We would be delighted to welcome you for a stay in the Chicken Shed, our luxury, boutique self catering cottage 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 lying about at Knowle Top for many decades. The cottage is completely separated from our farm house and guests see no neighbours except for sheep and cows, but we are close enough if  assistance is required.

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 dogs aren’t allowed – sorry!  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 warm. We are on a thermostat heater but additionally have a pellet burner for a live flame and that cosy feel.

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
