Additional Rate and Availability Information
This listing only shows one base price, not the rates for the 5 individual cottages, these have their own separate listings on TripAdvisor with more accurate and detailed prices.

The base rate of £500 is a mid range price, more than it will cost for the 3 bedroomed sleeps 6 Partridge, but less than the large 6 bedroomed, sleeps 15 Woodpecker cottage.
The price will vary depending on which property you choose and the time of year.

The main holiday dates such as Easter, Christmas and the New Year break are peak times of year and we are always fully booked. If you require a large cottage or accommodation for a group, then it is always a good idea to book as far in advance as you can.

For prices,
it will obviously cost more for the 6 bedroomed Woodpecker than the 3 bedroomed Partridge.

Prices are for 2 or 3 nights over the weekend. For flexible start days, please contact us.

Short breaks are available all year round.

A traditional place is the Lake District, usually Windermere and Ambleside, which can be reached in less than an hour from here.

The Pleasure Beach now has a Nickleodeon theme for younger children. The Pepsi Max roller coaster and other thrilling rides. An ice rink and shows. The Tower is worth a visit, with the ballroom that held the finals of the Strictly Come in 2010, plus an amazing circus. Sandcastles is a tropical indoor pool on the promenade. The Illuminations in autumn on the promenade with tram and horse carriage rides.The football grounds of M... more
