A Mention In The Times

We had a nice mention in the travel section of The Times yesterday. These are the best reviews to get. Totally unbiased, the cottages have been inspected and visited by the travel writer writing the comments. I have no influence on what they say and likewise I have not paid them to say it!

On page 28, under the heading 'Mills, Towers, Poolside Pads - Britain's Top Holiday Hide-outs - 25 Great British Holiday Rentals':

"Barnacre Cottages is the one for 'Best off the tourist trail'."

"Cottages in Lancashire are a fraction of the price that you'd pay in the Lake District, but at Barnacre in Garstang you're only an hours drive from the tourist sights of Cumbria and Blackpool.

At the end of the day, leave the crowds behind and head back to this peaceful farm, where the hens obligingly lay complimentary eggs (there are lambs too). You get a really upmarket experience at these six cottages, sleeping from 4 to 12, and all kitted out with everything from Villeroy and Boch crockery to Mark Wilkinson designer kitchens, with granite work surfaces and American-style fridge freezers.

The friendly owners, Terry and Sue Sharples, live on-site and are always on hand to offer tourist advice."
