Perched above Whitewell in the Hodder valley, New Laund Farm is the perfect place to enjoy fresh air and fantastic views.. even if you can’t manage the hills as well as you used to.

Thanks to all-terrain scooters such as the Tramper, lovers of the countryside who have less mobility, can still enjoy the beauty of the Forest of Bowland plus the company of family and friends, thanks to a specially chosen guided route around the farm.

With help from Lancashire County Council’s Environmental Project Officer, the farmer at New Laund is once again hosting a series of Tramper trek sessions designed to help visitors enjoy the fantastic Bowland scenery and find out more about conservation work on the farm.

The Tramper treks are on Monday and Tuesday August 3 and 4, with a choice of morning or afternoon session each day.

Given good weather, the event allows groups to make their way to a vantage point high above the River Hodder where a fantastic panorama opens up. The sessions are free but Tramper numbers are limited so advance booking is essential.

Instructions for using the Trampers will be given on the day and tea and coffee will be provided. Family and friends are very welcome to join the walks which will involve uphill sections and uneven ground.

For more information and to book a place, please contact New Laund Farm on 01200 448246.
