 Great little find. Last minute BH booking. The site has a social club and bowling green. Walks on the door step if you want.

Local pub, very inviting serves great food.

The campsite warden David is very accommodating, enjoyed our stay.

 Very family oriented campsite. It was really busy bank holiday wknd when we visited with live music in the club on site. We could hear noise from this but nothing horrendous and our little boy was fast asleep in no time.

There is shops and takeaways close by a takeaway actually delivered to us on the campsite pizza etc. Drinks and food also available from the club on site.

Facilities on site are great. All round lovely campsite, very friendly staff.

Reviewer: Elden2 1 review from this member

 This was my first time at the site and it was very busy. It was bank holiday weekend.

There were two bands on during the day and a large crowd of motor bikers (a club I expect) and with only 2 toilets and 2 showers I felt there were too many people for the facilities that were on offer.

We did not take food with us for our dinner as we thought we could buy a meal but it did not seem possible as the club was packed with people waiting for the band to come on.

Luckily a take away pizza leaflet was dropped off just in the nick of time. Apparently, there was a also a pub down the road

That said we found a relatively peaceful spot and the owner was a lovely chap. I am sure that when it is quieter it is an ideal spot and very reasonably priced.

Despite the crowds it was very clean. Ideal for a short stay.

 Couldn't stay as family issue, but visited friends who were staying, and was very impressed with the pitches, amenities and especially Dave, who was very helpful and understanding.

Will definitely stay next time when in the area

 New to camping and this will be the 3rd time we have stayed here for a weekend break in 6 weeks.

Dave who runs this is brill nothing is too much trouble for him.

The site is good for kids has it's away from the main road and at night it is quiet

Reviewer: Marramc48 15 reviews from this member

 A very quiet and secluded site although a housing development is in progress adjacent. The toilet is quite a distance from the CCC pitches although there are non CCC pitches adjacent to the club. However most caravans and motorhomes have their own facilities nowadays.

There is plenty of off road walking around the old hospital grounds.

A newsagent/general store is just a ten minutes walk away in the village and the city of Preston is only a ten minutes drive away.

Being just a ten minute drive from the M6/M55 junction 1 the site is conveniently situated for visiting Blackpool, Fleetwood and the Fylde,

The Forest of Bowland and Southport. At £10/unit/night inc. Hook up you cannot go wrong

Reviewer: Mamajeannie 16 reviews from this member

 We used this site as a stopover on our way to Scotland, we chose it because it is close to a motorway junction and seemed very easy to get to. The warden was so helpful and friendly, allowing us to park in such a way that we didn't need to unhitch the caravan.

The clubhouse was a bonus, we had pies peas chips and gravy for £3. 50, not gourmet cuisine, but just hit the spot. We could relax have a drink and chat with other campers in a relaxed very friendly environment.

There was a faint hum of noise from the motorway but this didn't disturb us. Would definitely use again.

 Just spent a weekend here and it was our first camping trip. We chose this place as it seemed a quiet first try for us and we weren't wrong. My review will be limited as I've nothing to compare to but if you like simple no-frills relaxed camping then this is great.

We have a big 8 man tent and there was 5 of us but we were only charged £6 a night with electric! Where else can you get that?

The toilets were attached to the clubhouse and you entered via a keypad outside door and they were always very clean, always with toilet roll and plenty of hot water. No separate pot washing facilities but the sinks in the loo were big enough or you could just fill a washing up bowl.

Drinking water points were dotted around and could dispose of your rubbish behind the club which I found good as we were never near any smelly bins.

We were on the club lawn and the ground was very easy to drive the pegs in. It rained heavy pretty much for the first 24 hours and there was never a problem regarding water-logging, great drainage obviously!

There was a swing and slide and movable picnic tables on the lawn where my kids had fun playing with their ball, nobody telling them off made it nice and relaxed. There is also a small football pitch in the next field where they sometimes went to be a bit more boisterous.

We didn't go to the club but it didn't seem busy at all and looked reasonable price wise, sport being screened on the big TV in there would be a good point for some I suppose.

We found an Asda thanks to a very helpful staff member there about 5 miles away but at the end of the lane of the site is a village shop, pharmacy, chippy and pub.

The only minor negatives I could think of is the electric hookup was quite far from our tent so we had to go and buy an extension (our original hookup is 25m and we needed a 10m extension), I don't know if this happens a lot as I say I haven't camped before, but the guy on the site directed us to a place to buy the lead so was as helpful as he could be.

Also it is in the grounds around the old hospital being demolished so if you looked behind the clubhouse there was a big crane there but obviously this isn't permanent and the surrounding scenery is lovely otherwise.

All in all it did the job for us, we wanted a quiet chilled start to camping and we got it, absolute bargain, great for short stopovers, and if they ever put showers in, we would definitely return for a longer stay

Reviewer: Clhunter 5 reviews from this member

 We've just come back from a fantastic weekend staying here. We are a family of 2 adults and 4 children and were camping with a 6 berth dome tent. If you like basic camping to keep the costs down then this place is perfect. The locality is lovely and is within easy reach of the Fylde coast.

The site itself is in the grounds of the late Whittingham Hospital which is currently being demolished. Once this has been completed the outlook will be much better. But to be honest we didn't notice it. The owners were really friendly and accommodating and allowed us use of the Club etc. This has got to be one of the rarest places now that charge purely by unit and not per head. Therefore with a family of 6 it was a real winner. The charges were £6 per unit without electric and £8 per unit with electric. There was supposed to be an extra charge for membership to the club of £1 per adult which would last 1 month but we weren't charged it.

There are no showers but the toilets had hot water so we weren't having to heat up the water ourselves for having a wash and washing up. Thus saving us gas.

We were pitched on the Club's lawn with the swing, slide and small football net for the children, plus movable picnic tables we could use for mealtimes. As such the pegs went in easily as we weren't on the hardstanding fields.

Would definitely go again.
