Vendors View

We moved here over 18 years ago, it is so peaceful and tranquil, it's just beautiful listening to the birds during the day and the owls at night whilst sitting out looking across the fells from our elevated location. We are right in the heart of Gisburn Forest. We are keen mountain bikers/ E bikers, and we ride straight out of the driveway onto the purpose-built mountain bike trails in and around the forest without ever touching tarmac! It's in such a fabulous location that we have even hosted product launches and demo days for world leading mountain bike manufacturers. The area also attracts many cyclists and walkers who love to enjoy this Area of outstanding natural beauty. We hope that you will love it just as much as our family have done.
