The Northern England / Lancashire region
Lancashire is full of great fun, exciting activities and amazing attractions to entertain the whole family during the holidays. Whether you visit for a refreshing break or an enjoyable day out, you can be sure to be met with Lancashire's renowned warmth and friendliness.
The districts of Lancashire each have their own character and charm. Some are centred on cities and town, others embrace rivers, valleys and rural villages. Some are steeped in the heritage of the Industrial Revolution, others are more medieval. Some lie in the rugged hills, others on the coastal plains. Each one is worth getting to know individually. Together they make up Lancashire in all its glory, the perfect getaway destination. Mulberry Cottage is nestled in the heart of Lancashire in the borough of Wyre where unspoilt countryside goes hand in hand with market towns and traditional seaside resorts.

Great place to stay for us with family in the local area. Owners had gone to the trouble of decorating the place for Christmas which was a lovely touch and really appreciated. Upstairs rooms of good size and up to date décor and facilities. Downstairs area somewhat limited in size especially as there were 8 of us, but appropriate given the age and nature of the property being an old cottage. This was also reflected in the very reasonable rates - Would recommend
Thank you for taking the time to review my property. I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Dairy. Im particularly happy since it was over the Xmas period and we like to go the extra mile over Christmas.. its nice to be appreciated. I will let the everyone know you appreciated it :D It was a pleasure doing business with you and you will be always very welcome so do not hesitate to get in touch

I booked in November very last minute and the owner of the property was very helpful and understanding. The property itself is small but excellent value for the price I paid and at the risk of sounding clichéd - did exactly what it said on the tin. I would definitely stay there again.
