It is 2017 and what a year 2016 was for the cottage! and us of course, ha ha.  We did not quite get the Lancashire Tourism New Business Award but, do you know what we are not so upset, as the competition was amazing.  Since my last blog we have had so many amazing reviews which makes me think we are doing it right – but I can promise you we will not rest on our laurels.  We have to keep ensuring we are looking at what we need to do to improve and make the cottage more desirable than anyone else’s in the area – any thoughts would be great and welcomed – please email.

We are expanding our portfolio and have just purchased a cottage in Gisburn which again sleeps 3.  The Gisburn cottage is opposite the church and has amazing church views.  I will send you all the details soon including a 10% discount if you book through the website for all guests who have stayed at School House Cottage – if you are reading this and have not stayed at the School House contact me and I am sure I can do the same deal for you.

Once again we have looked at the facilities and the Church View Cottage in Gisburn is only a minute walk from La Locanda which wins more awards for their food than The Parkers – yes how amazing is that.


We have decided to stay at Church View in Gisburn whilst our kitchen is being fitted so will be able to make sure that everything, again like School House Cottage, is up to standard and what we would expect if we were the guests.

So how has Christmas been for you?  It has been amazing for us and Caroline and Donald who stayed over Christmas were great guests who left a fabulous review which is brilliant – see the website for full review.

So what is your New Year Resolution?  Well mine is to lose weight, do more exercise and continue to enjoy life and what it brings.
