A beautiful cottage in a fabulous location. Ideal for families, spacious rooms and a kitchen with everything you need in the way of crockery and cookware. Close to motorway and supermarket. A great place to stay with family and friends.

“Well equipped and comfortable accomodation”
Reviewed 22 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Midsummer Barn must be the best equipped holiday rental I have ever stayed in with everything you could think of and more besides, we stayed for 2 weeks in May 2015 and was comfortable with 5 adults and 3 children under 5 was ideal for what we wanted, position close to motorway, views to die for and clean. There were 2 safety gates provided one for the top of the stairs and one for the bottom making it very safe, videos for children & movies for adults and free WiFi, I would recommend Midsummer Barn for couples and families and was good value for money

“Outstanding value with great access to Greater Manchester”
Reviewed 30 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

A hidden gem in the Lancashire countryside, that catered perfectly for our needs. The owners were quick and flexible to respond to our needs. My only struggle was my car (used to driving around Cambridgeshire) suddenly having to contend with proper Northern hills.

“Great weekend away”
Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I recently stayed here with my wife and our dog Rufus. We booked this cottage very last minute and Yvonne was very helpful and e mailed us everything we needed.

The cottage itself is very homely. It is not the most modern in decor, but it makes up for it in charm and not to forget the amazing views from the garden. The cottage itself comes with everything you could think of and has a lovely big kitchen/diner with a big range cooker. If you wanted to stay longer there a full washing and ironing facilities if you wanted to travel light.

Another nice touch was the bottle of rosé wine left by the owners, which certainly complemented our evening meal.

The beds are comfy and the bedrooms are very spacious.

The best part of this cottage though is its location. It has lovely views of the countryside and is accessed down a narrow country lane allowing a well deserved break from all the hustle and bustle.

We would love to go back

“Lovely home from home”

people found this review helpful

I stayed at midsummer barn with my husband and 2 sons aged 5 and 6 as well as my mum and dad and brother as we were visiting for a family christening for the weekend. There was plenty of room for all of us the rooms are spacious and so is the kitchen. The cottage was clean and inviting with all home comforts as well as a lovely touch of eggs and home made wine left in the fridge! There was plenty of space for us all to sit around the kitchen table for breakfast and relax in the lounge. Kitchen is also well stocked with plates cutlery and pans etc The view over the hills from the lounge and bedroom is lovely! Just be careful with young children in the garden as it backs onto the farm although it is well fenced off. The road/track down to the cottage is not for the faint hearted but all adds to the charming country experience of the cottage. Overall a lovely homely place to stay with the family we would defiantly stay here again,
