    Not too far from Preston and do-able drive to The Lake District and Manchester. The decor inside the property was stunning and spic and span throughout! Owners were very friendly and helpful. The whole week was heavenly and we really didn't want to go home. Would love to come again!

  • "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

  • "Great little cottage, had everything we needed really."

    Janet and her husband who live opposite are lovely people. Nice modern and quirky furnishings. Location was good for us as we wanted to visit Lake District for couple of days which is around 90 minutes drive and cities of Blackpool (30 minutes drive) and Liverpool is nearby too.

    Thank you very much for your kind words it is very much appreciated. Janet Property Owner

  • "We were the very first booking for this property and to be honest it was very nearly perfect."

    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

    Thank you Graham . As the summer has gone on I have been very busy with the holiday let and the internet works well now. You have always got to be attentive to detail though, thankfully all the issues are now resolved .It was good to have you and Sian as my first guests. Thank you Janet Property Owner

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.
