Just what you need after a day’s walking the West Penine Moors - traditional B&B, comfy rooms and a warm welcome from John and Barbara

Read guest comments

John and Barbara look after you in a lovely old mill-owner’s house built in the 1700s. Traditional bedrooms have pale colours, flowery fabrics, patterned walls and wrought-iron beds; breakfast is in a cosy room overlooking the garden, with a log-burner for chilly mornings. Both garden and welcome will delight you. The story of the garden starts in the 1970s when Barbara used to help her mother with their garden centre. The more she learned, the more her interest grew: by the time her children had grown and flown she was hooked and began restoring and developing. The old apple trees lining the path were pruned, but not much else is recognisable now; instead, dense cottage garden planting demonstrates Barbara’s eye for combinations of colour, form and foliage. This shelter protects tender plants and is a lovely setting for a Victorian-style glass house used for entertaining. In a natural looking stream garden damp-loving plants such as rodgersia and gunnera grow down towards a pool, while a ‘Paul’s Himalayan Musk’ runs rampant over trellis and trees. Let Barbara take you on a tour: the history is fascinating.

  • Close to the West Penine Moors with 4 large reservoirs , known as 'The Lancashire Lake District' and very popular with walkers.
  • Astley Hall and Park are nearby. A beautifully mainrained Elizabethan house where Oliver Cromwell stayed.
  • Hoghton Tower and gardens is just a short drive away. This wonderfully preserved castle has been inhabited by the De Hoghton family since Norman times and is where King James 1 famously knighted the loin of beef.
  • At The Ridges we have lots of books of long and short circular walks in the beautiful countryside which surrounds our home.

"Our second visit - another warm welcome - relaxed atmosphere - vey pleasant surroundings - super breakfast - comfortable beds (we were in the twin room) - and lovely dog Nell. Oh - and a very good & reasonable dinner at the nearby Black Horse, Limbrick"

"We spent three nights in this lovely B&B and John and Barabara could not have been more helpful. They always went the extra mile to make sure we would find somewhere for a good meal, had everything we needed in our comfortable room and even moved a bed from a different one to accommodate my very tall husband! Despite the fact that their wonderful garden was open to the public that week they still made time to give us advice on where to go and marked up a map for us to take away in case we wanted to come back and walk another time. A great find in a beautiful county."

"Just returned from wonderful 3 nights at The Ridges. We were made so welcome and the accommodation is excellent.,of course the gardens are a crowning glory! To walk there before a hearty breakfast is a perfect start to the day."

"The Ridges proved to be the perfect sanctuary after a long journey on the blisteringly hot and slow moving M5/M6. I arrived to a friendly welcome and was allowed to wander through the calm, sun filled, acres of magnificent gardens which were filled with, not only a riot of plants but accompanied by classical music and competing birdsong – I thought I had found paradise! "

"My single room was very clean and comfortable and I was offered the exclusive use of the family bathroom next door which had a large bathtub and shower. I enjoyed a blissful night’s sleep. The breakfast was generous and tasty and I left refreshed and ready to face another long journey followed by a three day conference at a large city centre hotel, (which by comparison was so impersonal and noisy!). The Ridges experience was delightful and I highly recommend the establishment to all. In fact, all visitors to Britain should be shown directly there as it so quintessentially English. "

"We stayed overnight on our way to Cumbria. Kindly Barbara and John couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. The garden is lovely and the breakfast was perfect, home made jams simply delicious! Comfortable bed too - just right!"
