If you’re an active family and you enjoy a good hike, then Pendle Hill in Lancashire could be the next destination on your list. The walk up to Pendle Hill starts from the picturesque village of Barley. It’s about 8 km to the top with some steeper parts, but there’s nothing the kids can’t handle, so it’s a great route even for beginners.
Blessed with clear blue skies on your day out? Well, then you’re in for a treat because the views from Pendle Hill are absolutely stunning! Not to mention that this particular spot is tied in with all sorts of fascinating historical moments. From the witch trials to Richard Towneley's barometer experiment - there’s a lot of stories you can tell the kids on your way up and down.
Since Pendle Hill opens such breath-taking scenery, it’s a wonderful place to have a picnic, when the weather is nice and warm. If you don’t mind carrying packed lunch up the hill, you can have a family meal with views to die for!
