Pretty stone cottage on the outside - modern interior and superfast broadband on the inside. Idyllic country setting with only the sheep and birds in view. Self-catering cottage with its own small paddock - perfect for 2 adults who want a quiet bolt-hole in a truly beautiful location. Sofabed can sleep third guest if required (3rd guest does incur additional nightly cost). Baby up to 2yrs free and travel cot/high chair also available. Up to 2 dogs welcome at no additional charge.

The space
All on one level but step at front door. Modern shower-room. Living/dining/kitchen combined. Great superking-size bed in bedroom but can be split into two singles - just ask in advance and I'll make up whichever format you like. Small double sofabed in living area for one extra adult or child. (Maximum of 3 guests permitted - 3rd guest at small extra nightly charge - plus infant under 2 free). Travel cot also available (best for pre-climbing age baby) + high chair etc. Very well fitted kitchen area with oven, hob, microwave, fridge and freezer. Full CH but also cosy 'log-burner' effect electric fire. Smart TV hooked up to superfast broadband with Freeview and catch-up. Free superfast wi-fi. Own patio area with garden furniture + you can store bikes/walking gear/mucky stuff in our shed. Cottage looks out on small fenced paddock which you can enjoy as you choose (games! doggy exercise! sheep-watching! star-gazing...!) Car parking space. Well behaved dogs welcome - please bring own dog-bed and gear, and promise to keep pooch off all furniture. But we should warn you there is a light coloured carpet we'd like to keep clean so there's a 'muddy boot cupboard' right by the front door. Thanks!

Guest access
Garden Cottage is an entirely self-contained property, both inside and out. It's accessed directly from the guest parking area via a small attached paddock. The paddock comes with the cottage and is entirely for the full and sole use of guests staying at Garden Cottage (great for doggy games!) There is also a private patio outside the cottage which is solely for the use of guests. Although we live next door guests have their own external parking, and do not need to pass through any of our private accommodation or grounds. So you can be completely independent during your stay.

Other things to note
No streetlights! (Bring a torch if you are nocturnal). Your private access into the cottage is across a small grassed paddock (about 30 yards walk from your parking area). This is kept mown but grass can be wet! So just be aware you have a grassy area to cross to get to your front door - thanks. We also have two very friendly rescue greyhounds who regularly run outside (not directly in your area but within sight of it) so we do ask guests not to bring any aggressive dogs please, to avoid any potential doggy trouble - and all drive/garden/paddock gates must be kept closed at all times or our boys will go off on an adventure, and as we live in sheep country that could be dangerous.

Tatham, England, United Kingdom

Fabulous walking or cycling from the door in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the Trough of Bowland - a hidden gem of an area often overlooked due to its more famous neighbours the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District - but with easy access to both. Horse-riding available locally, great local country pubs with pub-grub within 1-2 miles. Peace, quiet, birdsong, absolutely no traffic noise and no light pollution in our hamlet - but only 15 mins drive from J34 of M6 - and 20 mins into centre of Lancaster with all the history and culture a city offers. We are 1m outside Wray village which has a shop/Post Office, pub and lovely riverside tea-shop/garden centre. Walkable in 20 mins from Garden Cottage.

During your stay
We live in the old farmhouse beside Garden Cottage but we very much want you to be as independent as you like. We may even be away during some visits - but if we're here and can help with anything that's fine too.
