Hiking Routes

The Chicken Shed is situated on the North-Western side of Pendle Hill, surrounded by public footpaths. You can start hikes straight from your doorstep to climb Pendle (see photo), or take short drives to destinations in Bowland or Pendle for a different type of view. Regardless of your preference, our big soaking tub will ease your sore muscles at the end of the day.
