Lancashire

A cottage holiday provides the perfect base for exploring this varied area, whether you''re looking for a restful and relaxing break or an exciting adventure with friends or family Lancashire is a hidden gem and provides a great self-catering holiday destination.

The county has many facets; wild and beautiful countryside, seaside character, bustling cities and remote rural landscapes.

Wherever you choose to stay, there''s plenty to see and do. You could visit Clitheroe''s Norman Keep and enjoy the view over the surrounding area to Pendle Hill, made famous by the legend of its witches. Don''t leave this quaint market town without a visit to D.Byrne and Co. where you can explore the cellars of this quirky Victorian wine shop and choose a tipple to enjoy back at your cottage after supper.

The historic city of Lancaster offers great shopping and tempting restaurants as well as a famous castle, where you can enjoy an exciting tour of the courtrooms, cells and ancient towers. When you''ve finished at the castle, why not take a walk around the beautiful Williamson Park with its butterfly house and copper-topped Memorial.

Lancashire offers plenty of coastline to explore, most famously, the bustling seaside resort of Blackpool with its tower and the Pleasure Beach theme park. You could head South to picturesque Lytham St Anne''s, or North to the massive expanse of Morecambe Bay. Don''t miss the chance to visit Carnforth Station to have a cup of tea in the cafe and play out your own version of ''Brief Encounter'' under the station clock.

Close to the small village of Hurst Green visit the stunning Stonyhurst College. This prestigious school is famous as a film location and has many literary associations: Arthur Conan Doyle is a former pupil and it is also reported that J.R.R.Tolkien wrote part of The Lord of the Rings here.

If walking is your thing you could tackle a section of the scenic Ribble Way during your stay. This wildlife rich trek follows the River Ribble along its valley, traditionally walked from mouth to source. Why not take the little ones along to Bowland''s Wild Boar Park where they''ll feed chicks and see boar, deer, meerkats and even a white wallaby as well as enjoying a tractor ride.

    Set on the promenade, with uninterrupted views across stunning Morecambe Bay to a backdrop of Lakeland hills and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Little Gem enjoys stunning sunrises and sunsets in high summer, as well as breathtaking cloudscapes around dawn and dusk. This fantastic terraced property, over four floors, offers beautifully presented and very well appointed, spacious and comfortable accommodation. There are two good-sized en-suite bedrooms that benefit from superb sea views, and a south-facing sun room that opens onto a decked terrace.

    In the summer months there are many events in or around Morecambe, including the Holker Garden Festival (June), the Catch the Wind Festival (July), Morecambe Sandcastle Festival (July), Heysham Classic Car and Bike Show (August), Morecambe Vintage by the Sea Festival (September) and the Westmorland Agricultural Show at Crooklands Showground (September). Walking or cycling is a joy along the 4½-mile seafront to the pretty village of Heysham, itself well worth a visit with its ancient St Patrick’s Church, mysterious 10th-century rock tombs and pretty harbour setting. There are cycle paths galore in the area from the town centre into the heart of Lancaster and beyond, or enjoy a quiet pootle along the canal towpath. For the more ambitious, there is the Morecambe Bay Cycleway, set up and run by Sustrans, running over 100 miles from Walney Island to Glasson Dock. Walkers can enjoy a guided cross bay walk, or alternatively Morecambe is within 45 minutes of stunning Lakeland and Dales scenery. Close by there is an 18-hole golf course, and plenty of welcoming country pubs within easy reach of Morecambe to enjoy a drink by the scenic Lancaster canal or River Lune. For children, there are beaches, swing parks and the noted Happy Mount Park, with a children’s play area and extensive water splash zone. Para-sailing can also be enjoyed on most days at the westerly end of the promenade, and sailing ‘taster’ sessions with the Morecambe Sailing Club.

    In Morecambe centre there is a bowling alley, cinema and evening entertainment at the Platform venue. The famous Art Deco Midland Hotel is also well worth a visit for a special occasion. The historic and vibrant city of Lancaster, 4 miles, oozes Georgian character and charm with its ancient priory church, castle and museums, theatres and many places to eat. Lancaster also has a vibrant street market on Saturdays with street food and myriad other interesting stalls.
    The popular market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is 16 miles, and for fabulous scenery and walks, why not try picturesque Arnside and Sandside, 14 miles? Historic Sunderland Point is 8 miles, whilst across the river, Condor Green and Glasson Dock are 9 miles: both remnants of a bygone era, one famous as a smugglers’ haunt, the other a failed attempt to establish itself as a busy port for the export of Yorkshire coal to Ireland and the west coast of England. With so much to see and do, Little Gem really is the perfect base for a relaxing holiday. Shop 150 yards, pub ½ mile, restaurant ¾ mile.
