Clitheroe is a sweet little town in the north of England in the Ribble Valley. Complete with a historic castle, quaint pubs, and beautiful country walks, this is a great place for a little weekend getaway.
We had the chance to take the train down to Rishton and Clitheroe recently, which is just outside of Blackburn in Lancashire. You know, of the 10,000 holes. My husband’s family lives there, and he was thrilled to get to spend a bit of time back in his hometown and visit some of his family members he hadn’t seen in years.
Clitheroe is a the cutest little suburb I’ve ever seen. We took a stroll through the castle grounds then wandered down to the Edisford Bridge. My sister-in-law also took us for a walk along the river behind her house. They just let you walk through anybody’s field here, apparently, and the cows don’t seem to mind at all.
If you should find yourself in this charming town, I suggest you pop in to The Emporium for lunch. I had a tasty ham and cheese panini and was sorely tempted by the cheese and pate platter. This restaurant is also half antique shop, so lots of the furniture and decor are for sale. It’s not cheap, but it’s definitely pretty.
Clitheroe is a sweet little town, and I hope I’ll get to show you a lot more awesome places in the future. As long as my husband doesn’t get too annoyed with my constant photo snapping. Stay awesome, kids.
