We phoned and booked six weeks in advance of our one night stay, supplying our card details. However, it appears that when they processed it it failed to go through so the next day the owner phoned and asked for the card details again. We paid with a different card. When we arrived for our stay we were presented with...

We booked this hotel through Late rooms as part of my husband's birthday celebrations but were really disappointed with our stay. It definitely wasn't the tranquil, relaxing break the owners suggested we would experience. On arrival the water was not hot enough for a bath & we reported this straightaway to be told it would be fixed shortly. We couldn't...

We stayed for a Saturday night in June with our young daughter. The owner asked us to leave a review as he delivered breakfast, so here it is. Lovely location, and in some respects the attention to detail in the room is fab (box of DVDs, wine glasses, ironing board etc). Breakfast was great, delivered at our requested time at...

I booked this as a birthday treat for my husband, as we had not had any time to ourselves away from the kids in over 12 months!!! We arrived earlier than expected and was told our room was ready so we could check straight in, and the young man who showed us to our room even offered to get our...

We nearly cancelled this holiday after reading a couple of the reviews, but thankfully we took note of the positive reviews. All I can say is there must be no pleasing some people. We arrived early and was greeted by the owners who invited us into their study to sort out the paperwork. We didn't mind paying on arrival as...

Recently I traveled to the United Kingdom for a business trip and was placed at the Riverside Barn by my company. I can say right off the bat that this is not your typical business destination when traveling, it is definitely geared towards more of a couples pleasure endeavor. While I would definitely recommend this establishment to any couples looking...

Recently stayed in the Ribble Suite situed with a lovely view of the river. Beautiful room, with walk in shower and plenty of room to sit and relax. This was helped by all the mod cons including Sky Sports/Movies. The room was lovely and warm with underfloor heating, towel rail and radiators, (if anything a bit too warm!). The Breakfast...

This was a last minute booking for a business meeting in the area,I normally stay in boring hotels in town centers. On arrival at 8pm after a 200 mile journey I arrived at the lovely village of Rribchester and found the B&B at small farm near the river . A complimentry drink was offered at reception and advice on nearby...

We wanted somewhere comfortable to spend the weekend while we attended our friends' wedding. Riverside Barn came up in several searches, and the website was thorough and descriptive. There are only two suites at this family-run site, both have splendid large four-poster beds and modern amenities. Arrival: Our room had a very spacious en-suite bathroom with a two person bath...

“We stayed I. The rubble suite the larger of the two, and in my mind the one with a better view.”

“Lovely views from the Ribble Suite and it has a large shower. The other room has a roll top bath/shower I believe.”
  • The other leather settee to watch the flat screen TV or look out of the patio windows.
  • A large, very light bathroom due to velux roof window. Wetroom shower area.
  • One relaxation area. Leather settee and the dining table.
  • The lovely four poster bed and the en-suite bathroom and lounge area beyond.
