Reviewer: Stef and mandy 21 reviews from this member

Firstly, the sign that a reviewer missed has been replaced by a large white sign, making it harder to miss. Whether you approach from the M65 or the A59, it is easy to reach, and locate. The site was recommended to us by friends, in particular pitch 18, as on the door side of our van, there are unobstructed views of open Country, and the river Calder.

The site has the largest dog exercise area we have ever seen, and it is safe and secure from roads and sheep, so dogs can have 'hell for leather' exercise, after a short walk to the area. There are too many fantastic walks to mention, but our favourite would be Stocks reservoir, near Gisburn, a short drive away, as it is firm under foot, even when wet, and there is a 4 mile, and an 8 mile walk, with breath taking views.

Whalley is a pretty, small Town nearby, and we ate at the Dog Inn, a dog friendly pub, serving first class food and drink, at very reasonable prices. The management is friendly, and everywhere is clean, and we ate with our dogs next to a lovely open fire. Other dog friendly pubs nearby (short drive), are The Assheton Arms at Downham, and the Waddington Arms, in Waddington. Again, both serve good food and drink, at reasonable prices, and both offer stunning Country walks from their doors, including Pendle Hill.

The historic Town of Clitheroe is a short drive, and worth a visit, or you can shop at Boundary Mill, and have lunch or tea at Banny's, a fantastic licensed fish and chip restaurant, at the other side of the car park at Colne.

The site itself, has static vans, and space for 18 tourers. The shower block is of recent build and is warm, and very clean, although the shower cubical s, ideally could be a tad bigger. The site is very clean and tidy, and recycles. Each touring pitch is full service, with 16amp hook-up. Not having to move water and waste around is so relaxing, and we only paid 15/night.

Very nearby, is a bakery that sells fresh bread and pies, a sandwich shop, a Chemist, and a garage with a small supermarket attached. All pitches are hard standing, and I would give this site 10 out of 10 if the hard standings were a bit wider. To place the van on the pitch to have our double step on tarmac, meant access to the toilet cassette was over grass. In dry weather, that would not be a problem, but as 2012 continues to be a wet year, the grass is muddy, rather that very wet.

We will be coming back, this site, and this area is a gem, and we only live 40 miles away!

Stayed a week despite dreadful weather, rain gales etc. Site is all hard standing so was ideal for the weather conditions. Quiet site off the roadway so quiet day and night too.

Toilet facilities fantastic, new and immaculate. Pitches are fully serviced (included in price) but could do with being a little wider to allow positioning of van, a step and space to put feet when stepping in and out of van allowing you to keep off the grass. Site in ideal position for visiting Manchester and it's many attractions.

No shop, bar etc but 2 mins up the road is small village with all in. Bakers has very nice cakes ! Very friendly and helpful owners.

Reviewer: InghamIF 19 reviews from this member

Stayed Christmas and new year. Weather horrible but the site stayed usable.

The site has 50+ statics and about 18 touring pitches most of which are occupied on a seasonal basis.

The site is terraced into a moderate slope with good vehicular access. The touring pitches at the top of the site are not easy to access with a large unit. The weather was extremely wet and our mover just skidded on the tarmac so we had to drive off the tarmac with our Discovery to push the van into the space. The pitches are more than adequate in length but limited in width which may make an awning impossible to use.

The site is pleasant, fairly secluded with excellent walks in the grounds.

The toilet block is small, well heated and of a high quality. More than adequate for the site.

Good services in Reed, the service station is open every day.

Good deals for longer stays.

Overall interesting and pleasant.

Stayed here for 2 nights, Richard and his dad where very welcoming.

Nice quiet site. Local village (Reed) has a garage with shop selling most things you would require along with a chip shop that is also a Chinese takeaway and a pub The Stork within walking distance.

Plot was free so allowed to arrive when we wanted and also leave at anytime. Toilet block very clean with underfloor heating, only small but adequate for size of site. Would stay here again.

Does not have anything for the older child but there was a large area that I think would be ok for ball games etc within view of all pitches.

Grass areas where soggy but it is November.

Wonderful site, very peaceful, owners extremely friendly and helpful.

Pitches are fully serviced no lugging of water or waste great idea. Toilet and showers very well maintained.

Grass and surrounds kept beautifully, no problems with other vans in view as there was plenty of spaces between and the pitches could easily accommodate your awning.

It is on a steep incline but found that no problem when reversing van. People who owned static vans were very friendly too.

Well worth a visit, we will definitely go back again.

This site is a little gem, well spaced hardstanding fully serviced pitches, nice views and very peaceful. New toilet and shower block which is cleaned daily. The site is not far from the villages of Whalley and Clitheroe which are well worth a visit. Good for walkers. The family that run the site are very helpful, anything you need to know and they are more than happy to help. I will definitely stay at this site again.
