The bed was so sumptuous and soft, it's very quiet and peaceful, we will definitely stay again, Ann the owner is a lovely chatty lady nothing is too much trouble. We can't praise this b&b enough. It's off the beaten track but still within 15 minutes of Preston town centre by car.

We had one night at Willow cottage, Ann really looked after us and our four year old. The beds were very comfortable in the family room and the bathroom was gorgeous - large free standing bath, separate shower and a cupid/shell theme in blues (not en suite, but there were no other people staying, so we had the place to...

Actually better than home because you get a fabulous locally sourced full English breakfast and you don't have to do the washing up. Willow Cottage is a proper farm B&B with horses grazing next door and hens laying your breakfast eggs at the end of the drive. Busy cottagey bedrooms have all the amenities you could want and Anne is...

Stayed here for one night to celebrate mum's birthday and it was perfect. Lovely country location, very friendly (but not overpowering) hostess made us feel very welcome. She had had a cancellation so although we had booked a family room she made two rooms available at no extra cost. Very well appointed rooms with lots of character. Comfy bed, feather...

This is a premier B&B and Ann, the Owner, is absolutely wonderful! The moment we stepped in the door we felt like we were at home. Oh ...and I cannot say enough about the delicious breakfast, the full English breakfast was so tasty that my husband ate it every day and we were there for a week! Ann even prepared...

A lovely setting for the bed and breakfast. The room was lovely, large double, crisp clean bedding. With a nice two seater sofa and tea and coffee to help you chill out. Our room had a separate bathroom with a free standing bath, separate shower cubicle and plenty of clean towels. The other two rooms from which we could had...

A family funeral brought the family to Longton. It was a quiet location and a very comfortable B & B. An excellent breakfast helped the family to face the day. The hostess provided useful information on where to eat and was very accommodating. Thank You.
