The village of Downham in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lies at the foot of Pendle Hill, close to the thriving market town of Clitheroe. It is often hailed as the most beautiful village in Lancashire, with unrivalled views unspoilt by overhead wires, satellite dishes, roadside signage and TV aerials.

The Assheton family is responsible for the village and surrounding well-managed estate. The manor has been in the family’s ownership since 1558 and has passed through a direct male line of the Assheton’s since 1680.

This small but thriving community offers the visitor an acclaimed gastro pub with rooms – the Assheton Arms - and, in Summer and clement weather, a friendly ice cream shop near the village’s car park and village green. The Village Hall organises a range of social events and welcomes visitors to Downham to them.
