Very clean and tidy house in a quiet location. Owner gave very detailed directions to property and on arrival heating was on and fresh eggs and wine on kitchen table. Definitely stay in this house again.

Management response:

Thanks for your review and glad you enjoyed your stay. We always try to provide our homemade wine for guests to try - supply of eggs is dependent on our chickens and tends to go down significantly in the winter months!

Comfortable, well-equipped barn with scenic views. Pet and Child friendly. We used as a base to visit Bolton Octagon theatre and to explore the surrounding area. The Dog Inn in Belthorn village is a wonderful friendly place for the whole family inc. dogs! Food superb. We had an all-round nice time.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed your stay - and also our local, Community-owned Pub - The Dog Inn!
