Escape to a simpler life with Sally and James

An estate that also serves as a gateway to the unspoiled charms of the Forest of Bowland, Wyresdale Park is every adventurous child’s idea of paradise. Sally and James cannot wait to welcome you into this corner of Lancashire, their “land that time forgot”, a total retreat from the modern world, despite the short drive from Manchester and Liverpool. Your tents are sheltered by the woods and look out onto a private lake, evocative of Swallows and Amazons, the ideal spot for a family holiday in Lancashire.

A breath of fresh air by the water

Be sure to explore the Tolkien-esque beauty of the Forest of Bowland. Wyresdale Park is also a springboard to the world-renowned Lake District, with Lake Windermere a forty-five-minute drive away. Sitting on the banks of the River Hodder in the neighboring valley you will find the nationally acclaimed Inn at Whitewell, a foodie paradise. The drive itself is stunning, and offers plenty of photo moments as you pass through lands owned by the Duke of Westminster and the Royal Family.

What to do at Wyresdale Park

Although there is plenty to explore beyond the gates of the estate, there’s more here than enough to keep everyone busy and relaxed. Boating jetties, swimming, football, rope swings - a real adventure playground.

And James and Sally have ensured there is outside expertise on hand to make your adventures at Wyresdale Park are even more memorable. There are courses laid on in woodland archery, green crafts, open water swimming, beauty and wellness.

Treat yourself to some of Sally’s treats at the Walled Garden Café as well as a retail studio offering unique homeware and gifts.

In the evening, relax in your private hot tub and soak up the country air. Get together for dinner time and rustle up a delicious stew on the wood-burning stove or your campfire before retiring for a blissful night in your warm comfy bed.

What a fantastic setting for a family holiday! The children enjoyed boating on the lake, the rope swing and toasting marshmallows on a campfire. They also loved the hot tub, which heated up a lot quicker than we expected. We were warmly welcomed and everything was well explained so we could quickly settle in to the experience. It was an adventure that we can’t wait to do again and so booked for next year as soon as we arrived home!!!!

A fab break away from it all, kids had a ball and didn't once complain about anything to do!They loved the lake and hired one of the boats for the day as well, we had everything we needed for our break, will bring torches next time as we forgot to pack them but was fine without. Had wood there for us for the stove and hot tub and just bought extra at a good price for the next night.Hot tub takes a couple of hours to heat up and fill for the first time so would recommend doing that straight away. They have frozen water bottles to put in the box for you to keep things cool as well, brilliant idea!Enough room to sleep 8 people as well and the tents are spacious as well, 2 people have camp beds in another smaller tent that also has a selection of games in it.Loved the stove inside and cooking on it was fine, all utensils and pans and kettle provided as well. The shower outside was great, does give you hot water and was great to sit out on a night by the fire pit near the lake and we were lucky to get one of the tents that was opposite it's own little pier onto the lake.Families and couples will absolutely love this place, a true get away from it all place.

Had an amazingly chilled time. Suitable for all ages. Thoroughly enjoyed by all including children aged 15,16 and 20! Had moonlight dips in the lake followed by a dip in the hot tub. Walked up the Nicky Nook and visited the farm cafe which serve delicious food. The tents are very secluded and private so you don't notice anyone else is there. Neil the farmer was very helpful and always on standby in case you needed anything

Stunning, peaceful location. The tent, hot tub etc was exactly as we have come to expect from Featherdown sites. Having our own boat on our own private beach all week was amazing, the kids spend most of the week either swimming or rowing around the lake. Neil was brilliant, he was available anytime dealing with request for extra pillows and kindling. A wonderful week away.

A fabulous experience using the wood fire stove and wood fire heated hot tub. A great family bonding experience in a beautiful location.

Feather down is like nothing I’ve experienced before. Our family had some much needed quality family time and felt mikes away from the real world.

Terrible. Tents in no way fit for purpose when nights are still at sub zero temperatures, particularly dangerous for young children or anyone with health conditions. We had to sleep in car and leave after the first night.

We enjoyed our holiday, however, we would have liked to have known in advance that extra wood, kindle and firefighters was chargeable - this wasn’t mentioned in our welcome pack/holiday documents, and you do use a lot of wood to heat the stove and hot tub.

We had a wonderful stay despite the rather miserable weather. The lodge was situated very close to the jetty and the children loved exploring the area. A very peaceful holiday filled with long walks, campfires and lots of ice cream!
