Greenlands Farmhouse is a spacious holiday home sleeping up to eleven guests in five bedrooms, ideally placed in the picturesque small Lancashire village of Wrea Green. Perfect for a reunion of friends or a family gathering, this impressive house offers a high standard of self-catering accommodation and welcomes short breaks all year round, making it an ideal venue for celebrating a special occasion. There is also a two bedroom annex sleeping four that can be rented at the same time to accommodate larger parties of fifteen (please enquire about prices).
One of Lancashire's finest and best kept villages, Wrea Green is beautifully appointed around a village green with large duck pond where cricket is played during the summer months. Enjoy a pint or meal at The Grapes pub or The Villa (a large wedding venue and hotel), tea and cake at Dizzy Ducks or a meal at Orathai Restaurant for a more oriental experience. Ribby Hall holiday complex and wedding venue is also located in the village and conveniently just a short walk from Greenlands Farmhouse offering a health club, spa, gym, nine hole golf course, horse riding and choice of eateries.
With its thatched cottages, Wrea Green is the perfect setting for doing as much or as little as your heart desires on holiday. Relax in the comfort of the farmhouse with friends or family, or venture further afield and discover the many attractions of the area.
Bustling Blackpool is under ten miles away with its glorious vast sandy beach and abundance of attractions including the Sea Life Centre for an underwater adventure (why not snorkel with sharks!); Blackpool Zoo for a fun day with the animals or Blackpool Tower (Lancashire's very own 'Eiffel Tower') which has been entertaining people since 1894 with a circus, ballroom, dungeon, indoor adventure playground and 4D cinema - something for everyone! Staying close to the water, Lytham St Annes is another coastal gem to visit with its beautiful countryside and lovely beach - a great place to step back in time and enjoy some traditional seaside fun.
For those happy to travel a little further afield, The picturesque Ribble Valley and Fleetwood with its renowned lighthouses are under half an hour away or head to the bright lights of Manchester (forty five minutes) or the Lake District which is just over an hour. The choices are endless!
