The property

Tucked away on a sleepy lane within the picturesque setting of Churchtown, is the large and attractive dwelling of Serengeti.

Styled with bright, tropical interiors throughout, this lovely self-catering holiday home is ideal for a family or group of eight travelling to the heart of Lancashire.

As you enter into the warm and welcoming embrace of this homely cottage, discover a peaceful sitting room with two striking fabric sofas and a sleek wall-mounted TV that rests perfectly above the contemporary gas fire, offering a wonderful space from which to enjoy a relaxing evening with loved ones.

Head on back to the spacious kitchen/diner, appointed with beautiful oak cabinets and a sea of well-designed appliances - sure to inspire some thoughtful home-cooking throughout your stay.

The room also features a large country-style dining table, where you can delight in many of your meals as you catch up with friends over a perfectly chilled bottle of bubbly.

Continue the evening out in the garden with a post-dinner digestif at the outdoor seating area, or take to the games room with a friendly game of pool or darts.

Completing the ground floor are two well-appointed bedrooms made up of a double and a twin, each of which can be found hosting ample storage space for all of your belongings, as well as being served by a handy ground-floor wet room, making this an ideal space for guests travelling with limited mobility.

Up on the first floor, you will find two additional double bedrooms, and a bright and airy bathroom with quirky wall-paper, a gorgeous free-standing bath and separate walk-in shower.

Hosting the perfect blend of coast and countryside with both Blackpool and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural beauty just a stone's throw away, be sure to spend your days exploring the area with hikes through the magnificent Beacon Fells.

Visit the city of Preston for a tour of the Ribble Steam Railway and Museum, or venture up to Lancaster to see the Queen Victoria Memorial, or wander the grounds of Williamson Park.

No trip to Lancashire is complete without a trip to Blackpool, home to the iconic Blackpool Tower and Ballroom and the thrilling theme park of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, or wander along the colourful South Pier as you tuck into a delicious portion of fish and chips, or spot exotic fish at the popular SEA LIFE Blackpool.

Live memorable moments with your loved ones on a holiday like no other at Serengeti.

About the location


Preston 9.9 miles; Chipping 11.4 miles; Lancaster 12.2; Blackpool 12.6 miles; Morecambe 19.1 miles

Peacefully positioned on the banks of the River Wyre, on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Garstang, you will find the quaint and charming community of Churchtown, formally known as Kirkland. Set in the heart of Lancashire, just a stone's throw away from the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is so much for you to enjoy whatever type of self-catering stay it is that you seek. The village itself is home to a bustling country pub serving up delicious hot meals, and an M & S Simply Food store to enjoy. Embrace the great outdoors with days spent wandering through the Beacon Fell country park before delighting in a lovingly prepared lunch in the picnic area, or pushing yourself to the limits with an exhilarating hike to the Peak of Fair Snape Fell or Parlick. Spot mesmerising wildlife at the Bowland Wild Boar Park or hop in the car and head for Blackpool where you can see all of the iconic landmarks and attractions such as the Blackpool Tower, Pleasure Beach theme park and the vibrant South Pier. Soak up the sunshine on the wonderful beaches that line the shores of the Irish Sea such as Lytham-St-Annes and Cleveleys, or travel into the city of Preston for tours of the Ribble Steam Railway and Museum, and Preston Windmill. An excellent backdrop for any holiday to the Lancashire countryside.
