Top Locks Cottage is a lovely former Canal Worker's Cottage situated on the banks of the Leeds Liverpool Canal in a beautiful conservation area. Overlooking fields and canals, the cottage is stunning in all seasons and is a perfect base for exploring the area. Ideal for a family or couples break with two king bedrooms and a large bathroom with bath and shower. There's a cosy log burning fire, a fully equipped kitchen, pet-friendly fenced garden, car parking, and keyless entry for self check-in.

The space
The cottage has all home comforts, 2 King bedrooms, car parking, and a TV with Sky (plus Sky Sports) Netflix and Wifi for cosy nights in front of the fire after a day exploring the area. You can enjoy complimentary tea and coffee, and try your hand at making lattes with the Nespresso machine.

Available for guest use are luxury Neptune products in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as conveniences such as hairdryer, towels and many home comforts. There's games and toys available for kids (and those young at heart!) as well as a curated Lancashire Library featuring tales, authors and recipes from the county.

There are several walks right on the doorstep of the property, and the area has always been popular with locals and visitors alike. There are also plenty of cycling routes nearby. The Ship Inn is on the opposite side of the canal bank, and boasts a fantastic reputation in the local area for serving quality food and beer. If you fancy a night in, an honesty bar is available with wines and spirits.

There is a keypad on the front door for easy self check in and parking available right outside the front door.

We are pet friendly, as are many of the pubs in the local area, including The Ship Inn opposite!
