  • "FOREVASINGLEMAN stayed here in this Garstang self catering property over the 2023 into 2024 Christmas and New Year festive season period from Friday 22 December 2023 to Saturday 6 January 2024 all by my happy oneself and generally i did enjoy it."

    A welcome pack of two small bottles of wine, one white, one red, one pack of Fox's chocolate biscuit cookies, one large bag of crisps, and one 1 litre carton of Sainsbury's semi-skimmed milk awaited me internally. The property is overall very good, big smart digital colour TV, double bed, shower, etc, including the gas powered hot water and central heating. One slight disadvantage was the wi-fi, broadband, internet connection which on some occasions, either cut off completely, or/ and was slow occasionally too, having to reboot the wi-fi hub (Post Office type hub) but apart from this a wonderful holiday i had all on my happy own, and being a very happy forever single man myself, no brain damage whatsoever from no nagging partner, especially over the festive season. I recommend this property, and yes if this holiday let still continues as an establishment as such, i will definitely holiday here at this establishment once again in the near future, if another opportunity arises again all by myself always. Then again Garstang is a very nice small town, and there is always one possibility i may one day not holiday here (in Garstang) any more, and instead i may even consider a future relocation to Garstang permanently (?), which for me is more of a permanent holiday than just a temporary holiday. Many thanks to the property proprietor Keith for this holiday let. From a happy oneself holiday maker Mark Fletcher AKA FOREVASINGLEMAN.

  • "We had a perfect week in your lovely clean bungalow."

    Thank you for the biscuits crisps and wine and realy apreciated the tea coffee sugar and milk that was provided. Garstang high street is a few hundred yards away but the bungalow was in a quiet cul de sac. Very dog friendly centre with lots of independant shops and 3 supermarkets within 5 minutes walk. Lovely walks with our dog by the river and the canal. We had days out in the car but there is a bus stop within a minutes walk. Parking was easy and all in all i have no complaints

  • "A lovely little bungalow for 1 or 2 people."

    Clean and tidy throughout with good information from the owners and everything you need for your stay. Lovely welcome pack and, if you bring your dog and forgot towels or bowls, there are some available to use. The location is great too, with excellent walks from the door and the town centre shops and restaurants close by, plus the beautiful Trough of Bowland and Wyre Coast an easy drive away. I had to work a couple of days while I stayed here and it was also perfect for that. The only potential issue is if you have a large car as parking can be a bit tight, particularly at the weekend. That wouldn't stop me recommending it though

  • "Very enjoyable stay here."

    Kitchen very well equipped, great hot shower, relaxing settees. Nicely decorated, and lovely bedding and towels. I appreciated the lovely treats on arrival, the doggie towels and throws, large tv with apps eg Netflix, Blackpool jigsaw (I’m from there originally!), books and games, 2 minute walk to the river and to the High Street for shops and supermarkets. Thorough info pack too. Excellent base for exploring Trough of Bowland and the Lancashire fells. Plenty of good walks along the river and canal from the bungalow. Market day on Thursdays. Lots of places to visit from Garstang. Only downside was the very intermittent WiFi , despite rebooting many times. Kept losing signal so not good if you were wanting to work whilst there or watch the TV apps say, but probably the Garstang area reception and not the router. However, I would highly recommend staying here. It is a lovely bungalow and I really enjoyed my stay. The weather was excellent too! Thank you

Renovated to a high standard, this property has a bright and airy decor with contemporary furnishings making this a wonderful place to return to each evening.

Enter into an open-plan living space, complete with a dining table for two where you can gather with your partner and indulge in a delicious meal and toast to a wonderful holiday break with a glass of champagne in hand.

Escape reality by indulging in an evening of your favourite shows or a romantic movie and break open the popcorn for that added cinema effect as you cosy up on the leather sofa.

A ground-floor double bedroom is wonderfully appointed to the front of the property and gives some excellent views across Garstang to wake up to each morning.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings by exploring the delightful 14th century market town of Garstang which is steeped in history.

An evening meal can be enjoyed at the traditional pubs or historic inns within walking distance of your property.

Take a visit to Barton Grange Garden Centre and Flower Bowl which offers curling, 3 cinemas, ten pin bowling, crazy golf and golf simulators as well as plenty of opportunities for dining.

This town is often considered the starting point for a diverse range of walking opportunities which venture alongside the Lancaster Canal and its picturesque sites.

For more well-known walking routes, visit The Wyre Way and travel into the centre of the Forest of Bowland AONB, or walk in the opposite direction and find yourself at Morecombe Bay if you're looking for a day at the beach.

Further afield is the historic city of Lancaster where you can uncover a wide range of stories and tales of its local heritage, particularly at sites such as the imposing 12th century Lancaster Cathedral, Lancaster City Museum and even the Lancaster Priory Church.

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 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.
