Alden Cottage

Alden Cottage is an idyllic 17th Century holiday cottage, offering award-winning Self-Catering accommodation. The cottage is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty 1 mile north of Stonyhurst College, near Hurst Green and 4 miles south west of Clitheroe in Lancashire's beautiful Ribble Valley & Forest of Bowland.

Sleeps 2 persons (1 Double en-suite bedroom).

Perfect Base for Touring
Alden Cottage accommodation is the perfect base for touring and discovering the wonderful villages and scenery of the Ribble Valley and Forest of Bowland (see location page for more information). It is an ideal spot for a walking or cycling holiday, for using as a base to visit many of the north-west’s attractions or for enjoying a gourmet break sampling some of Lancashire's finest eating establishments. Alternatively, it can simply be a great place to relax and unwind in picturesque surroundings.

Beautiful Area
Kemple End is situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking the Ribble and Hodder Valleys and nestles in a dip in the bilberry clad hillside which was once part of the Stonyhurst estate. The area is steeped in history and feels a world away from the noise and traffic, yet is less than 4 miles from the bustling market town of Clitheroe and within easy reach of the A59. The M6 motorway and the towns of Preston, Blackburn and Skipton (the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park) are all less than half an hour's drive away and the Lake District National Park, Blackpool and Fylde coast are within easy reach for a day out by car.
