Description of Midsummer Barn

Midsummer Barn is a self-catering holiday cottage located on the edge of Belthorn Village, on the West Pennine Moors, near Blackburn. The three-bedroomed mid-barn conversion can sleep up to 6 people (+ cot) (7 people by prior arrangement), and up to 2 dogs are also welcome. Stroll down the un-made lane, or walk across the many local footpaths, or just relax in the enclosed garden enjoying the stunning views towards the Fylde Coast.

Midsummer Barn is ideally placed for exploring many of the North West's attractions: Blackpool, Liverpool and Manchester are all less than one hour's drive away, and the historic towns of Clitheroe and Skipton, with their castles, are also within easy reach.

Public transport is available from the top of the lane, and there are three pubs locally.

We are proud to be a family-friendly cottage and have a large number of items available to use, including cots, high-chairs, etc - please feel free to ask.
Towels and linen are included
The cottage is a non-smoking property
Well-behaved pets welcome
Walking on the West Pennine Moors directly from the door
