This family-run dairy farm on the western edge of Lancashire's Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is one of the justifiably popular Feather Down Farms, offering you and the kids a glamping break or holiday during which you can experience farm life close up, whether on a tour or by helping to feed the animals. At Dolphinholme you can even assist in milking the goats and watch them give birth, and there's a stream to paddle in, a playbarn and a great honesty shop.

You stay in safari-style canvas tents with toilets and log-burning stoves for cooking. Some come with added 'frills', including a private hot tub, an outdoor shower, a veranda and a hammock. Pets are welcome but need to be kept under close control near livestock.
