The Forest of Bowland is one of the last remaining upland wildernesses in England – a 300 square mile rural oasis where visitors have the chance to escape the ‘chatter’ of the 21st Century and tune in to the slower rhythms of nature.
The landscape of the Forest of Bowland is the result of hundreds of years of human influence and is of national and international importance because of its unspoiled and richly diverse landscapes, wildlife and heritage, with outstanding heather moorland, blanket bog and rare birds.
The area’s resourceful hill farmers are responsible for building and maintaining the dry-stone walls, wildflower meadows, country lanes and outlying barns that are so characteristic of Bowland.
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 open 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.
