About Yvonne Brown

As well as running the Holiday Cottage, we also run a small holding with pedigree Kerry Hill sheep, which you will see grazing in our fields. Lambing happens in April, so if you come then you may get to meet some of our newborn lambs.

Yvonne Brown purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Yvonne Brown chose Darwen

We are very family-friendly, with plenty of items available, including cots, high chair, stair gates, baby bath. Well-behaved dogs are also welcome.

What makes this cottage unique

Fantastic views across farmland towards the Fylde Coast - on a good day you can see Blackpool Tower - and the sunsets can be amazing.
