Situated at the foot of Pendle Hill, Higher Gills Farm offers magnificent panoramic views of the Forest of Bowland AONB, and the Ribble Valley. The farm provides an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area and offers excellent walking opportunities. Higher Gills is a stock rearing farm, with sheep and cattle. Visitors are welcome to help feed and collect eggs from the hens, which run free in the orchard. During the lambing season visitors can help feed the lambs and see lambs being born.
'To help us make our accommodation as environmentally sensitive as possible we are members of the Green Tourism Business Scheme. We try to encourage our visitors to be greener by providing information and ideas for low impact activities and providing holiday experiences directly from the farm. We also extend that commitment across our farm – some of our land is managed through the Countryside Stewardship Scheme which recognises our efforts to manage it in a way that encourages wildlife and preserves the natural beauty of the countryside.'

What's green about ....
At Higher Gills we extend our principles of sustainability both through our visitor accommodation and through the management of our farm. Across the farm we have planted new hedgerows and manage existing hedgerows to encourage wildlife. We have also recently incorporated a bird hide within the woodland for visitors to experience the wonderful wildlife close up, in this idyllic spot. Owner Freda has a great interest in breeding rare Teeswater sheep and produces many wonderful wool products.
