  • "We had a lovely peaceful week in The Stables."

    Set in a quiet rural setting The Stables is perfectly placed for visiting many places such as Lytham and Southport. We had a warm welcome by Janet and received a nice welcome pack. Despite the cold weather we were warm inside thanks to the central heating, and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well equipped; a comfortable lounge area with Freeview TV; decent WiFi; great shower. Everywhere was immaculately clean. Great to see some chickens and cockerel roaming around, coming to say hello from time to time. We would definitely stay again here when we come back to the area, and highly recommend it.

    Thank you Stuart and Kim for your feedback, I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and the facilities in The Stables.I am also pleased to hear that finally the WiFi is reliable ! The Chickens never miss an opportunity to say hello. Property Owner

  • "The owner, Janet was very friendly and accommodating on our arrival."

    We explained we were between moving houses and had quite a few bags in our car. To save cluttering our space with our extra belongings, Janet kindly provided some storage space elsewhere during our stay, this was great as we didn’t have to worry about keeping it in the car either! The accommodation was completely spotless and the kitchen had everything you could need. So much information listed in the information pack provided. The area itself was very quiet and peaceful (day and night) resulting in some great nights sleep. The owners were only a knock (or text!) away if we ever needed anything. The chickens were an enjoyable bonus to simply watch wandering around the garden or sat waiting to greet you by the doorstep. It was also nice to have the unexpected welcome pack with some delicious goodies on arrival too! Thanks again for a great stay

  • "We enjoyed our two weeks at the Stables very much."

    The owners, Janet and David are very friendly and accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. Always on hand if you need them, but still respecting our privacy during our stay. Cottage is very clean, well equipped and in such a lovely rural location. Great for local walking, especially to the village of Longton, which has great pubs and restaurants, aswell as a Booths supermarket. The Golden Ball in the village does an excellent Sunday lunch. Cottage is in a great location for both Lytham, Southport and easy access to Preston town centre. All in all would definitely recommend a stay here, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you again for a great stay. Ian & Nina.

  • "Me and my husband stayed here for over 3 weeks recently and we had a lovely time."

    Janet the owner was so friendly and super accommodating throughout sending fresh bedding, towels and anything we needed actually. The cottage is very cosy, situated in the most beautiful surroundings and well equipped with high quality furnishings. Our only small issues (for us) we’re due to our staying longer than average, the sofa didn’t do much to support us. It was hard and really lacked comfort when trying to relax and watch a film. Also the bed is only a double, so sharing that with a man who is 6”1 was a real challenge. We struggled to sleep some nights because there just wasn’t space. That being said we are used to king sized and the bed was super comfy with the begging being high quality. Would be fine for a weekend. Lastly for those who need internet, we did have to buy a dongle because WiFi connection was bad, again that was only because my husband had to work from home, normally its not a problem and Janet did try her best to fix it. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend.

    Thank you Caroline for your feedback. I take on board all the constructive comments made. This was my first booking lasting more than 10 days. I constantly look to improve my holiday let so this is a helpful review, Property Owner

    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 ...here'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 !!

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.
