 We have been to this site twice this year as it is only 30 minutes from home. It has wonderful views from the pitch over the lake and the hills beyond. There are some really nice walks along the river through the woods and of course around the lakes which we enjoyed with our puppy.

The toilet facilities are good, although in the evening it was quite strange and a little intimidating to be cleaning your teeth in pyjamas when there were people from the bar all glammed up using the same toilets and having a gossip.

The owners are friendly and the shop is well stocked and had good prices - we paid less than 2 for a new mallet. There is a general hum from the motorway, although after a short while the wonderful views distract from this. We ate in the bar the first time and the food was a reasonable price.

 Just spent weekend at Wyreside. Excellent site

Beautiful views and walks around lakes.

Toilet block very modern & very clean with excellent hot showers.

Watched the England game in bar - followed by Karaoke which was very entertaining and very good atmosphere.

Childrens gamesroom and playground very good.

Onsite well stocked shop.

Didn't go off the site as it was so nice on it.

Will definitely be booking there again soon.

 We enjoyed our time at the site. The setting was was great and the club house and play areas were a success with the kids, especially the entertainment on Saturday night. The shop was good and the prices reasonable. We ate once at the restaurant which served good quality well priced food.

As mentioned in other reviews it is a long walk to the toilets from the tent areas. Also at peak times the shower / wash facilities were very crowded.

Reviewer: Cavaliergirl 1 review from this member

 It was spring bank week and We received a cheery greeting making us and 2 dogs feel very welcome, and was immediately escorted to our pitch, (1 of 8 EHU for tents).

This was at the top of the upper field which was on a slight slope but with beautiful views of one of the lakes and hillside beyond.

Although the site is so close to the motorway just behind Forton services, the birds are quite verbal thankfully we had earplugs, the surroundings are very scenic plenty of lakes through a woodland walk and all that was missing was some seats to rest and take in the views.

The toilets and shower block were very clean with hot water 24/7,( would recommend a bucket for overnight as it is a long sprint if urgent) there is a small site shop,launderette and bar serving food and a take away service.The staff all seemed friendly and helpful. There is a local spar shop about 2 miles away or we passed a large Morrisons and Asda on the way to Fleetwood. On the whole we had a wonderful stay and will book again, the site is well situated for Blackpool, Morecambe and the lakes.

 Got to say the facilities were clean and well looked after

The clubhouse was well stocked and like the well stocked shop, nothing was over priced.

Plenty of space around the tents.

The play area for the kids was great.

A couple of niggles for me only. If I was much further away from the toilets, it would have been an idea to bring a portable toilet. Also although the M6 is a bit away, because there is nothing in between, there is the constant drone from there throughout the night

The only other niggle I have and this is a personal one, and that is that I prefer to set the temperature of the showers. Just a personal thing

So would I go again, yes but I would prefer to pitch closer to the facilities. Oh and I would use a different tent with a sig to try and prevent the midges from the lake.

 All I can say is what a great site, firstly everything from toilets, showers to shop is very clean, we didn't go in the club house only because its not our thing.

We had two dogs with us and it was only 3 min walk to the woods which were beautiful, full of bluebells lots of beautifulpictures taken there

I think even when it is full you wont be cramped as it is so well organised, the fishing lakes were lovely and peaceful to walk around and there is a little area for the kiddies, swings etc. Outside clubhouse are benches tables and even a barbecue.

So all in all I loved it and will be booking again real soon, just to add, very friendly and helpful staff.

 4 adults 3 small children. Couldn't fault the site. It wasn't busy - only about 10 tents on site so it was quiet. Toilets showers etc. were very clean. Small shop sold the vital provisions. There is a bar but we only popped in once and it seemed nice.

This site is a big fishing site and the lakes were really nice to walk round. At night there were lots of bats flying round. The camping field was pretty much flat and the field we were on was quite a big one.

There is a small kids play area- could ideally do with a slide but it was fine. Really easy to get to the site from the motorway.

We will definitely use this site again. The receptionist etc. were all very friendly.

 What a site!

We arrived on sat afternoon for 2 nights and just got the tent and extension up before the rain set in! The site is immaculately clean and tidy, the toilets are spotless, the bar, shop and restaurant all are again spotless.

All the staff are helpful, friendly and attentive. The site is secure and the only noise we heard was a couple of small children crying but due to the cold what would you expect?

The ground is firm even with the amount of rain fall and dried well the following day. We asked to be out of the way and were shown to a long field and down to the bottom. The only concern I did have was due to entertainment and possible noise but we did not hear a thing.

The site shop has essentials but a Spar is only 3 mins away for bigger stuff.

We will be booking again for this August as we are more than happy to stay for a week or so.

A absolute gem of a site and thanks to the staff for the hospitality.!

Reviewer: Adamski 2 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for 2 nights (2 adults, 1 child) and overall we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff were friendly and helpful, and it was nice that this was family run business. Not sure if it was value for money as this was our first ever camping trip so we had nothing to compare it to in terms of prices: staying for 2 nights in 1 tent cost 29.00.

The toilets and showers were clean, and as it was quiet on the site (we stayed Monday and Tuesday) there was no waiting to use the showers of a morning.

We used the restaurant for breakfast on both mornings and the food was great and reasonably priced.

The on-site shop was only small though and didn't stock much - we needed extra tent poles as one of ours broke and the shop didn't stock them so it meant an hours round trip into Lancaster to hunt for a camping supply shop.

The camping field itself was good, the only problem being the huge numbers of wasps - I got stung twice. It was no fun trying to cook and eat outdoors as we just got attacked by them constantly.

The site could do with a bit of security at night, as the last night we were there quite a few people woke up to find tent pegs missing.

However overall we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

 We received a warm welcome and were directed to the top field with EHU. The field has a slight slant, which increases slightly as you get toward the lake. We took 2 small children and were happy with the distance away from the lake as we won't allow them to stray so far. We also took a small dog who was also welcome. There are several lakes and provide quite a nice evening walk for the dog. The lakes are surrounded by fishermen in small shelter tents.

On site there is a pub, through the reception are and also toilets/showers and a family room. 4 showers or so, but never queued and they were very clean with warm water.

Garstang, Lancaster both near and Clevely's has had a redeveloped front. About half an hour away for an afternoon on the beach.

On our visit it had rained for about 10 days prior and on the Friday evening of our 3 day visit. The field did get a bit boggy.But which field wouldn't in this weather. Approx a mile away from the M6 as the crow flies, however the noise and in particular the evening was minimal.

Nice site with kids playground.Recommended
