Holiday cottages in Bleasdale are surrounded by deep valleys, gritstone fells and peat moorland. This remote village is located in Lancashire’s Wyre district, in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It lies on the banks of the River Brock, amid farmland and rugged hills. With a population of less than 200, it is a quiet, rural community, perfectly suited to visitors who want to make the most of the surrounding countryside. The village is little more than a couple of narrow lanes, dotted with farm buildings and cottages, and lined with hedgerows. Despite its modest size, the parish is home to several interesting landmarks, including a fine parish church, a Bronze Age earthwork, and Bleasdale Tower, which dates back to the early 19th century.
