    We loved staying at the old post office. The accommodation was spacious, excellently presented and equipped and with high ceilings and some lovely features. The village of Fence has a lovely feel to it with lots of charming stone cottages and it's easy to get to and close to lots of lovely villages, walks and attractions nearby. There is a shop in the village and plenty of supermarkets within a short drive. There are some attractive and private outside spaces to enjoy if the weather is nice. Book with confidence.

    Was back in the UK for work and brought the family along. I'm from this area so I know it well and wanted to stay fairly close to Burnley where I was working. Didn't fancy staying 2 weeks in a hotel with my wife and kid as it would have been cramped and restricting so opted for a cottage rental. Found the perfect property for our stay in the village of Fence which is a great location with a lot to offer. The property had recently been fully renovated to a very high standard giving everything a new feeling. The landlords, Nathan and Fil, were great, very welcoming and attentive. During the stay they provided us with a high chair and cot at no extra cost. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will definitely be returning at some point in the future. Can't recommend this property enough.
