Host Info

Host Review Score 9.5

The Waddow Hall Estate was owned by wealthy cotton magnates until it was sold to The Guide Association in 1927. It has been run by them ever since as a training and activity centre. The hall is now open to everyone, on days when it's not being used for training, and provides an ideal and unique place to stay. The original house was built in the sixteenth century, and was extended in the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, and also in the latter quarter of the twentieth century to provide meeting and conference rooms. The bedrooms reflect the styles of all these times in history - some with huge Tudor oak floorboards, some with high Georgian ceilings, and many with Victorian fireplaces still in situ. The first floor rooms were used by the wealthy family members, whilst the top floor with its quirky beams housed the servants and children. Many of the bedrooms, and all the public rooms, have a stunning view across the front lawn, sweeping down to the river, the weir and over to Clitheroe Castle and Pendle Hill in the distance. Waddow Hall doesn't have a unique selling point - the whole place is completely unique, and all profits support the charity in the future.

Waddow Hall is situated a mile outside the bustling market town of Clitheroe, at the heart of the stunning Ribble Valley in rural Lancashire. The town itself has much to offer, from the busy market, artisanal shops and Norman Castle and museum, which boast the smallest Norman keep in Britain. The area is perfect for walkers, as much of the Valley is a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, and provides miles of walks for all abilities, including the famous Tolkein Trail, as JRR Tolkein wrote much of The Lord of the Rings whilst staying locally. The town is noted as a food capital of Britain, with locally made sausages and cheeses being particularly popular. And it is reputed that should HM The Queen be able to retire, it is to this part of her Kingdom that she would head. Praise indeed, so why not come and see for yourself?
