    "The cottage had everything you could possibly need, very comfortable and welcome basket on arrival was most appreciated"
    Julian ‐ 28 Oct 2019
    "Fantastic relaxing holiday. Centralised location, not far from anywhere i.e - Lancaster, Morecambe, the Lakes, and Blackpool etc... however out of the way enough to relax.The cottage has everything you need as a home away from home with plenty of room. We absolutely loved the cottage and would definitely book again but for longer next time."
    Linda ‐ 1 Oct 2019
    "We all really enjoyed the property, lovely and cosy. It had everything we needed. The only negative I would say is there is no pavement to walk the dogs and the road outside is very busy with cars racing up and down, quite dangerous. I would still go back though."
    Helen ‐ 21 Aug 2019
    "Comfy enough cottage, let down by 60mph road outside.. the outside garden and stream is to the front of the property so sitting out is not very peaceful due to the traffic noise ....."
    Mark ‐ 8 Aug 2019
    "Cottage lovely and very well equipped.There is a main road outside but you don't hear any noise when inside.Local shops are a drive away, but only about 5 mins or so."
    Anne ‐ 18 Jul 2019
    "The cottage was ideal for our needs in location and an enclosed garden etc. for our dog. Our dog is 13 now and was not interested in leaping over the wall to the road but younger dogs may well think about it. The garden was large and the cottage had everything you could think of as regards kitchen utensils and crockery and plenty of each.A real bonus for me was the downstairs bedroom with en-suite, as I had recently broken my knee and ruptured the tendon and having no stairs was a great help.The laminate flooring everywhere was a little difficult for our elderly dog but we managed with rugs and rubber matting from the car to help him. He had a great holiday !Garstang is a great little town with a large supermarket and chemist and surgery and also many smaller shops and a market. Trips to Morecambe, Preston and Chorley were successful for tracing family tree connections and birth places.Thank you."

    "Lovely cottage with plenty of room for a party of 8 and a dog or twoLarge kitchen with everything you could possibly need to cater for everyone. A lovely large table and chairs that seats 8 and 2 fridges. Comfortable seating in the lounge for 7 adults.Useful to have 3 bathrooms when there are so many sharing the property.Parking for 2 vehicles (though the entrance is quite tight) and nice areas outside for enjoying an evening drink."

    "the cottage is fantastic"
    Steve ‐ 8 May 2019
    "A well equipped and very clean cottage with a good sized, secure garden/drive area. There is a small brook at the bottom of the garden which is well fenced off for the safety of kids and pets. There are large super kingsize beds in 2 of the rooms both with ensuite facilities as well as an additional bathroom. We went to the local pub which is only a five minute walk away, (although there are no footpaths and the road is 60 mph) the food was very good and the owners very welcoming. The cottage is in a good location for exploring all the area has to offer with Lake Windermere being 40 mins drive away. Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again."
    Elizabeth ‐ 5 May 2019
    "We arrived to find a couple of weather related problems which were sorted out swiftly and professionally by the owner. She couldn’t have been more helpful soon had us cosy and warm by lighting a fire and finding a fan heater to boost our elderly mother’s temperature. The beds were extremely comfortable, the showers were hot and the towels fluffy and plentiful.We’d only booked the cottage for three nights due to family commitments but all wished we could have stayed longer to explore the surrounding area. The"

    "Even better than expected, attention to detail was spot on! Beds were so comfy and the house was spotless! Views were stunning and the local pub was only a 5 min walk which served lovely food and drinks at a reasonable price. Definitely stay again."
    Confirmed guest ‐ 2 Apr 2019
    "The family were extremely helpful and friendly. Lovely place to have a weekend."
    Lynda ‐ 27 Mar 2019
    "Lovely place, plenty of space for us all, very well equipped.The only drawback was it was to close to a very busy road which had no pavement, so every time you wanted to walk the dogs you had to drive first."
    Alison ‐ 24 Mar 2019
    "A lovely cottage in a rural area but close enough to amenities. The cottage is well-equipped and the kitchen is huge. We stayed in winter and loved the log fire. The brook at the bottom of the garden would be nice and relaxing to sit by with a glass of wine in warmer weather. As two families staying together we found the accommodation spacious and liked the parking spaces available. The cottage lost a mark for location, however, because of the tight turn in to the entrance from the road. Recommended visits are to the Rose Bowl in Garstang and Old Holly farm."
    Claire ‐ 16 Jan 2019
    "Great space for 8 adults..kitchen has lots of space and 2 fridges a real bonus. Space for 4 cars and great bathroom space..owner really friendly. Just wished the fire was working to make it super cosy.."
    Paul ‐ 4 Jan 2019
    "A wonderfully spacious cottage for two families of 4 and a dog. Large bedrooms and very comfy beds, cozy living room and a spacious kitchen diner. Garstang is just 10 minutes away and the local pub is a 5 min walk. Had a lovely New year break, would definitely recommend."
    Gemma ‐ 3 Nov 2018
    "Absolutely lovely cottage, with everything you could ever need provided. Slightly more remote than we expected, with nothing really in walking distance"
