Wood End Farm
Ranked #14 of 23 Clitheroe B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 23, 2012

My husband and I have just got back from a weekend of cycling in the Forest of Bowland. We stayed at Wood End Farm which is situated on the right hand side after the bend, just as you come into Dunsop Bridge from the Newton-In-Bowland direction.

I couldn’t have asked for a better location or venue for an overnight stay. Our room was a double, ensuite, which overlooked the small garden and road at the front of the house. The house is a traditional farm house with lots of features you would expect from a building of this type – wooden ceiling beams, quaint little windows, a beautiful dressing table and mirror. There was a fab little window cushioned seat in our room that meant you could sit with a book and a cup of tea and listen to the birds and the trickling water feature in the garden below. Please note that this runs continuously so if you are a light sleeper you may want to either close the windows at night (not practical in summer) or take earplugs.

There is also a stair lift up to the bedrooms for those who may be less mobile.

We ordered porridge the night before ready for breakfast in the morning and I have to say it was some of the best I had ever tasted. Doreen cooked it slowly in the Aga overnight and so it was creamy and soft, a bit like rice pudding – amazing.

Breakfast started with half a grapefruit, followed by toast and homemade lemon curd and marmalade. Then the porridge. Then came the full cooked breakfast – perfect for a day tackling the fells of the Trough of Bowland.

There was plenty of parking and Doreen let us lock our bikes and bike rack in one of the farm buildings to keep is secure during the night.

We walked the 2.5 miles up the road to the Parkers Arms in Newton-In-Bowland for our evening meal on the Saturday and then walked it off afterwards. A torch is a must if you do this as there is no street lighting and a few cars, although not many. There are a couple of other well-known eateries in the area but all require a car to get there from Wood End Farm – not sure what it would be like for taxis out there as it is a bit out of the way.

We didn’t go into Dunsop Bridge village, which is just around the corner from Wood End farm but we did drive through on the way to Chipping on the Sunday and it looked delightful. Not much in the way of shops so bring with you anything you consider to be essential.

Doreen was a lovely hostess, chatty and happy to share her knowledge of the area. I don’t think this will be the last time we stay at Wood End Farm – loved every minute of it.

If you are looking for a perfect place to say in this beautiful part of the country look no further than Wood End Farm at Dunsop Bridge www.visitwoodendfarm.co.uk. Doreen gives great and friendly service and she sets a high standard in all that she offers in her lovely farmhouse accommodation. The guest rooms are immaculate, very cosy with nice decor and the dining room is a lovely room to enjoy a superb traditional breakfast of the highest quality ingredients. Wood End Farm is ideally situated to explore the Trough of Bowland, Pendle and the surrounding Ribble Valley area. The Hark to Bounty pub at Slaidburn is only a short drive away and offers an excellent and good value Sunday lunch and other homemade food and high quality real ales. The Parkers Arms pub/restaurant in Newton-in-Bowland also offers high quality food at reasonable prices and high quality local beers. As well as Dunsop Bridge village, there are many picturesque villages in this area to visit such as Waddington, Whalley, Downham, Bolton-in-Bowland, Chipping and lots of nice walks. I also went to the fascinating Queen Street Mill Cotton Museum in Burnley which is ideal for a rainy day (or a fine weather day). I cant wait to come back to this area again for another short break and stay at Wood End Farm.

Room Tip: Stay at Wood End Farm!

My husband and I had an overnight at Wood End Farm whilst attending a wedding at a local pub/hotel. Doreen was an excellent hostess and she couldn't have done more for us. We were late back from the wedding in the evening and that wasn't a problem. The room had all the usual things and was immaculate. Doreen even gives fresh milk for the refreshment tray in the room - so much better than 'fake' milk. There was a great choice for breakfast and there was no set time, which was ideal given our late night the night before! I would highly recommend a stay here.

This has to be the most unique little B&B in the UK. Doreen is the perfect host and with home made bread and marmalade, fresh laid eggs for breakfast you are in for a treat. The twin and double rooms have traditional decor and beams and lots of character. Ensuite and tea/coffee making facilities. Car parking. But my no means least the breathtaking Ribble Valley on your doorstep. Highly recommended.
