Whether your ideal holiday is to relax in the country, hit the tourist trail, play golf or 'shop till you drop', then this is the perfect base. Situated in the heart of rich arable farmland of West Lancashire, peace and quiet are guaranteed. You will wake refreshed and relaxed to the sound of bird song. We have a large garden for the use of the whole family, and an enclosed court yard for safe parking. For further detail of our cottages please visit our website.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

M6: Leave the M6 at Junction 27. Take the A5209 to Southport /Ormskirk. Keep on this road for about 7 miles until you reach the junction with the A59. At this junction turn left, onto A59, towards Ormskirk. At approx 1 mile turn right onto B5242 (Pippin Street). Go straight down this road for about 2 miles until you reach a pub called the 'Heatons Bridge'. After the Heatons Bridge take first right into Drummersdale Lane then first right again into Merscar Lane. At the bottom of Merscar Lane turn RIGHT again into Martin Lane. At about 250 metres go straight on and over the hump-backed bridge over the canal. Take care at this point as there is a blind bend with traffic approaching from the left and they have the right of way! Once you have gone over the bridge, we are fourth on the right.

Southport to Manchester train stops at New Lane Station approx. 1.5 miles away. Bus from Southport to Ormskirk stops at Heatons Bridge every hour, 1 mile away. Trains from Ormskirk to Liverpool run regularly.
