  • "Absolutely loved the Goose Shed."

    It was perfect for us and our dog. The owners have good attention to detail, everything we needed was there. Beautifully clean in a lovely location with a well stocked Nursery on site what more could you want. Looking forward to returning.

  • "We would not have booked this property had we have known it is sited on a garden centre ."

    when the garden centre was open from 10 am till4pm the parking area for the goose shed was used by the customers of the gardencentre , they would park their cars in front of us & gaze through the windows of the properties , consequently there was a total lack of privacy .i thinkk it should be mentioned it is a gardencentre , we will not be going back . regards alan &joyce campbell

  • "Would not stay here again, we booked for a week but left after 3 day’s, parking is terrible as it wasn’t advertised as being right next to s plant nursery, and customers would wander past the cottages and stare in, the photos looked unlike the accommodation, the photos showed a corner suite but in reality it was a worn uncomfortable two seater sofa."

    Oven smoked and set off the smoke alarm. Crockery was dirty, and the toilet leaked. The bed was comfortable. Overall a misleading description. We are glad that we received a partial refund.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Goose Shed."

    It is a little gem, so close to the coast but so quiet and i loved seeing the sheep in the field as I looked out of the bedroom window. The owners are so helpful and friendly. I recommend all of The Brambles cottages.

    The cottage could really do with WiFi everything is online now for booking and finding out what's around the area, I think the owners miss an opportunity to push the high level golf courses in the area, a little more information on the area would be an advantage, owners are very friendly and welcoming had a fantastic stay with friends next door to us

  • "We booked our stay at Goose Shed not for a holiday but unfortunately to attend a family funeral and, visit another family member in Hospital."

    Our hosts were very pleasant people and very accommodating. My wife is not very stable on her feet at times and they provided a wooden constructed ramp to assist her up and over the step. The accommodation was very clean and well looked after. We will return to the Goose Shed again hopefully next time for holiday and pleasure purposes.

    Everything was as described on the website. Hosts were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. You could not ask for any more. Definitely a ‘home away from home’ - highly recommended.

    Ideal for a couple who wish to explore The Fylde area as Fleetwood, Thornton-Cleveleys and Blackpool are all within a couple of miles, and Lytham St Anne’s just a little further. We had a lovely week and certainly hope to return soon.
