About Sandra

little old me grew up mainly in Lancashire but travelled around a bit due to my dads work, my title would be manager but a better description would be 'general sort out everything manager' in a bar & restaurant with a little bit of property lettings. I strive to make things better - so I am open to comments to improve.

Sandra purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Sandra chose South Ribble District

Fabulous cottage which I lived in for many years - I love its features the original 1907 stone stair case to the high beamed vaulted ceilings but it has a contemporary feel to it. I had fitted a unusual large french cast iron bath which is a luxury in itself, a new cream log burner has just been fitted and is a focal point to the open plan living area. Gas central heating throughout with instant hot water combination boiler.

What makes this cottage unique

5 minutes to the motorway networks, M6, M61 & M65 - 1 min walk to gym, pool and childrens play area.

lovely Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious cottage. Well furnished and very cozy. Would have enjoyed a little garden at the back to be able to let my dog out without worrying about her getting out into the car park. Although there was a gate I felt unable to let her out without standing watching in such a much used public place.. plenty of walks to take her but useful to be able to just open the door .without concern. Thank you for a very pleasant short break

Gorgeous quirky cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely time myself and my family had spending Christmas in Lancaster Cottage! The landlady is amazing and was there to meet and greet us. She had even provided some necessities for making a cup of tea or coffee which was very welcomed. The cottage was very clean and homely and the kitchen was well equipped. If I was to make one small suggestion it would be to consider installing a washing machine for ease! The location of the cottage allows for ample parking and having that huge park at the back was amazing for my kids! I couldn't fault this property and Sandra is the perfect host! I would definitely recommend this property as it is close to Bamber Bridge high street (10/15 min walk) near train stations and motorway links, close to the leisure centre and park (1 min walk) and Sandra provides a comprehensive welcome pack with local hospitals, things to do and take away menu's!! Thank you so much for a pleasant stay!

Curious cottage in unusual location

  • 3 of 5

A curious cottage in an unusual location (in the leisure centre car park - plenty of parking available). Beds comfortable, bathroom enormous although hand-held shower difficult to control. But all went well and we and our small dog enjoyed the birthday party weekend.

Our location is next to a lesuire complex with gym, pool, classes and a huge outdoor childrens play area. It is a semi rural setting and although close to a leisure centre , its a quiet place to be.
