  • "Wonderful place."

    The cottage was perfect, a lot of thought has gone into it to make you feel comfortable and at home. Lovely owner and not forgetting the 3 very friendly chickens. I wish we could have stayed longer and we hope to come back. It is in a beautiful setting and made us feel so relaxed.

  • "Beautifully appointed property, all the equipment you could possibly need."

    The Stables have been converted to a very high standard. Janet was very friendly and helpful and left some lovely treats to welcome us. The hens are lovely and didn't wake us up. Good cafe and pub/restaurant locally and well placed for visiting surrounding area. Only problem was that it was too warm to test the Morso stove, we'll need to go back in winter!

    Thank you. Yes the stove would make the room too hot in summer but in winter it is lovely.Please come back in winter ! Property Owner

  • "Stayed twice now at The Stables and enjoyed both visits, Janet couldn't be more helpful and we found The Stables comfortable and everything we needed for a relaxing stay."

    The chickens are a delight to watch and trying to capture a picture of the hare that visits is a challenge which we failed he's too quick for us.

  • "The cottage was absolutely divine."

    Janet has such wonderful tastes in everything that the cottage was equipped with . Towels were sumptuous - shower was superb. In fact everything was of the highest quality. Nothing was too much for Janet - There when you needed help and advice . The three resident chuckins - Hetty - Henrietta and " Boris" the bully were a delight - you need grapes and /or blueberries to keep them occupied !!! In all - a very delightful stay .

    Thank you for your lovely feedback. My chickens continue to rule the roost !! Property Owner

  • "A hidden gem of a property."

    My ideal place. No fuss but everything you need with exceptional quality, taste and attention to detail. Very high quality , immaculately maintained and modern. Peaceful and relaxing stay I have now added this to my favorites and will definitely be back. Hosts are wonderful and friendly and happy to help with anything you need yet very unobtrusive allowing you to enjoy your time there uninterrupted. I loved the little extras left to welcome us and the 3 resident hens visiting everyday for their blueberries which they loved. I would love to live out my days in something as beautiful as this's hoping. Good base for all surrounding excursions too. Southport, ormskirk (market on Sat) Preston, Blackpool to name a few. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute and an absolute bargain too. Overwhelmingly recommended !!

    Thank you Dawn your comments are very much appreciated. It would be lovely to see you again and I am sure those cheeky hens feel the same ! Property Owner

  • "This was a lovely small compact cottage."

    It had everything it needed in it. The bed was unbelievably comfortable as were the pillows. I really can't fault it at all. It was so nice to open the front door in the mornings to be greeted by the most gorgeous hens, only three. Was scared of them to start with but soon got used to them. Brilliant owners as well. Looking forward to returning next year. Thank you for such a lovely stay, Jenny

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Jenny and I look forward to welcoming you back next year. Property Owner

  • "Lovely clean cottage and the owner Janet was very welcoming and helpful."

    The cottage was in a peaceful setting and was immaculate, with everything we needed for our stay. The cooker was easy to use and everything was of a very good standard. There was also a large fridge and freezer. We catered for a whole week with no problems. There are nice walks from the cottage up the River Ribble and you could walk miles along the river. We also walked to to the local wildlife park Longton Brickcroft nature reserve, 5 mins by car.

    Thank you very much for your lovely comments it is good to hear that the kitchen is up to standard your feedback is really helpful. Also I am glad you enjoyed the location there are some lovely walks round here. Property Owner

    It was extremely well presented and very comfortable. There were a few things that went wrong but the owner was more than helpful in sorting them The wifi connection was very poor at times

The property

Overlooking rural countryside fields, is this charming stable from the early 1900s which was used mainly for working horses.

The Stables is perfect for a romantic retreat to the Lancashire coast, countryside and city life.

Be welcomed into the owner's property and admire the surrounding greenery and landscapes as you find the self-contained annexe, boasting a gravel driveway with parking.

Stepping through the single-storey dwelling, make yourself at home in the open-plan living space, rustling up a home-cooked meal for a date night in the amply-equipped kitchen, before joining together on the dining table over a bottle of wine.

Once dinner has been cleared away, kick back on the plush sofa in this rustic setting, letting the woodburning stove warm you up during a film night.

When sleep calls, head to the inviting double bedroom, decorated to a hotel-style standard and offering ample storage, served by a contemporary shower room which boasts a large walk-in shower and heated towel rail.

Make use of the quiet grounds on a summer's day and dine alfresco on the outdoor seating, accompanied by a refreshing beverage as you watch the sunset.

Explore the nearby village of Walmer Bridge and stock up on essentials at the nearby shop, before enjoying a spot of hearty grub in the local pub.

Venture over to the bustling seaside town of Southport, where you can stroll along the Victorian Pier and embark on a journey along the Southport Pier Tramway from the promenade, or discover local attractions such as Southport Pleasureland, The Atkinson theatre, Hesketh Park, and the incredible Southport Beach.

Alternatively, soak up the surroundings of Preston city centre and visit the Ribble Steam Railway and Museum, Harris Museum, Art Gallery & Library, and Avenham and Miller Park, or treat yourself to some retail therapy and gorgeous dining experiences.

If you're feeling adventurous, travel to Martin Mere Nature Reserve where you can roam around unspoilt landscapes and spot unique wildlife as you ramble around.

Further afield is the incredible seaside town of Blackpool for a traditional day of amusements and attractions, as well as renowned days out at Blackpool Pleasure Beach theme park, the SEA LIFE centre, and the striking Blackpool Tower.

Choose The Stables for your next romantic adventure.
