We all enjoyed our holiday in this lovely place. It was a celebratory week and this superb place gave all of us the space and comfort to enjoy ourselves. The children loved the play area and the tennis courts were used happily by all age groups. The cottage is ideally situated for trips to the Lakes and to explore the...

Stayed in Mole End with my wife, younger son, grandad and great aunt. We had a ball. The cottage was immaculate, and so warm, we live out the UK in a very hot country so the under floor heating, Aga and wood fire were fabulous. Everything worked perfectly in the cottage, the views were outstanding, you could see Blackpool Tower...

There are plenty of local attractions for our 9 yr old children- beacon fell country park, wild boar farm, cycle tracks, Blackpool zoo and guy's hamlet is a great local family restaurant.

Additional Rate and Availability Information
This listing only shows one base price, not the rates for the 5 individual cottages, these have their own separate listings on TripAdvisor with more accurate and detailed prices.

The base rate of £500 is a mid range price, more than it will cost for the 3 bedroomed sleeps 6 Partridge, but less than the large 6 bedroomed, sleeps 15 Woodpecker cottage.
The price will vary depending on which property you choose and the time of year.

The festive season is a peak time of year and we are always fully booked, with our larger Woodpecker, Old Stables and the Piggeries being the first to get booked. Bedding, towels, heating, fuel, logs for the woodburning stove, plus real and decorated Christmas Trees are provided in each of the cottages.

It will obviously cost more for the 6 bedroomed Woodpecker than the 3 bedroomed Partridge.

Prices are for 3 nights over the weekend. For flexible start days and shorter stays, please contact us.

Short breaks available all year round.

The Pleasure Beach now has a Nickleodeon theme for younger children. The Pepsi Max roller coaster and other thrilling rides. An ice rink and shows. The Tower is worth a visit, with the ballroom that held the finals of the Strictly Come in 2010, plus an amazing circus. Sandcastles is a tropical indoor pool on the promenade.
