Walking and Cycling at Root Farmhouse B & B
You only have to step out of our front door to be in some of the finest walking country in England. The Forest of Bowland is an undiscovered gem for the walker. The Hodder valley has quiet country roads and riverside meadow paths with spectacular hills providing a backdrop. Those hills provide more challenging walking but the rewards are fantastic.
