About Barn Owl Cottage

Discreetly tucked away in the pretty hamlet of Little Eccleston, Barn Owl was originally a cobblestone barn adjoining the old Smithy. Since then, it has been imaginatively converted into a unique holiday cottage, equipped for 4 people. Nearby is the River Wyre with its historic toll bridge and riverside walks and a delightful 17th century coaching inn serving a wide choice of drinks and food.
Personally run to a high standard, the accommodation comprises of a very pleasant lounge with wall-mounted wide screen TV and DVD; fully equipped kitchen with archway to the dining room and a small downstairs toilet.
Upstairs the master bedroom is furnished with a double bed, fitted wardrobes and dressing table. There are also two nicely furnished single bedrooms with far-reaching views and a pleasant family bathroom with hand shower.
Outside there is a small, secluded natural garden with patio, garden furniture and off road parking.
Within easy walking distance is the attractive village of Great Eccleston with its weekly market, high class bistro, celebrated fish and chip restaurant, cafe-tea room, patisserie and a variety of shops and pubs.
To the East of the property is the Fair Trade town of Garstang, the beautiful Trough of Bowland and the historic city of Lancaster with its castle and priory.
To the West of the property are the Fylde coast resorts of Lytham, St. Annes, Blackpool (with daily flights to the Isle of Man and spectacular Autumn Illuminations) and Fleetwood with their miles of golden sand.
Further to the north is the unsurpassed English Lake District.
Welcome hamper of fresh local produce.
Sorry no children under 5.
