Welcome to our Hollin Bank Barn website in 2020 - We can offer Bed and Breakfast in our Barn or Self Catering Accommodation in the attached Cottage. We hope that the website provides all the information you are looking for and that we will soon be able to welcome you into the Barn or Cottage as our guests.
We hope that our website will inform you about Hollin Bank Barn Bed & Breakfast and Self Catering Cottage and provide you with a taste of Salterforth, a most beautiful area of England close to the Lancashire / Yorkshire Border to which we, hopefully, may encourage you to visit at some time in the near future. We are a small, private, Bed and Breakfast with an attached self catering Cottage offering high quality accommodation in a spectacular setting, ideal for anyone wanting to stay near to the Ribble Valley, Yorkshire Dales or Pendle areas. The B&B accommodation we offer comprises a large family room, en suite, and a double room with separate private bathroom. The Cottage has 3 bedrooms, one Kingsize Double room, one Twin Bedded room and one single bedded room.
About the Barn;
The Barn is around 165 years old and was built to store hay to be used for animal feed during the winter, whilst the animals were kept in the Shippon (the back section of the building) over the colder months of the year. The recent conversion from agricultural building into habitable accommodation has retained a few nice original touches, the old ironwork, door hinge pins and snecks in the walls, and the original roof trusses have all been kept and these make lovely exposed features in the bedrooms and landing.
It looks a little different now to how it was in 1941, the earliest date for which we have a photograph;
Although the main barn door opening is still exactly the same, the door to the right has now been shortened into a window to match the raised internal floor, and the large rectangular stone over that door/window can be easily recognised in both pictures.
By the way, we are told that the horse was called Blossom!
The Cottage accommodation comprises a Large Lounge and fully equipped Dining Kitchen on the Ground floor with the bedrooms and Bathroom on the first floor. Gas central heating and a gas fire in a feature stone fireplace ensure that your stay will be warm and cosy. Private car parking and an enclosed garden add to that feeling of home from home. Please note that the Cottage is available via www.cottages.com who handle all bookings
