Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


A stunning, detached holiday home with a glass-roofed dining room, picture windows and a conservatory with folding glass doors.

Located in the heart of Lancashire’s beautiful countryside, Barnacre Cottages were the first self catering cottages in Lancashire to be awarded Visit England’s 5 Star Gold Award, and have since gone on to achieve many other regional and national awards. They have been created from old stone buildings of an 18th-century farmhouse that had lain empty and neglected for many years, and have now been converted by the owners into beautiful holiday cottages. Situated at the top of the field, Mole End (31222) is a spacious, detached, stone-built holiday cottage with spectacular views over the surrounding Lancashire countryside. With accommodation for seven guests, it is ideal for small groups or families. Sleeping six, Partridge Cottage (31221) is a mid-terraced cottage offering attractively presented and comfortable accommodation, ideal for families and couples. The Old Stables (UKC765), ideal for family reunions or groups of friends, sleeps thirteen; it has a beautiful designer oak kitchen with Belfast sink and Aga. The Piggeries (UKC766), beautifully transformed and extended, offers stunning, detached accommodation for nine guests and has a dining room with a glass roof as well as a Juliet balcony in two of the bedrooms. Largest of the properties, sleeping fifteen, is Woodpecker Cottage (UKC764), which has plenty of entertaining space both inside and out; it has six bedrooms, five of which are en-suite.
Thanks to its proximity to the M6, Blackpool and Lancaster are very easily accessible, as are the Yorkshire Dales, Ribble Valley, Cumbria and the Lake District. Situated in the Forest of Bowland, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Barnacre Cottages are ideal for those who enjoy walking and outdoor activities. There are many footpaths and lanes to follow, including the popular Nicky Nook and Grizedale Valley walks, that follow the river through the valleys and up to the reservoirs. With wildlife in abundance, walking here is a pleasure. Take a break along the way at the nearby village of Scorton, with its café, coffee shop and pub. The popular market town of Garstang, 4 miles, offers a variety of individual shops and a weekly market every Thursday. A wider range of amenities can be found in the historic city of Lancaster, 12 miles, whose attractions include the castle, museum, Tropical Butterfly House, Dukes Theatre and Williamson Park, which hosts various events and plays throughout the summer.
Further afield, a 45-minute drive will take you to Kendal in the Lake District. Windermere, Bowness and Ullswater possess attractions ranging from the World of Beatrix Potter, to a steam train ride at Ravenglass. For those who prefer a coastal landscape, the beautiful Fylde Coast is easily accessible from Barnacre.
Blackpool, 15 miles, has many attractions for people of all ages including The Pleasure Beach, with its 235ft high Pepsi Max roller coaster, Blackpool Zoo, Sea Life Centre, Madame Tussauds, The Illuminations, which are held each autumn and the famous Blackpool Tower. Enjoy a donkey ride on Blackpool’s award-winning beaches. Other coastal towns include Thornton Cleveleys and the cosmopolitan Lytham St Annes, which has a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants. The cottages are ideally situated with lots to see and do right on the doorstep. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 1½ miles.
These properties can be booked together to accommodate larger parties.
