Backfold Cottage is a cosy 18th century Bed & Breakfast in the beautiful Ribble Valley village of Waddington, one and a half miles from Clitheroe.

It is set in a peaceful backwater yet is only a short stroll from three great pubs, all of which serve real ale and offer lunchtime and evening meals.

Whether staying for business or pleasure, Backfold provides the perfect base to relax and unwind, whilst being well located for a number of fantastic days out.

At Backfold, we have three individually decorated bedrooms, all of which are ensuite. Our beds are extremely comfortable, with luxurious goose down duvets and feather and down pillows and bolsters (Hollowfibre pillows are available on request). Bed linens and towels are quality cotton. Complimentary toiletries from Taylor of London are provided. Hairdryers are available in all rooms.



Our Full English breakfast comprises the finest possible ingredients sourced from small farms in the Ribble Valley. All hen and duck eggs are free range, and we offer goose eggs in season. Vegetarian options are of course also available as are alternatives including kippers.

Even though Backfold is the most traditional of settings, we are bang up to date, providing Freeview TV and free WiFi in all rooms. An iPod dock is also available on request.

“A true delight with a personal touch”

“A dream cottage in a dream village. A very personal service so hard to find these days and by far the most idealistic B&B I have stayed in. Would highly recommend and looking forward to staying again when next in the area.”
