General

City lights, city sights…and tranquil nature reserve? Canny caravanners can grab the best of both worlds at Marton Mere Holiday Village in Blackpool, set on its own lakeside nature reserve with park ranger station, yet a Mere three miles from the Pleasure Beach and bright lights of Blackpool.

You can even see Blackpool Tower from Marton Mere, which might be the closest you get to it given the jam-packed options on this Haven site: there are sports activities such as rollerblading, adventure golf, football coaching, fencing and archery (qualified coaches are on hand to ensure blades and bows are wielded safely). Young Bear Grylls in the making can get stuck into the wildly entertaining Nature Rockz activities run at the park where they can enjoy all sorts from bushcraft to building shelters, beachcombing to bug safaris. (Most activities are free but a small charge may apply to some.) And there’s a heated indoor pool with SplashZone and new Space Bowl flume (with an outdoor SplashZone for the kids too during summer); kids’ clubs with the Seaside Squad; the ShowBar for drinks and dancing, and day and night entertainment for all ages – we like the sound of the Summer Mania Wrestling and the family ‘wake ‘n’ shake’ sessions…

If your tastes are more reserved, the Marton Mere Local Nature Reserve on the edge of the park is a Site of Special Scientific Interest with habitats to explore beyond your berth: there are wetland, woodland and grassland spots among others, hosting an array of critters including dragonflies, bats and butterflies, or you could go undercover in one of the bird hides to spot soaring peregrines, merlins, owls and ospreys.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, the site has a café bar and grill with terrace on site to sup at for breakfast, lunch, dinner and essential snacks, a fish and chip shop – again for essential snacks – and a Spar for stocking up on freshly baked bread, barbecue nosh and other bits and bobs.

Local attractions

We’ll start off with Blackpool – assuming you make it off site for a day or two; as well as the famous Tower, shows, circus, autumn Illuminations and whirling around the rides on the Pleasure Beach, you can ogle the folk at Blackpool Zoo or the Sea Life Centre, get waxy at Madame Tussauds or make a splash at the Sandcastle Waterpark, the biggest indoor waterpark in the country.

If you’re out of energy after the SplashZone and Summer Mania Wrestling, more wrestful options in the area include gentle horseback cantering, angling for fish or linking up with the several golf courses around: Staining Lodge Golf Course is a mile and a half from Marton Mere and the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club is within a short drive (there’s a nature reserve here too).

Knights and hangers-on (parents) should have a ball at Chorley’s Camelot Theme Park, while younger adventurers will enjoy The World of Beatrix Potter at nearby Bowness or Farmer Parrs Animal World; if your youngsters are into their history – or going underground – there’s a good day out at Keswick’s Honister Slate Mine too.

The Lake District is also within easy reach: cruise along for a trip on Lake Windermere and a visit to the adventure playground, exhibitions and gorgeous gardens at the Lake District Visitor Centre, or have a puff on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Steam Railway along the banks of the River Leven.

The Forest of Bowland, Beacon Fell Country Park and the historic city of Lancaster can all be had within a Mere half hour drive.

Terms and conditions

Please read the park terms and conditions below and the Pitchup.com terms and conditions.

Additional terms

The holiday contract

A contract between you and Haven is made when Pitchup.com tells you your booking is confirmed.

The contract binds you and all the members of your party. It is your responsibility to ensure that all members of your party accept these terms and conditions of booking. Failure to disclose all relevant information or comply with these terms may lead to termination of the contract, and loss of the booking.

When making your booking you must let us know your unit type and the size as we cannot process the booking without this information.

If we change or cancel your booking

As an experienced and responsible operator, our aim is to provide all the services, facilities and entertainment as described in our brochure and on our website. Should it be necessary for us to make any major changes to your booking, or in exceptional circumstances cancel your booking, we will endeavour to advise you, and provide the following options:

1. A replacement holiday comparable or superior to the one booked; or
2. A replacement holiday together with the difference in price between the replacement holiday and the holiday booked; or
3. A full refund.

In addition to the above and provided it does not arise from circumstances beyond our control, we will also pay you compensation for any provable loss. Should a sole use event be booked subsequent to your reservation, in the interest of your holiday enjoyment, we reserve the right to cancel your booking and provide you with an alternative as outlined in this section.

Paying for your holiday

Please note all holidays not paid in full by due dates are at risk of being cancelled. Please note if your holiday is cancelled through non-payment by yourselves then the terms in the conditions of booking do not apply.

Limitation of liability

We accept responsibility for those arrangements of your holiday which are within our control, but we cannot accept liability for any injury, loss or damage suffered by you or any other member of your party, unless one of the following applies:

1. There was wilful default by us, our employees or agents
2. Death or personal injury was caused by the negligence of Haven Holidays, our employees or agents.

For all claims other than death or personal injury which result from the non-performance or improper performance of our contract, we will pay compensation that is reasonable in all circumstances. However, our liability to you is limited to the total cost of the holiday amount paid as per your final holiday invoice from Haven Holidays. Please notify any shortcomings or complaints to the Reception/Duty Manager immediately, so that they can be remedied. Claims may be reduced or rejected if we have not been given the opportunity to put matters right or investigate your concerns.

We do not allow gazebos, pup tents, awnings with annexes and sleeping in awnings.

We’ve designed our holidays with families and couples in mind. We do not accept bookings for stag or hen parties, solo travellers, single-sex or mixed parties of 3 or more people or any unaccompanied under 21s via Pitchup.com.

We welcome well trained dogs but we do not allow the following breeds: pit bull terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino and Fila Brasilieno plus any other type appearing to be bred for fighting. Where dogs are allowed they must always wear a collar and be kept on a lead under the control of a responsible adult.

The outdoor slash zone is open from the 22/05 to the 31/08.
