Beautiful cottage, lovely quiet area
We loved everything about the cottage, the owners were very nice , the farm was great as we saw the sheep being sheared ,Ollie the horse and the cows ,it was all fantastic.

Fantastic cottage
Great cottage, really well equipped and comfortable, lovely setting within easy drive to lots of attractions. The week went far too quickly!

We were looking for a quiet location with beautiful views, a fire and much needed time away together to relax, we got that and so much more. We couldn't highly recommend Stone Mouse Cottage enough, we will definitely be coming back.

Three years on and still as wonderful
We realised after booking our latest break at the Stone Mouse Cottage, that we'd visited on the same week every time for 3 years! The cottage looks just as beautiful as it did three - and four - years ago. The welcome was just as warm - and the scones just as delicious! This time we had our 2.5 year old daughter in tow. I was a little worried it would be too quiet for her after getting used to Center Parcs, but she was certain this was the 'prettiest holiday house ever' (although she did ask where the pool was!!). It turns out all toddlers need is a window seat to stare at passing sheep, the farm tractor, and the resident Collie's. The marble game provided was also a hit (heavily supervised!) and meant she didn't even ask to watch Peppa once (I'm sure anyone with toddlers will realise what a relief this was). All days out require a drive but there's plenty of child-friendly activities/restaurants within 30-45 minutes, even though it rained all weekend. Particular rainy day recommendations are: Paint Pot, Clitheroe; Shackleton's Garden Centre; and the Bolton Abbey railway. Thanks again Janet and Danny for another wonderful, relaxing stay :)

Cottage with the 'wow' factor
Stone Mouse Cottage is a beautifully furnished, well equipped, spacious, spotlessly clean property and we loved it. It isn't easy to find adjectives which have not been used already to describe the cottage - so I will be boring and say it is just as 'special' as other reviewers have said. Nothing can be faulted - the beds are so comfortable, the bedding is luxurious, the towels are white and fluffy and the selection of toiletries is a very nice touch. The lounge has large settees, a fabulous stone fireplace and a great kitchen/dining area with everything you could need. The large sliding glass doors opening onto a pretty decked and garden area make the most of the lovely views. The owners are so helpful and go that extra mile to ensure that everything is just right to give the guests a perfect holiday experience. A welcome pack of home-made scones (with cream and jam) and a bottle of wine were extremely well received and the fresh flowers were lovely. Would we go back again - you bet! We just loved the location, remote, quiet and beautiful.
