Pocket Guide: Clitheroe Forest of Bowland Hotels

After reading about its extensive industrial heritage, railways and old canals, you could be forgiven for thinking that Lancashire must still be a region of coal fields, textile factories and 'dark satanic mills'! You couldn't be more wrong, as the county has more in common with neighbouring Lakeland now than with its industrial past, and times have really changed in these parts. Visit the area today, stay at a smart Lancashire hotel or guesthouse and explore what has become something of a Garden of Eden in the northwest. Nature reserves, areas of outstanding beauty and parkland like the Forest of Bowland are now the order of the day, and environmental awareness reigns supreme.

Lancashire Hotels for the Forest of Bowland

Also known locally as Bowland Fells, the Forest of Bowland is a pristine natural region of deep river valleys, gritstone fells and peat moorlands in the north-east part of the county. It extends a little bit into North Yorkshire but its main areas are in Lancashire, and it attracts visitors who enjoy fresh air and unspoilt scenery throughout the year. Encompassing open moorland, gently sloping lowlands and a multitude of dry stone walls, with attractive villages and taverns every so often, it's a delightful region to explore as a walker, rambler or cycling enthusiast. There are lots of birds and other indigenous wildlife to enjoy in their natural habitats, and some of the villages such as Downham haven't changed much since the 16th century. Arriving here from your Lancashire hotel or guesthouse, you'll find that the Forest of Bowland is a world away from the lights and action of Blackpool.

Rambling in the Forest of Bowland with Lancashire Hotels

Pendle Hill is a popular spot for climbing to the summit and enjoying splendid views of the Forest of Bowland and the Ribble Valley. The film version of Whistle Down the Wind was filmed in Downham in the 1960s, and neighbouring Slaidburn has a lovely heritage centre with a rare 10th-century angel stone. Discovering this area from the comfort of your Lancashire hotel is like taking a trip back into England's green and pleasant past.
