One of my favourite local places to visit that is FREE.

Published on February 19, 2019 by theshippon

One of my favourite places to visit locally is Beacon Fell Country Park. It really is only a few minutes drive from The Shippon Luxury Holiday Let and is FREE day out . It can get busy during the holidays in the summer its lovely to take a picnic and have a seat on one of the many picnic benches dotted around the park.

The Beacon Fell Country Park consists of 110 hectares (271 acres) of woodland, moorland and farmland. The Beacon Fell summit is 266 metres (873 feet) above sea level and offers spectacular views of the Forest of Bowland and Morecambe Bay. On a clear day it is even possible to see the Isle of Man.

There is an abundance of wildlife for those who are prepared to be observant. Rabbits and hares are frequent and are easily spotted. Roe deer are a little more elusive, but patience may well be rewarded! Stoats and weasels can be seen running across the road or clambering over the dry stone walls. As many as 11 species of dragonflies and damselflies may be seen around the ponds during the summer months.

There are numerous walking trails to suit all abilities, there is also a cafe where you can enjoy a hot lunch or an ice cream or just coffee and cake. The visitors centre also hosts events and exhibitions.

Pleae have a look on trip advisor or visit lancashire for further details.

One of our recent guest reviews :-

Our second visit this year and once again we had a very relaxing and peaceful stay. This time we went for a long walk through Beacon Fell- an amazing country park literally 5 mins drive away- both us and the kids really enjoyed.
