The Property

Garstang 3.5 miles. This detached, stone-built cottage is set on a hillside, on the owner's working livestock farm, less than four miles from the small Lancashire town of Garstang, the world’s first Fairtrade town, and only 10 miles from the Fylde Coast and 11 miles from Lancaster. A former farmhouse, this Garstang cottage boasts fabulous views of the surrounding countryside across to the Fylde Coast, and on a clear day, the Welsh mountains and the Cheshire hills can be seen. Situated in a lovely countryside location, surrounded by open farmland and narrow inter-connecting lanes, this is a delightful base for a family or a group of friends, and with public footpaths running through the farmland, there is some great walking on offer. This cottage near Garstang is bright and spacious and boasts a large farmhouse kitchen with an oil-fired range cooker, a dining area and a stone floor, while the spacious sitting room with feature fireplace is ideally situated to take in the long-distance views. Outside, there is a small, front lawned garden and to the rear of this Lancashire holiday home is a spacious courtyard area, where you can enjoy the amazing sunsets over Morecambe Bay and the Cumbrian Fells, and from the farm, views of the Lake District hills and the Isle of Man can be enjoyed. The Fylde Coast, Blackpool and Morecambe are nearby, plus within driving distance are the Forest of Bowland and southern Lake District, both of which are well worth a visit. This charming Garstang cottage is ideal for a holiday in Lancashire.

About the location

GARSTANG

Lancaster 11 miles; Morecambe 15 miles.

Garstang is a small town within the Wyre Borough of Lancashire, famous for declaring itself the world's first Fairtrade town. Known locally for its tasty home-grown produce, this small town offers a warm welcome and a wealth of specialist and individual shops where you can pick up a number of treats that you won’t find on any supermarket shelf; don’t miss the local cheesemonger, Dewlay, for a wedge of fine Lancashire or Garstang Blue cheese! Running right through the centre of the town is the peaceful Lancaster Canal, where you can watch the passing canal boats cruise by and enjoy the abundance of wildlife it supports. The nearby Millennium Green, an area situated on the western bank of the River Wyre, has actually been designated for wildlife conservation and events in the community. Admire the views over the Bowland Hills before enjoying a visit to the High Street, where you will find plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants in which you can enjoy the local hospitality, or visit Old Holly Farm and the Braedens Pony Trekking Centre, which make for great family days out. The surrounding countryside provides great walking opportunities, whilst the RSPB nature reserves at Leighton Moss and Morecambe Bay are well worth a visit. The Trough of Bowland is nearby, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while the many varied delights of Blackpool and Morecambe, as well as the towns of Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Windermere and the stunning Lake District National Park are all within easy reach, making this a great destination for all the family.
