Where the heart of Lancashire beats

After the magnificent hillside walks afforded by Lancashire's vacation rentals, you'll want to explore the area's sights and sounds. Start off at Wilpshire, a village so quaint you'll imagine you've stepped back in time – and taste a delicious Lancashire craft beer at the local pub. Soccer fans amongst you? Book a game at the Macron Stadium, home of the Bolton Wanderers, and feel the passion in the terraces for England's most adored sport. Kids will fall in love with Mrs Dowson's Farm, which allows them to look after cute lambs and calves, before relishing Mrs Dowson's melt-in-the-mouth ice cream.

Experience the seasons in Lancashire

Those English fields don't stay green by themselves, and this part of the world gets some rainfall. April is typically the driest month, when you'll also get to admire the rainbow blooms, pink blossoms and heady scents of the first days of Spring. Lancashire can give you elements of all 4 seasons in a day, with gathering clouds snapping to rays of sunshine falling from the blue heavens. Luckily, Lancashire rarely gets extreme temperatures so it's pleasant to visit all year round – with its warmest month in July, or you may even luck out with a picture-perfect snow-filled Christmas break.

Views to inspire in Lancashire

Lancashire is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with sweeping vistas that have inspired travelers throughout the centuries, from poets to legendary heroes. The highest point is the great mountain Gragareth, which includes the Lost John's Cave network within its climb. The Pennines, described as the "backbone of England", give an opportunity for more gentle walks, with wild moors of heather at their top. Or follow the rivers running through their ancient valleys to the spellbinding Irish Sea coast. Look out for buzzards soaring overhead, badgers in the hedgerows and even friendly sheep wanting to share your lunch.
