Brackenthwite Farm

What our visitors say…

“A great stay in an immaculate cottage , in a beautiful location. Away from the hustle yet quickly accessible and central to so many other great places. The cottage itself was very well equipped with all you could need. The owner is great, very knowledgeable, willing to help but not intrusive. He is there if you need or want him. The kids enjoyed the farm, especially the lambs and the chicks. Inside is very clean and tastefully decorated. We could not have asked for anything better and look forward to returning.”

“One of the cleanest places we have ever stayed in!”

“Location, location, location. This cottage has it all. Near enough to the M6 so that your holiday journey is not too long, but away from it enough to feel no hustle and bustle. You don’t find yourself travelling 30 mins of winding single roads each day on your way out exploring, 15 mins to the M6 and you can visit both the Lake District and Yorkshire. For the children the beach is not too far, yet you wake up each day to the most fantastic views and the feeling of tranquility. Your holiday can be both restful and busy with local activities for the family. The cottage is cosy, yet spacious. It is immaculately maintained and cleaned. The owners are so kind and helpful and will gladly advise on local sights and activities to go and see. We have been twice and will definitely visit again. Love it.”

“Wonderful location, lovely cottage, friendly farm animals and delicious eggs. Not to mention the views and walks. Please don’t all go or I won’t get a look in when I want to book for next time! 😉 Thanks for making us feel so welcome and helping us to have such a great holiday.”

“Views from the cottage were wonderful and therapeutic. It was lovely to hear the birdsong everyday and see the greenery of the countryside. The beach at Morecambe was enjoyed by the children and adults alike. Trips to Windermere and Coniston were breathtaking. All in all had a lovely time, shame to have to return to the city. The cottage was comfortable and restful.”
