A Lancashire Escape Retreat

A Lancashire Escape

Join us on a weekend of walks, swims, relaxation and luxury. In a world of witches and hobbits we will dive into the world of Tolkien and folklore combined with elegant accommodation and dining.

We will guide you through a time away from it all with a relaxed itinerary that will leave you refreshed, inspired, learned and excited to have experienced new things.

Meeting and making new friends along the way together with great memories.

Oh yes and this is very dog friendly.


  • Arrive Friday pm to a meet and greet reception, a buffet and drinks to break the ice.
  • Saturday – A walk of the Tolkien Trail. Follow in the footsteps of J.R.R. Tolkien as we take a hike guided by Paul through the area where the author wrote much of Lord of The Rings. See some famous landmarks as well as some of Lancashire’s finest nature.
  • Mid walk there will be an opportunity for wild swimming under the guidance of Zoe in a beautiful spot on the river.
  • Saturday evening – Zoe will encourage gentle creativity as you make a sketch from your favourite photo of the day’s walk. We will also have private dining where we can relax and look back on the day.
