This was our first visit to Ribchester and Riverside barn. We stayed for 3 days booked through a Living Social / Groupon voucher. We chose the cottage with the four poster bed and roll top bath - something a bit special to celebrate my wife's birthday. Although the cottage was comfortable it was a little cramped.

Fantastic b&b! Beautiful suites and the location is gorgeous. Great scenery and pubs within walking distance! Would recommend to any one traveling to England. The staff is so kind and rooms come with tea and coffee, as well as a warning oven. Very romantic as well, great for couples.

“Lovely views from the Ribble Suite and it has a large shower. The other room has a roll top bath/shower I believe.”
  • The other leather settee to watch the flat screen TV or look out of the patio windows.
  • A large, very light bathroom due to velux roof window. Wetroom shower area.
  • One relaxation area. Leather settee and the dining table.
