Review: What Lizzy Loves

“The two day Pendle Witch Tour is absolutely fascinating. For just £325 per couple, lunch, dinner, bed, breakfast, afternoon tea and of course, the fascinating tours are included. It was thoroughly enjoyable, very informative and something different. To stay in a beautiful hotel with an award-winning restaurant and glorious views is something to behold and I recommend it wholeheartedly. It is fabulous and is excellent value for money”.
