Description


A 4 berth static caravan, set in its own private garden with views of the surrounding fells. Scenic open views of the forest of Bowland and the beautiful Ribble Valley. Surrounded by farmland, cattle and sheep. Or just relax and enjoy our chickens pottering around!

A 15 minute walk (various footpaths) takes you to the lovely Roman village of Ribchester. A Roman Bath House ruins, museum and history await, with a variety of pubs and cafes. Stydd gardens is an interesting, eclectic mix of rose gardens, individual shops and cafes/wine shed.

The Ribble valley is well known for a diverse selection of eating establishments and historic buildings. The historic Cromwell's bridge, Stony Hurst College, Tolkien country and trail, villages and rolling fells and farmland make for an enjoyable visit to this undiscovered, quiet part of Lancashire. 30 minutes to coast, and an hour to the Lake District .



A wide variety of wildlife can be observed from the caravan, including curlews, peewits, barn owls, grouse, woodpeckers, and the occasional deer. Numerous foot paths lead directly from the site, offering walks to suit differing abilities. Bus stop end of lane. Free range eggs available, The market town of Longridge is 3 miles away with a variety of shops and local supplies. The market town of Clitheroe is approximately 6 miles away, with its castle keep and Holmes Mill which is well worth a visit.

We spent 5 nights at the Retreat for our daughter's 1st Birthday. A great warm welcome, very friendly, some gifted eggs from the Hens which roam around outside, great for our daughter to view. Also speaking of the view, it's amazing, you'd have to experience it! Clean and tidy caravan with plenty of space for the 3 of us, I think the images don't do it enough justice. I would highly recommend the retreat and we'll be returning as soon as we get the chance to go back up north.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We really appreciate your time to review your holiday at the Retreat, and hope to see you soon, regards Mark, Linda and Eleanor.

Fabulous location, very peaceful with gorgeous views with the added attraction of the hens, we especially loved the little one! Caravan very clean and well equiped.

We stayed one night whilst visiting friends in the area. Received the friendliest welcome from both Linda and Mark. The caravan was very clean with everything in it that we needed. Beds very comfortable. Located in a fantastic spot with beautiful views. Wish we could've stayed longer, can highly recommend.

We booked 4 nights here not knowing what to expect but hoping the reviews were right, and honestly the reviews don’t do it justice! Lovely caravan in beautiful surroundings and the chickens were an absolute joy! Our girls completely fell in love with them. Linda, Mark & Eleanor could not be more friendly & welcoming…Mark was great for a bit of banter! ???? We loved our stay at The Retreat & will definitely be back. Thanks Linda, Mark & Eleanor for sharing a piece of your beautiful home with us.

Thank you for taking the time to place a review on our static! So glad that you enjoyed your stay here. It was a pleasure to have you and looking forward to seeing you all again, regards Linda, Mark and Eleanor ????

We stayed here as a last minute 'get away' for bank holiday in May. We knew the weather may not be the best however, this would never stop us from having a caravan break anyway. When we arrived we were greeted by Mark and Linda who were very welcoming, friendly and informative of the area, the caravan and their land. They even checked in on us on the second day to ensure all was well and we were warm enough! The views are incredible! We managed to get outside on evening one for a nice gin or two before the rain hit the next day. Looking out from the living room to the gorgeous farm land is a view we won't ever get tired of. The chickens on the grounds are an absolute bonus especially for myself who loves the farm life. One chicken had serious character trying to jump into our car on arrival. The caravan came equipped with lots of great extras such as hand wash, sanitiser, cleaning wipes, binoculars, games, books, fresh flowers on the table and a very much welcome chilled bottle of Prosecco in the fridge and lovely fresh eggs from their loving hens! Something you don't get from bigger caravan hire companies. We are a couple who like to get away in caravans and lodges often and we can honestly say that no other caravan owners/companies have been as pleasant and welcoming. We unfortunately, didn't manage to leave a message in the guest book as we didn't have a pen but we definitely will next time! What a beautiful, idyllic location and caravan, we are already planning our next stay! See you soon Mark & Linda!

Linda. Mark & Eleanor made us feel very welcome in their homestead, the caravan being in a private area overlooking fields and an allotment. It made for a relaxing break away from it all in the beautiful Ribble Valley.

Thank you very much for your lovely review and comments. Look forward to seeing you again, mark, Linda, eleanor and all the animals x

We had a fantastic stay! Mark and Linda couldn't have been more friendly or helpful and the location was perfect. We didn't want to stay on a holiday park so this ticked all the boxes - private, surrounded by countryside, a village just a short walk away and plenty of places to explore by car. I particularly enjoyed waking up in the morning and seeing what Brian the resident Chinese goose was up to and watching the cockerel and chickens strutting their stuff and scratching in the grass. I'd have liked to have smuggled a couple of the chickens home with me - they have truly stolen my heart! Thank you for having us and we hope to see you again.
