Clitheroe CastleThe ancient market town of Clitheroe in the Ribble Valley is a perfect place to stay for visitors wishing to explore Lancashire’s Forest of Bowland, one of England’s 36 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). With its extensive range of accommodation including B&B’s, hostels, self catering and camping and caravan sites, your visit to Clitheroe can suit your budget and preferences. Clitheroe actually dates back to Saxon times so by the time the imposing 12th century Norman Castle that towers over the town had been built, Clitheroe had already been around for nearly 1,000 years! Clitheroe Castle, said to be the smallest Norman castle in England, is now home to a Museum and 16 acres of landscaped gardens, which houses attractions to appeal to every age group.
