Brief Description and Special Features:
This pleasant, attractive, interesting and friendly GGAC venue is a small working Farm situated at the foot of the Pennines. It is generally quiet and peaceful. The owners produce free range eggs, breed Shetland Sheep and have a small Herd of Large Black Pigs. There is a well-stocked small coarse fishing lake. (Fishing is an extra charge). Numerous Footpaths surround the farm and criss-cross it, so it is ideal for walking. The footpaths link it to the Pennine Way and the Rochdale Canal, both of which are close by. It is well away from tourist routes but, at the same time, it is near some special places to visit (see below). It will be a good camping holiday destination.
