The Boothman Park Estate

Boothman Park Estate

Boothman Park nestles under the largest hill in the Pennine range ‘Pendle Hill’. The park can offer you a variety of recreational activities amongst outstanding landscapes, rivers, lakes and forests. It’s a place where you can escape from the pressures of life and enjoy a peaceful time in the countryside.

Based in Barley, near Burnley, we offer coarse fishing, specialising in large carp and bream. We serve the areas of Manchester, Burnley, Blackburn, Leeds, Bradford, Keighley, Preston, Blackpool, and surrounding areas of Yorkshire and Lancashire.

The park offers a variety of activities . As well as the coarse fishing on the large carp lake, we offer accommodation, bird and deer watching and  nature walks including the historical trail, Heys Lane, which winds between the villages of Roughlee and Barley.

The Ecology

On the lower slope of Boothman Park is a deciduous woodland and the higher slopes of Heys Lane Plantation (being part of the Boothman Park Estate) is a conifer woodland. This leads to a variety of wildlife which use the woodland. Visitors to the park can enjoy the wildlife, flora and fauna on offer and also record their own observations.

The fully residential authentic log cabins and fishing cabins are built from timber extracted from our own forest, with minimal carbon footprint and  are available to hire.

Youth groups and other organisations are encouraged to actively participate in the appreciation of the site. This means there will be an incentive for visitors to use Boothman Park during all seasons of the year.
