Holme Open Farm is a traditional dales working farm situated between the Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the Lune Valley. The Farm is run by David and Angela Metcalfe.

Enjoy a day of river fishing, bird watching or a riverside picnic. There is also a children's play area, with swings and slides, as well as a picnic area.

The farmhouse and meadows are 80 metres above sea level with the pastures rising to 100 metres. Hill sheep grazing rights on Middleton Fell reach the dizzy heights of 300 metres. From this point the sheep and their shepherds can look down into nine different valleys or parishes: Dentdale, Garsdale, Cautley, Sedburgh, Howgill, Firbank, Marthwaite, Killington and Middleton.

Nature Trail

The farm supports a fantastic variety of wild animals, birds, trees and flowers, many of which can be seen whilst walking the marked nature trail.


Holme Open Farm also welcomes pre-booked tents and caravans.
