Forest of Bowland
Once visited, you’ll agree that the Forest of Bowland is a true jewel of the English landscape. Proud possessor of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, this stunning part of the country offers you inspiring landscapes 24 hours a day, 360 days a year. Whether you’re out for a lazy afternoon drive, a stroll through heather-clad moorland, or powering up a muddy cycle track, this magical setting is the ideal place for a green getaway.
Got the kids with you? Why not stop in at Cobble Hey Farm and Gardens and introduce them to the resident farm animals and wildlife? You’ll all love indulging on their scrumptious home-made treats and playing hide and seek in the spectacular gardens.
The Forest of Bowland is dotted with picturesque villages like Scorton. Make a stop off here for lunch at the welcoming Priory Inn or walkers favourite The Barn. Both have great spots to sit out and enjoy the slow-pace of village life. Fuelled up, you’ll be raring to get out into the hills and forests, fields and river banks – just waiting to be discovered by you.
