Sleeping up to nine people, this superb detached property is on the Bolton Estate on the outskirts of the small village of Bolton-by-Bowland. Fox Ghyll is a superb detached property full of character yet packed with modern amenities, on the edge of Bolton-by-Bowland, a little village in the Ribble Valley. There are four bedrooms, including three doubles (one with a super king-size sleighbed), two with en-suites. There are two family bathrooms, one on the ground floor. The kitchen has a large central island and dining area and there is a separate dining room. A sitting room and a snug both have a woodburner. Outside are lawned gardens with a... patio, off road parking for 5 cars, and a short walk takes you to a play area. Fox Ghyll makes a wonderful luxury base for a year round break, either for a special occasion or simply to treat yourself!

Wonderful accommodation in a superb location. The property is very well appointed. It helps if you know how to use an AGA cooker. Owners very helpful, friendly. We were a party of 7 adults, so cannot comment from a child's perspective. Great scenery, secluded but near to village, very peaceful, good walking, fantastic local pubs for when you don't want to mess with the AGA. Would definitely recommend this property for people who want to experience delightful Bowland.

This house is the house I want to live in forever! Beautiful grounds, amazingly peaceful location which was a short walk to a lovely pub, great sociable kitchen, really comfy family room & the visits from local cats made it perfect. I have a v bad back & sadly none of the beds were firm enough for me (hence the average bed score - the sheets were lovely though!) - but the rest of the family slept very well. We did have a spectacular shower leak but that was dealt with very quickly.
