The Space

Are you looking for a traditional English cottage holiday set in one of the north of England's prettiest villages? 'Blackbird Cottage', which has been awarded a three-star rating by Visit England, is located in the award-winning village of Waddington, in Lancashire's beautiful Ribble Valley, nestling at the foot of Waddington Fell and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by some of England's most gorgeous scenery.

Providing comfortable, centrally-heated accommodation for up to 4 people and decorated with landscape paintings by local artists, the cottage comprises a living room with colour television and DVD player; a fully equipped kitchen/diner, including microwave and conventional ovens, refrigerator, washing machine and dining table seating four; a large double bedroom; a smaller bedroom with two bunk beds; and a house bathroom with bath and in-bath shower.

The cottage is located in the centre of the village, opposite the brook and Coronation Gardens, within easy walking distance of a café, post office/grocery store and three cosy pubs serving food and drink. Popular with tourists, the village bustles at weekends and holidays with walkers and cyclists setting off for excursions in the surrounding fells and moorland.

As well as excellent fell walking and cycling in the nearby Trough of Bowland and on Pendle Hill, which dominates the skyline to the south, the area offers many opportunities for gourmet dining, including nearby Bashall Barn, the famous Inn at Whitewell and Northcote Manor. Waddington has been described as "a village so pretty it could have been built for some rose-tinted Richard Curtis movie"!

The Yorkshire Dales (with attractions such as Malham Cove, Pen y Ghent, Ingleborough, Skipton, "Calendar Girls" country) are just 20 minutes' drive away, and the southern Lake District is just over an hour away. Trains from the bustling market town of Clitheroe (2 miles away), take just over an hour to reach Manchester Victoria. Brontë country and the Lancashire Coast (Blackpool, Morecambe) are within easy reach, as is the city of Liverpool, with its Beatles connections and the new and acclaimed Museum of Liverpool.

We offer considerable discounts on the per-night price quoted above if you stay for a week or longer. Please drop us a line!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Blackbird Cottage. Waddington is a very picturesque village in a beautiful part of Lancashire. The cottage has everything you would need for a comfortable stay and is only a few doors away from a great cafe with lovely home cooking! We are glad to have found such a gem.

  • A lovely house in a beautiful part of the country. Also really handy that behind the house is a huge parking area and its free so no hassle with getting vehicles parked. Blackbird cottage is cosy, clean and very nice to stay in. Communication with hosts was easy and they are very helpful.

  • We were very impressed with the cottage. It provided us with the perfect base for visiting the Lakes District, Blackpool, Liverpool, the Yorkshire Dales and the Ribble Valley. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and was situated in a very pretty location being Waddington. We loved our stay. Thank-you.

  • We had a very nice Christmas at Blackbird Cottage, which is pretty and cosy with a very well equipped kitchen, much appreciated for Xmas meals. The surrounding area is extremely pretty, and there are some great pubs in the village. Thanks for welcome bottle of wine and fresh milk in fridge on arrival.

  • Ein absolut gut geeignetes Haus in einer wunderschönen Umgebung. Obwohl es direkt an der Strasse liegt, gibt es dort wenig Verkehr. Das Haus ist gut eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts und man merkt, dass der Eigentümer das Haushin und wieder selber nutzt.
    Viele Möglichkeiten sportlicher und naturgebundener Betätigung in der Umgebung, nur muss dabei das Wetter mitspielen.
    Absolut empfehlenswert für Naturfans.

We are a family with two small boys, splitting our time between the UK and Luxembourg. We love Waddington and the Ribble Valley so much that we even got married there (in St Helen's church opposite the cottage) and we're sure you'll love it too! We speak English as a family, but feel free to contact us in French or German too if you'd rather. Looking forward to hearing from you/Wir freuen uns auf Ihren Email/Nous attendons le plaisir de recevoir votre message!
