Beacon Fell might be one of our standard bedrooms, but its beautiful original features are by no means standard! Like every room at The Fleece Inn, you’ll be treated to a king sized bed, flat-screen television and luxurious bathroom, but Beacon Fell also boasts a beautiful original beam along the centre of its ceiling, taking you back to the days when The Fleece Inn was merely a barn.
Beacon Fell Country Park (this bedroom’s namesake) is a wonderful 275-acre expanse of moorland and conifer woodland. The summit of the fell is around 873 feet above sea level and offers fantastic views of the Forest of Bowland and Morecambe Bay; on a bright day, it is possible to see as far as the Isle of Man! However, it’s not just in daylight that the park offers special views; Beacon Fell was recognised as a Dark Sky Discovery Site in 2016, meaning that budding astronomers can enjoy something spectacular in the evenings too. The park is also a popular destination for wildlife lovers, with many different species populating the surrounding forest.
There are several trails, all varying in length and aesthetics; from short strolls to astounding viewing points, to long treks through the forest, there is something for all ages and abilities. When you’re done exploring, there’s a quaint little visitor’s centre and café by the car park where you can learn more about the area and enjoy some refreshments. In-keeping with an eco-friendly theme, the visitor’s centre boasts a prestigious gold standard awarded by the Green Tourism Business Scheme (GTBS).
So, after a long day of rambling up and down Beacon Fell, we recommend stopping over at The Fleece Inn for a good drink, a hearty meal and kicking those walking boots off to enjoy a luxurious night in our very own Beacon Fell.
