Lancashire has lots for you to see and do during your self catering holiday at Shirebank Court cottages. If you love life outdoors, there are countryside, canal or coastal routes to explore as well as the nearby Forest of Bowland. Even Cumbria’s Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales are less than an hour’s drive away.
Nearby, the market town of Garstang is the world’s first ever Fair Trade Town. Its traditional outdoor market and the tiny alleyways or “weinds” crowded with quaint shops add to an unusual and memorable holiday shopping experience.
The Georgian city of Lancaster is 5 miles from Shirebank Court. With its historic castle, quay and museums Lancaster is one of the county’s cultural charms. The home of Lancaster University, it has a cosmopolitan café culture with lots of unique restaurants.
Half an hour away is Blackpool. Vibrant and noisy, bright Blackpool is full of family attractions like The Sea Life Centre, Blackpool Tower or those world famous Blackpool Illuminations as well as a lively night life for adult visitors.
