Travellers' Choice
Merrybent Hill is a stunning luxury B&B situated in a rural location in the Forest of Bowland, with outstanding views towards Pendle Hill and the Yorkshire Dales. A Grade II listed linear farmhouse thought to date from the late 17th or early 18th century, the house has immense character with stone mullioned windows, huge oak beams and log burning stoves. The views from Merrybent Hill to Pendle and across the Ribble Valley are amazing.

Just spent four nights at Merrybent Luxury B&B. This is an exceptional place, more like being in a cottage with your own butler & maid than a B&B! We were made to feel very welcome, the food was amazing and the cottage equipped to a very high standard. The peace and tranquillity was just what we wanted. Can't wait to return next year. (Tip: don't miss out on Bob's roast chicken dinner)

We had an amazing 2 night stay at this beautiful luxury B & B last weekend, Helen & Bob made us feel so welcome and they catered to all our needs magnificently - we were thoroughly spoiled. The views, food, house, bed were all amazing and their COVID19 safety procedures were excellent and made us feel very safe.

This was my second visit to Merrybent Hill and I was praising it so much to my boyfriend that I was starting to worry that I was overselling it to him. When we arrived however, I remembered just how amazing it is! It exceeded all my memories and exceeded my boyfriend’s expectations. Helen and Bob are the most attentive and kind hosts you will meet. You will never want for anything during your stay. My 21st is next week and they even had a birthday card waiting for me with some flowers in our room! The room is gorgeous: authentic wooden beams, exposed stone fireplace, ginormous comfy bed and a modern bathroom. Incredible views of the landscape with not another building in sight. Aside from the amazing decor, it’s the little things that really make a place. The room comes with amazing complimentary toiletries, not just minis - full size shampoo, shower gel and conditioner, as well as bubble bath, body lotion, cotton pads/buds and even lavender sleep spray. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits are also waiting in the room with a kettle and cafetière, with another stocked fridge downstairs. The food is incredible too. Chicken dinner was second to none and the breakfast is definitely one of the best I’ve ever had. A beautiful spread of yoghurt, fruit, muesli, homemade compote and juices to start, then your choice of a full English, pancakes or smoked salmon and egg, as well as a tray of pastries! Bob and Helen do breakfast WELL. Bob will whip you up a walking map for the surrounding area and Helen will bring you scones for when you’re relaxing by the log burner in the afternoon. My boyfriend and I couldn’t stop saying how blissful we feel at Merrybent, so I recommend it to everyone! Everyone must experience Merrybent. Thank you Helen and Bob!

Could be the best B&B I’ve ever had the pleasure to stay in!! Fantastic location. Comfort and facilities better than you could wish for.....so relaxing, but it’s the hosts, Helen and Bob who really make Merrybent so special - they go over and above the call of duty in making your stay the best. Their knowledge (and willingness to share it) of the local area along with its fantastic walks is immense. Their food is off the amazing. The warmth and friendliness they show and genuine want for you to have the most comfortable relaxing stay is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before.
