What a lovely two days. The double room with four poster bed was delightful and beautifully decorated and very clean. Attention to detail was unbelievable. Everything was done to a high standard and we had a very warm welcome. Afternoon tea was amazing. The breakfast hamper was very special. Highly recommended in every way.

Can't fault anything on our stay here. From the get go was an absolutely fantastic experience. Arrived with lovely cake and sandwiches, clean room and gorgeous bed! Unfortunately I didn't get chance to try the cake as it was gone once the cleaner had done our room the following morning. But refilled our breakfast and fridge. Sky movies was a...

Booked this as a deal and after reading reviews booked the rubble suite, upon arriving we had a wonderful greeting and tour with advice on the room & the breakfasts. The room was fantastic, wonderfully presented with clear attention to detail to bring the finishing touches. The breakfast we were served was perfect & having a hamper makes it perfect...

We stayed at the Riverside Barn and the breakfast was lovely The rm does not have a lot of space to store your clothes and although the Victorian style bath is nice the shower head attachment is hopeless And very little hot water when required. Kyle was pleasant and offered info on places to eat and go. The lock on...

Hope to go for a romantic stay. Went with a "bezzie mate" so the romantic room (with huge roll-top bath) was wasted on us, but so comfy. Ribchester delightful. Food provided was great. Alongside a working farm, so farmy aromas, but parking and local setting very beautiful, peaceful and charming. The food provided was lovely and superbly presented in a...

My fiancé and I visited this establishment on 13th/14th October for 2 nights for what was supposed to be a romantic time away. Upon arriving at the Riverside Barn, we was greeted by the male called Kyle who was quick to tell you what you can and cannot do. After explaining that the smoke alarm tends to go off while...

Mixed feelings about this stay. Got off to a bad start with a young man greeting us with a bad attitude. He spent 15min laying down the law of do's and don'ts and giving us incorrect information. Accommodation was certainly not 5* and not clean as we found food on the floor and even a previous occupants clothes. Breakfast was...

So sorry you found your stay disappointing but unfortunately the guest house is positioned directly next to the river and on a working farm yard so flies etc do occur. We do spend a minimum of 3 - 31/2 hours on full cleans per room and 11/2 + on half cleans and always spray the rooms with insect spray when...

“We stayed I. The rubble suite the larger of the two, and in my mind the one with a better view.”

“Lovely views from the Ribble Suite and it has a large shower. The other room has a roll top bath/shower I believe.”
  • The other leather settee to watch the flat screen TV or look out of the patio windows.
  • A large, very light bathroom due to velux roof window. Wetroom shower area.
  • One relaxation area. Leather settee and the dining table.
  • The lovely four poster bed and the en-suite bathroom and lounge area beyond.
