“Fabulous cottage in peaceful setting”

Reviewed 17 Jun 2016

Wonderful peaceful setting in this lovely cottage surrounded by wildlife. The hot tub was lovely to relax in and the only disappointing thing was let down by the weather. Cottage is equipped with everything that you require and Rob and Sally go out of their way to provide excellent customer service.

“Lovely cottage and surroundings”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2015

This is a lovely place to stay with everything you could need and more! The setting and hot tub are nice too!

“Fantastic!”

Reviewed 22 Apr 2014

A beautiful cottage which is well looked after and in a great spot. Very comfortable and was not overlooked at all when using hot tub. Owners were very helpful and friendly from booking onwards. Hope to return!!

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 16 Feb 2014

Beautiful modern cottage in countryside. Perfect place for a quiet weekend away. Hot-tub was simply superb! Warm welcome with fresh eggs was a nice touch as well. Plan on coming again. Only negative was that the bed was too small for me (6ft 4 tall) but that is a problem in most places.

“fantastic cottage and location”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2013

fantastic cottage in ideal location in froest of bowland and for trios to coast / lakes. High quality and great jacuzzi. Very private and not overlooked.

We always endeavour to make our guests stay a special one, glad you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to welcoming your sister, a booking made on the back of your referral, thank you

“A hidden gem - beautiful cottage in glorious part of the world... Reluctant to share!!”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2013

Stayed here for a week in May when the weather was typically "Lancashire" even on a dull grey day the cottage is bright and airy with wonderful views and the visiting bird population never ceased to entertain... Fresh eggs on arrival from the resident hens were delicious! A couple of footpaths are easily accessible from the cottage to the nearby Beacon Fell or a short car ride to the delights of Parlick and the fells. Beautiful part of the world. Will be going back and look forward to the re-opening of a couple of pubs that weren't available on our first visit. We ate in quite a lot to avoid driving which was actually quite nice - good provisions on offer in Garstang or the nearby Barton Grange Farm Shop and the kitchen well equipped so all rather nice and laid back. It's a lovely new build set behind a row of houses (none of which you can see from the cottage) and finished to a high standard ie underfloor heating, mood lighting and some really nice features. A truly special stay!

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay it means we are doing our job right :) The landscape and wildlife are a joy to watch and never cease to amaze, we hope to see you back at the cottage again.
