Here at Moss Wood Caravan Park, we know just how phenomenal the Forest of Bowland is. After all, we’re based right next to this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty! To many, however, this beautiful swathe of rural Lancashire remains a secret bypassed by the M6 on the way North to the better known Lake District.
It was with delight that we found out that the Forest of Bowland has been nominated as Holiday Destination of the Year 2018 in the high profile BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2018 alongside four other British destinations. It is recognition that is long overdue! With stunning countryside as picturesque as any offered in more crowded locations elsewhere, the Forest of Bowland AONB has a range of scenery from rolling hills, lush valleys, gritstone fells, peat moorland, and remarkable woodland. And to add to the charm, traditional English villages are dotted infrequently like seasoning across the landscape. It’s enough to turn someone to poetry!
Countryfile presenter and panel judge John Craven said:
“At the very centre of mainland Britain, this is one of the most unspoiled of all holiday destinations in the UK. Although I’m a little worried that by nominating it, it might become too popular!”
