Very enjoyable stay. We stayed on an excellent, fully serviced pitch - the website pictures don't do it justice. The toilet block and showers are SPOTLESS. In fact, the whole site is SPOTLESS.

The resident wardens, Anne and her husband, could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Nice, quiet site but with the Aquapark adjoining there are great activities available. General activities for kids is a bit limited if it rains (as it did on our first day) but we'd thoroughly recommend this site.

Just returned from this site after 4 nights, not a bad site but rather dear for what it is. The toilet block was good except when I went for a shower it was freezing cold no heating on so had to do with a good wash, the floor looked as though it hadn't seen a mop all season. The dog poo bin was full to over flowing. The club bar wasn't open wont be returning

This is a lovely site close to Blackpool with easy access. Site has a helicopter on site which can be hired for camping which is a very unusual nice feature. Nice grassed areas well maintained with hard standing good sized, level slate/gravel pitches. Security coded barrier for entry and departure. Welcoming reception when you arrive. WC block is almost like a porta cabin like unit but is modern and was kept reasonably clean. Fully serviced pitches make life simple. A nice site which we will return to in the future. Small café on site next to waters ports area

Visited for 3 nights in October.

Found the site very clean and the staff very helpful.

Pitches are hard standing the the modern toilet block very clean.

Found the location handy to go into Blackpool.

Not sure about the on site helicopter unit that can be hired, seems to attract the kids as a climbing frame.

Visited Ream Hills for two nights after visiting Lake District.

Wanted to visit Blackpool for the day, so chose this as the nearest site.

Satnav takes you down the road but good signage when you finally find the site.

Camping field is reached down a good track with security gate, passing by the water sports lake.

Allocated pitches which are a bit pot holed but managed to find a level area.

No view - flat fields all around and sound of the motorway.

Washrooms are excellent - hot free showers in a modern block and even hair dryers! However, they are quite a walk from the camping field, some people drove there and if you are using the wash up facilities - take a trolly!

Blackpool is a 20 min drive away and there are pubs and shops but not within walking distance.

There is a water sports lake but we didn't use that.

Quite expensive - £50. 00 for two people, two nights, one tent and car.

Would I return ? Not unless I was visiting Blackpool again, which is unlikely.

After purchasing a new caravan nearby we stayed here for 2 nights over weekend. Blackpool (zoo, beach & illuminations) 20 mins drive. Toby carvery 5mins. Eagle & Child pub 5mins drive opp direction. Showers, toilets, laundry&dishwashing area spotless and modern. Barrier(code operated). Wifi is free. Army Lynx helicopter available for overnight stay. Under 12 play area, kayaking, wakeboarding and cafe area. Some seasonal tourers on site. Super pitches & standard available. Lodges are also available to purchase. Everything we needed for our short stay.

Excellent caravan site. We have enjoyed two visits here this year. The owners are lovely and always welcoming and friendly. A small farm shop has recently been opened. There is a children's playground and the site is adjacent to the Blackpool wakeboard park. The facilities are excellent and clean.

Good site, very easy access, 2 min from M55. Site is barrier secured. Very friendly wardens, check in and welcome very professional, assistance with pitching available. Facilities were spotless and very modern, the site was full over the bank holiday and although they were busy never waited for facilities. Roads and pitches are graveled and flat, not the biggest but certainly a good size. Plenty of opportunity for walking the dog, large areas of farmland. Tents are down by the lake and have own facilities, they are serviced, some right on the side of the lake, superb views. Cafe on site and watersports available. Not really our sort of site but never the less a very well run site. Still a relatively new site and looks a bit stark but huge amount of soft landscaping been done ans will look much better when this matures. It was bank holiday and a bit busy for us, too many kids, but still enjoyed it.

We have just returned from a our stay on this site over the bank holiday weekend. WOW what a fantastic place, the staff on site and the wakepark were lovely and friendly. The amenities were excellent. There is a lovely park for children under 12 and a café/bar at the wakepark. It was a lovely weekend and we could not be happier. EXCELLENT

Reviewer: Ethan0796 16 reviews from this member

Just returned home after spending the weekend at this site. After reading the lovely positive reviews I was really looking forward to spending the weekend here.

Arrived later than planned on the Friday due to traffic and was met by a friendly lady who gave us directions to our pitch. When we arrived at the pitch I was shocked! It was an unkept strip of land that is now designated for tents. The pitches were marked out with numbers (medium size) but the ground was very uneven and lumpy but fairly level. This was nothing like what we expected after reading the lovely positive reviews.

We pitched up regardless and went for a little wonder around. It quickly became apparent that all the previous positive reviews were based on another area of the campsite- which is now solely for the use of caravans- no tents!. This area was lovely and well kept, lovely pitches and generally a nice area.

The shower/toilet facilities in the caravan area are also lovely & new. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the facilities designated for tent users!. They appeared to be an old ship container box converted into showers, toilets & two small sinks for the washing up area- the light also failed to work in the washing up area. The facilities were clean but nothing like the facilities in the. Now. Caravan only area! The taps are all push button, which blasted out everywhere and wet everything. Including the floor.

If I had known about the new designated tent area & poor facilities- I would never have booked this site- but as like other tent campers this weekend. I can only presume they also booked based on the pretence that they would also get to enjoy the lovely well kept caravan area as others previously had the good fortune to do.

As mentioned in previous reviews. This is a new site and could be lovely if all facilities were mirrored with the caravan only facilities. This really does need to be addressed. And quickly, as I for one, will not be returning to this site.

The children's play area is new- but lacks any appeal, and my boys soon lost interest due to the lack of thought that's gone into it.

The water sports on site was again a let down for me. The cost in my eyes was far too high- wanting £25 for two canoes for 1hr and then an additional £9 for the hire of wetsuits - to me is excessive. This price also included discount due to staying on the park!

The dog walk is great the location to Blackpool also gets the thumbs up, but unfortunately that's as far as it goes.

My husband also over heard that one of the campers (tent) decided to use the nice shower facilities, but was told by the warden that he must not use these facilities again, as they are solely for the use of the caravan pitches. I can completely understand why he did this and find it disgraceful that the warden had the nerve to say he was not to use those facilities again!

Again my thoughts. Felt like this site was very regimental- no disposable bbq, no ball games, no electric fan heaters!. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times. Which I do agree with, and if I'm honest, our dog did sneak out and wonder around a couple times. What I did find odd. Was not all adhered to this rule ie the warden. Who's dog was never on a lead.

Also noticed in the information document it stipulates a 6 meter gap between each tent, this was not the case. We pitched our tent to the far left of the pitch to allow us to put the car & trailer at the side of the tent, in doing this we had roughly 2 meters to the next tent even though they pitched in the centre of their pitch. We even heard someone snoring all through the night due to the close proximity. Can only imagine what this area would be like if all pitches were in use! so be warned.

The little shop got the thumbs up from my boys and they said the lady in the shop was very pleasant and had a little chat with them.

Overall, we had a lovely family weekend, but very dissapointed with the site after having high expectations. Other tent campers(this weekend)also expressed thier disappointment and said they would not return.
