- Remote and rural Lancashire site in a peaceful forest clearing
- Roughly a mile from Stocks Reservoir; Settle railway 25 minutes' drive
- An accredited Dark Sky Discovery site; café open seven days a week
Gisburn Forest Hub is a simple site set in a forest clearing in a remote part of eastern Lancashire. Surrounded by trees and roughly a mile from the edge of Stocks Reservoir, guests staying here can look forward to inner peace and seclusion – including after dark, as this is an accredited Dark Sky Discovery site.
Gisburn Forest Hub is also the gateway to some of this area's best and most adventurous mountain bike trails (although there's a variety of routes to choose from if you're holidaying with guests who have limited range). The area is full of fab walks too, as it lies on the edge of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a short drive from the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Amenities here include a café that serves drinks and snacks seven days a week, a beer garden and a toilet and shower block (new units open for summer 2021). A short walk away, there is also a forest glade with an outdoor performance space – head here to see arts and music events on weekends.
In terms of location, Gisburn Forest Hub is handily located about three miles from the small village of Tosside (where there is a tea rooms), 25 minutes’ drive from Settle and its scenic railway route to the Lakes or half an hour from Clitheroe and the river Ribble.
Please note, due to the location of this pop-up campsite there may be midges around; repellent is available to purchase in the café if required.
