One pub which I believe was more of a restaurant ten minutes walk away, ...

Re: Forst of Bowland campsites?

I’d suggest Google it and ring round, quite a lot of them are shut or full. We struggled to find a site for three nights next week, although admittedly not in that area. Yeah, that's what I have been told too.... Wonder whether I can get a passout and head to wildcamping heaven instead.. and cross ...
