Dolphinholme Farm, situated on the edge of the Forest of Bowland, is only 20 minutes from the coast and not far from the River Wyre, making a swim or paddle a very inviting prospect! The big play barn is always a hit with children, and the 2 hour/mile treasure hunt is the perfect opportunity to explore the beautiful countryside here. Intrepid children can also tackle the orienteering course, which will teach them compass skills in a safe environment.

The Gorst family have farmed here for over 70 years. Today, they have calves to feed and pet as well as a menagerie of hens, ducks and rabbits. There’s also 4 Labradors called Raven, Musto, Millie and Proc, Meg the Jack Russell 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’’.

Right by Dolphinholme Farm is the Forest of Bowland, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which features a dramatic landscape of gritstone fells, deep valleys and peat moor and plays host to 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 put your local park to shame, with its straw bales, swing, sandpit and giant slide. The more adventurous can explore the farm’s deciduous woodland, which 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.

While staying at Dolphinholme, it’s easy to 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.
