“Wonderful, Relaxing Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed in Delph Cottage in August 2012 for 7 nights. We had a great time, the cottage was all that was advertised and more. The cottage is very spacious, all the rooms were well furnished and clean. It was an ideal base to see surrounding countryside such as the Lake District, Blackpool and Manchester. Also, the surroundings was peaceful and restful and if you like reading, then there was some excellent novels to choose from. Clare the owner was very accomodating and welcoming. We would like to thank her and her staff the wonderful and pleasant time we had and would recommend this cottage to others as a great place to stay.

“Excellent, we keep coming back. There's nothing we would change!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We are a family of 7 and found this to be a fantastic property. The decor is a high standard, and the furniture is good quality. We loved the feeling of space in the property, as the living areas both downstairs and upstairs are wide and open. there was plenty of room for 5 kids to play without getting under each others feet, and plenty of space for the extra 11 family members who came to visit for the day. All the essential things were very good- kitchen well stocked with plenty of space; great showers; comfortable beds; plenty of towels and linen; and all in a lovely setting.
The cottage opens on to the herd house yard, and there is plenty of space for parking. The Tesco delivery man also found a space for his lorry! The owners are very friendly, and the children loved being able to go into the stables to see the horses and ponies; they made friends with the dogs, and were able to visit and play with the new puppies which really made their holiday! The Pendleton valley is a beautiful location, and for our city-bred children it was a chance to spend all day safely outdoors.
We have stayed in these cottages twice, and have booked again for October, it's the only place we have ever returned to!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

After living in a busy city, this cottage and it's location was perfect. My husband and I and our three children stayed at Delph Cottage in July 2012 for 2 weeks. The accommodation is very comfortable with all mod cons. The owner, Cath, was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for her. The kids had a great time learning to horse ride too. Would definitely love to return and spend more time there.

“Could Have been Better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

We had issues with this accommodation as there were things originally advertised that were not available, like sofa bed and things that did not work ~DVD, Wi-fi, TV (lounge) and the parking by side of property (wood dumped there) - this list is not exhaustive and I hope the owners have now amended information and notified guests who have already booked. There is building work taking place and the courtyard had dogs tied up who barked consistently. The property has a really good layout, giving ample room for your own space, but is a little bit neglected in respect of kitchen cleanliness and general maintenance - it did not meet up to what our family would consider a **** Property. The riding school seems very busy with cars coming and going directly in front of the property from early morning, so there is a lack of privacy in this property. The other properties would probably not have this issue as they do not open directly onto the courtyard.The owners have been informed of our concerns and if they action these areas, which will not take long, the property will be a lovely place to stay for future guests.
