Bleasdale is one of four Lantern and Larks sites nestled in the beautiful Lancashire countryside, within easy reach of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, this is the perfect place for a family break. Sit back and relax in one of five luxury safari tents, fully equipped with a cosy wood burning stove, hot running water and comfortable bedrooms. Parties of six or more can book multiple tents and enjoy a group break.
Each of our luxury Lantern and Larks tents accommodates six guests and has three bedrooms that each sleep two people. There is one king size room, one twin room and one bunk bed room per tent.
You could also fit a travel cot in any of the bedrooms (these can be hired if required).
Our Lantern and Larks glamping site is situated above a private section of the River Brock. Build dams, catch sticklebacks, wander down the sleepy river banks to quiet pools in the dappled shade of the overhanging trees. Or build dens and camps in the wood behind the tents. It's a natural adventure playground for your kids.
From our beautiful forest of Bowland Lantern and Larks site, there is direct access to the local footpath network, and you can visit the Stone Age circle located 20 minutes' walk from your tent. A little further on and you reach the open access area of the Bowland Fells where you can walk for miles without seeing a car – or even other people. All this without going near a public road.
For the more intrepid, there are the local cycle networks and bridleways close to the luxury Lantern & Larks Bleasdale glamping campsite. Cycle to the nearby Beacon Fell Country Park from the glamping camp site, or to the pretty village of Chipping with its pubs, cafes and ice cream shop! If this seems a little hard work, there is a business hiring electric bicycles located on the estate.
If other forms of transport appeal, there are local horse-riding centres close by and they specialise in taking riders on treks round the local riding network. Or take a cruise on the Lancaster canal from the Barton Grange Garden Centre – only 10 minutes away.
The local wildlife can be stunning with everything from glimpses of deer in the valley below your tents to the famous "sky dancer" or hen harrier on the fells above you. If your tastes run to the more exotic, we have the Bowland Wild Boar Park a 20-minute drive away, and for those keen on catching the local wildlife, there are several fishing lakes in the area, ranging from pike and perch to trout and salmon.

Amazing holiday, friendly welcome, incredible accommodations. Fantastic view. I would highly recommend a trip.
We had a wonderful weekend glamping in Bleasdale. This is an amazing site with everything that you need. The area was beautiful and the tents were amazing. We are used to camping in our own tent so this felt luxurious! I would highly recommend this to anyone! It was expensive for us but we do hope to save up and go again at some point.
We were fortunate enough to stumble across a last minute cancellation to stay at Bleasdale, I had no idea really what we were booking I just thought I’d make it adventure whatever it be! My husband, 3 boys and I were blown away by they beauty of the site and the size and look of the safari tent. Keith and Debbie were fantastic nothing was too much trouble and they were very welcoming, communication was great. We loved every minute of our magical adventure, the tents are spaced generously unlike a lot of sites, they are well stocked with everything you might need and the beds are cosy not sofa beds or futons as you often find whilst ‘glamping’ we are definitely hoping to return! Highly recommended!
