We stayed 3 nights and could have easily stayed more as there is heaps to do in the area. Apart from Manchester and Liverpool there are castles, country homes, gardens and natural beauty spots to visit. On top of that the B&B is wonderful. Large room with nice ensuite overlooking the garden. John and Barbara were lovely hosts and the...

We agree with the other reviews so no point repeating. We enjoyed our 2 night stay and particularly appreciated the welcome our dog Lizzie received - especially from the lovely Nell. Many thanks Barbara and John - we hope to see you again. PS. Also agree about The Spinners - good food and a well kept pint.

Barbara and John are incredibly lovely hosts with a wonderful B&B. I had an amazing nights sleep; very comfortable bed, very quiet location - just the ticket after a 3/ & half hour drive. Cannot recommend The Ridges highly enough; I hope to stay again in the future.

We stayed with Barbara and John whilst visiting relatives near Accrington and it was such a good choice for what was an emotional time. We were welcomed from the moment of the first phone call when we were offered all we wished for. Barbara went out of her way to make life easy for us and for that alone we...

The Ridges proved to be a 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. My single...

Stayed here with my wife and 2 young children. Both rooms were very comfortable and quiet, and the rate was good. Breakfast was excellent, and the hosts are extremely friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We only stayed one night, arriving late and departing early but were made to feel very welcome. The Ridges sits amidst a glorious (and well-known) garden, regrettably inclement weather prevented further exploration. The spacious rooms were individually and comfortably decorated. Would certainly recommend and hope to re-visit in the summer to properly explore the gardens.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
BRITAIN'S FINEST - GARDEN DESCRIPTION WORDING The Ridges, a Georgian house, was built in the late 1700' s by local landowners the Standish-Langtree family and has had only a handful of owners since then. In the mid 1800's it was the home of a local mill owner and in 1880 was bought by John Haslem Gillett a wealthy cotton mill owner, with many mills around Lancashire. The walled garden was planted with fruit trees and much of the six acres of land was developed into landscaped gardens and lawns, including many different species of rhododendrons, with woodlands on three sides making the gardens very sheltered. Since 1994 the old walled kitchen garden and orchard, with trees still bearing fruit today, has been replanted with wide perennial borders, a herb garden, a natural looking stream with moisture loving plants and spectacular, highly scented rambling roses and clematis scrambling through the apple trees. A natural living arch leads from the orchard garden through a sturdy metal gate into the more formal area where a large, rectangular lawn has now been surrounded by new beds, planted with shrubs and brightly foliaged trees to contrast with the older and larger rhododendrons, hollies and copper beech. The centre of this lawn is now a mock pond with moisture loving plants and grasses surrounding a large stone urn overlooked by a Victorian style glass house. Undergrowth of the glades and woodland has been cleared to make way for ferns and shade loving plants and each year new features are created or areas that have been neglected are cleared and restored to provide interest for visitors. ... more   less
