 We arrived at the camp site on a very cold, wet and windy night in July but were instantly warmed by the welcome. The owner was curtious and friendly and was happy to give us as much or as little help as we wanted.
The site itself is well laid out - there is a lot going on with stables, fishing ponds, caravans and tents but the site is split into small areas with mature hedging and trees inbetween so you never feel crowded.
The facilities were ok - though I'm not sure how many pitches they served and you did have to pay extra for showers but the camp fees where so cheap this didn't really matter.

The farm shop a mile or so down the road towards the m6 is a must - lots of great produce and again very friendly people.

 A delightful and relaxing break just spent at Charity farm. Camp facilities are clean and field kept in good condition. All pitches are numbered and we were able to get on a field away from main fields as was our want, as the main tent field with EHU was busy and we wanted some peace but still close to showers and wc.
There is a laundry room, but I didn't check it out as our stay was only a short one. Local pub within easy walking distance, and pub grub looked excellent, we'd had a bbq so didn't partake. Fishing on site seems good, not being an angler myself, just watched and some reasonable fish were being caught.

 Well recommended really enjoyed the stay. The facilities on the camp are OK specially if you like fishing the lakes are well looked after and are clean you also have a canteen where there are vendor machines what you can get drinks snacks such as hot drinks or cold drinks pot noddles burgers where you use the micro wave provided or the hot water which is free which the refreshments are at a good price.
The toilet block are well kept and clean the showers are 50p for the water and the heater there is also a Landry at a charge as well,the pitches for your tent are well kept with a water tab near the entrance to the field.
There is a pub just down the road 200 metres with cooked meals (book in advance for Sunday lunch) which is very nice there are some shop not to far away either where there are take aways fill stations which is handy.
They also have horse shows occasionally. Public foot paths nearby too which are nice just to chill out. Handy because not that far away from the motorway and you can't hear the traffic.
The surrounds are lovely. We be going back next year.

 Just had a 3 night camping/fishing break at charity farm and we will be going back. We were put on the big camping field nicely maintained and flat with plenty of room between pitches.
Toilets/showers excellent although would have preferred free showers (50p). Local pub very nice, fishing very good.
I feel it would benefit from having its own on site shop and play area for kids.

Reviewer: Anoz44 7 reviews from this member

 Just back from visiting this site for the first time and was generally disappointed. First impressions was of a very pleasant site set in a lovely area down country lanes. Reasonably priced. I thought I would be in for a peaceful and stressfree stay.
The toilets block was newish and ok, about four or five toilets which was better than a lot of other sites, there was also a separate part for horses stables which I quite liked, however, as the afternoon went on the campers in the area opposite to us started playing games of football / rounders right in the middle of the caravans, this was going on more or less all the time. Nothing was done about this.
The site does not have anywhere for children to play or to kick a ball around. It puzzles me when these sites say they are family friendly but do not create any play areas or anywhere for children to play football as not to bother other campers. I do not think I will be going back to this site.

 Just got back from Charity Farm, we went local as price of petrol mad at moment! (we live in sunny manchester!) The Farmer was very smiley and polite, lots of people enjoying the fishing, there was a horse show on whilst we were there, no rush for us to get off site on the Sunday afternoon so we enjoyed the show and the sunshine.
Lovely pub the Brook House, which was easy walk of 10 mins away, serves the best steak and kidney pie I have ever tasted! Countryside around was full of wildlife, we saw foxes, pheasants, buzzards so bring your binoculars if your into that kind of thing. We enjoyed it so much booked to go back again.
Toilets clean, you get allocated a pitch number and it was cheap, 10 for tent, car, us and no EHU.

 Just spent a very pleasant 4 nights here, largeish site mainly based on livery stables and commercial fishery 4 lakes.
The best way to describe the site is CLs within CLs as each group of pitches are in their own paddock, mixture of hardstandings & grass very well maintained & large.

The toilet block was spotless & looked to have been newly painted for the 08 season, small selfserve building with coin operated snack machines, dishwashing + microwave again spotless.
Fishing lakes comprise of 1 large lake approx 4 acres with 3 smaller ponds stocked with all the usual commercial fish permit 5 & 6 per day dawn till dusk.
There is a pub within easy walking distance, local village is Ecclestone approx 3 miles not much there but does have a supermarket, bakers, chemist, cafe, fuel & a chinese takeaway.
Best place to shop is at Ormskirk a very nice market town, for the kids Camelot is only just up the motorway 10 minutes from site.
This site is perfectly situated for anyone travelling from north to south who needs to break their journey due to it's easy access to the motorway network.

Reviewer: Daslex1 1 review from this member

 Great site with friendly and helpful owner. Plenty of room between pitches and field was not overcrowded. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on lead, however there is an area where dogs can be let loose. Facilities are basic but clean (you need 50p for showers)

We were charged 10 per night for 2 adults and a 2 yr old which is not to bad for a bank holiday weekend. The time we visited the site was a little rowdy up until about 10pm but this was just young children and it was only the one night over our three night stay. If the site had a children's play area then this would be perfect.

I was a little surprised not to see any information about local attractions, places of interest etc.As there was a small room on the site with vending machines and a seating area which people tended to use.

I would definitely return to charity farm and recommend it to any readers.

 A very quiet campsite with the bare minimum of facilities. This however does not detract from the warm welcome you will receive. It is an ideal base to explore the local area with some beautiful countryside within easy reach. Southport and Blackpool are also easy to access. I would also recommend visiting Chorley market held in the centre of town on a Tuesday.
Don't forget your 50p's for the shower. I look forward to returning soon.

 Visited this site with wife and small child during a wet May weekend. Despite the rain the campsite was a hit and when we found the farmhouse to pay 20 for the 2 nights we had a good time. We called at the local pub at 8pm on the Friday but were told that no 'little ones' were allowed past that time. We didn't go back to that pub although it did look like a good boozer.

I would recommend the 'Toogood' farm shop which was a mile from the campsite and can easily be found be turning right when leaving the campsite and following the road. The steak that we BBQ'd was fabulous.There was also a small nursery which was worth a look.

The site was quite when we were there and the pitches seemed to be a good size. The toilet block was clean and tidy and the owner seemed to be a friendly sort.

All in all very good.
