A beautiful cottage with plenty of appeal, very well equipped and in a lovely village with all the amenities you could wish for, including a dog-friendly pub and plenty of shops. Excellent communication with the owners and great cooperation from the neighbors when we required an extra parking space for a night. It is situated in a very quiet lane but within easy reach of the main roads in the area including the M55 to Blackpool/Manchester. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire it again if we are up that way again.
I stayed here with my Mum and a pal. It was a surprise from me for her 65th birthday. Post code sat nav takes you basically right at the front door. Emma (the owner), contacted me on the morning of my arrival to inform me where the keys were at. The cottage was ready for 12 noon which we was very grateful. No problems entering the cottage.
The cottage completely has everything for a self catering stay. Beautiful ample style cottage kitchen, all mod cons and was absolutely spotless. It has a utility room with a washer and a maiden. The cottage is pet friendly and my dog enjoyed many walks around the village and on the trail through the fields, a circular walk which was very pleasant. The cottage has a huge dinning table with six chairs and plenty of room with tiled floors. There is a real open fire in the dinning room. The room was nicely decorated and full of character.
The lounge again a good cosy size room with an open fire which is spectacular when lit. Again very nicely decorated with beautiful soft furnishing with a carpet. Lovely candles surround the room which is extremely cosy.
Upstairs there is a beautiful double bedroom at the front of the cottage, and a twin room at the back. Three piece bathroom suit. Linen and towels are provided. Cleaning products available also, an hoover, ironing board and an iron.
There's a couple of bars within the village, I personally didn't go as I don't drink, but my pal tells me the locals were very friendly and helpful.
There is a garage exactly 3 miles up Garstang road which sells most daily products.
I you do book , make sure you take a shop with you as if you have no vehicle, it will cost you bus fairs/taxi fares.
Overall, I well presented cottage which served us well and we had a very happy time here.
On entering the cottage the landlord provided us with 6 free range, local produce eggs, marmalade and jams, coffee, tea bags and sugar. Big mugs to for a proper brew.
Thank you Emma in helping me to celebrate my mums birthday with a little contemporary and cosy feel throughout.
lovely cottage had some lovely walks with the dogs, so close to st annes beach and the towns, it was nice to come in and leave the car and walk to a Indian restaurant which was lovely, the next night there local pub which served again a lovely meal.
very quite area.
This is a perfect little cottage in a great location with lovely owners.
My partner and I stayed here with our two young children for three nights in July 2017. The cottage is very homely, super clean and has everything we needed and much more. The lots of little extras (milk in the fridge, eggs, logs for the fire, parking space, wifi ...) are a nice touch.
The location is ideal too - within walking distance to some lovely pubs and restaurants and around a 15-20 minute drive to Blackpool if you wish to visit the seaside.
The owners couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating.
We'll definitely be recommending this cottage to our friends and family and hope to be back one day ourselves.
Thanks for a great stay.
Had the pleasure to stay at Vine Cottage for 4 weeks, originally booked for 3 but extended the stay for an additional week. Fantastic location, lovely cosy cottage, well equipped, very clean and nicely decorated. We weren't actually on holiday so spent a lot of time in the cottage and felt like home from home, with a lovely log fire. Emma & Jez were extremely very helpful, friendly and very responsive to any queries. The village is also very friendly, lots of lovely countryside, great pubs, great chippy (best Fish & Chips we've had in years). We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cottage.
Good location to St Anne's and Blackpool. Lovely quiet place with great garden bird activity! Lovely log fire for those colder nights. Just make sure you ask for or bring logs with you. Nice touch of milk, fresh eggs. Great for dogs and close to field across main Rd to let dog off for a run. Would definately visit again and recommend. Our 9 year old enjoyed it too.
