This CS is ideal for an overnight stopover. Excellent pub/ restaurant. Safe location, locked at night. Sometimes it's not worth paying the cost of a full service site - this fits the bill. What more is there to say?

We picked the Birley Arms as a last minute one night away to test our new to us motorhome relatively locally. It was selected from this site. Telephone booking and and email confirmation was swift and easy and only £14. 50 per night for our unit. The site was easy to find and local roads easy to negotiate. On arrival at 2pm I parked up in the large car park, attended the bar, paid a £10 deposit for the security barrier key, and a member of staff met me outside to show me the pitches. The level pitch was separated from its next door neighbour by a panel fence, had hard stone standing with a mown grassed area which had its own picnic table. The water and power were adjacent to my osf corner, (I reversed in a 6 metre Autotrail Apache) we were close yet self contained from other units. The toilets and single shower were part of the pub but open from before 9am to closing time, they were clean. The waste point was outside the pitch's site, on the other side of the security barrier, near but far enough away so as not to smell, and behind a door. The entrance was easy to negotiate as was parking on the pitch. The food was excellent and had filling portions, (well my Lasagne/salad/chips and 3 slices garlic bread was very large and under £10). Very nice for a night stop over and only about 15 minutes from the M55.

We have just stayed the weekend here and loved it. Great little only five pitches pitch 1 and 2 might prove a little difficult to get out of if you are a very very nre/inexperienced caravanner other wise its brilliant. £14. 50 per night for us which includes hook up both water and electric. 20 mins from blackpool and we are looking forward to returning here hopefully with better weather, ( site carnt do anything about the weather ). Pitch is hard standing and size is more than adequate each pitch has its own picnic table. Also there is a small play area for the kids to use very close to the pitches. Great site see you soon.

Reviewer: Glynnwi 4 reviews from this member

5 x very small level pitches, fenced off with 5 foot panels, feel very enclosed in. Very quiet site no road traffic very little airport noise. I think the manager said 10 amp ehu. Only tripped once, because very cold and frosty we had heater on all the time. Toilets kept spotlessly clean. Private walkway to pubchilds playground. Pitches are well drained each with own mains point. Three water points between 5 pitches. Security barrier to site (£10. 00 key deposit) good wide entrance through the pub car park. Be careful if booking a saturday and arriving about 15:00pm because carpark is used as entrance to flyde fc football ground.

Direct access to lovely pub/restaurant (and hotel). Site has very easy access. Secure barrier (£10 key deposit). Staff were very helpful and friendly. Was made to feel welcome and directed to facilities. Small site with hard standing, water and hook up. Spotlessly clean toilets and a shower. Some noise from air con/chillers at the pub/hotel but not enough to cause concern. Very convenient for Lytham, Blackpool and Preston.

We stayed here for three nights during March 2012 and heartily recommend it – we will be back!

Birley Arms is easy to find and has wide access to its large car park. We booked in at the bar/reception and the young man told us to go and find ourselves a spot, which we did.

The five pitches are clearly marked, separated by neat fencing, have their own water and electric hook-up, picnic table and grassy area. The dustbins are “hidden” out of sight but do not take much finding.

Depending on which way you choose to site your van/motorhome you can either look over fields (and AFC Fylde football ground) or the back of the pub – not too difficult for us to choose which we wanted – the fields won!

A five-bar gate allows access to the children's play area and, via a rear entrance, to the toilets, shower and the pub/restaurant itself. At first we couldn’t find the shower, however, when we asked we were told it was behind a door marked “private”. It was clean and perfectly adequate.

The facilities are open from 7. 30 in the morning until 11. 30 at night.

The area is quiet and very pretty. Turning left out of the hotel, the walk into Warton (where there is a Spar, or something similar, selling basic foodstuffs, newspapers etc. , a pub that isn’t a patch on The Birley, a bus stop to Preston and a bus stop to Blackpool) is on the flat and extremely pleasant.

The weather was beautiful and local residents were out tending their gardens and everyone we passed spoke to us and many had time for a chat. Turning right, Wrea Green is a couple of miles away and is a lovely spot, well worth a visit.

A highlight for us one evening while sitting in the pub enjoying a drink, was watching the odd fighter aircraft from the nearby BAE Systems airfield at Warton taking off and landing. Not everyone’s cup of tea but a thrill for us.

The Birley Arms is extremely clean and provides excellent, reasonably priced, meals. All the staff are friendly and helpful and the owners are charming.

We stayed here over the weekend brilliant

Read all the negative reviews and don't agree

We nearly didn't book because of them. The staff were very helpful showed us exactly were everything was. If you want a cl then its exactly that, we, ve got a 24 foot caravan and we fitted on with no problem the toilets are the pub toilets were lovely and clean.

We had a meal in the pub and it was excellent.

We also have a dog which we took to lythem st anns where there is a beach 5 min drive, will be going back soon hopefully to have more than 1 night.

We stopped At The Birley Arms For 2 nights on the 1st October to the 3rd October 2010. When we arrived we were not shown where to go and were not shown were all the facilities were.

Dogs were welcome but just no dog walks in the surrounding area you had to get in the car and travel. On the Saturday night a marquee was erected by the caravan site where a wedding reception was held on the evening with a very loud band who went on to 12 midnight. If we had been warned of this we could have made other arrangements, people were coming and going till 3.30pm in the morning making noise and disturbing my dogs

When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at the well kept pitches each with its own grassed area and picnic bench, As said in previous reviews, the pitches are very small and give a 'hemmed in' feeling with high fences dividing them.

We weren't shown or told about any of the facilities and had to find the bins and waste water areas ourselves, also we were told that the toilets were only open during pub hours, and there wasn't a shower?

The noise from the hotels air conditioning unit was a real nuisance over night and considering we had our windows and rooflight closed due to the bad weather, was maybe not as bad as it could have been!

Also we were troubled by a constantly barking dog from a neighbouring property.

The gate from the pubs play area and garden had no sign restricting access to the camping area and on Saturday night we had children from the playground running around the caravans.

I know all this sounds very negative, but really its not that bad!

I would visit again, but not for any more than a weekend.
