    It was bright airy and charming. There was everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. On arrival the owners had left us fresh eggs and cookies. We would highly recommend this little gem... hopefully we'll be back

  • "Lovely cottage, I was worried that we would be woken by farm machinery at early hours but no noise at all."

    a couple of things missing but as soon as I mentioned them the owner brought them to us. Lovely couple who owned the cottage and made sure we had everything we needed. It's a great base to see the are from and Crosby and Formby beach are great. Would stay again.

  • "Wow what a fabulous cottage in a beautiful location!"

    So impressed as soon as we opened the door. This cottage had everything you would want for a self catering holiday plus a lovely welcome treat of fresh eggs from the farm chickens, biscuits, tea, coffee & hot chocolate. I spent many a relaxing hour reading in the garden whilst my husband enjoyed the superb fishing facilities. Perfectly situated for visits to local Pubs, Farm Shop, Spar, Cedar Farm Gallery, St Mary’s Marina & seaside towns like Southport, Lytham & Blackpool. Ormskirk town is a lovely place to visit on market days too. Please visit Maltkiln Cottage you won’t be disappointed!!

  • "An extremely comfortable and warm cottage, set in a wonderful country location."

    The cottage is set in a private location although close to owners residence, with chickens regularly visiting the patio garden. A good location for the local train station with regular trains to Liverpool and other locations.

  • "This is a lovely cottage, great for a relaxing, get away from it all experience."

    I would say a car is a necessity for getting around and if you like nature reserves there are at least 2 fairly nearby. Formby Point is good for a day out by the seaside and good for spotting red squirrels. My husband certainly enjoyed the fishing and we hope to return in the future.

    Local pub and farm shop very good. We really enjoyed staying here on a extended visit to our family. The great grand children visited and loved the duck (Cwack Cwacks) and chickens (Chuck Chuks) . We would recommend this property for a couple who want somewhere comfy and convenient to stay. Well Done Gail & Cliff

The property

An outstanding detached, brick-built, former farm building on a working farm on the edge of the pretty village of Bispham Green, ten miles from Southport.

Voted the Best Self Catering Holiday Provider 2014, at the Visit Lancashire awards, this cosy cottage has been thoughtfully converted to provide superb facilities over one floor, yet it still retains the immense character and charm of the original dwelling.

Modern styling and elegant furnishings are evident throughout the accommodation in this Lancashire cottage, which features a spacious living room with crook beams and exposed brickwork, a stylish kitchen, a lovely bedroom with en-suite bathroom, and a delightful private garden.

The owners have private freshwater ponds, where free fishing is available.

Nearby there are many interesting things to do and see including the Cedar Farm Galleries, Rufford Old Hall and Formby Point, which boasts a large area of beach, sand dunes and pine woods, which are still home to the red squirrel.

This Lancashire cottage makes a great touring base, with the Lake District, the western Dales and the Trough of Bowland just an hour’s drive.

A fabulous Lancashire cottage, and a perfect romantic retreat whatever the time of year.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref 12303 to accommodate 6 people.
