Discover the Ribble Valley and Fylde Coast from this converted shippon. Visit market towns of Clitheroe, Longridge and Garstang, or spend a day at the coast.

Dating back to the early 1800s, this detached, stone built former shippon provides beautifully presented accommodation, and offers plenty of charm and character as well as having all the modern comforts to be expected from a holiday home, including open plan living, underfloor heating, woodburner and wi-fi. It is surrounded by unspoilt countryside and is perfect for a couple but with the capacity to accommodate up to four people looking for a comfortable base from which to explore all that the area has to offer.

The property is located in the small hamlet of Whitechapel at the foot of Beacon Fell. Close to Garstang and Longridge, gateway towns to the Forest of Bowland designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is ideal for those who love the great outdoors with some of the best walking and cycling opportunities in Lancashire. Other activities available locally include fishing and golf.

Whilst the property enjoys a quiet rural location, it is very accessible and there are lots to see and do within easy driving distance.

    A delightful and immaculate cottage in a lovely rural setting. It was a very good location for our holiday requirements and a very cosy retreat. It is the best accommodation we have stayed in, in that area which spans over 15 years. We hope to return, and thank you for your kind hospitality.

    Perfect. Friendly, welcoming owners have provided high quality fixtures, furniture etc. Spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Welcome pack, eggs, bread and milk much appreciated. Quiet retreat, but shops in Garstang a short drive away. Excellent base for walking, cycling and touring. Think we have found a rural idyll we will be glad to escape to many more times.

    Excellent place to stay and explore a beautiful area. Very rural so be prepared. Farm shop within a garden centre about 10 mins away provides quality products, including bread, cakes, meats, pies etc. The property has been furnished to a very high standard and includes many extras. Owners very friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Plenty of wildlife to see from property.

    Beautiful barn in a beautiful location. Wildlife abounds and lovely local, and further afield, walks. Forest of Bowland is a hidden gem with plenty to see and do in and around the area. Unreservedly recommended.
