Originally a Westmorland stone barn, this charming B&B has pine beams and a real cottage atmosphere. The guest accommodation is a mini-apartment on the ground floor, with one bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, and hall area.
On a warm summer evening the courtyard garden is the perfect place to sit and relax. The local pub is 15 mins walk along the tranquil Lancaster canal.
Easy to find, only 5 mins from the M6:J36.
Complimentary tea, coffee & milk. Breakfast not included - more info below.

The private bathroom has a shower over the bath.
Guests comment on Diana's attention to detail - the welcoming cup of tea with home-made scones and the comfort of your guest room, made-up to your requirements as a single, twin or super-king. There are fluffy bath robes to curl up in too.
Guest access is to the guest accommodation area only. This is on the ground floor of our converted barn, accessed via our front door. Guests are also free to sit and enjoy our little courtyard garden.
On arrival we invite our guests for a welcome chat, as they enjoy home-made scones and a 'cuppa'.
Diana is happy to talk 'food' and share her cooking secrets. Vic is at hand with suggestions for days out and an itinerary to avoid the crowds. He is also your 'weather man', with the latest reports for hill-top walkers and Lakes ramblers. Maybe you just need to know how many bridges to count along the canal before reaching the village pub.
Breakfast is NOT included in the booking price as more and more of our guests are choosing to cater for themselves in the little kitchen included in their accommodation. A light breakfast is available at a supplement of £6.00 pp - please request in advance of your stay. Complimentary tea, coffee and milk are provided.
As a B&B we have full public liability insurance.

Vic and I love meeting new people and introducing our guests to the warm hospitality of the people, great food and fabulous scenery in our beautiful corner of Cumbria.
I am happy to talk 'food' and may be persuaded to share one or two of my cooking secrets. Remember to ask about my experience of being a finalist on Britain's Best Dish.
Vic used to work for the Lake District National Park and is now kept busy in his retirement with various local projects. He is currently involved with 'Bay Tourism', promoting the beautiful Morcambe Bay area as a tourist destination. He knows our area very well and is always at hand with suggestions for days out and an itinerary to avoid the crowds. He is also your 'weather man', with the latest reports for hill-top walkers and Lakes ramblers.
We both love photography and have plenty of books on the subject for your bedtime reading.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our home and surroundings.
Vic and Diana Brown
