At Shreyas Cottages we have partnered with Visit Lancashire which provides daily updated information about what there what events are on and things to do in the local area at different time periods. One of our personal recommendations from our own team here would be the Barton Grange flower show held in early August every year. A lot of the plants that you will see at our complex are sourced from here as we continually pride on promoting green tourism by helping local businesses. Please see below a link which will provide further details on current events.
