    About this property

    Relax by the stream in the garden or visit the historic city of Lancaster. The Lake District, coast and countryside are also easily reached.
    This traditional detached cottage is the perfect choice for families looking to explore the Lancashire countryside, South Lakes and the Fylde Coast. It is conveniently located in the Lancashire village of Forton, just 3 miles from the popular market town of Garstang which offers an abundance of individual shops, cafés, pubs and a weekly market on a Thursday. Brookside Cottage provides a good standard of accommodation, with a great outdoor space, which has a gated area to sit in and watch the brook trickle by.
    Guests can enjoy walks from the doorstep, with the picturesque Lancaster Canal only ½ a mile away for walking, cycling and fishing, or even day boat hire. There are also several fishing lakes available locally. With Scorton village nestling at the foot of the Bowland Fells just 1½ miles away, there is easy access to the Forest of Bowland (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), where guests can enjoy walks on the fells or drive through the beautiful Trough of Bowland.
    There is a highly rated traditional country pub serving food just 400 yards away from the cottage. A wider range of amenities can be found in the nearby historic city of Lancaster, 8 miles away; here you can visit Lancaster Castle, museums or even the Butterfly House at Williamson Park. Windermere, Kendal and the South Lakes are just a 40-minute drive. The popular seaside town of Blackpool, with its beach, famous tower, Pleasure Beach, zoo and Sandcastle Water Park, is also worth a visit. Beach 18 miles. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 400 yards.

    "Had a lovely holiday, cottage clean and welcoming"
    Julie ‐ 6 Sep 2018
    "Just the best cottage, with the nicest owner. We couldn’t have asked for better. Brilliant area for touring around, and we were always happy to come back to this lovely house. Thanks to Jean for the welcome pack, the visit and for being a thoroughly nice lady! X"

    "We loved this beautiful farmhouse! We were a party of 5, including my 85 year old mum. The ground floor bedroom and en suite were perfect for her limited mobility. The rooms are spacious and perfectly furnished for up to 8 people (smallest room is a bunk, so probably best for children). The 2 double rooms have enormous beds and great en suites. The kitchen/diner is very spacious and light and has every facility. The sofas and chairs in the sitting room are very comfy. Everything was spotlessly clean!There is a lovely garden to the front, and several sitting out areas.Shopping can be done in Garstang about 3 miles away, and we found lots of places to eat out within a few miles.The location is very rural, in pretty Lancashire countryside. The road alongside the front garden is a B road, but can be quite busy at times, and there is a cattle farm across the way with the attendant farm vehicles coming and going sometimes, and 'rural' smells on the breeze. Altogether, we had a lovely week at Brookside Cottage, and would definitely book again, if circumstances allowed."

    "One of the most comfortable holiday cottages we have stayed in for furnishings - sofa's and beds really good. The garden is enclosed so our two dogs were safe and there is a nice pub (Patten Arms) a five minute walk up the road."
    AWCB ‐ 20 May 2018
    "The owners have thought of everything in this cottage. Pet friendly with an enclosed garden, however a busy road means driving out to discover peaceful canalside walks. The local pub serves excellent food. In all, a really lovely cottage, a credit to the owners, huge, comfortable beds, spotless, and everything provided. Highly recommended."

    "We had a great weekend away with all the family. We were greeted on arrival and felt to made very welcome. The cottage was lovely and clean and the basket of tea, coffee, milk and bread etc was a lovely surprise. Would highly recommend to others."
