The location was perfect for our family get together - this was an all age group
80th birthday and catered for us all perfectly. The hosts where fantastic very helpful and genuinely nice people.
We'll definately be going again!
This is a fabulous place for a large family or a group of friends. Several places to sit and relax, great kitcken facilities and everything you will need for your stay at hand. It is rural. Only slight negative is at the front of the house with windows open you can hear the motorway in the distance, however this does make it very convenient for getting around.

Grateful for the stay at the Barnacre Cottages. The Sharples really know how to take care of their guests, especially ones from the U.S. like my family! They made us feel right at home (and what a beautiful home it was). This was a highlight in our trip - memories of family dinners around the big kitchen table, late night family talks and laughs, family walks around the property (with the hens following along), and family adventures in nearby Lancaster, Lake District, and Heysham's Head. I'll definitely stay here again & invite others to do the same.
We spent a wonderful 3 night weekend break -a sort of reunion-with us all coming from scattered areas of the country- in The Old Stables. The owners, Sue & Terry, were the perfect hosts-very discreet but friendly & welcoming.Sue had baked a gorgeous, huge, Victoria sponge for our late evening arrival & Terry was there on my arrival to show me round.
Long walks were taken in the glorious, but very muddy, countryside surrounding the cottages with the warmth of an Aga to welcome us back!
The cottage was superbly equipped - highlights being the Aga, the huge American style fridge complete with ice-maker, and the sheer comfort & warmth.
Would love to go back in the Spring/Summer-we would all thoroughly recommend Barnacre.
PS Forgot to mention the very friendly hens who were keen to enter the cottage in the mornings!
