Eco-escape to Browsholme

How often do you reflect on the fact that, whilst you live in England - you've never really explored what's on your doorstep? Well we do, a lot!

The variety our little island holds is really quite astonishing, with stunning coastlines, ancient woodland, moorland and mountains; the exploring possibilities are endless.

With this in mind, Discover Bowland are championing eco-escapes to our beautiful Forest of Bowland (an area of outstanding natural beauty) where you're encouraged to arrive, swithc-off in nature and leave your worries behind you, and explore everything Bowland and Lancashire have to offer.

Whilst it's somewhat impractical to ditch your car altogether, from our Woodland Glade you can get to some award winning gastro-pubs on foot via. one of the fabulous circular routes that take you to the Whitewell, or to Waddington where there's the Lower buck, Higher Buck or Waddington Arms to chose from. Go on a food tour with Bowland and Bay or a cookery course at Dale House Barn - before getting some fresh air by strolling through our stunning countryside. You can explore the Trough of Bowland by bike - or head up into the hills towards Slaidburn. Whatever you chose to do, sustainability is at the heart of the project, and the team at Discover Bowland have composed some itineraries to help you plan your visit.

Our Woodland Glade availability has also now been opened up on AirBnb, or you can just email us on to book your short break.
