- Rural campsite in Lancashire's ancient Forest of Bowland
- A 10-minute drive from Longridge and Chipping
- View fells & valleys Dark Skies & Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
What would you say to a stay in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Free from the sound, light and air pollution of the city, the ancient Forest of Bowland in Lancashire is a top candidate for quiet getaways, and Higher Mosserley is surrounded by just such peaceful countryside near the forest's southern edge.
Set among country lanes and far-reaching views over the surrounding area's fells and valleys, this family-friendly site is in a secluded spot, two miles from the nearest B road and about a 10-minute drive from Longridge and Chipping (the latter is said to be one of the prettiest villages in Lancashire, so make sure to take a look). The bunding around the farm also creates a safe haven for wildlife, with curlews and tawny owls among the species you might spot.
The facilities at Higher Mosserley are simple, with just a toilet block, but well-behaved dogs and properly supervised barbecues are allowed. Time your evening meal with the sunset and then stick around to enjoy the stars, which are particularly impressive in this recognised dark skies area.
This is a quiet site with no noise between the hours of 10pm and 8pm, so there are no large groups and no loud music permitted. Guests are requested to respect the families around them, especially those with young children.
For pubs, shops and supermarkets, head to Longbridge; there is also a farm shop and garden centre on the way (five minutes). As an alternative, Chipping has two great pubs and a couple of cafés.

To avoid unsuitable roads, first go to Longridge and then use your satnav to navigate to the site. When you progress onto Height Lane, the site is the first farm on the left (look out for the sign at the top of the drive). On arrival, please go to farm house for check-in.

The centre of the United Kingdom is said to be at Dunsop Bridge, a pretty village 20 minutes' drive to the north. On your way there, you'll pass Bowland Wild Boar Park (20 minutes), a fantastic family day out by the banks of the river Hodder.
For open-air explores in the local area, you could head to Stonyhurst College (20 minutes), where JRR Tolkien once lived and worked, and set out on the Tolkien Trail through the gorgeous Ribble Valley. Alternatively, there are the dedicated cycling paths and café at Gisburn Forest (40 minutes) or shorter loops around Beacon Fell (10 minutes). Those interested in fishing, meanwhile, can get stuck in at Barnsfold Fishery (five minutes), a well-liked angling spot just up the road that specialises in trout.
A day out in the historic city of Lancaster (40 minutes) should be next on the agenda if you're staying for more than just a few days – make sure to see the castle and its dungeon, which held the famous Pendle witches before their trial. A little further up the M6 brings you to the coast at Morecambe (45 minutes) or the South Lakes (it’s an hour to the southern tip of Windermere), which can often be glimpsed from the top of nearby Beacon Fell on clear days.
