“What a fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed July 20, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Our party consisted of 4 generations of our family some of whom stayed locally and just stayed for a couple of nights but there were 5 of us for the full week and the general opinion was that The Stables was superb. The open plan living/dining/kitchen/conservatory complete with AGA and American style Fridge/freezer was where we could all be at one time with noboby being excluded from what was going on and enough space to not feel crowded. The play area is well equipped and our grandson had great fun there as well as on the tennis court - with all equipment provided. Our hosts Sue and Terry and family couldn't have been more friendly (thanks for the home bakes when we arrived) and helpful. We were also lucky with the weather which was a bonus. As some of our family stay in the area we will be back to stay.

“AMAZING Stay at Barnacre - The Old Stables”
Reviewed February 2, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

We stayed in the Old Stables that accommodates 8 plus travel cots. Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner who gave us a very warm welcome. He showed us around the accommodation & made us feel at home. We felt Barnacre Cottages offered a high quality self catering accommodation with 5 * luxurious touches such as an open plan lounge, kitchen with granite worktops and appliances by Miele, huge dining room & conservatory, utlity room, down stairs games room, understairs cloak room & toilet, 4 bedrooms, one with en suite and a family bathroom. Amenities include a fridge freezer with ice and water machine, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, gas hob, microwave, TV, video, CD player, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. In the Old Stables we had an Aga cooker which was easy to use and made fantastic toast!!!! We also had a log burner and plenty of wood and coal in the bunkers outside the propery. There was central heating , bed linen, duvets and towels included in the price. We also requested a travel cot & a highchair. The area is absolutely gorgeous, there is a play park for the kids, tennis court, chickens & lambsto feed & plenty of good walks. We drove to a nearby village called Scorton & enjoyed a visit to The Barn. We also enjoyed Old Holy Farm at Cabus & a trip into Garstang. We will definately be returning. We had a fabulous time & would reccomend this place, 5* luxury - it definately is!!! Thanks to Terry & Sue for being so accommodating. This place is a credit to you both.

“Great Getaway”
Reviewed January 14, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Our second visit to The Stables, Terry and Sue do all they can to look after you at these "tip-top" properties located in a tranquil spot. We were welcomed with flowers, chocs and their Barnacre free-range eggs. Furnished to a very high standard - my wife enjoyed cooking on the Aga but there are also plenty of excellent eating places in the area.

The cottages are ideally situated in the Forest of Bowland but close to the Lancashire coast and just an hour away from the Lakes.

We will return.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 26, 2010 for a stay in July 2010

My family stayed at Barnacre Cottages for 5 weeks last Summer (July 2010), when they showed me the pictures and videos, I regret that I was not there with them. The owners are upon the nicest people you could possibly deal with, I was communicating with them for the whole reservation process and they were very helpful. my family stayed at Woodpecker and Mall end cottages and they were so happy,I with no doubt recommend the place for anyone seeking a peaceful and memorable holiday.
