Things To Do in Clitheroe, Nr Low Moor
The historic market town of Clitheroe is home to a Norman castle dating back over 800 years. Constructed at the top of a limestone rock which formed over 350 million years ago, the ruins of the castle and its grounds are fantastic for a wander with your four-legged and the views from the top make the climb worth the effort.
There is also a museum within the castle which houses exhibitions detailing the history of the town and rooms created so you can step back in time to the Victorian era when textile mills drove the economy of the town. The castle has an excellent café for coffee, tea and light snacks. The town’s high street is a great place to shop for those who like to spend some time on holiday in the local shops.
There are lots of independent shops here including a fantastic 130 year old wine merchants still located in the original Victorian shop, a butchers shop which has over 75 different types of sausages on sale and a specialist local coffee and tea merchants.
The sandy beach and amusements of Blackpool are less than an hour away by car or one hour and 30 minutes by train. One of Lancashire’s most popular seaside resorts, Blackpool is all about fun for all ages. The annual Blackpool Illuminations event sees the city in a new light, one million light bulbs to be precise.
Six miles of the promenade are bathed in light and the seaside’s famous Blackpool trams also get a makeover with trams touring the city dressed in their own sparkling lights. Blackpool Tower and its famous ballroom are favourites for all ages as are its beaches, some of which allow dogs all year round.
The Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Natural Beauty is a half hour’s drive from the cottage and is the place to go for outdoor adventures. A wide range of activities is on offer here, from walking in its remote moorland with incredible views to cycling along the specially created cycle paths or fishing in its crystal clear lakes and fast-flowing rivers.
Maximising on space, Albion Cottage has been brilliantly renovated from a former blacksmith’s cottage to create a cosy holiday cottage for a couple and their canine friend, just around the corner from the town’s high street with shops, bars, restaurants and a pub.
With easy access by car to the sandy beaches of Blackpool and pretty Victorian seaside towns of Lytham Saint Annes as well as Kendal in the Lake District, the cottage is a brilliant base for exploring the Ribble Valley and further afield.
After a day exploring the area and tucking into ice creams by the sea or climbing to the top of Blackpool Tower, settle down in the cosy living room with your feet up, light the wood burner, pour a glass of wine and enjoy a good book for the ultimate in holiday relaxation.
