Luxury 5 Star Gold cottages in beautiful Forest of Bowland countryside


Five original stone, luxury cottages down a quiet country lane with panoramic views across to the Lake District and coast. Ranging from traditional farm building conversions to the new contemporary designs for Woodpecker and Mole End.

Our amazing location is a delight to all guests. A paradise for wildlife lovers with deer, pheasants, hares, buzzards, woodpeckers and our own free ranging chickens and pet lambs. The variety of birds a watchers dream. A beautiful peaceful location, yet just 40 minutes drive to Windermere, Yorkshire Dales, Manchester, Liverpool or Blackpool.

Each cottage has quality furnishings, oak and tiled floors, superb Mark Wilkinson designer kitchens,  crystal glassware, exquisite crockery and plastic ware for toddlers. The interior design is a delight with comfy sofas, limestone, terracotta and oak floors and hand painted décor by a local artist. The bath and shower rooms are sparkling with luxurious towels and the bedrooms airy and dressed with fresh linen. With welcoming open fires and woodburning stoves, the cottages provide everything to ensure a comfortable stay throughout the year.

All have own laundry machines and garden areas with outdoor furniture.

Meet the owner

Sue or Terry Sharples

A friendly, family run business with resident owners Terry, Sue and daughters Kendall, Beth & Callie who live next to the cottages. Always a family member on hand to help and assist our guests, with lots of local knowledge.
