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


Within driving distance of some beautiful areas such as the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland and many more.

Surrounded by beautiful Lancashire countryside and enjoying a peaceful location, The Hay Barn is a comfortable and welcoming home from home. Set on a small 32-acre farm with 2 acres of mixed species of young forest planted in 1989 and dating back to 1636, this sandstone terraced property, formerly a childrens home, has been creatively transformed into individual cottages which are full of charm and character, thanks to its original timbers and sandstone archways, which the owner has lovingly restored.
The sunny southern aspect from the first floor living room and balcony gives uninterrupted panoramic views of the tranquil countryside, and on a clear day you can even see the Isle of Man which is 80 miles away. Why not enjoy a little stroll before breakfast to take in the peace of the Quernmore Valley and witness spectacular sunrises over Clougha Pike, equally pretty in the evening, the sun setting over Morecambe Bay and Black Coombe mountain is worth coming a long way to see, and as for the magnificent sunsets and views of the Lake District, they put to shame the very best postcards.
The Hay Barn is located on Langthwaite Farm which is a working sheep and lamb farm near the Lancashire village of Quernmore. It is ideally located to explore the Yorkshire Dales, Blackpool and the Fylde coast, the Forest of Bowland (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and the Lake District. Whilst the farm enjoys a peaceful rural location, it is only 3 miles to the M6 so it makes the ideal touring base.
Situated along the meandering River Lune, the historic city of Lancaster with its wealth of shops, restaurants, theatres, pubs, churches, takeaways and sports and leisure facilities is just 1 mile away. Why not visit John O’Gaunts Gate at Lancaster Castle, the Priory, Lancaster Cathedral, the judges’ lodgings, or the maritime museum on the Old Slave Trade Quayside?
At Sunderland Point read the poem on Sambo’s Grave and wander to the little picturesque St Peter’s Church at Heysham. Visit cosy little Glasson Dock and the traditional market towns of Bentham, Garstang and Kirkby Lonsdale.
Other places of interest within easy driving distance include Blackpool, Fleetwood, Kendal and the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales National Park, Forest of Bowland (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), Brontë Country, Hawes, Wensleydale cheese factory and Ingleton with its caves and waterfalls, or take a ride on the Carlisle to Settle railway.
Ideal for those who love the outdoors, there are lots of lovely local walks along country lanes as well as by the coast, canal, rivers and hills. Other popular activities available locally include cycling, coarse and fly fishing, boating, horse riding, golf, pony trekking, potholing and caving. Nature lovers and bird watchers will enjoy a visit to Leighton Moss RSPB Centre, or Gaitbarrows Nature Reserve. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    Lovely place to stay, full of character and great to have a shower room/bathroom with each bedroom. Fantastic views, quite close to town with easy access by car. Loads of information on activities and places to visit. Donald was very welcoming and checked on us in the temperatures of -12C to make sure we were ok.
