A wonderful couple of days exploring (by mtb and foot), around Slaidburn whilst staying at Merrybent. Luxury indeed with every need thoughtfully catered for. Excellent hosts - knowledgeable of the area. Their evening meals are highly recommended too 😍
Date of stay: October 2018
The hosts were very warm, friendly and interesting. Breakfast was outstanding, huge selection of fruit and pastries with hot breakfast available to order. On the day of check out we went for a walk recommended by the hosts who even provided a map. We came back to collect our bags and despite being well after check-out, we were offered more tea and fresh scones. We can’t recommend this B&B enough, we felt like royalty we were treated so well and it has everything you need whether you’re a couple enjoying a nice weekend away or ramblers needing a good shower, warm bed and a flask of tea.

If you're looking for somewhere away from it all, with beautiful views, delicious (and very plentiful) food, and delightful and helpful hosts, I could not recommend Merrybent Hill B&B highly enough. Every detail was carefully thought about, and the standard of the accommodation is superb (comfy beds too!). The word 'luxury' is sometimes bandied about a bit too easily, but it is *thoroughly* deserved in this case. Date of stay: August 2018
My wife and I stayed for one night, just a spur of the moment get away.
This beautiful b&b is situated in an elevated location with jaw dropping views of Lancashire.
On arrival Helen was waiting at the door for us and welcomed us in, Bob her husband also gave us both a warm welcome, we both felt right at home straight away, after a natter we were given coffee in the dinning room and left to admire the views which are to die for.
Helen showed us to our room and around our separate bathroom, we had everything we needed and more.
We had booked an evening meal, I knew we were in good hands when Bob said he worked in catering. We both had the chicken dinner which was a delight and for afters we had chocolate torte, silky smooth and extremely Moorish. I can honestly say it was better than most restaurants that you would pay a lot more for.
After a good night's sleep and an extra hour when the clocks went back......result, we had breakfast, everything from homemade compote which was superb to fresh fruit and cereals, then croissants and Danish pastries brought out on a stand.
Then we both had the full english, and it was fantastic, very well cooked.
This charming place may not be near anywhere but it doesn't need to be because that's what makes it special, two owners that care about their business and more about their clientele makes Merrybent hill one of the best B&B's we've ever stayed in.

We stayed for one night in the luxurious Oak room which was very large with a Super King bed and fabulous bathroom. All the essentials plus every possible accessory and facility you could think of - coffee delivered to our room before breakfast - huge choice at breakfast which was beautifully cooked and best of all Helen and Bob are charming friendly hosts for which nothing is too much trouble. The location is stunning with breath taking views over the surrounding moorland. Can highly recommend and we will certainly be back! Date of stay: October 2018
Advertised as a luxury B & B and lives up to its name and more. Stayed for a couple of nights. Simply could not fault it at all. The attention to detail is fantastic, everything is top of range, the warmth of Bob and Helen genuine, very helpful, easy going, relaxing, excellent breakfast and evening meal, and I mean excellent. Probably the most comfortable stay I have had anywhere in my many years. Location and views are brilliant and with the quality of the rooms and service it can't be beaten. If you want a definition of true excellent customer service, stay here. We will be returning. Date of stay: September 2018
