Stunning 3 bedroom all en suite to sleep 6 in the rural North West of England

The Shepherds Barn is recently converted 5 star self-catering accommodation,very spacious with the highest level of comfort and design. It is situated in the picturesque rural valley of Quernmore of the Forest of Bowland. The views from the 'barn' are stunning.

Perfectly located, the Shepherds Barn is only 3 miles from the historic town of Lancaster, and within 40 minutes drive of the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and Blackpool by the sea, it is the perfect base for exploring the North West of England.

Inside there is a huge lounge/dining room with a central real flame gas fire. The kitchen has the extra warmth of a traditional farmhouse aga for cooking. There are 3 spacious bedrooms, all are individually designed, all are en-suite.

There is also a unique opportunity to watch the Sheepdogs, like those from 'One Man and his Dog'. And if you are really interested you may be able to try to work with them yourself!

Exceeds 5* Outstanding

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with this property. Beautiful location, barn was spotless.
Thomas done some sheep training with our two collies, think they are missing him and, his mop already.
3 days was not long enough to enjoy the barn and, all the sights close by, had No idea The Lakes, Blackpool, Cumbria was so close, even Lancaster town centre was only 3 miles away, yet it seemed like you was miles from anywhere as it was so peaceful & beautiful.
We Will be returning for a longer period.
Couldn't have stayed in a better place, it was great. :-)

Exceeds 5* in our opinion

  • 5 of 5
Spotlessly clean, lovely quiet tranquil location, the decor in every room is perfect, everything you need for a holiday is supplied.
Wouldn't believe Lancaster town centre is 3 miles down the road and, Windermere, Blackpool appx 40 mins drive, so peaceful seems like your miles from anywhere.
Thomas done some sheep training with our two collies although we was only there for 3 days, pampered pooches didn't know what hit them, had a lot of patience with my husband who kept running the wrong way.
Couldn't have stayed in a better place, sent photos over to the rest of the family who want to go up for a longer period....it was just great.... Thankyou so much.

Everything we were hoping for

  • 5 of 5
We had so much fun, and so relaxing a time here. The holiday started as soon as we got off the motorway and started driving through roads where you could pick blackberries from both windows at once. The children raced through the barn finding all the best bedrooms and different ways to get to the same place. My sister's Jack Russell raced manically round the walled garden, and the rest of us had a nice cup of tea by the aga in the kitchen.
We had the most glorious sunshine so never got to put the fires on, but the terrace was well used.

For food there are fresh eggs every morning from the farm at the bottom of the drive. There is a fantastically stocked farm shop about 5 minutes drive with wonderful meat - and then the kitchen has everything you could want to cook it to perfection.

Our best day out was when Thomas invited us to go to a sheep-dog trial he was competing in just up in the Lake District. It was a brilliant day with a few cars parked in a field, loads of dogs, belligerent sheep, venison sausages and Collie Wobbles beer. Best of all, Thomas got a new puppy which our kids fell in love with and didn't let out of their sight for the rest of the holiday. They were allowed to bring it round to get its first glimpse of sheep during a training session Thomas was running. We also had a very good day on the beach at St Annes.

The only thing I was sad about was that there was no pub within walking distance! Otherwise just perfect.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Are you stressed? Under pressure? Shepherds Barn is the place to be. The barn is absolutely stunning, we woke up each morning, looked out of the window to fields up on fields. We spent time with the owner, Thomas and his dogs. Thomas showed us how to direct the dogs with various commands. Thomas also spent some time with my own border collie Zak and gave us some useful training tips. My parents even bought one of Thomas's dogs, Ella, who is friendly and loving.

The barn itself is everything you can imagine and more. The pictures simply don't prepare you for the size and beauty of the Barn.

We look forward to our next visit.

First Class

  • 5 of 5
The Shepherds Barn is first class; it’s relaxing, very well furnished and is set in beautiful countryside. We have been twice now and certainly recommend staying here. It ticks all the boxes for us; its modern, comfortable, clean, warm, spacious, there is a walk in shower, a range cooker, a dishwasher and we can take our dog.

The owner Thomas is very friendly, caring and around if you need anything. Thomas will do dog training on the farm. Thomas has done training with our border collie Poppy and we are very pleased with the results. Poppy enjoys her time at the barn too!

The barn is an excellent base to explore the surrounding countryside, towns/cities, coast and the Lake District. There is a nice farm shop at the Lancaster Leisure Park on Wyresdale Road just 5 minutes drive from the barn and another not too far away on the A591; The Lower Sizergh Barn. Just one point to note; if you are driving to the M6 from the barn it’s quicker to head towards Caton than going through Lancaster.
