Make a holiday rental apartment or cottage in Lancashire, England your home away from home

People flock to Lancashire from all across the world to enjoy the fantastic combination of wide, rustic green countryside, bustling seaside resorts and of course, the warm welcome you will almost certainly receive. Millions arrive annually for days out in Lancashire, yet there is so much to do upon arrival that a single day trip simply couldn’t even give you a flavour of this historic and varied county of North West England.

Things to do in Lancashire

Lancashire’s tourist attractions are numerous. The beaches that line the coast are among the best known Lancashire tourist attractions, with Blackpool offering what is almost certainly the most famous current beach resort in the country. However, away from the bustle, nightlife and roller coasters of Blackpool, Lancashire is also home to quieter, more naturally appealing beach resorts.

Away from Lancashire’s famous coastline are huge swathes of beautiful, unspoilt countryside, providing a vast range of things to do in Lancashire. There are countless miles of footpaths and cycle routes cutting through the green, undulating countryside. Lancashire walks can vary from short afternoon strolls after a hearty lunch in a Lancashire public house to multi day hikes into the limestone hills of the West Pennine Moors, the Forest of Bowland and the salt marshes along the coast. Lancashire walks up the peaks of the Clougha are well marked, and for a less strenuous yet equally spectacular Lancashire walk, there are more than 130 miles of coastal paths to explore. For those who would prefer to tour with a golf club in hand, there are some excellent options too. There are some excellent golf courses to play in Lancashire, including the world famous courses of Royal Lytham and St Annes.

The canal routes of Lancashire are huge attractions, and whilst they tell a story of the history of the area, they also provide a huge range of things to do in Lancashire. The canals here provide some of the finest canal fishing in England, as well as some of the most peaceful walking routes. Littered along the canals are among the most enticing Lancashire public houses too.

Places to visit on holiday to Lancashire

Blackpool is a huge attraction for many people flocking to a holiday rental in Lancashire. Blackpool Tower is one of the most recognised tourist attractions in Lancashire, marking the centre of the ‘Pleasure Beach’, a huge amusement park and funfair which has taken over much of the town. The nightlife is infamous, with many bars, arcades, theatres and performances opening every night. On the quieter side, Morecambe Bay is a beach resort and natural bird sanctuary of worldwide acclaim. Over 100 species of bird can be seen in the area, coming from countries around the world.

Travel to Lancashire

Reaching self catering accommodation in Lancashire is easy from anywhere in the UK and throughout Europe.

I work and live in Oman and was looking to getaway from all the heat in a place me and my family (wife and 3 kids (6,3, and 8months) could relax in and call home for the duration. After finalising the booking, Ian and Sue (I&S) enquired about the facilities required for the children (toys, high chair, etc...), provided an address for the Tesco provisions to be dropped off, as well as a map. On arrival at the property we were greeted by electric gates which provided a sense of security for me. I&S were waiting to greet us at the other side of the gates and show us around Hodder Cottage. The cottage was a 3 bedroom cottage with an open plan kitchen / dining area, and lounge. The décor and cleanliness of the place was above our expectations. Two of the rooms had double beds and the third two single beds. In addition the main bedroom had an en suite. All towels, bedding, and bathrobes were provided, and in excellent condition. The kitchen had all the creature comforts of home in terms of utensils and appliances. Everything looked new to me. The attention to detail was impeccable. All rooms had electric skylights, which had built in electric blinds, and rain sensors. These were extremely good at providing copious lighting to the rooms. The cottages had WiFi which worked well on the whole, but could do with a booster being fitted as the signal was intermittent depending on where you were in the residence. Speed was reasonable given we were in the country side. Outside is a seating area for 4, a barbeque, and a small patch of grass. There was ample parking available. As mentioned earlier access was via remote controlled electric gates which are operated by key fob (provided). Beyond the "estate" there is a) gorgeous scenery, and sunsets which is best viewed on foot. b) a reservoir, c) plenty of wildlife. I'm abit of an amateur photographer so this was heaven for me. I&S completely respected our privacy and only dropped by if we requested anything or if we stopped them in passing for a chat. The property surpassed our expectations, and we would definitely look to book another stay if I&S would have us back. It was a home away from home. A big thank you to Ian and Sue for making it a break we will remember for a long time. Book early as they quite rightly get booked up during peak season. Regards Akram Family.

The cottage is situated is a good area to be able to visit local towns and villages of interest. The owners were very friendly and helpful and were always on hand if we needed anything. I would recommend Calder Cottage.
