This is a very nicely put together cottage, very private. We found it clean and spacious. The village is a lovely setting with good local amenities. The butchers and the bakers and the fish and chip shop where exceptional.

What a great find! We needed to host family, locally, for Christmas and this place made all the difference! Homely, well furnished and clean, it was really nice space to host our family and we would thoroughly recommend this place. The village has everything you could need as well - the pizza and fish and chips were first class!

Overall, great house in fantastic village with everything needed. Cakes in the local patisserie were fantastic! Fresh fruit and veg from the veg shop, great selection at butchers. Easy to get to some wonderful walking within short drives and getting to Blackpool for a day with the kids was easy!

Great cottage but car parking for one car only - not two. Care needed at all times due to on road parking by the house opposite the entrance to the Barn making access difficult. Several housekeeping issues drawn to the attention of the owners which are very easy to resolve. Property is very roomy and well laid out. Overview said light up the BBQ whRead moreich did not appear to be provided. Very good local fish shop and bakery. An excellent base for visiting the lakes and enjoying the stunning scenery. Hide
