Stunning views, quiet lanes, wildlife and the famous Lancashire coastline with spectacular views of Morecambe Bay and the Bowland Fells are all there to explore. When the author J.R.R Tolkien first set foot in Ribble Valley in the 1940s he uncovered a landscape of wide, rippling rivers, deep wooded conifer groves and misty green Lancashire countryside and he never looked back. Indeed it is said that became his inspiration for ‘Middle Earth’, with the places he visited often finding their way into the famous Lord of the Rings trilogy. Today, the area is fast becoming one of the UK’s finest food destinations with quality country inns, Michelin starred restaurants and a huge variety of local artisan food and drink producers. Popular towns and villages include Clitheroe, Longridge and Whalley. For peace and quiet by the sea, the Fylde coastal towns like Lytham and St Annes offer ideal retirement opportunities and are increasingly embracing the cafe lifestyle with boutiques, coffee shops and restaurants. Other leisure pursuits include several championship golf courses, including the famous Royal Lytham & St Annes, and a strong equestrian tradition in the Ribble Valley.
