The property

This delightful bungalow rests in the heart of Thornton-Cleveleys, a conurbation merging the twin towns of Thornton and Cleveleys, a wonderful area with access to the seaside resort of Blackpool and Fleetwood, and the outstandingly beautiful Forest of Bowland.

This property offers a cosy welcome to its guests, take a moment to admire the pretty front garden on arrival, dotted with flourishing plants and a bench seat to sit out and enjoy the peace and serenity of the sleepy cul-de-sac.

The sitting room is brightly lit by the front-facing bay window and a neutral shade on the walls, complemented by luxurious furnishings and an electric fire bringing warmth to the room on those chilly winter evenings.

Adjacently you will find the neatly packed kitchen, featuring a wealth of modern appliances to assist your visit, dressed in a refreshing lemon shade; its vibrant colours will uplift a gloomy spell of weather outside.

Make the most of the sun room just off from here, doubling up as a dining room, it is the perfect place to eat your meals together.

Tucked away behind the Japanese themed garden at the rear of the property, providing privacy through the large panoramic windows, drawing in a plethora of natural light, this bright interior would delight any guest.

The bedrooms are spacious, boasting ample storage and elevating colour schemes, and lastly the shower room completes the cottage in a modern fashion.

Out in the village, there are many charming amenities to suit your tastes along with the pebbly beach and amusement arcade at Thornton-Cleveleys.

Those looking to get out and about on foot, bike, or on water the nearby River Wye offers yachting whilst further afield, the Forest of Bowland provides many pathways to suit different abilities with abounding countryside views to marvel at.

Just five miles from Blackpool, Poets Retreat is ideal for the Blackpool Illuminations early September to early November.

This lovely cottage will provide a memorable stay in a charming region of England.
