We would be delighted to welcome you for a stay in the Chicken Shed, our luxury boutique self catering on the side of Pendle Hill.

We constructed this industrial-chic converted barn on the ruins of an old farm outbuilding and used the original stones as well as beams and structural parts that had been laying about at Knowle Top for many decades.

This generous hide-away is the perfect romantic couple’s getaway or a single guest’s retreat.

Please know that the facility is non-smoking, and that currently, we don’t allow dogs. We are surrounded by farm pasture and prefer not to upset livestock that would come nose-to-nose with a dog. The concept of the Chicken Shed is to immerse our guests in nature, and at times the winds blow down Pendle hard. We think it part of the charm, and made sure the Chicken Shed enjoys perfect insulation so our guests are always cosy and warm.

For any 4 night stay, a 15% discount is automatically deducted from your total and from any 2-3 night stay a 10% discount is automatically deducted from your total.

If you book 4 nights or more we include a complimentary apéro hamper with a bottle of Prosecco
