Spotlight on: Howgills Barn
Welcome to Howgills Barn, our luxury 5-star cottage in the heart of the Lancashire Lune Valley. This charming property can be found between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
The perfect base from which to explore the beautiful English countryside, here you’ll enjoy being within walking distance of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and pretty villages, where wellies and a well-earned pint are all part of the fun.
Howgills has been renovated to provide every modern comfort, while preserving the beautiful architecture of the old barn. Experience true cottage comfort and enjoy luxury amenities, including a flat screen TV with cinema sound, DVD/Blu-ray player, iPod dock, and free Wi-Fi access.
For chilly winter evenings in the cottage, snuggle up in front of the wood-burning stove, and cook something delicious in the fully-fitted kitchen. You’ll even find a Nespresso coffee machine waiting for you come breakfast time.
You’d be forgiven for not wanting to leave the cottage, with fluffy robes and super king-sized beds available for your comfort. Both bedrooms enjoy their own en-suite wet rooms, with walk-in showers and deep bathtubs.
If you’re a fan of lengthy walks and experiencing the rustic countryside, this Mill House Cottages property is ideal.
Howgills Barn is nestled among the countryside of the Dales and the Forest of Bowland, settled nearby to pretty villages Middleton, Dent and Barbon. The barn is also located just under 40 minutes from Carnforth. This pretty Lancashire town offers charming micro-pubs serving superb local food.
Dent Heritage Centre
This museum and heritage centre is well worth the lengthy walk (roughly three hours) for its information on the history of the working Dales folk of this stunning area.
Docker Park Farm
Carnforth’s little farm is open to visitors in the summer, and children will love meeting the pigs, llamas and goats, plus there are mini tractors to enjoy a ride on, too.
If you’re in need of a good book to curl up in front of the fire with, look no further than this family-run bookshop. Opened in 1977, this shop offers three floors of shelves groaning with books asking to be browsed.
