Booked this weekend away for my husband's 50th Birthday.. Absolutely beautiful cottage, situated in lovely surroundings. The cottage was spotless and little added touches like the box of cookies and complimentary eggs from the chicken were wonderful! The owners, Cliff and Claire, were so welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Even when we found our car wouldn't start in the morning - Cliff dutifully brought out his tractor and helped us on our way. Would definitely recommend staying here and would love to stay again ourselves in the not too distant future. Joanna, Southport.

This is a delightful property which mum and I both found extremely comfortable.. Accommodation was simple and tasteful with country tastes and extremely well equipped. The grounds of the farm are open to guests which adds to the interest and charm. Proprietors are very attentive but never intrusive. Location is excellent for coastal visits and country arts, crafts and food farms.

We have used Sykes before and had absolutely no problems so we knew we were in safe hands again this time too.. The cottage we stayed in this time was fantastic and we had a wonderful holiday.

We were visiting Lancashire overnight in November and were delighted when we found out that Barn Owl cottage was available. Its a fantastic cottage, beautifully restored to a high specification by the friendly and welcoming owners Claire and Cliff, who live nearby in the main farm house. Its really well equipped, with everything you could need for a short break, and is very roomy - more than enough space for a family of 4. If you're looking for a comfortable, super homely cottage located in west Lancs, then I'd thoroughly recommend Barn Owl cottage at Crook Hall Farm.

This was a lovely cottage, really well furbished and comfortable.. There is plenty around to do if you feel like being active, lovely walks and pubs, an extremely well stocked local farm shop with a butchers. One thing I would say is that this is a working farm so there is some noise, didn't bother us much but it starts pretty early so if you like a lie in take some earplugs :)

The picture did not do the property justice.. Great pub just down the road for food and drinks.

We stayed in early June 2016 and had sunny weather from the moment we arrived to the day we left. A lovely cottage located on a working farm with exceptionally friendly Claire and Cliff who were always available to help with questions and recommendations. Property was lovely and suited our young family of 4 (son aged 3 and daughter 21 months). Wifi speed of 4mbps was great for a little bit of internet access when looking up what to do on our stay. Trips out to Blackpool, Chester Zoo, Southport etc. Eagle and Child Pub 2 minutes away and a lovely local farm shop called Owd Barn well worth a visit. 10/10 recommendation and will more than likely come back for another stay. THANK YOU Claire and Cliff

A lovely property run by a very nice family who made you feel very welcome indeed. There were chickens running round outside the front door, horses stabled next door and we watched the hay being brought in from harvest. Would recommend this property to anyone and may well come back and stay again in the future. Thank you to the owners for a great week.

From the beautiful appearance inside and outside, the warmth and charm of welcome from all (whether 2 or 4 legged) we loved this and our earlier visit (May) this year. Which is important after the long journey for us, from the Netherlands. Each time we have had some of my UK family join us and the cottage has excelled all expectations and truly met with our needs. We highly recommend the cottage and hosts Cliff and Claire .. but at the same time would love to keep it a secret, so it can be free 365 days per year, just for us!!

I've stayed in both cottages at Crook Hall farm and they're both beautiful. Barn Owl is a converted barn and I love the layout with it's big windows and skylights. The owners have also decorated the interior with lovely touches like a reclaimed wheel from a carriage, and overall the cottage feels very homey. The owners are great and gave us all the help we needed to make the most of our stay. I'd definitely recommend for a family or group of friends.

My family (two young children, husband and parents) stayed in both cottages at Crook Hall Farm in July 2012 for two weeks and it was truly amazing. The working farm was always entertaining for the children with the horses, chickens and tractors! The cottages themselves were beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable. Located a short drive from a major highway made getting around easy. Having a pub and gourmet food store 300m down the lane was an added bonus. Our hosts were so kind and generous and made our stay easy and enjoyable. I would, and have, recommended Crook Hall Farm to anyone travelling to England. My only regret is taking 10 months to write this review!

A wonderful cottage, a real home from home.. Excellent standard throughout, even a washing machine and dishwasher! Outside the front of the cottage there is a beautiful sun trap where there is patio furniture to sit and have a glass of wine watching the world go by.

This was one of the best cottages that we have stayed in. It has only been open since March and everything was in very good condition. We would stay here again. We received a warm welcome from the owner.

The cottage was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything needed for a perfect mini break. The owners were friendly and helpful, and delighted to give information about the locality. There were fresh eggs in the kitchen and local biscuits left out which helped to create an all round homely feel.

We have just had a long weekend at Barn Owl Cottage and found the cottage almost perfect We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and helpful.We have stayed in quite a lot of cottages and this is one of the best.Yes the road is busy but it did not spoil our break, the weather was not too good so we did not sit outside. The cottage is well equiped and has almost everything that you could want. We would recomend this cottage to family and friends

This is a very pleasant holiday cottage, clean and comfortable, I could not fault the interior of it, and the owners are friendly and helpful. if you just want a delightful base to go exploring then this is ideal. Unfortunately if as I do, you like to sit outside to maybe read or dine with a nice glass of wine, then this cottage falls short. The entrance and small patio area are just feet away from a BUSY road. I expected the occasional farm vehicle etc but there was a constant stream of cars, horse boxes, lorries, even a double decker bus passing as well as hikers and cyclists just the other side of a small wall. Even inside you could feel the heavier traffic passing. A lovely cottage just not what I'd hoped for in a country holiday as I have that amount of traffic on a daily basis at home, so will not return.
