Nestling in a pretty, wooded glade, at the end of a half mile private road this small group of properties are surrounded by open farmland, which is managed under the guidelines of the Countryside Stewardship Scheme and situated in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Due to their effort to be environmentally friendly, the owners achieved a Gold Star Standard Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Heating and hot water are supplied by a central boiler fuelled by wood chip, and all lighting is by low energy bulbs. All cleaning products are made on site from natural materials.
Free range eggs and garden produce can be purchased when available. The cottages and farmhouse have all been comfortably furnished to a high standard and provide excellent holiday accommodation, which is personally managed by the owners and their family. Well maintained the cottages all have their own patios, which then merge into landscaped gardens, making this an idyllic and peaceful setting for a rural holiday.
On site, there is a 10 x 5m heated indoor swimming pool, a games room with table tennis, pool table, table football and children's' games as well as a full-size snooker table. A tennis court and 7 a side football field provide entertainment for the more energetically minded but for those with peace and quiet in mind an afternoon by the stream can be most relaxing. Holidaymakers have access to the farmland, through which there some very pleasant walks. For the more adventurous the Three Peaks are on the doorstep where the open fells and moors provide a superb backdrop for more stunning scenery. Close by is Gisburn Forest, where there are many way-marked cycle trails and walks. For mountain bikers, there are some excellent new trails in the Gisburn Forest which are suitable for all levels. There is secure bike storage and bike wash available on site. There is also coarse fishing on Stocks Reservoir and fly fishing on the River Ribble.

We have stayed in four of the cottages over the last 13 years, (one of which is no longer available as a holiday let) and always had a great time. The owners are wonderful, so willing to help in any way. The facilities, especially the pool, are great. Mrs Joan Clark - 30th July 2018
The properties we rented last weekend at Lower Gill were fabulous. We received a warm welcome and the site was very relaxed. The swimming pool a real highlight. In terms of equipment it was outstanding....even down to fishing nets for the kids to use down at the stream. Would highly recommend particularly to large groups and close to lots places of interest.Victoria Andrews - 20th September 2017
The property was beautiful and excellently equipped for a big family gathering. The owners and their family were sooooooo lovely, friendly, helpful with every query. The onsite games facilities were fantastic, especially as the weather kept us housebound. The pool was clean and beautifully warm even at eight in the morning. All my family and our visitors that week loved the place and all agree it was the perfect venue for our week of wedding preparations and celebrations. Thankyou so much for having us. jo portingale - 8th August 2017
WE had the time of our lives. The accomodation was fit for purpose and bedrooms very clean. But this did not detract from the great time we had.The location and facillities were stunning and we cant wait to return. I found the booking experience painless and due to the nature of my booking (3 cottages 19 people) I felt that sometimes I was a pain but all staff treated me in a friendly and helpful way and went the extra mile .Mrs Gina McMahon - 7th July 2016
