Pendle Walking Festival is a week of free guided walks catering for all abilities, including children usually held at the end of August beginning of September each year. Click here for more information .

We have developed a circular door-to-door walk in conjunction with The Forest of Bowland team and Janet and Ken Sharp at Height Top Farm Cottages at Higham.

We have secure storage for cycles or motorcycles in a farm building with a roller shutter door. Also cycles can be stored in the utility room of Cobden View. If you have a puncture, need a cycle pump or fittings to fix your bike, then we have them too.
