Holly Toft is a lovingly converted, detached stone cottage, perched on the edge of a drumlin hill, overlooking the beautiful rolling countryside of the Ribble Valley. With uninterrupted panoramic views of the Forest of Bowland, the majestic hills of Whernside, Pen-y-ghent and Ingleborough, it truly is a special place. Whilst mature lime trees stand guard in front of the property, Weets Hill looms spectacularly nearby. Relax in front of the woodburning stove whilst drinking in the views.
Holly Toft has a large, lofty, light filled living room with breathtaking views of Weets Hill and the Trough of Bowland, comfy leather sofas and a contemporary woodburning stove. An HD TV with Freesat and WiFi access, enables you to keep in touch with the world. The TV is for watching TV and not for reconfiguring for games though. Move seamlessly through the doorway into the large open plan kitchen/ dining area which is spacious and well equipped with a cooker, hob, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. Turn right through the door into the bedroom where you'll find a large comfortable bed with soft feathery pillows, then explore the stylish shower room beyond.
Walks from the doorstep stretch in every direction. A roman road beckons from across the meadows, the summit of Weets Hill is a tantalising afternoon stroll. Explore the Leeds to Liverpool canal offering walks in either direction, enjoy helping the narrowboats navigate the lock system of Barnoldswick, the highest point on the longest canal in Britain.
Good eateries abound and for a cafe lunch walk up the ginnel from Bridge 153 into the Esse cafe and enjoy beautifully prepared food.
Pop into town and enjoy our gastro pub, The Fountain, Barlick Tap which is a friendly micro brewery and Chewies, a great gin bar. For a lively music scene and great food especially breakfast, you can’t beat the Music and Arts Centre where Pete Barton (the Animals 60’s group “The house of the rising sun” fame) has his mates round for cracking evenings jamming in the basement bar. The Greyhound also has good guest beers and lively bands at the weekends. Check them out online and schedule your itinerary !
