My girlfriend and I were looking for a property in the countryside so that we could have a weekend reunion with two other couples one of which has a five year old son. The criteria was obviously the ability to house us all, good country walks for the day time and a local hostelry that can feed and water us whilst providing entertainment for young Sam. Foxley Bank Stables provided all of this and more. It is a beautiful residence furnished to a very high standard set in gorgeous countryside. The owners Steve and Sarah met us on arrival with a very warm welcome, Steve briefly showed us around the property with a quick explanation as to how to operate the sauna. The first night we decided upon a pub super, I asked Steve for a taxi number so that some of us may have a drink, Steve told us not to bother with that he would run as down to the pub and give us a number for a lift back (how’s that for service).The pub had a large play area to the rear, the food was top end pub grub and the local Bitter was stunning all bases covered. The next day we had a long walk around the rolling hills and valleys of the Ribble Valley the scenery is breath taking. That night we set a large log fire roaring and enjoyed a lovely meal in the property, the kitchen facility contains all and more than is required for a dinner party. A wonderful night was had by all of us.
I can recommend this property; the facilities, location and hospitality are second to none. We are planning a return visit. Thanks Steve and Sarah.
