Activity Holidays in the Forest of Bowland

In recent years, many people have rediscovered the importance of a seeking a deeper connection with nature for their wellbeing.

The Forest of Bowland is one of the last remaining upland wildernesses in England – a rural oasis where visitors have the chance to escape the ‘chatter’ of the 21st Century and tune in to the slower rhythms of nature.

Villages and settlements are few and far between, commercial activity and tourist attractions are minimal and mobile phone coverage remains patchy.

In other words, Bowland is the ideal destination for a refreshing retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city to reconnect with nature.

Walk for miles across the lonely moorlands with expansive views out over the Yorkshire Dales and Morecambe Bay or cycle on traffic-free quiet lanes. Lose yourself among the wild uplands and rocky outcrops of millstone grit or immerse yourself in the intimate valleys where nature flourishes through the seasons.
