Brief Description and Special Features:
This pleasant, attractive, interesting and friendly Venue is an extensive working Farm, rearing calves for Beef plus a very large flock of Sheep. The Breeds of Sheep (some 1500) are mainly Swaledales and Mules. The farm covers nearly 400 acres, which includes some Woodland, and is situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland which is Lancashire Fell/Moorland country, ideal for wild camping. In addition it has grazing rights over the Fell which it adjoins. The area is generally quiet and peaceful. It is well away from tourist routes and will be ideal for getting away from the "madding crowd". It will be a great camping holiday destination.
