Finished to a luxurious standard with a unique set-up, this bespoke property is accessed off a quiet village street and has an off road parking space for one car to the side of the property.

Just out the back of the property there is a small patio area with furniture which is an ideal sun spot during the summer months.

On the doorstep there is the famous Bluebell Wood walk where you can expect to observe a variety of birds from robins to swifts as you take a wander through nature.

Nearby is the town of Garstang which is known for its tasty home-grown produce and individual shops, where you can buy some treats particular to Lancashire!

Here you will find some shops and pubs and why not explore the town and watch the passing canal boats cruise along the peaceful Lancaster Canal.

Within reach is the historic city of Lancaster with much to see, including the Medieval castle and Georgian architecture, and the seaside resort of Morecambe, the Forest of Bowland and further afield the wonderful Lake District National Park are well worth a visit.

About the location

GARSTANG

Lancaster 11 miles; Morecambe 15 miles.

Garstang is a small town within the Wyre Borough of Lancashire, famous for declaring itself the world's first Fairtrade town. Known locally for its tasty home-grown produce, this small town offers a warm welcome and a wealth of specialist and individual shops where you can pick up a number of treats; don't miss the local cheesemongers for a wedge of fine Lancashire cheese! The street market is held every Thursday, another exciting shopping treat. Running right through the centre of the town is the peaceful Lancaster Canal, where you can watch the passing canal boats cruise by and enjoy the abundance of wildlife it supports. The nearby Millennium Green, an area situated on the western bank of the River Wyre, has actually been designated for wildlife conservation and events in the community. Admire the views over the Bowland Hills before enjoying a visit to the High Street, where you will find plenty of pubs, cafes and restaurants in which you can enjoy the local hospitality, or visit Old Holly Farm and the Braedens Pony Trekking Centre, which make for great family days out. The surrounding countryside provides great walking opportunities, whilst the RSPB nature reserves at Leighton Moss and Morecambe Bay are well worth a visit. The Trough of Bowland is nearby, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, while the many varied delights of Blackpool and Morecambe, as well as the towns of Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Windermere and the stunning Lake District National Park are all within easy reach, making this a great destination for all the family.
