Surrounded by glorious, unspoilt landscapes, there are opportunities for everyone to enjoy in the Ribble Valley. From shopping and entertainment, to history filled family days out exploring the Ribble Valley’s rich heritage and great places for food and drink, to walks in the countryside and quiet, idyllic villages just waiting to be explored, the Ribble Valley has hundreds of attractions waiting for you.

The bustling market town of Clitheroe is a Shopping haven and a dream to those who dislike mass-market produced goods. Brimming with individual shops and historic treasures you wouldn’t usually find on your everyday high street, Clitheroe is the perfect place to pick up a gift for that tricky someone or simply a place to treat yourself from the eclectic range of shops on offer.

We are extremely lucky to have such a fantastic array of local Food and Drink suppliers right here on our doorstep in the Ribble Valley. You can savour the fresh flavours of tempting treats and feasts as Clitheroe develops as Lancashire’s Food Town and the annual Clitheroe Food Festival, which takes place in August, is a must-visit for foodie fanatics!

If being in the great outdoors is your thing the Ribble Valley has plenty to offer for cyclists of all abilities from gentle cycle routes that take you down quiet country lanes to the challenging Forest of Bowland which offers fantastic mountain biking for the more experienced rider.

If you enjoy country walking where better to discover the stunning high moorland scenery and beautiful riverside walks. And, with a fine variety of good hostelries where better to end the walk than with a hearty meal by an open log fire. And of course many of our village pubs welcome dogs too.
