    The cottage was placed in a beautiful location, with views over Morecambe Bay right round to Blackpool on a clear day/night. Watching the fireworks across the bay at midnight on New Years Eve was spectacular! Inside the cottage, everything had been taken care of, it is done up to a very high standard and it definitely has that home from home feel, you don’t want for anything whilst there! We had such a brilliant time, enjoying bringing in the new year in such a wonderful place. The only thing that we found fault with was the parking, we took 3 cars up as there were 3 separate couples and all cars were large, thus finding it difficult to manoeuvre onto the driveway as it is very narrow! As a previous reviewer has said, it would be a useful addition to have somewhere to turn around so that you don’t have to reverse out into the road as it is a blind opening out onto it?! Despite this, the cottage is absolutely wonderful and we will no doubt be visiting again! Thank you.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Grange-over-Sands 3 miles.

A superb base to explore this interesting and beautiful area, the historic village of Flookburgh is set near the shores of Morecambe Bay on the outskirts of the magnificent Lake District. It is thought that the locally-caught Fluke fish take their name after the village, and once, Flookburgh was a popular resting point for travellers crossing the sands from Lancaster and still provides a home for cockle and shrimp fishers. Facilities in the village include two pubs, a grocery, a chemist, a Post Office and two food outlets. The Cumbrian Coastal Way footpath passes nearby and a short walk away from the village is delightful countryside, such as Humphrey Head, views of the bay, with its wading bird life, and Coniston's mountain range. A few minutes’ drive or a pleasant off road walk leads to historic Cartmel, with its beautiful Priory, popular race course, antique and gift shops, pubs and restaurants; including the Michelin Star-rated L’Enclume. Just over a mile away you will find the beautiful house and gardens of Holker Hall and also nearby you can try horse riding just six miles to the north at Bigland, or visit the Edwardian resort of Grange, which offers a range of hotels, restaurants, shops, a traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens and golf courses.
