The Big Camp

This summer, Gisburn Forest Hub will host a pop-up campsite to the public.  Pitches will be restricted to a limited number of glamping tents hire in the early summer (June 23rd – July 23rd) before we increase capacity for the school holiday period between July 27th and August 31st.  We extend a warm welcome to visitors of all ages to enjoy our sumptuous location for an exclusive camping experience, beneath the dark, starry skies of Bowland.

We already attract day visitors from far and wide to enjoy some of the UK’s most challenging mountain bike terrain. Now, adventurers can stay longer, bask in the beauty and enjoy our hospitality. 

In addition to general camping during the school holiday weeks, we will be growing our arts and culture offer by hosting events on the summer weekends.  By working in collaboration with a number of event organisers, educators and musicians, our events programme has been created to regather north west based arts and music communities badly affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Please note that weekend events will affect availability on the camping meadow and some weekends will be a little more lively than others with music into the evenings, check in with us in advance for more information.
