Every bit of what we found at the Partridge was as expected ... or better. Terry and Sue made us feel as if we are part of their own family for our 11-day stay. The accommodations were perfect for our 11 days of day trips, watching football, golfing, walking, and eating (way too much!). They also had great advice for which destinations are can't-miss Northern England locations, and which to avoid. Memories of the walk from the Partridge to sit for coffee and scones each morning in Scorton (about 2.5 miles away), through beautiful old narrow roads and occasional public footpaths, will always be treasured by us. The tennis and barbeques that their cottages provided facilities for are two examples of unexpected bonuses that we learned of shortly after arrival. Terry and Sue would stop in almost every day to assure that all was fine with the cottage, along with a daily offer of "Is there anything you need? Any questions?" We felt so incredibly welcome while there. In summary, we cannot imagine that our experience of an 11-day England visit would have been nearly as rich if it were not for the Partridge Cottage ... we've never been so happy to have not selected hotel accommodations. We hope to return to Barnacre, soon.

“We had a superb week at Barnacre Cottages”
Reviewed 3 January 2011 for a stay in December 2010

We booked to stay at Barnacre Cottages so that we could see family over Christmas, but at the same time have some space to ourselves.
We stayed in Partridge Cottage which sleeps six. When we arrived, Terry came to meet us and showed us around the cottage. A Christmas tree had been put up and decorated very tastefully and the fire was burning. We immediately felt at home.
The accommodation was perfect for us, there was a ready supply of logs and coal and we enjoyed having a real fire every evening. The kitchen was very well equipped with both every day and occasion crockery and glasses - something I've never seen before.
The bedrooms were good sizes with comfortable beds. We slept in each morning as each bedroom has a black out blind, the only indication of it being morning was the cock crowing - but that was from 8am onwards so it didn't disturb!
The cottage was warm - one of things I'd been concerned about as we were visiting during the worst winter for some time!
Most days we went for a walk, mainly to Scorton and ate regularly at the Priory which serves delicious food.
Garstang is a couple of miles away and has good pubs and supermarkets.
The most frustrating thing for us was that the tennis court was covered in snow and being keen tennis players we were hoping to get some tennis in each day!
I would recommend Barnacre cottages, whether you are visiting family in the area or whether you want to explore a new area of the country.

“Barnacre cottages are lovely.”
Reviewed 27 October 2010 for a stay in October 2010

I have returned to Barnacre several times since first discovering it 5 or 6 years ago (through Premier Cottages brochure). It is my Mum's favourite place in the whole country and we have stayed in many places and cottages (all 5 star).
The cottages are clean, cosy and comfortable and well equipped.
Sue and Terry are friendly and helpful.
The local area is full of lovely places to eat out and shop and the scenery is beautiful ranging from moors to forests to the coast. It is a great place to base yourself & have easy access to many different parts of the country.
We can sit in front of an open fire & watch Sky TV or surf the internet, then sleep soundly in comfortable beds. We can breakfast on freshly laid eggs, then wander along the quiet, leafy lanes for an hour before heading out for the day.
Barnacre cottages fulfil all my requirements for a home away from home, and I am a very fussy customer. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
