  • "The owners of Old Bell Works really went above and beyond to provide everything we could possibly need, in one of the most gorgeous and well equipped places we've ever seen."

    This cottage oozes with love and attention to detail, down to the little felt mice that are placed around various nooks and crannies for you to find while exploring the decor. Not a single thing was out of place or anything other than immaculate. The hot tub was hot and ready to jump in as soon as we arrived which we absolutely did, and didn't miss a single day without spending some time in it. Paula & Brian have done an amazing job and completely allowed us our privacy, just checking in via message to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks you both for the great trip, and we would love to return again in the future!

    This is lovely feedback to read Maria & Phil; thank you so much! We’re so glad you enjoyed your time at Old Bell! You were A* guests and we would welcome you back time and again! Love Paula, Brian, James, Tom & Will Xxx Property Owner

The kitchen was well-equipped, allowing for easy meal preparation, and the comfortable bedding provided a restful night's sleep. The cleanliness and maintenance of the cottage were impeccable, adding to the overall positive impression. The hot tub was large, hot and very welcoming. The location is also worth noting, offering a serene and picturesque setting. It provided a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life, making it an ideal retreat for relaxation. Moreover, the hospitality extended by our hosts was exceptional. They were attentive, friendly, and went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was enjoyable.

    . and i was not disappointed… on arrival we had a lit log burner going cosy lights the cottage was warm and welcoming after a 12 hour drive. Fresh milk and juice and a whole hamper full of goodies to get us through breakfast was a doddle. The cottage its self was outstandingly beautiful immaculately clean and to say it was comfortable was an understatement.. with added perks a wonderful garden beautifully lit up at night and an amazing hot tub. The owners them selfs went above and beyond to ensure we had all we needed for our stay plenty of information on things to do around the area.. we took full advantage of the cottage and stayed in a couple of days it was just perfect i can not wait to re book i would 1000% recomend this little gem to any one. My party consisted of a wheelchair user a 6 month old baby teenagers and young adults and of course im about middle age (

    Has everything you will need and more. The garden is huge and fully enclosed which is perfect for dogs. There are also multiple seating areas in the garden to accommodate meals, chilling in the hot tub, or sitting under the tree at the bottom. Owners are wonderful as they are next door so if there is anything you need, they are there very quickly. The interior design is really good and throughout your stay you will keep seeing little touches that will make you smile. Log fire was toasty and you can buy extra wood too from the owners who will bring it to your door. On arrival you get a welcome hamper that is one of the most thoughtful and impressive ones that I have ever seen. All in all this property is 10 out of 10 and I can highly recommend.

  • "The cottage is perfect in every way, beautiful and comfortable."

    In fact the nicest cottage we have ever stopped in over many years. Ideal for a lovely holiday. The owners were accessible and helpful and friendly. There was only one downside for us. The hot tub wasn't available immediately and the temperature was set too low. It was set at 36 and rarely got above 35. The hot tub is the most important part of our holiday to relax, as we have very physical jobs. and we like to enjoy it at least once daily.

    Thank you for your lovely comment Julie. Unfortunately, because the hot tub has to be changed after each guest, it can only reach temperature by early the following morning. The temperature is set at a recommended 37 degrees and reaches this every time. Although, when being used over the recommended 15-30 minutes and the lid open, will inevitably drop slightly, which is out of our hands. It is a quality hot tub, so soon gets back up to temperature. Glad you loved the cottage :) Property Owner

This fabulous, detached holiday home benefits from off-road parking, a spacious rear lawn with hot tub and a stylish, contemporary interior melded with characterful features such as exposed stone walls, flagged flooring, and exposed beams welcoming six guests for a countryside retreat.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and unwind on the plush corner sofa while the designated chef gets acquainted with the fully-equipped kitchen and the woodburning stove crackles soothingly.

Enjoy a delicious meal at the dining table or step outside to the covered patio to delight in an alfresco affair upon the garden furniture.

Indulge in a soothing soak under the stars in the hot tub before stepping inside to wash away the day’s adventures in shower room.

When sleep calls, choose from three beautifully-presented bedrooms; the ground floor houses a super king-size with zip and link and the first floor has two more with handy en-suite shower rooms.

When you’re ready to explore head into the hamlet of Stake Pool to stock up on necessities at the local store, have evening drinks at the Elletson Arms or travel to Knott End-on-Sea to test your swing at the golf club which lies alongside the River Wyre before celebrating your wins at The Bourne Arms.

Take a day trip to the city of Lancaster to marvel at its medieval castle, the impressive cathedral with stunning architecture or tour Lancaster City Museum and Lancaster Maritime Museum.

The city is home to Williamson Park, a vast area filled with woodland, play areas, butterfly house and nature reserve.

Those seeking to experience more of the great outdoors can take a scenic drive to the Lake District National Park to visit idyllic lake towns like Windermere and Ambleside famous for their watersports and the walks and trails surrounding them.

If you’re feeling brave, why not scale Scafell Peak or head to the Yorkshire Dales National Park to follow the route of the three peaks challenge.

About the location

PILLING

Lancaster; Blackpool 15 miles; Morecambe 15 miles; Kendal 33 miles.

Pilling is a small, peaceful village within the borough of Wyre in Lancashire, only six miles northeast of Poulton-le-Fylde and three miles from Knott End-on-Sea. This ancient settlement was founded on what was essentially an island, with the sea on one side and marsh on the others. In 1808, Pilling Windmill was built, operating up until the 1940’s and restored to its former glory in 2007. In addition, Pilling has a country pub serving food and drinks, as well as takeaway facilities. Nearby, Knott End-on-Sea has a range of shops and restaurants located across the Wyre Estuary from Fleetwood. As well as a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, Knott End-on-Sea has its own pub, The Bourne Arms, and an 18-hole golf course, which welcomes visitors. Buses run regularly from Knott End to Blackpool, and Lancaster, and there is also a seasonal, three-minute ferry crossing to Fleetwood. Just over six miles away, the historic market town of Poulton-le-Fylde is a charming place full of cobbled streets, unusual shops and ancient sights. Traditionally, agriculture was the main industry in the area and records show that a market has been held in Poulton-Le-Fylde since at least 1348. This tradition continues to this day, with a farmers' market held every fourth Saturday. The area has something to suit all tastes; there are country and beach walks suitable for all abilities, with Pilling and Morecambe Bay being very popular with birdwatchers. The Trough of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is nearby, with walks to suit all abilities, while the many varied delights of Blackpool and Morecambe are easy to reach. Don’t forget to explore the towns of Lytham St Annes, Cleveleys, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Windermere, which together with the stunning Lake District National Park, make this a great holiday destination for everyone!
