This delightful, end-terrace cottage sits in a lovely rural location, three miles from Lancaster, and sleeps six people in three bedrooms.

Basil Barn is a delightful end-of-terrace holiday home set three miles from Lancaster, and less than ten minutes' walk from Lancaster Golf Club. With one ground floor double bedroom, one ground floor twin and one first floor twin with en-suite bathroom (both twins can be super king-size doubles on request), this cottage can sleep six people. There's also a ground floor family bathroom and an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with woodburner.

Outside, there is off road parking for two cars plus lockable bike storage, a shared garden and a walled paddock area beyond. With wonderful walking and cycling routes from the door leading to the beautiful Lune Estuary, and the historic city of Lancaster just a few miles away, this is a great holiday home for friends and families to enjoy.


We were immensely impressed by the welcome given by owners. The property exuded class and we were very pleased with all aspects of our stay. It was comfortable in every way and it is in delightful surroundings, the added delights of the two goats and the peacocks made for a memorable stay. Fully recommended.
Mr Varley

Basil Barn is in a very good location for exploring North Lancashire, the South Lake District and the Forest of Bowland. The barn is a good size for six people and a toddler and is well appointed.
Mr Breakey

A very warm, cosy and well equipped barn in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed looking out on the sheep and the visiting peacocks were delightful, thank you.
Mrs Bailey

The accommodation was perfect for our needs. It was very comfortable and warm and looked good too! The location was excellent, being reasonably close to Lancaster but in a rural setting.
Mrs Maude

Absolutely loved Basil Barn, it was a perfect relaxing weekend, dog friendly. The description of cottage was spot on and we will definitely be booking again, loved it.
