About Ian and Sue Sherrington
We are Ian and Sue and have been lucky enough to welcome holidaymakers to The Ribble Valley from all over the world. Whether you prefer your privacy or to be shown the local sights of Lancashire, we look forward to making you feel very welcome. As neighbours you will hear very little from us. There are no pets in the grounds, so local walkers and the occasional grandchild of ours are likely the only other people you might come across throughout your stay.
Why Ian and Sue Sherrington chose Blackburn
The Ribble Valley and surrounding areas have been ranked one of the safest and nicest places to live in the UK. We moved here many years ago and have been in love with it ever since. Our location couldn't be better suited to explore the North of England. The coast is close, The Lake District and Yorkshire Dales sit on our doorstep and we can be in London or Glasgow in a little over two hours, all benefits our guests continue to enjoy.

Great place to stay
We spent a lovely long weekend in the cottage. The cottage had everything that we needed and the hosts were super helpful and friendly. They were more than happy to provide a travel cot, high chair and even baby toys for our 12 month old. The cottage was finished to a high standard and was very clean. We'd definitely stay here again. Thank you.
Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hopefully see you again.

My wife and I stayed here with friends recently.
What a fabulous cottage. Absolutely spotless and superbly equipped.
Both bedrooms en suite.
The cottage was a little bit further out than we had anticipated but having seen the cooking facilities we ate outside on the patio every night . The glorious weather helped.
Gardens beautiful. Excellent parking area.
Ian and Sue were perfect hosts making sure everything was OK and giving advice on trips.
Would not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone.
Fantastic, Modern, Luxurious property in beautiful secluded surroundings
Very well appointed property, they thought of everything you might need. Very modern, comfortable, quite luxurious and very clean. Friendly, helpful hosts in a very secure setting in stunning secluded country location.
We were so comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at a very reasonable price for this quality of accommodation.
Our house was the smaller of two, perfect for four comfortably sharing the spacious living area. Next door is ideal for six and ultra modern.
Our hosts were extremely helpful and thoughtful and even brought age appropriate extras for the kids once they realised how old and what gender they were. So kind!
Thanks for having us, we would heartily recommend your place and hope to stay again.
Thank you so much for your lovely review it was a pleasure meeting you and your lovely family. Hope to see you again sometime.

Clean, tidy and in a brilliant setting
Had a lovely experience here for my 21st birthday weekend away. Had a lovely warm welcome when I arrived and felt at home straight away. Amazing cottage which was very clean and tidy. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything you would need! The beds were very comfy and we couldn't hear a single sound from next door! Overall an amazing cottage with lovely owners. Definitely would recommend and would book again!
Thank you for your lovely review we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us.

Oakdean Cottages are the perfect place from which to enjoy special interest holidays. Much of our Ribble Valley location lies within The Forest of Bowland, an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
If you fish, we are perfectly located for the River Loud, River Hodder and River Ribble. Wildlife and Bird watching are also particularly popular with the Trough of Bowland, heather clad moors and wooded valleys all on our doorstep. Martin Mere, the WWF wetland in Burscough is also less than an hour away. Walking, cycling and mountain biking are popular pursuits with our guests, as is horse riding as we are close to the famous North Lancashire Bridleway that runs from Chipping to the edge of the Lake District. Other attractions popular with guests include: Alton Towers, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, East Lancashire Railway, The J.R.R Tolkien Trail and the East Lancashire Railway.
All can be organised and enjoyed throughout your stay and should you need transport anywhere, we would be more than happy to arrange it for you.
