Great Places to Visit When Staying at the Longlands Inn

Here at The Longlands Inn, there are so many great places to visit.  With stunning scenery, great hiking and walking routes, areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and breathe-taking coastlines. Not to mention, being a stone’s throw away from The National Lake District, the Trough of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales we really do have it all. Whether you want to sail in the sea, hike in the hills or walk the miles of undulating footpaths – the Longlands Inn can provide it all.

Extended Adventure

The duration of the ride will be different, depending on how many photos stops you might want, fitness and experience levels of the group and weather conditions, but typically our morning will start at 10 am for 2 hours, when we will stop for lunch, either bring your own, stop at a cafe or one of the many local pubs. The second half of the ride will continue to explore the hidden gems the area has to offer, taking in the views and enjoying the delights for about a further 2-3 hours.
