There are many things to do near Barnacre Cottages
Barnacre is set in the Forest of Bowland in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with magnificent views towards the Lancashire coast and the Lake District. 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.
If you enjoy walking, there are many footpaths and lanes to follow, including the popular Nicky Nook and Grizedale Valley walks that follow the river through the valley up to the reservoirs. With wildlife in abundance, walking is a pleasure, whatever the weather. For those who like a break along the way, the nearby village of Scorton with its café, coffee shop and pub, offers a welcome rest and the energy for the uphill walk back.
Our holiday cottages are conveniently located for Blackpool, Lancaster, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales to the east. For golf fans, both Royal Lytham and Royal Birkdale are within easy reach and there is also a great choice of golf courses available locally.
Only four miles away is the small, pleasant town of Garstang, with lots of small shops and a weekly market on the High Street every Thursday. Lancaster is just twenty minutes away and is a truly historic city with the Castle and Prison especially worth a visit, along with the Museum, Tropical Butterfly House, Dukes Theatre and summer plays held in Williamson Park.
We hope you enjoy your stay!
