A Romantic Break In the Ribble Valley

Enjoy some time with your loved one this Valentine.

With its rolling landscape that is rich in character and brought to life in literature, it’s easy to see why the Ribble Valley is one of the favourite destinations for a romantic getaway.

Here are a few ideas to make your Valentine visit more memorable.

Wander along the River Ribble

Meandering through the stunning Lancashire countryside, the River Ribble is the perfect setting for a wholesome walk with your loved one and a picnic on the river bank. With so many beautiful villages to start from ask one of our team for their favourite starting point. 

Reach a summit of Pendle Hill

Overlooking the Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland beyond, the views from the top are sublime. When you get back down to the bottom in the village of Barley you can even enjoy a well deserved pint of Thwaites at our sister property the Pendle Inn. Make sure you learn about the witches tales while you're in the area.

Enjoy the heritage of Salmesbury Hall

With it's fascinating history and beautiful gardens, a visit to Salmesbury Hall is the ideal destination for a laid back day with your loved one. With a delicious wafflery on site too there's always time for a treat. 

Switch off with nature

Do you and your loved one just need some peace and quiet to chill together? Brockholes Nature Reserve is perfect for you. Whether you book onto one of their star gazing nights, or just fancy watching some wildlife from their floating village, it's a lovely spot to unwind with each other.
