If you want a complete escape from the stress and strain of modern life, a holiday at Higher Gills Farm could be just what you need. Situated at the foot of Pendle Hill, Higher Gills Farm offers magnificent panoramic views of the Forest of Bowland, and the Ribble Valley from your accommodation. In the distance can be seen the high moors of the Yorkshire Dales including Ingleborough and Penyghent. Also you can see across to Malham Moor and Malham Cove and the Aire Valley, and then over into Wharfedale.

Higher Gills Farm is surrounded by the villages of Barley, Downham and Gisburn, and close to the historic market towns of Colne, Clitheroe, Settle and Skipton. A working farm, Higher Gills is run by the Pilkington family, rearing beef cattle and sheep. The farm provides an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area, which is excellent walking country. Numerous footpaths run through the farm and onto the moors and nearby villages.

Beautiful sunsets can be admired of an evening in a tranquil setting of peaceful countryside. With no light pollution you can enjoy some of the finest night sky's you will ever see.
