Barnacre Cottages were the first gold multi award winning, five-star, self-catering holiday cottages in Lancashire, in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the Forest of Bowland. Created from the old stone buildings of an 18th century farmhouse that had lain empty and neglected for many years, we spent two years converting these beautiful farm buildings into superb holiday cottages aspiring to the very highest standards of self-catering accommodation. Set in our own 14 acres of fields surrounded by woodland and with a variety of visiting birds and wildlife including, pheasants, buzzards, hares, rabbits and deer.

Great walks from our door. Children welcome to run, play and picnic in our fields. Child friendly location with play area, swings, slide, climbing frame, playhouse and fort.

All weather tennis court. New stable block with Fluff our pony. Free ranging pet chickens and egg collecting.

At Easter time we have lambs for bottle feeding. THE PIGGERIES: The Piggeries, as its name suggests, was created from the original piggeries to form a luxury detached 2 bedroomed cottage. The view across to the Cumbrian coast and Lake District enjoyed by those bygone pigs was spectacular by day and magical at night, and remains no less so today.

On New Year's Eve, fireworks can be seen for miles around from the comfort of an armchair before the woodburning stove The cottage possesses a very special charm and is feature rich.
