Enjoy a break in one of our Lune Valley holiday cottages and discover the timeless landscapes and old stone villages of rural Lancashire, tracing the steps of poets Ruskin, Gray and Wordsworth. It’s almost as if nothing has changed and you’ll be swept away from the modern world.
Walking in the Lune Valley
One of the best ways to explore is on foot, so leave your boots next to the door of your Lune Valley cottage and get ready to ramble. Meander along the riverside and soak up the scenery. Break for refreshments at a welcoming pub and pop your head into an interesting old church. Follow the well-trodden, 17-mile ‘Lune Valley Ramble’ from Lancaster to Kirkby Lonsdale, passing the Lune Millennium Bridge, the Lune Aqueduct, Hornby Castle, Devil’s Bridge and the Crook O’Lune – a shepherd’s crook-shaped bend in the river, where Turner painted one of his finest. It’s also worth mentioning the Studio Arts Trail (late May, early June), when local artists showcase their work. Or book a cottage in the Lune Valley and follow the 37-mile ‘Lunesdale Walk’, promising views of South Cumbria, Ingleborough and Morecambe Bay. Cycling is another option and you’ll find a good network of routes throughout the valley.
If you’re holidaying with children, riverside picnics are always a favourite and two of the best sites are at the Crook O’Lune and Bull Beck. Or time your cottage holiday in the Lune Valley around the Wray Scarecrow Festival in May, with scarecrow parade, funfair, samba and bonfire – guaranteed to put a big grin on every little face!
