Abbey Farm is a top site, tranquil/peaceful with excellent facilities, family friendly, no noise. Can we campers want anything more? Highly recommend, upon arrival had a very friendly greeting from one of the brothers showed us our pitch and answered every question I asked. Before leaving we tried to book for the August Bank Holiday weekend - full, no surprise.

Nice clean site with two toilet blocks. Small camping area which was on a slight slope. Nice and quiet when we arrived on the Thursday but on the Friday it got quite busy, so slightly cramped as the pitches are laid out between posts. There is a large play area at the bottom of the field through a gate, which was good as most of the children played down here and not on the camping field. Nice walk up the track and over the railway line to the Bull and Dog, if you want to eat out or better still walk into the town of Ormskirk, about one and a half miles along the main road footpath or you could take the scenic view along an off road footpath which takes about an hour. The site also have a library, which is a good idea.

Stayed at abbey farm for 2 nights - Friday / Saturday. 4 adults 3 kids. We only live in Manchester and it was only 35mins to get there but you feel you are a lot further from home.

The site is very nice, we were booked in easily and quickly. We had a nice big pitch with EHU in the tent field on the left as you enter the site. The showers / toilets were very clean, there is a wash up area in the field we were on which is handy.

There is a nice games room and library on site. The little shop had all the essentials you need.

We went fishing for a few hours (3 per rod per day) - we caught a few decent sized fish which the kids loved.

On the Saturday, we went to ainsdale beach (approx 30 mins away) - fantastic beach and you can park on there as well for 5.

There are a couple of fields and play areas for the kids which they all seemed to enjoy.

We would return again and the fact it is so close is a bonus for us when we look at a 2 night trip.

Great little site. Very clean including the toilets and washing up areas. Nice parks for the kids and a decent enough games room for the older ones. Pretty relaxed staff allowing takeaway delivery to the gates etc. We had a camp fire which seemed fine so long as it's in a BBQ pit and not the grass. A very easy hassle free site with big pitches which we will definitely go back to!

Stayed at Abbey farm for the Easter weekend break and to sum up the stay :- FANTASTIC ! We stayed in a tent with other friends and we were all pitched together, which with children this helped a lot. There was a lovely park area with swings, slide and plenty of grass to run around ! The on site shop was very REASONABLY priced (found many very over priced !) The toilets were kept clean and tidy although when they ran out of toilet roll, I informed the staff who replaced within 5 minutes ! A games room with pool (50pence per game) and table tennis kept our children amused but as we had lovely weather they all played in the park area for most of the weekend ! Lovely, well kept and managed site and we have no doubts, we will be returning over the summer season again to Abbey Farm ! 10 out of 10 ! If you have young children this site is a must ! Very good value for money and not expensive campsite like many others we have stayed at.

Just had a really good bank holiday weekend at Abbey Farm, Ormskirk. Site is very clean and pitches are of good size too. There are 2 toilet blocks which are cleaned every day, showers are good and warm, also a separate disabled toilet with shower, bath and sink too. The brothers and their families who own the site are very welcoming and helpful with any issue you may have. There is a small shop that sells a little more than the essentials and also beer, wine and cider just in case you've ran out! There is a separate dog walking field and a very large recreation field for kids - more than adequate for them to play football, cricket, etc. There are also swings, etc for the little ones too. Facing the shop/reception is a games room with pool, table tennis, games, etc and there is also a library which you may borrow books during your stay, and also another children's play area for the minors. The waste bins were also emptied twice during the 4 nights we stayed. There is a field with Shetland ponies and also fishing facilities too. There is no pub or club on this site which is why we like it as it was so peaceful and relaxing, as the weather was dry everybody seemed to chill and have their own bbq's but if you did want a pint, there is a pub 5 mins walk northwards of the site. It looked like that there is a new field opening with new lodges to live in too. Although we stayed in our tourer, there was also plenty tents on too. There is also laundrette facilities too. Takeaways are only 5 mins away by car as Ormskirk centre is 5 mins drive which there is Morrisons, Argos, McDonalds, etc. The other direction is Burscough 5 mins drive away which has takeaways, Tesco, etc.

Southport is only approx 10 miles away too. One of the things we particularly liked about this site is that it is privately owned and therefore not all commercialised which made our stay more enjoyable. There was a mixture of young families to the elderly but everyone was polite and said hello. Will definitely be returning to this site shortly too.
