Well......we have just arrived back from our trip to dolphinholme. A brilliant time was had by all. Our party was my wife and I and our 7 year old daughter. Being a man I thoroughly enjoyed poking with the fire. Forget watching top gear the fire is the best entertainment a man could ask for. We really got into the spirit of country /farm life. The farm owners were really friendly and helpful they really went out of their way to show us around, engage with the kids and even cooked our pizzas last night which were great. We enjoyed playing in the river, the play barn and exploring the woods. The local pub The fleece was a good lunch out. Without wishing to sound too cheesy it really was like going back to when I was younger (a lot younger) and kids would just go off make friends and PLAY for hours on end. No games consoles no phone connection (seriously not even a text is possible and forget Internet) no TV. Just playing, chatting and meeting new people. I may still have my post holiday rose tinted specs on but I can't recommend this place any more highly. I have been on all different types of holidays in numerous countries. This is definitely one of, if not the best holiday we've had as a family.
Put lots of fire lighters on the fire before you try and light it
Girls there isn't really a spot to plug in your straighteners in the showers however if you take a travel adaptor you can plug the in a shaver socket or use a sneaky socket in the shop - sorry Barbara
In short it's brill
