We are moments away from buying our first caravan and I'd like our first trip out (a weekend) to be a nice chav free one. (Sorry chavs). In Lancashire pref neear ish to a beach and the hills. was thinking Morcombe area, Carnforth?

We have a nearly 4 year old girl and aren't into the big club with kids running wild while parents get drunk and smoke type of club house / bar thing really.

Nor are we into noise all night long.

We have a dog as well that will be comming along.

Site needs to be quiet, tidy, with nice ammenities, a play area, place for dogs to run about, be frequented by nice caravanners, not pikies.

Sorry but we have a bad camping experience once. place was filled with chavs, pikies all getting out their skulls on lager, with music blarring out from all places, and kids you wouldn't put out if they were on fire. And that was just the mornings described!

 dreadful place.

There's the C&CC site at Clitheroe if you are members, ok, not near a beach, can't help with that as I haven't stayed at any others in Lancs.

It might not be near to a beach, but the river Ribble runs right next to the site ideal for paddling and feeding the ducks. As far as i know they also take non members.

Try Riverside at High Bentham,lovely site.

The river runs right through the site and it is very peaceful,very nice people who own it and the facilities are fantastic.

It is just off the old Morecambe road so you could have a trip to the coast if you wanted.

There is a very friendly pub just 10minutes walk away (I think it is the Horse and Jockey if I remember rightly!) who do food and accept dogs.

ps Definately no pikey's!!!

Try the CC site at Kendal, Low Park Wood. It's only just out of lancashire but it ticks most of the boxes you want.

Hi

We love Riverside in High bentham, lovely site not near a beach but my children play in the river it is very clean and a very quite, clean site the shower / toilet block is excellent.  This was our first visit with our caravan last year we have two children age 4 and 9, also a dog.  The walks for the dog is excellent.

Try Gibraltar Farm. Lots of reviews in the link. Can get busy at weekends. It is near the coast but beaches not the finest. Lots of nice walks round here.

The C&CC site at Clitheroe.

What is a pikie? I keep seeing reference to it on this website but it is not a term I have ever heard before.  I have gathered it is not flattering.
