M6

Brockholes is a nature lover’s paradise on the site of a (huge) former quarry. The visitor village is one-of-a-kind: strikingly modern and floating on the water. Here you’ll find an informative visitor centre, activity room and good value café where you can fill up on simple, home-cooked dishes – full breakfasts, boiled eggs, jacket potatoes with homemade coleslaw, fresh soups and minced beef cobbler – while enjoying panoramic lake views. Pop in to the ice cream parlour for scoops of Lancashire ice cream before exploring the network of well-signposted paths around the expansive 250-acre site and the large adventure playground.

Shop at The Nest where you’ll find a good range of gifts and local crafts and you’ll be supporting the work of the Lancashire Wildlife Trust too.

The parking charge applies to everyone, regardless of how swift the visit, so it’s worth making it a longer break.
