Enjoy staying in a beautiful 3, 4 or 5 Star Gold self-catered holiday lets in the Forest of Bowland, a recognised Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Whether you’re looking for cosy home from home, a couples’ retreat or a luxurious Lakehouse, we can offer you well-maintained, welcoming holiday cottages, with luxury bed linen and towels inclusive.

The space
Off grid, lovingly restored barn conversion, set in 3 acres, with its own private lake & woodland. The Lakehouse is perfect for forest bathing and watching the multitude of wildlife that visits and lives here. Powered by the wind and sun, with water alkalised and filtered from our own spring on Burn Fell, this really is a place to reconnect with nature and those around you.

The ground floor in an open plan space with underfloor heating. The lounge is a combination of comfy sofas, leather reading chairs by the fire, and armchairs plus a giant pouffe facing the lake view window. The wood burner is a great centre piece for the beautiful exposed brick wall which has tiny windows, which frame the light, and are ever changing with the weather.

Full sky package is available which you can watch cinema style, with surround sound. We have a blue tooth connection, and speakers throughout the property so you can listen to all your favourite tunes wherever you like with the same incredible sound quality.

The professional kitchen includes, a large double fridge/freezer with ice and chilled water function, combi microwave/oven/steam oven, dual temperature wine fridge, induction hob, ESSE range cooker, dishwasher and instant boiling water tap. Our cupboards are full with all you’ll need to make use of this incredible space, from baking a cake to a more formal dinner party.

As you step out of the kitchen door, you are immediately in the outside dining area, making eating and socialising on a sunny day seamless. There’s a barbeque and luxury dining table and chairs, making this space an extension of the kitchen. The hot tub is also here with an outside shower to rinse off before you take a dip!

The sauna and wet room, which includes, rain, hand held and cold plunge shower is on the ground floor. We have a bedroom with a kingsize and single bed on this level, which is ideal for families, or customers who may need a carer on hand during the night. There’s a small laund

The whole house and grounds, other than Electrical Plant room (for safety and control reasons)

Other things to note
The Lakehouse is off-grid and self-powered by Solar and Wind generation, eco-friendly luxury. So please be mindful to turn things off when not needed.
Tesco & Sainsbury's will deliver from Clitheroe, while Booth's is our favourite supermarket there.
I regret this beautiful property is not suitable for pets, owing to fabrics & furnishings including wood-burning stove and antiques, & proximity of water areas. Should you wish to bring children, the owner reserves the right to have you sign a liability waiver on arrival.

Well, what can we say? A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step……and we walked 2653 to finally rest our feet at Laythams Farm. Last year we took a gentle stroll from Mexico to Canada along the Pacific Crest Trail. We lived in our tent, drank from streams and woke with the dawn each morning, so that we could walk…….and walk……..and walk. The planets must have been aligned when we discovered Laythams. A perfect solace for one who needs wide open spaces, quiet starry evenings and plenty of good walks! We love our new home so much and cannot wait to meet you, and share all the things that make this place so special to us!

The 16th century Longhouse, which has now been split into the Farmhouse, Cottage and Hayloft has been in the Wenner family for over 50 years, gradually evolving into what it is today. The Lakehouse, a truly unique labour of love, really reflects the Laythams ethos of living sustainably and within nature.
