Dolphinholme

Lancashire, Lancaster, LA2 9DJ

Dolphinholme, on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, is also only 20 minutes from the coast, and near the River Wyre, making a swim or paddle a very inviting prospect! The big play barn is also a big hit with children as well as the 2 hour/mile treasure, hunt much loved and acclaimed and which will open eyes to the beautiful countryside here. There is a children's orienteering course now too, across the big field in front of the tents so the children can tackle it safely by themselves while learning compass skills.

The Gorst family have farmed here for over 70 years. Today, they have calves to feed and pet in addition to their menagerie of hens, ducks, rabbits and 4 labradors Raven, Musto, Millie; Proc, a Jack Russel, Meg; and Harriet the cat. It’s very easy to fall in love with the place, so it’s hardly surprising that the Rough Guide to Camping in Britain quoted from the guest book: “This is the greatest holiday ever and I want to work here when I’m older’’.

By Dolphinholme, the Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, features a dramatic landscape of gritstone fells, deep valleys and peat moor that hosts a rich variety of upland bird-life. This farm is a fantastic natural playground for young and old alike. The play barn behind the tents will leave your local park in the shade, with straw bales, swing, sandpit and giant slide. The more adventurous can explore the farm's deciduous woodland that provides ample opportunities for den-building. The honesty shop is well-stocked to sustain you: don’t forget to try the farm's delicious cheese, yummy on some fresh bread.

You can easily take a trip to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland and the funfairs of Blackpool. The historical city of Lancaster is also nearby, as is Morecambe with its promenades and fabulous views across the bay.

We are the Gorst family and we've farmed here for over 70 years. Father and son, John and Mark, farm in partnership with Barbara and you'll receive a warm welcome from us all on arrival at Dolphinholme House Farm.

Hope to see you soon, John, Barbara and Mark
