The setting of the property is ideal for those looking to get away into the area of forest of bowland / Preston. Safe for children to play outside - tennis court and gardens a lovely feature - comfortable accommodation for 12 of us.
The directions need to be rewritten as without Sat Nav it's not precise . We stayed in the Old Stables and it was Tadis like from outside to in ! Very comfortable but found the beds to be both too small and mattresses meant two people couldn't sleep well together due to rolling into middle. Fabulous AGA but the cooking pans were not suitable for using on / in an AGA (we only cook on AGA at home) so needs investment here (also no lids) . Bathrooms were the only real let down but a pleasant setting and a fine stay for 3 days
The location was perfect for our family get together - this was an all age group
80th birthday and catered for us all perfectly. The hosts where fantastic very helpful and genuinely nice people.
We'll definately be going again!
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 make it very convenient for getting around.

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 family talks and laughs, family walks around the property (with the hens following along), and family adventures in nearby Lancaster, Lake District, and Heysham's Head. I'll definitely stay here again & invite others to do the same.
