Overlooking the village is the intriguing Stanfield's Tower built around 1890. A local grocer Jonathan Stansfield was purported to have built this circular rough stone tower to provide himself with a fine view over Ribblesdale from the top, but the height fell somewhat short. Below is the popular picnic spot of the Watermeetings. A Bronze Age axe believed to be 3,500 years old, was found near the tower in 1952 by a local man.
Blacko is set on a hill overlooking Pendle Water.
Malkin Tower Farm Holiday Cottages
Malkin Tower Farm was converted into luxury self catering holiday cottages in 2002,
retaining as much character as possible. All the cottages contain the original doorways and windows, along with the orgininal oak beams and window seats. An internet connection has been installed in both cottages and the Piggery . We offer a complimentary welcome pack. (we will do a shop for you if required)
Although we are in the heart of the countryside, we are conveniently situated approximately 4 miles from the M65. The Dales, Witch and Bronte country and of course the seaside are all within easy reach. There are pubs and restaurants nearby, beautiful walks and mill shopping with Boundary Mill being just 5 miles away.
For walkers and cyclists we have secure wet weather gear storage available. We will also collect you from the train or bus station if necessary.
Short and mini breaks are available.
