The property

Garstang 2.8 miles.

This delightful, mid-terrace cottage, 2 Morton Cottages, enjoys a rural setting in Winmarleigh near Garstang, Lancashire.

Boasting a charming interior that has been finished to a high standard, this charming abode makes for a lovely setting for a family of four's countryside break.

After leaving your vehicle in the handy off-road parking spot, take in the charming, red-brick exterior of the cottage and stretch out on the bench, before wandering inside to be welcomed by a fabulous open-plan living space.

The sitting area showcases a toasty woodburning stove that is set amongst exposed brickwork, where you can cosy up in front of the flames on the plush seating; switch on the TV to enjoy a movie night with your loved ones.

Close-by is the kitchen, a stylish spot that houses grey fittings topped with wooden worktops, handy storage for books, along with appliances that any budding chef would be pleased with.

When dinner has been rustled up, savour it at the dining table as you catch up with your group about your countryside ramblings.

As the day draws to a close, climb the stairs to find a spacious king-size bedroom, enjoying pastel touches, a large wardrobe, and views over the fields below, along with a twin room with tasteful, grey accents and savouring views out to the rear garden.

Finishing off the first floor is the brilliant shower room, a space boasting a spacious walk-in cubicle, so you can freshen up for the day in style.

The back courtyard is a delightful spot, where you can sip on a morning coffee as you read a captivating book; pass by the courtyard's shed to find a one-acre, rear garden, where you can soak up the sun's rays on the decking, as your furry friends play on the extensive lawn.

Travel a short distance south to Garstang, where you can find your amenities conveniently situated in one setting, including the highly rated restaurant, Pipers, ample shops, and the green spaces of Garstang Millennium Green and Hudson Park; the town also backs onto the River Wyre, so why not embark on a winding, afternoon stroll with your canine companions?

Within easy reach of the town are more outdoors spots, where the adventurers of the group can climb Beacon Fell, partake in a range of activities within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Beauty via the Waddecar Scout Activity Centre, and end the day with an idyllic picnic at the Brock Bottoms Picnic Site.

A day in the city awaits at Lancaster, where you can tour the renowned Lancaster Castle, wander around the stunning Williamson Park and Fairfield Nature Rerserve, or travel a little further afield to Morecambe to find coastal amusements along the Morecambe Promenade.

The National Parks of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales a north of the property and provide you with ample excursions to partake in, or venture west to Blackpool for more seaside fun.

A perfect break any time of year, choose 2 Morton Cottages.

About the location

GARSTANG

Lancaster 11 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.
