Indulge in ‘comfort under canvas’ at Lantern & Larks – an unforgettable glamping experience on the Bleasdale Estate in Lancashire.

Set beside the spectacular Forest of Bowdale, Lantern & Larks is the ultimate place to relax, unwind and get back to nature.  And you’ll enjoy it all in a spacious, beautifully appointed tent – large enough for six and complete in every comfort.

When it comes to leaving the world behind, the site could not be better positioned; with the magnificent Bowland Fells as your backdrop and rolling pastures as far as the eye can see, it’s hard to believe the bustling city of Lancaster is only 20 minutes away!

Your tent is perfectly appointed to offer all the comforts of home, wrapped in canvas.  Solid decking floors throughout, elegantly furnished rooms and practical facilities at your disposal make this unlike any other you’ve ever stayed in.

The furnished front terrace opens into a spacious, open-plan living area, where the comfortable sofa offers enough space for everyone to relax, play games, or simply catch forty winks after a long day of fun.

The kitchen has everything you need for simple self-catering, including a butane hob, crockery, cutlery and utensils.  The wood burning stove in the living area can also be used for cooking delicious delights such as slow-cooked stews – a hearty treat for the hungry glamper!  In the dining area, elegant ornaments and candles create ambience as you dine around the large, pine table.

This is glamping, so there’s not a sleeping mat in sight in the three, spacious bedrooms! Instead, curl up in solid pine beds topped with comfy mattresses and cosy duvets.  You’ll find a king size bed in one bedroom, twin beds in the other, and bunk beds in the third room, as well as lots of space for all your bags and belongings.

More information

A practical rear porch leads to the private WC and bathroom, both of which are plumbed in and drain away.  Say ‘goodbye’ to shared shower blocks, and ‘hello’ to a lovely, warm, private shower, complete with adjustable spray!

Every tent also has its own fire pit, perfect for BBQs, toasting marshmallows, or simply keeping warm during a spot of stargazing.  For ease, order breakfast packs and BBQ packs loaded with tasty supplies or, for a special occasion, why not order a celebration pack, filled with wine, flowers and chocolates?

Your stay at Bleasdale can be as active or relaxed as you wish.  Direct access to the local footpath network makes exploration easy; step back in time at the Stone Age circle, just 20 minutes from your tent, or experience the quiet solitude and scenery of a walk across the Bowland Fells.

The local myriad of cycle networks is ready to conquer too, with routes to Beacon Fell Country Park and the local village of Chipping.  And if that sounds too much like hard work, hire an electric bike from the Estate – all the rewards without the effort!

A little further beyond, the bright lights of Blackpool are just 30 minutes away; enjoy the thrills and spills of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, take a trip up the Tower or make a splash at Sandcastle Waterpark.  Lancaster is also within easy reach, brimming with historic charm, museums and the impressive castle.

However you spend your stay, one thing’s for sure: a visit to Lantern & Larks at Bleasdale will leave the whole family relaxed, revived and reinvigorated – and ready to come back next year!
