Shelagh runs the most wonderful B&B. We travelled as an extended family and took all three rooms, including our own sitting room at this lovely house in a leafy area of Formby. The rooms were all spacious, comfortable, as well appointed as any big hotel I have stayed in - lovely shower/shampoo products, plentiful towels - and spotlessly clean. The... More

I can only echo all the positive remarks that have gone before. A really comfortable, friendly place to stay with a very warm welcome from Shelagh. Fresh flowers in the room, masses of different toiletries to choose from, delicious English breakfast and some. Lovely fresh furnishings, comfortable bed, magazines to read ....... A true first class B & B at... More

I'm glad I read the reviews on Trip Advisor for Brooklands Cottage. There aren't too many places to stay in Formby and this definitely exceeded my expectations. Formby isn't really the vacation hotspot but I needed a place to sleep while visiting a relative for a couple of days. Freshfield train station is very near the cottage so you can... More

My husband and I stayed here with our friends on 2nd of august as we were in formby for a wedding. The place is beautiful, Shelagh is lovely and we had such a good night sleep. Breakfast was the highlight - a massive spread of food in the lovely dining room overlooking the garden. Wonderful stay.

We have just enjoyed a second break at Brooklands. It is the best b&b you could wish for. Shelagh is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are spotless and breakfast is excellent. There is such great attention to detail, fresh flowers, homemade biscuits, fresh milk with tea and coffee (no long-life cartons here!),dazzling white table linen,... More

Myself and two granddaughters have had a four night break at Brooklands Cottage in Bowness on Windewrmere. It is the best equipped self catering accommodation I have ever had. David the landlord was very helpful and his cottage was second to none. Everything we needed was there and more. The only thing the girls were short of was Wi Fi... More

Shelagh makes this place. She could have a B & B on the North Pole and it would still be full throughout the year. Convenient for (all - ha ha) the things to do in Formby. Room was spotless and the breakfast just amazing. A great place to stay.
