 What makes a perfect campsite? Imagine neat rows of nicely spaced modern gleaming caravans and campervans laid out on hardstanding surrounded by a BBQ free verdant sward.

Everyone is quietly well behaved and the site has a list of ‘dos-and-don'ts’ on prominent display. These are enforced by firm-but-fair site managers.

There is no need to leave the site as it has all mod cons, including an admittedly pricey bar and shop, and a risk-assessed play area. If, in spite of the noisy grass mower and sky high charges for staying and for your extras such as your children, your ecu, your awning, your pet and parking for your visitors- you want to rate it as 10/10, then Stephen Lawton’s Hawesvilla farm is not the site for you.

In contrast, it is certainly cheap and cheerful, a bit untidy even, but does everything it claims on the tin, except sell you pork. (Hen and duck eggs, yes).

There are no notices to be seen. There are free-range hens, and maybe a pair of pheasants as well as loads of bird life. We even saw deer elegantly negotiating a barbed wire fence on the lane nearby.

Outside the site, there are plenty walks and a bike rides readily available in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Finally, the site owners, Anna and Steve, are a delight to meet and chat to.

As for me, I’ll give it the 10!

 The words hidden gem are often overused, but in this case, I think well justified. Hidden away down a dead end single track lane, in an already quiet part of the country, lies Hawes Villa Camper van site.

It’s so secluded I was beginning to think I had taken a wrong turn and got myself lost, when the site appeared on my left. Drive through the farm buildings and down to the site, which is very sheltered, surrounded as it is by willow trees.

Pitch up on the level, hard standing area and you’re all set. In the corner is a sauna and hot tub, and a log fired pizza oven. I think you know how one of my nights was spent! When you arrive you will be handed a welcome pack, detailing all the facilities, and giving you the many different wifi codes, which if you need to be in touch, are necessary, given that there is no mobile phone signal! Also provided in the pack are maps detailing a few of the many walks in the area.

Less than a 100 metres from the site, at the end of the lane, is the Gait Barrows nature reserve, in the heart of the Arnside and Silverdale area of outstanding natural beauty. The path through the reserve, which has been upgraded for wheelchair use, leads to a boardwalk overlooking Hawes Water lake, the largest natural lake in Lancashire.

Hawes Villa is also a working farm with a herd of rare breed pigs, free-range poultry and sheep. As such, Farm produce is always available, Eggs, pork, and sausages etc.

Open all-year-round

Children welcome

Dogs allowed

Electric hook-ups available

Chemical Toilet Disposal Point



Free wi-fi

Kitchen and washing machine available

 Very much agree with davidsteel review.

Go with an open mind! Yes, it's not a looker, but the friendliness of the folk makes up for that and it was very reasonably priced with efficient booking procedure.

If you go, print out their directions and follow them, it really is the best route for larger vehicles. There are quite a few roads with less than 6'6' width allowance in Silverdale and Arnside due to the railway going through the area.

Since the last review, there is a new (2017 decorated with pink piggy murals!) shower block - 2 showers, a toilet and sink always clean, I didn't see any heaters in there, but we didn't need it, the weather was glorious.

You really get away from it all as there is no TV signal, no mobile signal and patchy wifi.

Hens, ducks and geese wander around as do the owners dogs, it's a working pig farm but no nasty niffs when we were there and it was very warm weather.

Lovely area for nature lovers and walkers, RSPB place just down the road, we visited Sizergh castle (NT) and Arnside (absolutely gorgeous)

We found the approach road quite narrow in our Motorhome and were very impressed with the driving capabilities of the person towing a large caravan who arrived when we were there, well done him!

 Chose this site due to being close to RSPB Leighton Moss, stayed 2 nights. Very basic site but also inexpensive at £12pn with electric.

The owners are very welcoming and accommodating. The site is basically a very large gravelled yard with 5 pitches and a couple of stored vans.

There is a single toilet and a washing up sink but no showers. There is also a hot tub and sauna that can be hired! Plenty of woodland and old quarries to walk in.

Lots of wildlife in the area. Access is down a long single track lane, so be aware if towing a large van.

Visit this site with an open mind and enjoy the basic living experience in a stunning location.

 This is our second visit to this great site. Warm welcome from owners nice level site with electric hook up.

Lights on marker posts. Hens wandering around sight provided us with really nice eggs.

Area full of wildlife with Buzzards overhead short walk from RSPB Leighton Moss would have liked to spend longer but will return
