- Entire chalet
Crown Lodges are located in the Heart of the Rossendale valley- Crawshawbooth. There are three lodges in total all situated around a 140sq/m lodge with breath taking views, it is the perfect escape to the country. The site is brand new and was built by owner and host Sam through the covid-19 pandemic 2018-2021 with his keen eye for building, the site is loved and adored by many of the locals and has proved a massive hit so far. Maple cove located to the top right hand side of our site features a large 28sq/m decking area. Enjoy beautiful nights in your hot tub from this natural beauty spot, our lodges have something for everyone and we believe they are all-in luxury. They feature luxury kitchens, luxury bathrooms, log burners, free standing bath upstairs next to your bedroom area and everyones favourite a 2mx2m hot tub. Tip from us-Be ready with drinks in the hot tub for when it goes dark, the site lights up like something you see when your abroad and looks incredible, you can see our site from the other side of the valley which we think looks amazing. Crown Lodges is situated on a public footpath which has miles and miles of walking, for all of you that enjoy a stroll. We recommend downloading the walking app Komoot and downloading the local pack which is priced as much as a small coffee, this is like google maps for walking enthusiasts. For local things to do, I think we are up there with the best. Our local town Rawtenstall has undergone major development in the last couple of years and is getting better and better all the time. We have Rawtenstall market which has been taken over and turned into a food heaven. Once a month it has 'foodie Friday' and is packed with local stalls selling street food and deserts. Then we have Avuccirea, fire pit, La Turka, Tiger lounge and GemNi just to name a few. All providing excellent quality of food and drinks. We have a variety of bars, pubs and cafes too, far too many to mention. We are also 40mins on the x43 bus to Manchester City centre and the bus stop is within 15mins walk from our site (big hill back up not for the faint hearted). We also have the very last temperance bar in the country Mr Fitzpatrick's established in 1899 which recently featured on the hairy bikers, this is 100% worth a visit. Ideal for couples looking for a quiet getaway but still close to exciting things to do, this brand new development is your number one hot spot for 2021. Once you come you will not want to leave, from experience our site looks so incredibly different every season. We have fantastic summers and snowy winters. **Please note- We do not allow dogs at these particular lodges**

Your guide to Lancashire
Welcome to Lancashire
Rolling countryside, rich regional cuisine, and Britain’s most famous pleasure beaches are just some of Lancashire’s delights. Its place at the heart of the Industrial Revolution can be seen in the brick-and-chimney legacy of its former factory towns, whose mills, workshops, and warehouses are now often museums or canalside flats. The county town of Lancaster, overlooked by a medieval castle and resplendent with Georgian architecture, combines centuries of history with vibrant city life, including a renowned coffee quarter.
But 80 percent of Lancashire is rural, where you’re likely to be stopped in your tracks by breathtaking scenery that spans moorland, rivers, and hills, none more beautiful than those in the Ribble Valley. The county’s pretty villages have become something of a food-lover’s paradise, full of award-winning gastro pubs and restaurants, while the 557-metre Pendle Hill remains a magnet for hikers and history buffs alike (it was here that England’s most famous witch trials were held). To the west is a coastline stretching from the stunning-yet-treacherous Morecambe Bay to the bright lights of Blackpool.
How do I get around Lancashire?
Lancashire is served by Manchester Airport (MAN), which connects by train to many of the region’s towns; there are also ferries to and from Ireland at its ports. The rest of the United Kingdom is within easy reach. A fast train service can get you here from London within a couple of hours, and there’s a good rail network operating across the region that connects most towns, as well as coaches and local buses. To explore the countryside, you might want to rent a car for more flexibility. But there’s public transport within the Ribble Valley and the villages, and many of the towns are small enough for walking. Taxis can be hailed across the region, and rideshares in the towns. An excellent cycleway links 81 miles of coast around Morecambe Bay.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Lancashire?
The summer offers more sunny days and less rain, making it a popular time to visit Lancashire, though the county can be fairly wet year round. Summer is certainly the time for exploring the beaches and braving the sea, and there are lots of events to choose from, including popular music and food festivals. But the countryside is equally beautiful in spring and autumn. In March and April you’ll find the Ribble Valley full of newborn lambs as well as spring blooms. The famous Blackpool Illuminations — when the seaside town of Blackpool is lit up for the winter — run from September to January. Preston hosts a wonderful arts festival, Lancashire Encounter, in September. Winter can be bone-cold chilly in this northern region, but there’s a special pleasure to be had in Lancashire’s cosy welcome if you’re escaping the cold.
What are the top things to do in Lancashire?
Trough of Bowland
The entire Forest of Bowland is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and this is one of its very prettiest bits. The pass at the head of the valley reaches 300 metres above sea level and offers dramatic views across richly coloured moorland that leads to the picturesque village of Dunsop Bridge. To the south of the valley lies Longridge Fell, which offers its own spectacular vantage point looking out to the Lake District.
One of Lancashire’s best-kept villages, this lovely community faces west toward Pendle Hill and is a great place from which to explore the area. It has its own pretty view overlooking the valley of Pendle Water, as well as the locally famous Stansfield Tower, a stone Victorian folly perched above the village.
With windswept headlands and golden beaches, Morecambe Bay is a spellbinding sight offering a range of experiences. You can explore nature at its wildest in its nature reserves, enjoy traditional seaside fun in its Victorian towns, or get involved in all manner of outdoor sports from paragliding to kitesurfing.
