Lancashire Self-Catering Holiday Cottages
Barnacre Holiday Cottages were the first Visit England 5-Star self-catering holiday cottages in Lancashire, all three of the original cottages having attained the highest standard awarded by Enjoy England. More recently, Mole End and Woodpecker Cottage, added in 2007, have also achieved 5-Star gradings. All our our holiday cottages have also achieved the Visit England Gold Award for Excellence in Self-Catering.
Lancashire Award-Winning 5 Star Gold Holiday Cottages
Barnacre Holiday Cottages have won many regional and national awards, including a North West Tourist Board Self-Catering Holiday of the Year Gold Award and an Excellence in England Silver Award.
Barnacre Holiday Cottages form a small, private hamlet of five luxury 5 Star Gold holiday cottages, located down a quiet country lane and up a long private driveway. Sleeping between 6 and 15 persons, our Lancashire self-catering holiday cottages can accommodate a range of families or even a small group. Each has a Mark Wilkinson designer kitchen with granite worktops and quality appliances by Miele and Neff.
Other standard equipment includes fridge, separate freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, gas hob, electric oven, microwave, Sky TV, video, CD player, iron, ironing board and hairdryer. The Old Stables, Mole End, The Piggeries and Woodpecker have Aga cookers and Old Stables even has a gas wok burner!
All of our properties are centrally heated and have wood-burning stoves. Baskets of logs and fuel areprovided. The cottages are all served by natural spring water.
All heating, electricity, bed linen, duvets and towels are included in the price. A travel cot, highchair and fireguard are available on request. The Old Stables and Partridge Cottage have an enclosed paved garden area that is especially suitable for young children.
Guests are welcome to use our all-weather tennis court, but please bring your own equipment.
The quality of the self-catering accommodation is matched by our superb location, with magnificent views towards the Lancashire coast and the Lake District. We are in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Forest of Bowland. Set in 14 acres, bordered by woodland, and visited by local deer and pheasants, you will find excellent walking on hand right from your doorstep. Fishing is available nearby.
Our holiday cottages are conveniently located for Blackpool, Lancaster, the Lake District and, to the east, the Yorkshire Dales. For golf fans, both Royal Lytham and Royal Birkdale are within easy reach, but there is also a great choice of golf courses available locally.
Finally, you are assured of a warm and personal welcome from the resident owners, Terry and Sue Sharples.
