  • "The Hen House was perfect."

    Very homely, comfortable and welcoming. Local to Cleveleys but in a quiet location and lovely outlook. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed for those wishing to cook. A nice surprise was the plant nursery attached as we were able to take some beautiful hanging baskets home too! Looking forward to our next visit. Helen & Steve

    Would be better if on your instructions to the cottages you would put the address as bramble holiday cottages then it would be easy to find otherwise fab hosts and very clean and great for our dog

  • "Overall stay was great, accommodation wasn’t what expected as the cottages are much smaller."

    The man was really helpful and lovely, however the woman wasn’t very professional and didn’t have a great attitude towards us. The problem we had then got resolved. The pictures online are very misleading but come to an agreement we had an extra cottage to make up for the inconvenience.

    When the sun came out we were very comfortable in the garden with garden chairs and peaceful surrounding. just a quick suggestion you may benefit from reducing number of furniture in the lounge.

  • "This holiday let was as described, comfortable and clean."

    Beds and bedroom of a good size . Fine for a mature family but not so good for a young family with young children. Ideally located for visits to Blackpool-bucket and spade holiday , as well a local town and beach.Busy roads in and out of the area. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners, very pleasant people who went out of their way to give you a great holiday.

  • "Hen house was perfect for our trip."

    The house was spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and had everything we needed. They have really thought about everything and the little details, like games and washing up liquid, made our stay easy and enjoyable. We used it over a few stormy, wet days so it was great to return to a warm and comfortable ‘home from home’ after our trips out. It has a good outside space, which was perfect for our dog and ample parking too. Annette and Ray were helpful, friendly and easy to contact. We would definitely recommend!

    As soon as we arrived they greeted us offered MILK for tea and gave us information of the local area and sights. The Hen House was comfy and had everything you could need the owner had an issue with the washing machine in our cottage but gave us a key to the other cottage to use this one and even offered for us to use her own. A wonderful holiday and a wonderful setting with helpful owners and a great patio to enjoy the weather.
