ECO Escapes – Sustainable Short Breaks in the Forest of Bowland

Eco Escapes are all about travelling light and treading carefully in the stunning Forest of Bowland National Landscape. They are about leaving the car at home and taking the time to explore new places by public transport, on foot or by bike. They are about discovering the area’s wonderful natural environments and the wildlife that makes its home there.

Above all, Eco Escapes are about making connections: between town and country; between visitors and residents and between people and nature.

Eco Escapes connects this beautiful landscape to the rest of the county in a more sustainable way, enabling eco-conscious visitors to refresh, recharge and revive with a sustainable short break in the area’s beautiful green spaces.
