Property Details

The Lodge @ Bowland is a boutique ground floor apartment located in the tranquil Trough of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It has been architecturally designed to blend with the local area and provides the ultimate location for a relaxing and romantic retreat.

The Space

The Forest of Bowland is one of the best kept secrets in the UK. Those who know it come back year after year for the peace and tranquillity, rural yet easily accessible, miles of quiet walks where it is rare to see another person, beautiful villages, superb cycling routes both on and off road, amazing restaurants serving the best of local produce along with beaches, high mountains and major cities less than an hour away and, without the crowds!

The Lodge @ Bowland has been stylishly decorated throughout adding combined work from local artists blended with contemporary and period furniture to create the perfect location for a tranquil and romantic escape away from it all.

The gorgeous open plan kitchen, diner and living room makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. The main living area with its floor to ceiling bi-fold doors leading directly to your private patio and contemporary Scandinavian style fire make it the ideal place to relax and enjoy the views across the stunning landscape at any time of year.   Open and airy in Summer, snug and warm during the colder months.

A gorgeous fully fitted kitchen, and the dining area furnished with table and chairs gives ample space to enjoy a lazy breakfast or more formal dining

The light and spacious bedroom is designed with a sumptuous king-size bed dressed in White Company linen to enjoy a relaxing nights sleep. The room offers plentiful storage with period pine wardrobe and chest of drawers.   A full-length mirror and dressing table with hairdryer and hair straighteners are provided.  Enjoy your favourite TV programmes on the smart TV from the comfort of your bed.

Luxuriate in the exquisite bathroom with its large walk-in rainfall shower and enjoy the complementary local artisan fragrance body care toiletries. Underfloor heating and heated towel rail keep the wonderfully fluffy White Company towels and dressing robes invitingly warm.

The private patio with furniture and umbrella overlooking Hayshaw Fell and Catshaw Fell is a perfect spot to relax or dine al fresco.

The Area

With the unspoilt Trough of Bowland so close to the doorstep, the garden attracts a plethora of wildlife giving you the opportunity to sit and observe the local fauna and flora at your leisure. The resident Tawny Owl often visits sitting on the patio railings and you may be lucky enough to see the local deer. For the more energetic, bike storage can be arranged pre-arrival, offering the ability to explore the local area on two wheels. Cycle hire is available locally. Local woodlands offer off-road and mountain biking courses. Local walking maps are available of the owner’s favourite walks along with advice on other great routes to try.

The Lodge @ Bowland nestles on the border of the Trough of Bowland, 6 miles from Lancaster. Ideal for exploring the North West of England. With easy access to the M6 motorway, The Lodge is an ideal base to explore other areas from the hills of the Lake District National Park to the coastline of Morecambe Bay. The area is a mecca for those wishing to enjoy the fresh country air and explore the local footpaths or cycle the quite country lanes. The market town of Garstang offers a variety of shops, cafés and pubs, as well as a weekly Thursday market. The historic city of Lancaster boasts a wealth of restaurants, shops and pubs; or head up to the castle for stories of the famous Pendle witches. The nearby village of Dolphinholme boasts a welcoming traditional pub and restaurant offering a local shop within, selling local produce and essentials.

A touch of luxury in the country
Review submitted 14.03.23
We found a place nothing short of perfection. In a quiet countryside location, easily accessible, is a home where everything has been thought of. From pre arrival instructions to guide the traveller to parking outside your door. The cottage itself is an open plan layout leading on to a private patio with wide ranging views. If your lucky you may see hares running in the fields. The furniture and furnishings are of exceptional quality and taste. We literally could have transported everything home. The kitchen is well equipped. There is everything you need to cater - from a glass of wine to a 3 course meal. There is an honesty bar for a thirsty traveller. There are also coffee pods and even a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge, generously left by the hosts. We enjoyed the butchers pack (£20), which was full of local goodies and fresh eggs from the hosts’ own chickens. The bed is very comfortable with high quality linens. The shower is powerful and the towels soft and luxurious. The hosts Suzanne and Kevin are delightful. They are very helpful but also unobtrusive. We’d love to go back. Don’t hesitate, go!

The Forest of Bowland is a beautiful part of the country to explore. Together with outstanding accommodation and thoughtful hosts, our three day break was just what we needed to wind down and relax. Would highly recommend!

We’ve had a very comfortable stay at the ‘Lodge, which had everything we could want, plus a couple of owner inspired nice surprises.
The peaceful and extensive countryside views from the lounge and patio were really lovely, as were the dozens of birds that visited the feeder in the garden every day.
A lot of thought has gone into the design and furnishing of the ‘Lodge, and this, combined with the welcome and friendliness of the owners and a convenient location for touring a beautiful area, is a good reason to return to see the many places we’ve still to discover.
Thanks for a lovely stay
