“Wondeful cottage amazing weekend”
Reviewed September 20, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

I booked this cottage as a weekend away for me and my partner and honeatly the pictures just dont do it enough justice. As soon as we walked through the door the cottage was immaculate and so inviting. The views outside were breathtaking and we had a few sheep come along and visit us. Everything was readily avaiable and the hot tub was just lovely. Cant wait to come and visit again! Worth the money. Thankyou Sally and Rob

“Summer getaway to England”
Reviewed August 10, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Lovely scenic location. The hot tub was great and the lodge was clean and had everything we needed for 2 couples with babies. Good central location for our jollies to Manchester Liverpool and Blackpool. Supermarkets in 5 miles in either direction so stock up. Local pub 'the Green Man' does fantastic food. Sunday roast was plentiful and tasty. Would recommend :0)

“The Cottage is a beautiful hidden gem.”
Reviewed July 25, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I stayed for a week with my daughter and our little dog, We had the most amazing time, The cottage is beautiful, very clean and has a home from home feel, It is kept to a very hight standard whilst we were there a delivery of beautiful shrubs arrived for the patio. If you like animals you will be in heaven, But the views are truly beautiful, The cows and sheep are friendly we even seen deer whilst relaxing in the hot tub later on in the day, Rob and Sally are very helpful and really friendly, I was close to tears driving away, Can't recommend this special place enough,can't wait to return. Thank you, we had a lovely holiday.

“LOVELY !!”
Reviewed June 26, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a girls weekend away here and were really impressed with this purpose built chalet type cottage.

Lovely idyllic spot fabulous view .Everything very clean and tidy, beautifully decorated with attention to every detail.Everything you could want dishwasher,microwave ,board games ,tv,extra towels,2 bathrooms, and the icing on the cake the ..... HOT TUB!!!!.
Make sure you take everything you need no shops nearby and do not even think about ordering a take away !!
The nearest pub 'The Green Man' is about a mile away, lovely pub.We thought about walking but the owner very kindly asked his son to drop us off !! BRILLIANT!!.(The were taxi numbers in the welcome pack if needed)
Great pub food and lovely service, friendly staff.The bar lady Leanne even posted my bank card back to me at home after I stupidly left it on her bar !!

Very friendly service from the owners very good correspondence beforehand from Sally, and Rob very helpful on site .
Make sure you check the website beforehand for contact number the sat nav took us slightly array !! But we quickly found it after a call to the owner.
LOVELY PLACE .
We had a fab weekend beautiful view lovely accommodation.
Would visit again without hesitation !.

“Wonderful week!”
Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in June 2016

I can't believe that I am only just writing this review!

We stayed last year, back in July for one week. What a beautiful place this is. The cottage is of a good size, with everything that you could need and more. All kitchen equipment, a few books, games, magazines. Even a washer and dryer. And, of course, the wonderful hot tub. There are beautiful views over a lake, and lots of wildlife to watch and admire.

The week that we stayed we had lots of rain, but it actually seemed to make the place even more beautiful. Watching the rain coming down whilst curled up next to the fire was so relaxing.

The location of the cottage is also fantastic - close enough of a drive to local amenities, but far enough away that you feel like you can "get away from it all".

We would love to visit again soon, here's hoping! Thanks Sally and Rob for letting us stay at this beautiful place!

“instant calm”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Peaceful spot with views over a small lake.Dawn chorus wonderful. Well presented "cottage" with practical kitchen ,effective shower and all warm and comfy. Lots of country walks right from the door and Bowland forest and Fylde coast within easy drive. Dogs welcomed but no fenced in garden so take a long lead if yours likely to wander. Hot tub sited by patio doors so no chilly trek and you can watch the lake birds from the tub.
No local shops so take milk, and your first meal provisions with you.1.3 miles to pub but uphill on the way home and you'll need a torch.
Patchy phone and mobile data locally.
Didn't want to come home.
