Welcome to Bank House Cottage



Beautiful cottage with hot-tub and sea views. Sleeps 4/5.

This was once a Fishermans Cottage for over two hundred years but has now been re-furbished to a very high standard. 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. *Please ask about our special breaks (i.e.) Honeymoon, engagement, valentines, anniversary or birthday all with a bottle of Prosecco and beautiful handmade chocolates.*

Most special requirements can be catered for.

All beds are made up for your arrival and towels are supplied for your stay. Most rooms have under-floor heating and the lounge also has a log burner with the first basket of logs provided free of charge.  (Additional logs may be purchased from us if required.)

Beautiful well kept large gardens to the front and rear.  Driveway with ample parking for two cars.

NOTE: A winter supplement will be charged between November and March if extra heating is required.  All our guests receive a welcome pack on arrival.  Sorry no pets. No smoking.  Couples and families only.
