Peter and Linux were the perfect Hosts and our Cottage BEECH was SUPERB as was the holiday. Sadly I read that the Cottages are being Sold and I gave had to...

We stayed in the Corner cottage with our friends - a family of 3. We all felt the cottage was very clean and well presented. The kitchen was very well equipped, we were never short of crockery or cleaning materials. The kids (both 2 years old and a 4 month old) loved the facilities that were available on site, the...

Towels are provided and possibly everything else you can think of, even some fudge!. Amenities at the cottage include been able to watch films downloaded via Apple TV and there...

We have just left Higher Bowden Cottages and had a wonderful time. Nobody wanted to come home as it was a perfect place for a family holiday. Peter and Lin were lovely hosts and the cottages were very clean and tidy. My kids loved the safe site and the swimming pool. My son now wants a guinea pig! Thanks so...

2 adults and 3 children (8,5&nearly 2) stayed in the Garden cottage for a (mainly) wet week. Peter was a little brusque when we drove up to our parking spot, and didn't warm up later when I knocked on his door to ask for a restaurant recommendation. The note on the office door says it shuts at 5pm but the...

We spent two weeks here in early July with two young children. The surrounding area is full of family friendly things to do (steam train, castles, beaches). The standard of the accommodation was excellent, the amenities for children are very good (swimming pool, trampoline, tennis court, play park), However, if your kids (or you) are football mad there is no...

My wife and I stayed with friends in the Garden Cottage for a Monday-Friday short break. We found the cottage to be very comfortably furnished and very well equipped. We especially enjoyed the views from the cottage patio area of the lovely grounds that surround the complex. We found the owners , Lin and Peter, to be very friendly. We...

Higher Bowden is an ideal place to relax. We enjoyed walking, having the swimming pool and spa bath to ourselves and finding some good places to eat..Lin and Peter were very welcoming and helpful. We were a couple on our own but it is an ideal site for families with lots to do.

We came in the Easter Holidays for a long weekend - two couples and three girls aged from 4 months to 6 years. Everyone had the best time - the owners were so welcoming and the facilities are amazing. The location is great, a nice walk to Blackpool Sands. We would definitely recommend this to any young family, and are...
