Bowses Hill Farm: Grass pitches

General

  • Family-run 10-acre farm site with woodlands just outside Blackpool
  • A 25-minute drive to Blackpool Wake Park and Blackpool Zoo
  • Logs available to buy; firepits and barbecues permitted; shop nearby

Everything outdoorsy runs strong at Bowses Hill Farm, a family-run dog-friendly site with the tender touch of owners George and Charlotte, two big nature and outdoors lovers. It’s certainly nature-packed here, as the 10-acre farm is in a rural patch outside of Blackpool, and it has opened up its land for like-minded, keen explorers to get back to nature within the woodlands.

You’ll be going down a privately-owned lane, tucked away… and once you're on site, there’s a nice mix of the homely and the wild. The owners want you to really appreciate nature, so an afternoon may look like wildlife spotting, den-building or searching for hidden tree drawings in the woodlands – or perhaps getting your hands dirty with some bushcraft activities or picking up wood and logs for a firepit.

The site still has cosy creature comforts though, including a smart toilet/shower block opened for the summer 2021 season. There are logs available to buy from the site so that you may get a fire or barbecue going for some wild cooking, being sure to be mindful of their location, away from other guests and disposed of correctly.

This is a wildlife haven with a peaceful stay in mind, so guests are asked to be respectful of the woodlands, leaving them unruffled, and noise levels must be kept down after 10.30pm to ensure little visitors and tired guests can get a good snooze.

Conveniently, the local shop is just five minutes’ drive away from this site, so it’s easy to get your hands on more logs or other essentials ready to get exploring.

Please note

No naked flames are allowed inside the hired accommodation units.

There is no reception on-site: on arrival please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

  • Liked: 

    Very friendly owners, on arrival showed us around the woods and found us a suitable spot for a large tent, although it was quiet, maybe a bit tricky when fullish, helped us get the pit fire going which we was struggling with, the kids loved the outdoors playing,climbing the trees etc. The owners children are friendly and soon showed our kids around even taking them in their private area having a go on the canoe. Very relaxing place, would recomend to anyone but no electric hook ups so take plenty warm clothing. Our first non electric hook and did miss the heater and kettle, otherwise no complaints whatsoever. Thanks.

Directions

Local attractions

You may know Blackpool for its seafront and 19th-century Central Pier (half an hour’s drive) complete with a funfair, but the attractions certainly don’t end there. You might have a hard time deciding between catapulting down waterslides in Sandcastle Waterpark (35 minutes), dropping from heights at Blackpool Pleasure Beach (35 minutes) or playing like a prisoner on the theatrical rides in the The Blackpool Tower Dungeon (half an hour).

Water ready too? Blackpool Wake Park (25 minutes) has an aqua park where you'll be able to get your bounce on. Watersports are on full throttle here too, with everything from wakeboarding to kayaking. St Annes beach (40 minutes) will keep up this spirit too, as the sandy stretch is a hotspot for windsurfing and kitesurfing (and donkey rides, in typical seaside style too).

To wind things back down, the town has a few spots for a more leisurely pace. Perhaps a tour of the enclosures in Blackpool Zoo (25 minutes), getting up and close with the wax figures at Madame Tussauds (half an hour) or seeing what life looks like underwater at SEA LIFE Blackpool (half an hour)?

Must see

  • The Blackpool Tower (6.9 miles)
  • Blackpool Illuminations (7.1 miles)
  • Central Pier (7.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (18.4 miles)
