Scorton 2.1 miles.
This idyllic lodge for two is set beside a babbling brook, amongst wooded fields at the bottom of a farm lane near Scorton, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland AONB.
Away from the road, in a private clearing overlooking fields and trees, this romantic retreat is the perfect holiday spot for couples visiting the North West of England.
Tucked away from the main road, with no other properties in sight, the chalet is accessed by a wooden bridge onto a decked veranda that wraps around the front of the property.
Here, you can sit outside and dine alfresco, then relax with a glass of wine in the hot tub!
Inside, there is a cosy, compact kitchen, a sitting area with a woodburning stove, and patio doors opening onto the decking.
There is also a modern shower room and a pretty bedroom with lovely views of the brook and fields beyond.
Across the fields, you can easily walk to Scorton and enjoy a tasty bite to eat in one of its excellent licensed restaurants.
Park Brook Retreat is perched on the edge of an Area of Natural Beauty, so there are plenty of wonderful opportunities for walking and cycling through this picturesque area.
If you fancy a challenge, make your way to the top of Nicky Nook behind the village.
When you reach the top, you can see to Morecambe Bay, Blackpool and the Lake District.
On a clear day, you can even make out the faint outline of the Isle of Man!
Another great place to visit is Wyresdale Park, a beautiful country house estate that often hosts covered markets, but also offers walking and fishing.
A wonderful holiday home, with lots to see and do nearby.
About the location
Garstang 3.6 miles; Lancaster 8.5 miles; Morecambe 15 miles.
Scorton is a village in Nether Wyresdale, on the very edge of the Forest of Bowland AONB. Although it was originally developed around the cotton mill and railway in the 19th Century, today it is most popular with walkers and cyclists seeking refreshment in one of its licensed restaurants. The village also hosts regular Food & Gift Fairs, where you can browse a delightful selection of stalls selling cheese, preserves, jewellery and crafts, to name but a few. Nicky Nook, its best known landmark, sits at the back of the village and, as it is only a short distance from the A6, the village is a wonderful starting point for exploring Lancashire. There are fishing opportunities nearby on the River Wyre, Wyreside Lake and Cleveley Mere. A few miles up the road is Garstang, famous for declaring itself as the world’s first Fairtrade town and well-loved for its delicious local produce and regular street markets. There is so much to keep you occupied in this area; the beautiful Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve, a day at Morecambe Bay or Blackpool, along with the popular towns of Lancaster, Kirkby Lonsdale and even Kendal and Windermere, easily reached in the car. With beautiful surroundings and an abundance of natural attractions, it is great for families, couples and friends.
