Interaction with guests
There is a key safe at the property and each guest will be given their own access code before arrival. I find that most guests prefer to let themselves in and out but of course I am more than happy to show guests around if they wish and I am on hand to answer any queries that may arise during your stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst visiting relatives close by. Croston is a nice vibrant village and well placed. The house was well located, next to a pub with a boule pitch and bowling green. We ate at the Grapes and Wheatsheaf , both within easy walking distance and providing good food and service at reasonable prices. The cottage...

About the neighbourhood
The picturesque village of Croston dates back to Saxon times and is steeped in history. The centre of the village has a lovingly maintained cobbled packhorse bridge, a well known feature in the many photographs of Croston. Just beyond, on Church Street, one of the best preserved rows of 17th century cottages in England, can be seen the cobbled pathway to the village church. Beyond this lies Croft Field with its array of animal wood carvings and wild flowers. The village boasts 5 gastro pubs all with their own individual charm, as well as two popular restaurants. There is also a traditional tea room, a bank and a hairdresser. There are two stores, Londis which is just across the road from the cottage and a Co-op by the local station.
Getting around
Croston has its own local station with trains running regularly to Preston City centre and the market town of Ormskirk. From Preston station there are direct lines to both Manchester and Liverpool.
