Where are we and things to do?

We are located in Lancashire between Bury and Burnley, about 15 miles north from the centre of Manchester. This is an area rich in natural beauty with rolling hills, rugged landscapes, lakes and shoreline all within easy travel. There is also a wealth of history to explore from grand country houses to cotton mills or local witches.
