Have just returned from one weeks stay. After reading previous negative reviews I must say that my experience could not have been more different. Firstly our tent was very clean. Our hot tub and shower equally as clean and a lot of fun to use even if it did take a long time to heat. My husband got a great sense of achievement from tending the fire for four hours! We did have lots of flies but nothing my sister and a can of fly spray couldn't sort out! (This was bought from Wilkinsons and not the honesty shop)
My children aged five and seven thrived from their new found independence, playing in the play barn, collecting eggs and making new friends.
This is a holiday were everything takes twice as long to do and climbing the nearest hill to get a mobile signal is a must.
If you are used to living life in the fast lane do not visit Dolphinholme. If you want a retreat from modern day living then this is for you.
We will definitely return .
