It also has some chairs where you can sit and watch the changing colours of Pendle Hill. Relax and absorb the tranquillity as you look out across Sabden Valley towards Pendle Hill. On cooler days, you can light up the wood burner in the sitting room for a cosy focus. It all adds up to a beautiful get-away-from-it-all setting - yet still within five miles of main and motorway road networks. There is plenty to do and see in the Forest of Bowland, Ribble Valley and further afield. Walk out of the door and set off on one of the many public footpaths that crisscross the Valley (a Pendle Hill walk is a must-do); link up with one of the cycle or mountain bike routes not far away; visit the nearby market town of Clitheroe with its ancient castle and £3m visitor centre. There's a good swimming pool too. Tour the pretty and historic villages of the Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland. Whalley Abbey, Whalley itself, Hurst Green and Stonyhurst with its Tolkein Trail are definites for a visit. For a full day out, Skipton, Lancaster, Manchester, Blackpool and the Fylde Coast, the Yorkshire Dales, the Peak District and Haworth Country are all in easy reach. Sabden village is a mile away by road, but nearer by footpaths. It has three churches, two pubs, three shops and the long-established Pendle Antique Centre which is well worth a visit. Pendle Ski club is nearby, as are several golf courses, fishing lakes and riding stables. The list 'where to eat' places in the Forest of Bowland is amazing - just check out the national award winning Ribble Valley Food Trail for 'starters'. Cobden View is at Cobden Farm, accessed by a farm road off Whalley Road, opposite Lamb Row, Sabden. Cobden View, which has wi-fi throughout, is spacious with laminate flooring throughout the living areas. It is all on one level, centrally heated by oil, and has: - A fully equipped and fitted dining kitchen, including dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave oven, electric hob and oven. - An adjoining utility room has a freezer and washing machine, plus some chairs where you can sit and look across to the steeper heights of Pendle Hill. - The sitting room has comfy leather sofas, a wood burning stove, TV, DVD player, Wii and selection of games and magazines. - The modern four-piece bathroom (bath, corner shower, basin and WC) has underfloor heating to keep you cosy. - Wake up in the main bedroom that has a kingsize bed, fitted wardrobes as well as bedside tables, a chest of drawers . - Or wake up in the twin-bed room with bedside table and fitted, mirrored wardrobes. - Both bedrooms are south facing and look out onto the secluded rear garden as well as the farm fields. - Cot and highchair available. - A comfy fold-up bed can go in the master bedroom or sitting room. There is an additional fee for this, based on the time of year. Bedding and towels included. - Well behaved dogs welcome. For more than one dog, there is an extra charge per pet per week. - Car essential. - Steps up to the main side entrance door. More

Interaction with guestsWhen you arrive, the cottage is open and ready for you. The key will be in the back of the main entrance door at the side. We live in the farmhouse a bit further down the hill from Cobden View. If you need any help, advice or information, just come down and knock on the door. There's usually someone in. Missy, our little Jack Russell dog who loves to meet people and who's grown up with children so loves them too, will probably bark a welcome when you knock or ring the bell.

I had a fantastic stay at Cobden View. The cottage is in a beautiful, scenic location with views of the rolling hillsides and woodland from every window. It was spotlessly clean, very well appointed, and the welcoming hosts have thought of everything you might need for a relaxing stay. Highly recommended.

Well, what a welcome. Wonderful home made scones with jam, fresh farm eggs and the most amazing doggie welcome pack we've ever seen! The cottage was immaculate and every need was catered for, a real holiday find! We enjoyed a lovely friendly welcome each day from genuine people on a busy working farm. The surroundings and views were so relaxing and tranquil with lots to do and explore locally. Lots of nice places to eat and drink nearby all with a warm welcome. We would certainly enjoy this hospitality again. Thank you so much to Maggie and family.

What a find! A remarkably spacious, fully equipped cottage in an idyllic position on high ground above the farmhouse with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside. Maggie could not have been more helpful and was the hostess with the mostest! It really was a week to remember.

We absolutely love it when our visitors enjoy their stay at Cobden View - and beautiful Sabden valley in the glorious Forest of Bowland (we aren't a bit biased, of course!). So we're delighted that your first-time holiday in this lovely part of England went well. Thank you for taking time to write a review. Best wishes to you both, from Maggie and John.

