The property

This charming, detached, all ground floor cottage is in the heart of the village of Pilling, opposite Pilling Pottery.

With its warm feeling and characterful pine interior, visitors can make the most of this comfortable accommodation.

Through the entrance there is a twin bedded room on your left and the family bathroom on your right.

Straight ahead is the double bedded room with a walk-in wardrobe/store.

The open plan living area is a delightful space to relax, boasting a leather sofa, perfect for a cosy night in, perhaps enjoying one of the selection of books or watching the television.

A dining table is by the window overlooking the garden.

The fitted kitchen has a patio door into the garden.

The village of Pilling has a country pub, 400yards, and the Springfield House Hotel and restaurant is close by.

The villages of Preesall and Knott End on Sea are 4 miles to the west and boast pubs, take-aways, and numerous places to eat as well as a good selection of shops such as co-ops, baker, chemist, greengrocer, etc.

Half a mile down Fluke Hall Lane, between the Golden Ball and the school, is the sea wall, on the south of Morecambe Bay, with views of the mountains from Black Combe above Barrow, the Langdales, Scafell Pike, Coniston Old Man, the Howgills, and to the east are the Hills of the Forest of Bowland.

Just over six miles away is the historic market town of Poulton-le-Fylde.

Pilling is within easy reach of the towns of Lytham St Annes, Blackpool, Cleveleys, Fleetwood, Kirkby Lonsdale, Lancaster, Kendal, and Garstang as well as the Lake District.

It is only about 40 minutes to Arnside or Silverdale and Kendal and Windermere are not far.

You can walk on the sea-wall from Pilling to Knott End.

The Forest of Bowland is an unspoilt area of outstanding countryside and a trip through the Trough of Bowland to the historic town of Clitheroe is highly recommended.

About the location

PILLING

Lancaster; Blackpool 15 miles; Morecambe 15 miles; Kendal 33 miles.

Pilling is a small, peaceful village within the borough of Wyre in Lancashire, only six miles northeast of Poulton-le-Fylde and three miles from Knott End-on-Sea. This ancient settlement was founded on what was essentially an island, with the sea on one side and marsh on the others. In 1808, Pilling Windmill was built, operating up until the 1940’s and restored to its former glory in 2007, and the local pottery offers a refurbished cafe and art gallery. In addition, Pilling has a country pub serving food and the Springfield House Hotel and Restaurant is close by. Nearby, Knott End-on-Sea has a range of shops and restaurants located across the Wyre Estuary from Fleetwood. Although there is a no through road and to get there you must pass through neighbouring Preesall, the village is in fact the main commercial centre for the Over Wyre area. As well as a variety of shops, restaurants and cafes, Knott End-on-Sea has its own pub, The Bourne Arms, as well as a bank and an 18-hole golf course, which welcomes visitors. Buses run regularly from Knott End to Blackpool, Garstang and Lancaster, and there is also a seasonal, three-minute ferry crossing to Fleetwood. Just over six miles away, the historic market town of Poulton-le-Fylde is a charming place full of cobbled streets, unusual shops and ancient sights. Traditionally, agriculture was the main industry in the area and records show that a market has been held in Poulton-Le-Fylde since at least 1348. This tradition continues to this day, with a farmers' market held every fourth Saturday. The area has something to suit all tastes; there are country and beach walks suitable for all abilities, with Pilling and Morecambe Bay being very popular with birdwatchers. A visit to Old Holly Farm to feed the lambs in spring and the Braedens Pony Trekking Centre, both make a great family day out. The Trough of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is nearby, with walks to suit all abilities, while the many varied delights of Blackpool and Morecambe are easy to reach. Don’t forget to explore the towns of Lytham St Annes, Cleveleys, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Windermere, which together with the stunning Lake District National Park, make this a great holiday destination for everyone!
