A magnificent, detached stone farmhouse in Bashall Eaves, four miles from Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley, with three bedrooms and a sofa bed accommodating up to seven people.

The Old Forge is a wonderful stone farmhouse situated in its own lawned gardens, surrounded by glorious views of luscious open fields, four miles from Clitheroe. Inside are three bedrooms and four bathrooms comprising of two en-suites, a wet room on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first floor. The bedrooms include a spacious master room with a super king-size bed, comfy sitting area and en-suite shower and bath.

There is also a flexible room with zip/link beds that can be a king-size double or two singles with en-suite, along with a single room and a double sofa bed in the study downstairs. The kitchen is large and bright with two dining tables, each seating six. The sitting room has an open fire and large bookcases, as well as a door to the study.

There is off road parking for three cars and a good gastro pub just up the road. The Old Forge is an excellent base for walking and relaxing with friends and family.


Wedding stay
We booked the old forge for my husband to be along with his mum to stay in the night before our wedding and the Saturday night following (3 nights total) when myself, my mum and maid of honour joined them. Oh my goodness, what a treat! Absolutely beautiful, from the massive kitchen, to the plush beds, the cosy lounge with log burner to the abundance of history surrounding us, it was not only an escape but unexpected delight and pleasure. Huge thank you to Fiona and Elaine for a wonderful trip, we cannot wait to return. P.S. the surprise goodies were a massive hit thank you xx

The best UK rental property ever stayed in
The Old Forge is a superb property - we have never stayed in such a welcoming, comfortable, amazing house - the history you can browse through is incredible. We felt extremely privileged to spend time there and will be visiting again, and again, and again!

Great Place to stay
Wonderful welcome and lovely cottage one of the nicest places I?ve stayed in. Loved the area and enjoyed walking in every direction. Lots to see and do locally with a nice pub very close by. Elaine who looks after the cottage was very kind and very helpful. Me and my two friends who met at college in the 1970's had a lovely catchup and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Simply superb- a privilege to stay there!
This is such a welcoming house in a lovely unspoilt location. It has every amenity anyone could want, and really unusual to find so much of the family history to add to the general interest. There is walking from the door, and a huge choice without having to drive too far- allowing us to explore an area previously unknown to us. We have never before experienced such generous welcome baskets and flowers, and our thanks to Elaine for the spotlessly clean accommodation. Very highly recommended!

Beautiful traditional house refurbished to an extremely high standard
We stayed for a long weekend in this stunning cottage, extremely comfortable and with plenty to offer in the local neighbourhood. We went for walks, had some delicious meals in local pubs and enjoyed the beautiful landscape. The house has been recently redecorated throughout I can not recommend it highly enough for a relaxing break.
