Woodpecker Cottage (15) The Old Stables (13) The Piggeries (9) Mole End (7) Partridge Cottage (6)

A private hamlet of 5* Gold multi award winning self catering cottages, set in 12 acres and bordered by woodland. Nestling on the edge of Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the cottages provide the ideal base to explore the wild grandeur of this beautiful, unspoilt area of Britain.

The gritstone heights and steep wooded cloughs provide wonderful walking country and there is a plethora of opportunities for outdoor activities. There are a number of excellent Tramper Trails in the area for those needing a buggy, and an all terrain vehicle is available for hire in advance.

Nearby the attractive market town of Garstang has the proud boast of being the world�s first Fairtrade Town. The historic city of Lancaster is just 20 minutes away. Kendal and the Lakes are just a 45 minute drive, as are the Yorkshire Dales and the seaside delights of Blackpool.

3 of the cottages have been lovingly restored from the farm buildings of the original C18th farmhouse. Mole End and Woodpecker Cottage are tasteful, stone built, recent additions.

All the cottages offer luxury self catering: tastefully decorated with quality furnishings and appliances.

The cottages are centrally heated and all have wood burning stoves and Mark Wilkinson designer kitchens.. The Old Stables, Mole End, The Piggeries and Woodpecker have Aga cookers and Old Stables even has a gas wok burner!
