What to do
Either spend your time relaxing in your accommodation or step out of the gates and experience what the local area has to offer.
games room for the kids (or big kids)
Our Games Room offers a haven at the end of an activity filled day. It is a space to play darts, pool or table tennis. There are also numerous board games and a great DVD library that all guests are given access to.
CHILL OUT ON THE ISLAND
Follow the steps down to "The Island", with its babbling brook and weeping willows around the border, it is the perfect retreat at the end of the day. Spend those summer days with friends and family around the BBQ or huddle round the stone fire pit for night time campfires.
Expect to rack up plently of miles on Strava! Our site at Rossendale Holiday Cottages is surrounded by brilliant road and mountain biking routes. Lee Quarry is a must for any keen mountain bikers, with various routes for people of different levels.
We highly recommend the Panoptican Tour, a route planned by our friend David, a NSIQ Cycling tutor, and a British Cycling Ride Leader. Take a tour of Haslingden Halo, The Atom and The Singing Ringing Tree, or even Colourfields in Blackburn, if you can manage that far!
