We have a huge selection of things that you can do during your stay at Isles Field Barn Bed and Breakfast. Based between the Fylde of Lancashire and the M6 motorway we are ideally placed as a stopover on a long journey up or down the M6. Stay with us for one night or a short break. Alternatively base yourselves with us and visit:

  • Blackpool
  • Preston
  • Flyde coast
  • Forest of Bowland
  • Lancaster

There are many activities that you can do during your stay at our Lancashire farm B & B.


If you are a golfer we are about a mile away from the Goosnargh Golf.  The 9 hole golf course has been developed to incorporate the natural landscape.  You can play 9 or 18 holes on this pay and play golf course. They have produced a course that  helps preserve the natural environment of the existing ponds and streams.  If you have an eye for nature you may well see some of the following:

  • Water shrews
  • Greater Crested newts
  • Brown hares
  • Stoats
  • Roe deer
  • Oyster catchers
  • Moorhens
  • Pheasants
  • Grey heron
  • Krestrels

If you are looking for an excuse for missing a two foot putt, you can always say one of the above caught your eye!


There is an extensive range of walking opportunities for people staying at Isles Field Barn farm house bed and breakfast. You have one of two options.

If you are looking for a suggestion – try one of my favorite walks around the charming hamlet of Abbeystead.


Cycling in the areaThe countryside around Isles Field Barn is great for cycling. Cycling National Route 6 is right on our door step (about 200 meters away). This stretch of Route 6 goes from Preston to Keswick. If you are feeling energetic Route 6 takes you from London to Keswick when it is completed. Regional Route 90 of the Lancashire Cycleway also links in to Route 6 at the end of Syke House Lane.

If you prefer off road cycling try Gisburn Forest. This area is run by the Forestry Commission and they are continuing to expand this popular centre for cyclists which currently has 16 kilometers of off road trails.

So, in summary, we are a great base for a cycling holiday.
