A Beautiful cottage with HOT-TUB and sea views.
Sleeps 4/5, this was once a Fisherman’s Cottage for over two hundred years
It has now been re-furbished to a very high standard.
Beautiful well-kept large gardens to the front and rear. Driveway with ample parking for two cars.
Located 100 metres from the beach at Thurnham Moss / Cockerham Sands. Close to the estuary of the river Lune and south-end of Morecambe Bay with views across Morecambe Bay, the Lake District Mountains and the Forest of Bowland. A very secluded and peaceful position three miles from the main road. Surrounded by horses, sheep and cows.
We are at the beginning of a seven-mile coastal walkway with Cocker Sands Abbey only ¼ mile away. Close by is Glasson Dock where you can buy “Smoked Fish” from their “Smoke House” or watch the yachts sailing in through the lock into the marina with its swing-bridge.
The dock is still used by a handful of small cargo vessels which can often be seen coming in and out at high tide. This area is steeped in history with Thurnham Hall once owned by the Dalton family at the end of our lane, the castle at Lancaster where witches were brought from Pendle Hill to meet their fate at Lancaster assizes.
It is rumoured that cottages along this coast were once used for smuggling which might explain our window being halfway up the staircase overlooking the sea.
Our cottage is ECO friendly with a ground-source heat pump and Solar Panels. Most special requirements can be catered for.
*Please ask about our special breaks (i.e.) Honeymoon, engagement, valentines, anniversary or birthday all with a bottle of Prosecco and beautiful handmade chocolates. *

Just returned from 4 nights stay here and would highly recommend it to anyone. The cottage itself is absolutely gorgeous, clean, and spacious. The hottub is amazing as well as the views. Veronica and Alan were brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome, and offered their help in places to visit. We will definitely be visiting again
Surprised my fiancée with a long weekend away. From the very first contact made with Veronica nothing was too much trouble. A little surprise package was set up as a romantic treat, bubbles, flowers, chocolates and rose petals. She had even gone so far as to find a little card with a picture of a nurse on as she knew that was her occupation. So very sweet!
We arrived after dark and were thrilled to find the cottage was absolutely immaculate, we are ridiculously fussy I’m afraid and would rarely rate anywhere 5* for cleanliness, we would award this to Bank House Cottage without hesitation.
We were excited to open the curtains in the morning to find breathtaking views, the sea, rolling fields, horses right in the garden. Chickens in their run (we were gifted a dozen fresh eggs on our departure, they are fabulous!£
The hot tub is right on the decking outside the conservatory. It is also immaculate. You can see that the owners take great pride in their holiday home, nothing is too much trouble for their guests. Alan and Veronica are two of life’s genuine people. A rare find. We shall most definitely be returning to this little corner of Lancaster heaven! Thank you both for a superb stay.
