Enjoy a self-catering Valley Holiday in the Beautiful Trough of Bowland: The Trough of Bowland is a valley (968 feet above sea level) in Lancashire. Its location lies within the Forest of Bowland, which is an idyllic place for a country cottage holiday. Walking and cycling are popular activities here.


What Trough of Bowland offers for Self-Catering Breaks

Staying in The Trough means a tranquil holiday, and exploring the surrounding area will lead you to pretty villages, moorland covered in heather, woodland and riverside walks. It’s also a great place for bird watching, especially when moorland birds come to breed in the springtime, such as peregrine falcons. A good example of a picture postcard village to visit in the locality is Abbeystead. Another is Dunsop Bridge, which attracts lots of hikers. In fact, this area is referred to as ‘Little Switzerland’. However, there are circular walks that would suit the average family. You can buy duck food from the village shop to feed the ducks in the river!

Whether you choose to stay in a thatched country cottage or a large country house, we hope you have the best of times in the Trough of Bowland.

Book a Trough of Bowland cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Lancashire on holiday.
