Merrybent Hill Luxury Bed & Breakfast

#RedefiningLancashire.  We are restricting the number of rooms we let out, so that we only have one set of guests (2 people) in the house at one time.  A family group of 4 people can be let a second room in the house.  We have established risk assessments, cleaning protocols and procedures which we send to guests for information and reassurance upon booking.  #RedefiningLancashire


Merrybent Hill is a stunning luxury B&B situated in an rural location in the Forest of Bowland, with outstanding views towards Pendle Hill and the Yorkshire Dales. A Grade II listed linear farmhouse thought to date from the late 17th or early 18th century, the house has immense character with stone mullioned windows, huge oak beams and log burning stoves.

Perfectly situated half way between Lands End and John O'Groats and for visiting the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and the Lake District National Park. Merrybent Hill is located near to the quaint village of Slaidburn and is only half an hour's drive from the Yorkshire 3 Peaks of Ingleborough, Penyghent and Whernside, and a mere 45 minutes drive from Kendal, gateway to the Lake District.

The accommodation offers a stunning characterful bedroom with super-king bed, a seating area, and a luxurious contemporary bathroom with large bath and separate rain shower. They also have a double room with private bathroom.  Daily housekeeping is included and the owners are on site 24 hours a day for any assistance guests may require.

For cyclists there is secure lockable bike storage available together with washing and drying facilities, free of charge.

At breakfast time enjoy a fantastic selection of fresh fruit, cereals, danish pastries, yoghurts and juices, followed by a hot breakfast with lots of choices, whilst sitting in front of the log burning stove and enjoying the amazing view to the south.

Road Directions

By Road:  From the South there are good motorway links using the M6 Junction 31 Preston or Junction 31a Longridge, or by sing the M65. From the North use Junction 33 Lancaster. From the East the best access is to turn off the A65 at Long Preston and follow the B6478 into Slaidburn, then follow the directions below.   The house is situated 3 miles North of the small village of Slaidburn.

Directions from Slaidburn: From Slaidburn turn North at the War Memorial in the centre of the village taking the road signposted for Bentham.  Continue on his road for 2 miles passing the signpost for Stocks Reservoir on your right.  Ignore satnav instructions as satnav tends to deliver you to the wrong place!!  Continue on the same road for approx another 1.5 miles, climbing steadily all the while.  At the top of the hill and about 50 yards before a cattle grid you will see the house sign on your right by a wall at the entrance to the track to thehouse.  Turn in here. 

If you are coming from the North, take the Slaidburn road from the centre of Bentham and follow this road for about 9 miles up and over the moorland, dropping down to a stone bridge.  Climb up the other side after the bridge and pass the entrance to two farms, one on the right and one on the left, then climb a short steep stretch of road and at the top you will see the house sign on your left.  Turn in here.  The gate may be closed as they need to keep sheep out of the garden but just please open it and go down the track to the house. If they know what time you are likely to arrive they will try and make sure the gate is open for you! (especially if it's raining!)

Public Transport Directions

By Train: There are hourly train services from Manchester and Blackburn to Clitheroe from where a local bus will get you to Slaidburn.  We can always pick you up in Slaidburn if you are without transport.

By Bus: There are regular bus services into the village by Bowland Transit.  Please do call if you need to be picked up.

By Air:  There are international airports at Manchester and Liverpool.
