate, which is owned by Her Majesty the Queen in her capacity as the Duchy of Lancaster. The Queen last visited the estate in 2006 and it is known to be one of her favourite parts of the Duchy’s rural estates, so why not come and see why she loves this picturesque area so much. The cottage lies within walking distance of Dunsop Bridge, which is regarded to be the geographic centre of the United Kingdom. An ideal location with walks direct from the door. There are quiet lanes for cyclists and challenging off-road terrain for the more adventurous or for those who love to admire the wildlife, a wide selection of birds can be observed.

    Very well appointed and excellently managed property with nice touches such as a generous welcome pack and really useful guidance from Alison who went the extra mile to make our stay all we hoped it would be. Straight 10s on all fronts with a single mark down from perfection on location as you need to accept you are in the middle of working farm country with some utilitarian barns in the near view and all else that goes with keeping the grass fertile for the sheep.

    Alison, the housekeeper, and the cottage were both lovely. The house was immaculate, well equipped and very warm and comfortable. The new born lambs outside the window were gorgeous. The area has exccellent footpaths and Alison pointed us in the direction of walks appropriate for the weather (unfortunately, it was very wet). Alison also went above and beyond in heping us when our car wouldn't start. I would recommend Root Farm Cottage for a lovely holiday, it is a gem!

    What can I say, but once again Alison and Tom have looked after us. It like going to our second home. This is our second time and we have already booked for 2018. All I can say is once you have stayed at Root farm cottage, you will go back every year. If you are reading this review, don’t delay and book up straight away. Thanks Alison and Tom

    We absolutely loved Root Farm Cottage. We stayed towards the end of October 2017 with our two boys aged 9 and 6. It's quite a drive to get to the cottage from Preston (country lanes), but once you get to Dunsop Bridge it really is a lovely place. Puddleducks tea room (less than 5 minutes walk) does amazing home made lunches and there's also a post office (open on certain days) that's handy, especially for cash! There's a real variety of things to do in the area, from walks, to the Wild Boar Park! The cottage itself is beautiful - so homely. There's a utility area with a separate washing machine and dryer which is really handy. We cooked in the kitchen every evening and found it to be well-appointed. The beds are comfy and the cottage was spotlessly clean. Alison was on hand for any questions and was extremely welcoming to our family. We will definitely look to stay here again - I just hope not too many people realise how great the cottage is! :-)
