Reviewer: Vininlancs 2 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 3 nights last weekend. I did have reservations because of some of the reviews left but as it was only 40 minutes from home decided to at least give it a lookover.

On booking you have a choice of awning or not. This it turns out is paramount as to where you could be sited. There are 5 awning pitches at the rear of the clubhouse and when the awning was up we had about 7 feet to the next pitch. The awning pitches are not the easiest to get to and I had to use the motor mover. Also the pitches has raised concrete plinths for the wheels which my mover struggled with and I had to use a ramp to get onto them. 16 Amp supply and there was is drinking water available on the pitch and also a grey waste drain near the hook-up points. For Chemical waste disposal there is one point only but this is not near were we were pitched.

My stay there for 3 nights was £73. 50 with awning and electric hook-up which are extras on the basic price. The brochure states :-Caravans FROM £18, Hookup and awning costing another£4. 50 per night by my reckoning that came to £67. 50 but I was charged £73. 50. I queried this and was told it FROM 18 depending on the season, The swimming pool had closed the week before so hence I had thought wrongly that it was Low season, there are NO clear definitions on dates what causes the variations in pricing????

On my stay there was only 1 other vehicle a motor-home but they stayed two nights, after that we were alone.

The other hard standing pitches next to clubhouse are NOT good at all, very cramped indeed, on top of each other, and right next to the main Northern railway line from Preston not my idea of a break. 5 caravans arrived on them on Saturday and by Sunday they had all gone.

The site itself is generally good, but it is a Static caravan site and not really geared up for Tourers

The toilet blocks for the tourers are basic and functional, the ones near reception are not the best, only one cubicle and one stall to use and the toilet seat half missing They are cleaned daily and the showers are hot and free. There is a £5 deposit for the Toilet and Shower blocks, which is refundable. The clubhouse which has just been refurbished and is excellent, good entertainment, reasonable bar prices and friendly staff, all the staff I met whilst there were friendly. There is no charge for residents and Tourers but if you are expecting any visitors its £3 a head to get them in. Also on site is a small outdoor swimming pool, again in a very nice area, this had shut the week previously but got to be a bonus in the summer. Children are welcome in the clubhouse and there is a play-field on site also as mentioned some nice walks and bicycle rides.

Adjacent to the site is a small river and rod permits are available from the site booking office, there are nice riverside walks with plenty of seating, quite picturesque.

Also on site there is a chippy Fri/Sat only, again good value for money. There is also a small shop selling all the basic essentials plus papers and cigarettes, the lady there again very pleasant

Six Arches is easily accessible, its just a few hundred yards down station lane off the main A6 road, but you have to pass under a low bridge, The Height Plate on this says 9 FT, but my truckers manual gives it as 10' 3'' Care is necessary on approach At the nearest Petrol Station there is a Spar shop attached which also sells a good range of products. Nearby there are a good selection of eateries and dining establishments and site is well placed for visiting local attractions.

Summary, A lovely Static caravan site, not really geared up for tourers, small cramped pitches and indistinct pricing. It is in a nice location. Site is well kept and the people and staff are nice and friendly. For a one night stay-over its fine but I will not be returning.

Had a two night weekend break at this site, the new club house is great ! Live entertainment and bingo every weekend bar staff miserable. All other staff great !

Toilet / showers need an update but are free and hot so cant complain. Good chip shop on site and brilliant access to garstang / scorton etc. Will visit again due to friendly, warm people we met.

Excellent dog walking, fishing, bird watching on site.

Site is a handy stop over for m6 although that is about it. Touring pitches are a converted car park near the club which is where all activity on this sites is held. When we arrived mid afternoon if people were not drinking in the club they were drinking outside and this continued until the club closed. That said it didn't disturbed us to much. Great meal in the nearby New Holly pub with lovely beer garden. The toilet block on the site needs condemned and rebuilt. If this is not possible then they could at least employ a cleaner as they are at best manky. Wont be back.

Just had 6 nights in school holidays with 2 grandkids. Nice camp. The shower block needs modernizing but showers very good. Not kid friendly club even though it was a kids entertainment night. Defo wont go back with kids and would rent a van next time rather then take a tourer. Reception very nice. Staff in club miserable. Maintenance very helpful

Overall our stay was not enjoyable, lovely site and views to the surrounding area but not really for family's with children it is more for couples. Onsite shop with choice, excellent chippy on site with friendly staff, good entertainment for couples but nothing for the children to do, in my opinion the site does not really cater for children, Lovely restaurants in the area I would recommend the Italian situated on the main road opposite the site entrance and also the Chinese restaurant in garstang town. The pubs in garstang town are very welcoming with a friendly atmosphere. Would visit garstang again but would not return to the six arches.

We arrived at six arches late on Saturday night and although the office was closed the site warden and his wife were there to welcome us with the key to our caravan and our free club memberships. The caravan was a new 6 berth caravan and was double glazed and central heated with a large flat screen television and was probably best caravan we have stayed in.

We overlooked the river wyre and although is was wet we felt warm and very at home. There is a railway line that runs by the side of the caravan park but we hardly noticed the trains during our stay. We Walked our dog every day in the beautiful Trough of Bowland and spent our evenings evenings in the Club at the park or the pub in the nice little village of Scorton. We had a wonderful stay and have booked already for June
