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.
