3 things to do while the sun is still shining.
Look up to the sky, can you see it? I know, I know, it’s really here. The sun, in Britain. It’s not a myth, it is really here. But this is Britain, and we are all too aware of the temporality of such a treat. The majority of Brits are already rushing out with their bucket and spade, determined to soak up every little ray they can, because we don’t really know how long this is going to last. So while you are in Lancashire, staying in your comfortable room at Laythams, here is a list of things you can be doing.
It’s not far, it’s within walking distance really, and when you get there, you can enjoy a four mile circular walk around the grounds and through the surrounding woodland. It’s like walking through a fairy tale, enshrouded by a lush jade canopy, the sun beaming through. What could be more romantic than a picnic in the woods?
Clitheroe Country Market
A plethora of local producers get together to fill your bellies and show you what they can do. It’s a taste of the area. You can spend a few hours really getting to know the area, tasting the wares, enjoying a cool drink or two, and buying those much needed souvenirs to take back to the dog sitter, the neighbour, the kids down the road, Eric’s school friends, your mum….
The Great Harwood Loop
Fancy “cycling in to railway history”? Or just fancy a bike. The cycling route connecting Clitheroe to Blackburn has many historical points of interest on the way, and what better to enjoy those rays with a leisurely bike ride? There are plenty of places to stop and enjoy the view, or take down some chilled fluids. So while we still have the sun, while there is no need to be crouched under an umbrella, get out and see the world surrounding your luxury Laythams getaway.
