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. The football groun...
Getting around
A car is the best way to get around our local area. However, there is a public bus service on the main A6 road a couple of miles away. The nearest train station is Lancaster, Preston is a much larger station a bit further away. We have local taxi firms in nearby Garstang who are happy to provide a service for our guests.