This is our fourth stay at Cobden View cottage and it certainly won’t be our last – we’ve already booked again for next year. Maggie, John and Missy are perfect hosts and are always on hand should you need anything. You are greeted with home baked scones, jam and freshly laid farm eggs. The cottage is a real home from home with everything you need (and more). The views are spectacular and we love the fact that you are staying on a working farm. We have noted that some reviewers have mentioned the approach road to the cottage. We have a normal hatchback car and have never had any difficulties in driving the short approach road. Just drive a little slower and take in the beautiful scenery as you go being mindful of any inquisitive sheep (it is a working farm remember). The cottage is ideally situated in the beautiful village of Sabden. If walking is your thing then there are lots of walks direct from the cottage – there is a folder in the living room of the cottage with lots of route maps and walking books for you to read and borrow. Outside the back of the cottage is a lovely decking area with table, chairs and bbq, the perfect place to relax on sunny evenings with a stunning view of Pendle Hill. You can even see Pendle Hill from both the fantastically equipped kitchen and living room – who needs a tv with that for a view? Clitheroe, Dunsop Bridge, Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales are all within easy reach should you wish to venture a little further. The cottage is also dog friendly which is a great bonus. Our Jack Russell absolutely loves staying here – this year, as we drove up to approach road to the cottage, she started to cry with excitement. We cannot recommend Cobden View Cottage enough. We absolutely love this place – shame we have to share it. Kazz, Janette and Star

Grass not cut dog poo litter the back barbcue had dirty nappies on it. Fire exit blocked. very low hot water pressure which probably causes the shower to not work correctly.

My family of four from Canada had a wonderful stay at Cobden view in July. It was a perfect base for our travels around the North to visit family and friends; well appointed, quiet, clean & comfortable. I would recommend to anyone. Maggie was a fantastic host, the fresh eggs and scones on arrival were a nice touch, and she went out of her way to make sure we found our way for a late arrival on our first night. A perfect location for those who prefer to get away from it all, and only a 15 minute walk into the village.

Arriving at 2am in a van full of furniture is possibly not the best way to find the Cottage, but the instructions are spot on. And after hours of packing (moving house) and a six hour drive,the cottage was warm and cosy and Maggie's homemade scones very welcome. When I drew the curtains later in the morning our Border Collie couldn't believe his luck, Sheep and Chickens out of every window, and lovely views towards Pendle Hill for the Humans. This little cottage truly is a home from home with every thing you could need, including dog bed,old towels for mucky paws,the tastiest freshest eggs ever. Toys and books for all ages and a dvds. There are some basic ingredients in the kitchen cupboards that seem to work on a Use some/leave some basis. The Cottage is in a working Farm, so don't be surprised at the noises. If you are not familiar with the area, you are surrounded by beautiful scenery, and there is lots to explore,

We're so pleased that Cobden View 'ticked all the boxes' for you Paul, Henni (and, of course, Senna the Border Collie). We absolutely agree with you about the beautiful Sabden Valley and Forest of Bowland - but then we are biased. Thank you for making time to write a review.

Cobden View is a modern, updated country cottage located high on the hillside of a working farm in sunny Sabden, Lancashire! It has two sizable bedrooms, a modern bathroom and kitchen, plus a living room and separate laundry/mud room. It is stocked with everything you need to make it your home-away-from-home! The cottage was wonderfully clean, with beautiful gardens in both the front and back (back one has a nice patio too). The owner, Margaret, starts you off with some lovely homemade scones and fresh farm eggs, plus tons of info and maps for hiking and sight-seeing in the local area. The location is fantastic. Embedded on a hillside, it is very private, the only neighbours being the residents of the other farm buildings and various animals in the surrounding fields. Fair warning though: access is via a bumpy farm road, and you might have to shoo a few sheep out of the way. I highly recommend Cobden View, my family of 4 was very comfortable there and we can't wait to go back!

About the neighborhood
The Forest of Bowland and Ribble Valley, which overlap in parts, have dozens of lovely villages and places all worth seeing, walking or driving to. Cobden View looks out to Pendle Hill, famous as the home of Lancashire Witches and you can see the everchanging colours of the Hill that stands proud and alone between the fells of the Trough of Bowland and the Pennine foothills to the east. Just set off walking on one of the footpaths on the farm and see for yourselves.Buses stop at the bottom of our farm road that leads up to Cobden View at Cobden Farm. Buses link up at Whalley, Burnley or the Clitheroe Interchange which serves also the train station. Just a few of the places to visit are: Ribchester with its Roman museum, where you can walk along the River Ribble, cafes and popular play are...
