Walking / Cycling / Fishing
Please email me at if you have
any information to be included in the list below.
We are so lucky to live within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We are blessed to have access to Gisburn Forest (full of bike trails, walking paths and the Gisburn Forest Hub Café), Stocks Reservoir which is favourite for fishing and walking, and some of the most beautiful scenery in all of the UK!
Cycling or hiking along and over the fells of the Hodder Valley, exploring the walking trails, watching the wildlife in their natural habitat and fly fishing in the River Hodder, there is certainly something for everybody.
Below is a list of website links to walking routes, cycling and fishing information.
I hope you enjoy discovering all that the Hodder Valley has to offer.
