Debs, Lee and Max are amazing hosts at this luxury corner of the beautiful forest of Bowland. Personally I visited for a work trip and stayed in the cottages for a prolonged period - it was only going to be a few weeks but it turned to months as I loved it so much! The location and cottages are set up for all types of event, be it a wedding, hen weekend (I'll be back for this!) weekend away, family staycation, adventure, retreat.
As for the property, Lee the owner built them himself and the finish is immaculate. (I've told him I want him to build me a house in the future). The Granary has modern, well equipped living areas, really comfy beds, amazing bathrooms, and is beautifully decorated. Its everything you could want for all occasions.
Yesterday, 17th March 2018, I visited this beautiful place. I am a hair and makeup artist by profession and I was booked to work on the bridal party who were staying at The Granary. I feel compelled to write a review about it! This most wonderful luxurious ‘cottage’ is the best of its type I have ever seen. After the bridal party left for the church, I stayed to pack away all my equipment and had a look around the whole place. No expense has been spared on the fittings and the decor, and the attention to detail is impeccable. There is even a utility room with a washing machine, a washbasin and a loo! Every single thing is catered for. It’s in a perfect location for walking in the glorious countryside around about too and Waddington village is just a short walk away. I honestly can’t imagine anything more perfect than these cottages if a country location is your desire. I highly recommend! 5*****

The cottage is beautiful and lacks nothing. There are bathrobes, top-end toiletries and everything in the kitchen you could need. There's also a grill for BBQ's and a patio to relax on. The owner brings in groceries for breakfast if needed. The place is incredibly clean which is important for a rental property. The village of Waddington is close by and has nice pubs. It's a short ride to Clitheroe which has a Norman castle and lots of shopping.
Be it a wedding, weekend away, family staycation, adventure, retreat or (in my case) a work trip, The Granary is the perfect home. Welcoming spacial living area, homely bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms - you have it all.
As for the hostess and family? Travel for the cottage, stay for the people, miss you Debs!
P.s I recommend The Waddy for a pint, The Higher Buck for food and a walk up pendle hill to work it all off - have a great trip.
This house was an absolute life-saver on a long project away from home. It has an incredibly well outfitted kitchen, a gorgeous open plan living area, and the most comfortable bedrooms (with exquisite sheets). The real find are the hosts though - Debs and Lee are gems. They gave us great recommendations in town, and made sure we were always comfortable. We were so lucky to know them over the six months we stayed!
I stayed in The Granary for several months while working in the area, and could not have asked for more. The house is amazing, both comfortable & spacious, while Debs is an outstanding host who always makes sure guests have everything they need. Highly recommended!
We stayed at the Cottage for 3 nights 4 days in Feb, it was the perfect stay. Deborah and Lee have thought of everything that you could possibly need.
The cottage was spotless and beautiful. All the little touches that have had so much time and thought spent on them make the difference.
The location is also beautiful, lovely country side walks all around.
Thank you to Deborah and Lee for really looking after us while we were there. Brilliant recommendations.
We would love to come back in the summer, and stay again.
Couldn’t recommend this cottage enough!! If you haven’t booked already, BOOK NOW!!!!
