The property

This detached, stone-built cottage is situated in its own private grounds, on the edge of the historic village of Pilling, just a twenty-minute walk to the sea and 15 miles from Blackpool.

The current owners have converted the old byre (cow shed) into this outstanding, single-storey eco-friendy home.

It includes an inflatable outdoor hot tub which is available in the spring and summer months and is perfect for a romantic holiday, or just for those wishing to get away from it all and relax.

Boasting a contemporary design, the open plan living features luxurious underfloor heating, powered by a ground source heating system and solar panels.

It also features exposed ceiling beams and little extra touches that all go together to provide a memorable holiday.

The spacious open plan sleeping/living area is bright and airy thanks to a large picture window, while a super king-size bed and a cosy sitting area with a gas-fired stove provide a lovely, romantic space for unwinding.

The spacious kitchen/diner is connected through a large archway and leads to a lovely snug area, with ramped access and where large patio doors overlook the rear courtyard.

Stylish throughout, with every care being taken by the owners to provide a truly outstanding holiday home, there is also a fabulous wet room with a freestanding bath.

Outside, a spacious patio provides the backdrop for a luxurious hot tub, where guests can sit and enjoy a well-earned soak and reminisce about the day’s adventures.

The owners, who live just across the lane in the farmhouse, have a range of animals on the adjoining pasture land, including horses, pigs and Dexter cows.

There's also a chicken coop located by the holiday cottage, so that guests can help themselves to fresh eggs!

Pilling is a small village, with the odd shop and a pub, whilst there is an excellent selection of local markets, independent shops, traditional pubs and renowned restaurants all within a short drive.

The seaside resort of Blackpool is easy to reach, where you will find the Blackpool Tower, The Opera House and the world-famous Pleasure Beach and illuminations.

Visit Freeport Fleetwood, the outlet shopping village, as well as the more tranquil town of Lytham St Annes, home of the Royal Lytham golf course.

Within an hour’s drive to the north is the Lake District, where you can find many designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There is also the less well-known seaside resort of Morecambe and the historic university city of Lancaster.

About the location

PILLING

Blackpool 15 miles; Morecambe 15 miles; Lancaster 20 miles; Kendal 33 miles.

Pilling is a small, peaceful village within the borough of Wyre in Lancashire, only six miles northeast of Poulton-le-Fylde and three miles from Knott End-on-Sea. This ancient settlement was founded on what was essentially an island, with the sea on one side and marsh on the others. In 1808, Pilling Windmill was built, operating up until the 1940’s and restored to its former glory in 2007, and the local pottery offers a refurbished cafe and art gallery. In addition, Pilling has a country pub serving food and the Springfield House Hotel and Restaurant is close by. Nearby, Knott End-on-Sea has a range of shops and restaurants located across the Wyre Estuary from Fleetwood. Although there is a no through road and to get there you must pass through neighbouring Preesall, the village is in fact the main commercial centre for the Over Wyre area. As well as a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, Knott End-on-Sea has its own pub, The Bourne Arms, as well as a bank and an 18-hole golf course, which welcomes visitors. Buses run regularly from Knott End to Blackpool, Garstang and Lancaster, and there is also a seasonal, three-minute ferry crossing to Fleetwood. Just over six miles away, the historic market town of Poulton-le-Fylde is a charming place full of cobbled streets, unusual shops and ancient sights. Traditionally, agriculture was the main industry in the area and records show that a market has been held in Poulton-Le-Fylde since at least 1348. This tradition continues to this day, with a farmers' market held every fourth Saturday. The area has something to suit all tastes; there are country and beach walks suitable for all abilities, with Pilling and Morecambe Bay being very popular with birdwatchers. A visit to Old Holly Farm to feed the lambs in spring and the Braedens Pony Trekking Centre, both make a great family day out. The Trough of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is nearby, with walks to suit all abilities, while the many varied delights of Blackpool and Morecambe are easy to reach. Don’t forget to explore the towns of Lytham St Annes, Cleveleys, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Windermere, which together with the stunning Lake District National Park, make this a great holiday destination for everyone!
