  • "Myrtle Cottage is nicely placed just outside of the town centre, but with easy access on foot to all of the facilities."

    Arguably the best pub in the Town in less than a minute’s walk away and there are (if I recall correctly) six others to choose from. For those who like their food, there are two butcher’s shops, a cheesemonger and two supermarkets within a five-minute walk as well a selection eating-out opportunities. There is easy access to the M6 making the Cottage convenient for lots of places to visit. The Cottage itself is not enormous, but certainly not pokey either. The finish is to a high standard, the kitchen is well stocked with utensils and the courtyard garden is a lovely, useable outdoor space. The listing states three guests and two double bedrooms, which is a little confused. The Cottage would definitely sleep two couples, though visitors should ensure that they’re happy with the eating arrangements, which are clearly shown on the photographs. This property suited me perfectly and I’ll definitely be looking to book again soon.

    Thank you for the lovely feedback. We definitely look forward to your next visit and are glad that you enjoyed Garstang as much as we do! Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful stay at the cottage."

    There was everything in the cottage to make you feel at home. The cottage is positioned in Garstang and easily reached for shops and eateries. For new stayers we would recommend The Owd Tithebarn which about 2/3 minutes walk from the property. The market is every Thursday which is recommendable. Hope any new people staying at the cottage have a enjoyable time as we did. Shirley & Derrick Parkinson

The property

Resting near the Forest of Bowland AONB in the quaint town of Garstang, Lancashire is Myrtle Cottage, a delightful, two-bedroom dwelling.

Just paces away from a host of local amenities and the canal of River Wyre, whilst enjoying a homely interior and an enclosed courtyard, Myrtle Cottage offers the ideal base for a countryside escape for four guests.

Park up on the roadside before entering the sitting room, complete with plush seating, a log effect electric fire, and a TV, providing the perfect space for a relaxing evening in.

Head into the kitchen/diner to fulfil your self-catering needs, complete with a breakfast bar, electric oven, and a convenient washer/dryer, or if you'd prefer to dine alfresco, locate the enclosed rear courtyard, dotted with pretty blooms.

Return indoors to complete your nightly routine in the sleek shower room, before resting your eyes in either of the double bedrooms, both featuring ample storage and inviting furnishings.

Awaken to a host of attractions, located across the county, starting with a hike across Fleetwood Marsh Nature Reserve, travel to the coast for a day at Fleetwood Beach, or head to the Farmer Parrs Animal World, recommended for animal lovers.

Reaching the city centre, be welcomed by an abundance of culture and art, where you can tour the Lancaster City Museum, visit the Lancaster Maritime Museum, or attend one of the many events held at the Lancaster Grand Theatre.

Preston is also reachable by car, where you can explore Brockholes Nature Reserve, featuring a floating visitor village, a sweeping woodland, and wetland, home to rare and diverse species, before also visiting the Owl & Bird of Prey Sanctuary, all before returning to your abode for a relaxing night in.

Experience all of this by booking Myrtle Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Preston 10 miles; Lancaster 11 miles; Blackpool 15 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 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.
