  • Peaceful and spacious wildlife haven in the smart Ashton Hall Estate
  • Lancaster city and the Forest of Bowland both within six miles
  • An 11-hole seaview golf course, woodland walks and fishing in the Lune
Rock up here for a restful retreat among the comely grounds of Ashton Hall Caravan Park… Within Ashton Hall’s extensive estate are an 11-hole golf course with spectacular seaward vista, as well as a garden centre and café, all bordered by ancient woodlands and the River Lune, and direct access to the Lancashire Coastal Way and the Lune Estuary Footpath. Your holiday days will surely fill up quickly with all there is to do around the locale too – if you manage to tear yourself away from the site, that is – as the Forest of Bowland, the Lune Estuary and Lancaster city are all within six miles. On site, there's loads of room to wander around the grounds or in the adjoining forest for woodland walking routes, nature trails and cycle paths, many of which will take you from the site directly to the banks of the River Lune. On top of all this, the site takes pride in its sparklingly clean unisex toilet and shower facilities in a modern stone-built bathroom block with underfloor heating. The building includes an accessible bathroom/ family facility, a vanity area with washbasins, big mirrors and a hairdryer, a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers, and a covered washing-up area – like the site itself, the amenities block is safely secure and accessed via a secure key code. A local pub and restaurant lies within a mile of the estate, and Lancaster is three miles away.

Lune fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: Good clean toilet block.

Disliked: Terrible pitches which need re covering or re building, too narrow, they were like mud baths, they looked 20 years old. We paid a premium price of £45 per night which was certainly overpriced.

Lune fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: The shower/ toilet facility very clean.

Disliked: We originally booked for 3 nights Fri sat sun, but had to leave on the Sat as we were very disappointed with the state of the hardstanding pitches. Basically the hardstanding pitches are not well maintained nor are they wide enough to accommodate a decent path around the van when it is parked. We were straight onto the waterlogged grass and into boggy mud from the van doors. I understand the weather conditions and if we had been informed the site was waterlogged, the decision to stay would have been ours . However the price for this poor standard of a hardstanding pitch is very poor value . I have never stayed on a hardstanding pitch which had no reasonable area to also walk round the van. This site is receptionless and the owners tel no is the only contact available. which states it is for emergency or problems. I initially contacted him on the day we were leaving , but I am still waiting for a response from him, he has not had the courtesy to respond to my issue.

Lune fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: Peaceful adults only site

Disliked: Booked for 6 nights over Easter on hardstanding, fully serviced pitch, £42 pn! (Booked through pitch up so they obviously add their fee!) Hardstanding pitch with grassed area alongside. Site was a mud bath after much heavy rain. Hardstanding was long and narrow and overgrown with grass and moss making it boggy and no option but to walk on this to get into the van. This led to wet and muddy floor inside with wet footwear and paw prints (in spite of entrance mats which became wet very quickly!) The pitch was waterlogged with deep ruts in the ground where previous unit had driven over the grassed area. There was a tap between pitches serving two units, each with own outflow and control. Unfortunately my water hose didn’t quite reach so had to fill manually with Jerry can so minus points for that as I expected the supply to be on my unit pitch for that price! A fully serviced pitch should be just that! There was a very small drain under the tap which I guess is the grey waste as no evidence of anywhere else to dispose of same. (Explained perhaps the deep ruts where previous campers had driven over grass!) There is a great chemical waste closet behind the toilet/ shower block with water to rinse cassette so that gets a + and the toilet and shower facilities are good. Underfloor heating so lovely and warm, male and female served at opposite ends with three toilets and three showers (including a family sized one) in each plus a large disabled room too. Plenty of hot water on 20second push button cycle. Only downside - toilets not cleaned nor toilet paper dispensers refilled in lady’s loos so only disabled loo had paper in which was used by able bodied and so ran out too! For £42 per night I expect more! Views over open countryside from each pitch but lots of tree work been done recently so what was obviously once a lovely woodland to look at is now a mess of felled trees and mud ruts. I’m sure this is good woodland management and the land will recover in time but it was a mess! On the plus side though, site owner is planting up lots of saplings and shrubs around the site so I’m sure it will be lovely in time to come. There is a path from the site that takes you directly to the Lancashire foot and cycle path with walks in either direction and lovely views over the Lune estuary to Glasson Dock one way and Lancaster the other. Visit the Dalton Arms in Glasson for lovely Steak & Ale pie! Lush! Overall I was disappointed with this site as not quite as advertised in terms of facilities on pitch and general state of it but not a lot the owner can do about the weather and I’m sure once things have dried out it will be much nicer. However, I’m not sure I would return given the price per night for what is really only a basic but larger CL type site.

Seafield fully-serviced hardstanding and grass touring pitch

Liked: Large pitches set in lovely woodland. Beautifully clean and warm facilities. The layout of the siite means you are not looking directly at another caravan but over the field towards the estuary. Access to the site is by keycode pad. There is a well stocked garden centre. A nine hole golf couse open to guests with a bar. A short walk along the coastal path brings you to the stork pub. Lancaster is a 5 minute drive, Garstang 10 minutes and Morecambe is a short distance away Hares, rabbits, young deer and sheep usually inhabit the field with lots of wild birds and fabulous birdsong. The site is quite sheltered from wind Its just so peaceful we love it here and have another 3 stays booked already.

Disliked: The grass at the side of the pitches was quite boggy but that couldnt be helped

Local attractions

Amble directly from the site to join the Lancashire Coastal Way walking trail and the Lune Estuary Footpath, accessible through the peaceful woodland bordering the grounds. Slightly further afield, the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is within easy reach by car at 16 miles, and a regular bus service runs direct from Ashton Estate in to Lancaster. Road and rail links from the city will take you to Cumbria and beyond too if you're using the site as a base for exploring the Lake District, Morecambe, or Blackpool, 50 minutes away by car. To be served with a slice of local history, the medieval Lancaster Castle, Ashton Memorial folly in Williamson Park and the city museums are all historic hotspots worth squeezing into any busy itinerary.
