Campsites in Lancashire
Situated in the north west of England, Lancashire is bordered by the sea in the west and the Pennines in the east. It’s a county steeped in history and legend. Although a largely rural area, the landscape is dotted with industrial towns – a testament to Lancashire’s industrial past.
Situated south of the Forest of Bowland, this campsite is tranquil, peaceful and close enough to the Lancashire coast to make a day trip highly worthwhile. The site has a riverside setting, which provides some lovely walks among nature, you can also ask at reception for information on day permits for fishing.
The Ribble Valley Sculpture Trail exhibits the work of local artists and the nearby Pendle Hill has spectacular views; if the weather is good you can see all the way to the coast. Other attractions nearby include Knowsley Safari Park, the Imperial War Museum North and Brontë Parsonage Museum.
