Ribble Way Accommodation and Other Services
The Ribble Way is a 70 mile long-distance path which traces the full length of the River Ribble from its estuary on the Lancashire coast to the source deep in North Yorkshire limestone country. There are fine pastures and open spaces, but accommodation and public transport is never too distant. Ribble Way Route Map.

Notes on Ribble Way Accommodation
We have split Ribble Way accommodation into Hotels & Inns and Bed & Breakfast. We use the word Inn in its true sense of a pub which provides accommodation, rather than just a romantic name for a pub. Guest House accommodation is included with Bed & Breakfast. While we realise many guest houses are better than some hotels, in order to avoid confusion we have opted for the simpler option.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Ribble Way accommodation recommendations.
Ribble Way Restaurants and Pubs
We have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants along the Ribble Way, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.
Ribble Way Public Transport
We have given public transport information on the relevant location pages. However, to assist in the planning of the route, and especially to help those walking the Ribble Way in separate stages, we have also placed all transport information and links on a single page: Ribble Way Public Transport
Ribble Way Circular Walks
We welcome suggestions for circular walks along the Ribble Way. Please give us as much info as possible, eg distance, refreshment stops, description etc and we will add a map and a link.
