Beautiful barn conversion offering stylish accommodation for eight guests, finished to a high standard throughout to provide a chic holiday retreat set in wonderful farmland.

Reunite with family or whisk a group of friends away to this stunning farmhouse for a getaway to remember. Fantastically tucked away near the edge of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this region is dotted with fells, valleys and medieval spots which will keep you busy during the day. 19 miles from the vibrant resort of Blackpool, days at the beach and lively nights out are perfect if you are holidaying with both family and friends. Sleeping eight guests over four king-size rooms, bring two of your four-legged pals along to join in the fun. Welcoming you back from adventures, the open-plan living space is great for sociable moments and the outside space is perfect for mild evenings and letting dogs chase their tails.

First things first, step inside the kitchen/lounge/diner and admire the gorgeous vista providing you with a warm welcome and a taste of the exploring to be done. This fabulous open-plan space caters brilliantly for lively times catching up and laughing with friends and family, with all the room you need to get cosy together with a mug of something warm or to sit with a glass of something cold. Sleek style and creature comforts such as the roaring wood burner make this room a fantastic heart of the home which you will have trouble tearing yourselves from when adventures or bedtime calls. Soak up the sun in the garden as you sip an aperitif or tuck into an al fresco dinner. With plenty of space to run free, canine companions can stretch their legs and fetch sticks to their heart’s content. Choose from one of four king-size bedrooms and rest your head in style. Both ground-floor rooms have their own en-suite, and the first-floor bedrooms share a family bathroom. There is ample off-road parking.

This was perfect for our family requirements with a wide range of ages and needs. The location on the farm is lovely and it was very special for us to witness a calf being born. A quiet lane leads down to the farm and is adjacent to the canal so some very relaxing walks.
