5 Excellent Things to Do in Lancashire with the Children

Cleveleymere is perfect for family holidays. We have luxury lodges that sleep 2, 4, 6, and 7 people. So, regardless of the size of your brood, we should have plenty of room for you.

We have lots of fun activities for chi sldren on our site, but we know that our guests often like to explore further afield when they visit, too. There’s loads to see and do nearby.

If you want to explore the surrounding areas when you stay with us, below are 5 day out options that the kids will absolutely love.


Brockholes Nature Reserve

If your little ones want to blow off some steam, the Brockholes Nature Reserve should be on your list. This is one of the top free things to do in Lancashire for kids, offering your little monkeys plenty of opportunities for imaginative play in the wild landscape.

Brockholes Nature Reserve is made up of 250 acres of land and is teeming with wildlife, and tasty food is served at the on-site Kestrel Kitchen.


Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the stuff of legends. It has been around for 125 years now, holding testimony to it being a top tier day out in the county (and not just for the kids, either!).

Fun is the only aim here and, at Blackpool Pleasure Beach there is a variety of rides and attractions, including Icon and The Big Dipper.

Younger children will love Nickelodeon Land, where they can enjoy 12 rides and see some popular Nickelodeon characters.

It’s open every day of the week and you don’t need to bring anything with you – they’ll provide you with skates.

Planet Ice has teamed up with some popular food and drink brands, too. So, you can order Papa Johns, Rollover, Coca Cola, Slush Puppy, and Lavazza when you’re there.
