  • "Great location, beautiful well maintained house."

    Friendly hosts with a great local pub that serves fantastic food. Having an electric plug in car charger would have been beneficial for us, especially as we'd travelled a long distance and we used our car for daily outings during our weeks stay.

    Thank you Barry for your feedback. Glad you found the location ideal for your family days out. We may look to installing an electric car charger in the future, however our property description on the Sykes website clearly states that this is not currently available. With best wishes.

    Vine is a beautiful place to holiday at and John and Karen are excellent hosts. We hope to stay again soon. Paul, Gwen and Lulu the Boarder Terrier

    Paul and Gwen, we were absolutely delighted to welcome you back again, with the lovely Lulu. Thank you for choosing Vine Cottage once again. As always you leave the cottage impeccably clean and tidy. We hope we can see you again in the future. With very best wishes, Karen and John Property Owner

  • "This is a 5 star property with lovely comfortable furnishings."

    We travelled with our two adult daughters and there is enough room for everyone, with a small self contained annex section giving more privacy if needed. There were lots of small touches made by the hosts Karen & John, including a welcome hamper, fresh flowers, and a lovely welcome upon arrival. Nothing has been forgotten about, there are robes and plastic glasses for the huge hot tub and wood for the log burner. This is the best equipped home we've stayed at (and we've used Sykes and Airbnb extensively). Location wise you are in the countryside but close to towns for all the amenities needed. We had mixed weather - but the cottage is cosy and so comfortable. 100% would recommend and will be back!

    Thank you Caroline for this lovely review. We are pleased you found the cottage comfortable, relaxing and well equipped. Thank you for also being 5* guests! We would love to see you return again. With best wishes. Property Owner

    As they say the proof is in the pudding and this cottage certainly didn't disappoint. It has been lovingly and thoughtfully restored throughout with real attention paid to what guests might need during their stay. The property is spacious, in pristine condition and spotless throughout. The Cottage also has a fantastic hot tub that is maintained daily and is located in an outbuilding which has a window that looks over the countryside - very picturesque and just added to the chill time we were looking for. Superb log fire, which added to the whole cosiness of the property. Greeted by Karen and John, who gave us a really warm welcome and were on hand throughout the week should we need them and nothing was too much trouble - brilliant hosts. Fantastic welcome pack on arrival and flowers too; both of which were a real nice touch. Even the dog wasn't left out as there were treats for him too. We had a fantastic relaxing week at the Vine Cottage and hope to return again. If I could score the Cottage higher I would!

    Wow! Thank you Shane and Julie for such an amazing review! Thank you also for being 5* guests and leaving the cottage impeccably clean and tidy.

  • "We had the most wonderful stay at Vine Cottage."

    If I could sum it up, I'd say it's like a house hotel! All the luxury of a spotless and contemporary hotel with all the advantages of a cosy, homely house (not to mention the great garden and lavish hot tub!). It was easy to find coming down from Scotland and is ideally placed in an idyllic rural location but within easy reach of the M6. During our stay we took quite a few day trips into Blackpool, which was around a half hour drive away, and found some wee gems on the country lanes along the way! Hopping into the hot tub when the kids were finally in bed was just the best way to wind down after a busy day! And opening the bifold doors and letting the children come and go from the garden whilst being able to keep an eye on them was just fantastic too. It's genuinely the most beautiful place we've ever stayed, there are not enough superlatives to describe how much we loved it! Waking up to the beautiful greenery and the church bells in the morning is how everyone should start their day. It's clear that so much love has gone into the house, it is a true home from home and we were not short of any home comforts or essentials, in fact, we felt extremely well looked after and catered to, especially with the fab toiletry baskets and the beautiful welcome hamper. Host Karen couldn't do enough for us and was so friendly and helpful. We'll most definitely be back so it's not goodbye to Vine Cottage for us, just see you soon!

    Ah Rebecca, thank you so much for this fabulous review. We are so pleased that you loved your stay at Vine Cottage, and that it provided everything you needed and more.

The property

Resting in Lancashire’s rolling countryside in the heart of the village of Pilling, is the idyllic Vine Cottage.

Situated next to the stunning village church, this wonderful holiday home benefits from off-road parking for four cars, a beautiful rear garden with lawn, patio, furniture, under cover hot tub and four well-appointed bedrooms each fitted with Smart TVs; the perfect setting for families or friends looking to experience the wonders of both the coast and countryside in the North West.

Cross the threshold into your new home-from-home and head straight into the open-plan living space where you can rustle up tasty meals in the fully-equipped kitchen which can then be enjoyed, together, around the spacious dining table.

If the sun is shining, why not step outside to delight in an alfresco affair upon the patio furniture before indulging in a soothing soak in the bubbling undercover hot tub, ideal for watching the stars fill the sky whatever the weather!

Spend colder evenings snuggled up in front of the Smart TV and crackling woodburning stove in the sitting room before washing off the day’s adventures in either the ground-floor shower room or the bathroom.

Choose between four sumptuous bedrooms to catch up on some well-earned sleep, there is a super-king size (zip/link), a king size with en-suite shower room, a ground-floor king-size and a single. If you can tear yourself away from this stunning dwelling, head into Stake Pool where you can pick up all your self-catering essentials and enjoy a much-needed break from the kitchen with food and drink 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.

Drive a little further to visit the seaside town of Morecambe, enjoying the Lake District views whilst strolling the promenade.

Those seeking to experience more of the great outdoors can take a scenic drive to the Trough of Bowland a popular rambling and cycling location, or 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. The seaside resort of Blackpool is easy to reach, where you will find attractions such as Blackpool Tower, The Opera House and the world-famous Pleasure Beach and Illuminations. All this and more awaits at Vine Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.

About the location


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.
