Brackenthwaite Cottages


Come and relax and unwind in one of our four comfortable self-catering holiday cottages. We are situated on a family farm in heart of the delightful Arnside/Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (A.O.N.B.): a real “hidden gem”.

Our four holiday cottages include: Brackenthwaite Cottage (sleeps up to six) which was the original old farm house and is steeped in 17th Century charm (free Wi-Fi and towels); Keepers Cottage (sleeps up to four) has all rooms on a single level; while The Old Stables Cottages No.1 (sleeps up to six) and No.2 (sleeps up to four) were converted from a barn in 1988. A private farm nature trail is available to all our visitors where they can explore nature first hand. Leighton Moss RSPB and Gait Barrows Nature Reserves are very close by. With excellent access to the coast, The Lake District, Forest of Bowland AONB and the Yorkshire Dales. A truly great area for walking, fishing, horse riding, cycling and a paradise for bird watches!

We are inspected and graded annually by VisitBritain: 3 – 4 Stars.

We are open all year, with short-breaks (minimum charge of three nights) available between November and Easter, or at late availability.

Prices vary week-by-week from cottage to cottage, so best to please see contact us directly for the period you wish to book directly on either 015395 63276 or via email:
