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,
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!
We stayed at Cobden View in late May 2017 for a week. The bungalow was extremely well equipped, very clean and comfortable and with lovely views of the surrounding countryside. On arrival there was fresh milk, tea, coffee, some delicious scones and fresh eggs, all very welcome. There was a large amount of information on places to visit and walks around the area, some of which could be done from the doorstep.
We would definitely recommend Cobden View and wouldn’t hesitate to visit again if in the area.
We received great directions for a smooth arrival, and greeted by home-made scones and other thoughtful touches. The cottage was really well equipped for all our needs (a family of four), and everything was in superb condition. We knew Maggie (the owner) was on hand should we run into any snags, but we had absolutely no problems, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We'll happily go back next time we're in the area. Highly recommended.
We stayed here for a weekend whilst visiting relatives in the area. The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable. We just wished we were staying for longer so we had time to explore all the walks we could have done straight from the door!
