We booked both the Shippon and the Granary for a 40th birthday weekends for a group of us (plus young children) On arrival we were pleasantly surprised by the accommodation, everything being even nicer than the photos suggested (which is normally not the case!) We wanted a very low key place to stay where we could have a relaxed family...

Thank you for a perfect place to stay for a short break whilst visiting our new niece. We needed somewhere to stay with our 4 month old & 3 year old & The Stables was just right.

The perfect place for a peaceful and relaxing get away. Lovely cottage with everything you could need, a couple of good pubs within walking distance, ideal location for walks along the canal and near enough to Burscough and Ormskirk to drive within 10 minutes. An ideal break and can't wait to go back

This is a fabulous little cottage in a delightful location. Well equipped and spotless, we will be returning. Had a walk down the canal to The Farmers Arms - great beer selection. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. It is a very peaceful location and perfect for relaxing.

It was a great location for us, as there was great cycling from the front door. Quiet location and very well equipped cottage. Despite being small it actually felt very spacious inside. There was also enough space to park 2 cars, which you don't often get with such small cottages.
