This is a fabulous place for a large family or a group of friends. Several places to sit and relax, great kitcken facilities and everything you will need for your stay at hand. It is rural. Only slight negative is at the front of the house with windows open you can hear the motorway in the distance, however this does...

Management response:

I am pleased that you found our large 5* Gold Old Stables cottage to be fabulous and suitable for your group. Also that you were here to enjoy the warm, sunny weather we have been having the past few weeks. The 'slight negative' comment regarding noise from the motorway when the cottage windows are open was a surprise to read....

Grateful for the stay at the Barnacre Cottages. The Sharples really know how to take care of their guests, especially ones from the U.S. like my family! They made us feel right at home (and what a beautiful home it was). This was a highlight in our trip - memories of family dinners around the big kitchen table, late night...

About the neighbourhood
Whilst our surrounding countryside is beautiful, there are many places that our guests wish to visit. A traditional place is the Lake District, usually Windermere and Ambleside, which can be reached in less than an hour from here. Lots of pretty villages and towns, amazing views, but also very busy.

Blackpool is a very famous seaside town just a 35 minute drive from here. 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 Strictly Come Dancing; plus an amazing circus. Sandcastles is a tropical indoor pool on the promenade. The Illuminations in autumn on the promenade with tram and horse carriage rides.
