Our Inspector's View
Barnacre Cottages can be found down a quiet country lane on the owners’ 14 acres of fields and woodland that have panoramic views. The cottages are fully equipped for holidays and breaks all year round; they are warm and cosy with real fires and woodburning stoves in winter. Guests can enjoy the private gardens, with outdoor furniture, in summer – ideal for barbecues. Barnacre is within easy travelling distance of Manchester, Liverpool, the Lake District and Blackpool.

About The area
Lancashire was at the centre of the British cotton industry in the 19th century, which lead to the urbanization of great tracts of the area. The cotton boom came and went, but the industrial profile remains. Lancashire’s resorts, Blackpool, Southport and Morecambe Bay, were originally developed to meet the leisure needs of the cotton mill town workers. Blackpool is the biggest and brashest, celebrated for it tower, miles of promenade, and the coloured light ‘illuminations’. Amusements are taken very seriously here, day and night, and visitors can be entertained in a thousand different ways.
The former county town, Lancaster, boasts one of the younger English universities, dating from 1964. Other towns built up to accommodate the mill-workers with back-to-back terraced houses, are Burnley, Blackburn, Rochdale and Accrington. To get out of town, you can head for the Pennines, the ‘backbone of England’, a series of hills stretching from the Peak District National Park to the Scottish borders. To the north of the country is the Forest of Bowland, which despite its name is fairly open country, high up, with great views.
