Activities

Teeing off in Lancashire

Lancashire is adored for its rolling emerald fields, and that makes it perfect for one of the UK's biggest exports: golf. Whether you're a passionate enthusiast or simply want to master a new sport on vacation, Lancashire vacation rentals give you all the opportunities you need. There are major golfing destinations in the area offering outstanding course views, including the scenic Ribble Valley, the Flyde Coast to the west and the breathtaking natural wonder of the Pennines.

Weather

Lancashire can give you elements of all 4 seasons in a day, with gathering clouds snapping to rays of sunshine falling from the blue heavens. Luckily, Lancashire rarely gets extreme temperatures so it's pleasant to visit all year round – with its warmest month in July, or you may even luck out with a picture-perfect snow-filled Christmas break.
