- Countryside park a couple of miles from Lytham
- Short drive to Blackpool and Preston
- Opposite Warton Aerodrome for daytime plane spotting
Bright lights, big city…and chill out, quiet country: both are up for grabs at Oaklands Caravan Park in Lancashire, set in peaceful countryside at the village of Warton and a couple of miles from Lytham with pubs, public transport and shops, yet just a short drive from the cities of Blackpool and Preston.
Bring your binoculars too: Oaklands is opposite Warton Aerodrome with opportunities to spot jets soaring overhead – considerately flying during the day only, so no issues with night time engine noise.
Facilities at the park include a launderette, washing-up area and well-maintained showers and toilets. Barbecues are allowed.
The friendly Oaklands owners will do their utmost to make sure everyone in the family has a quality stay, even canine guests: the park is pooch-friendly.
Find nearby sites with availability…
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Travelling north on the M6, take junction 31 to Preston to the A583 toward Blackpool to the A584. Turn left toward Warton and Lytham. We are located on the right, approximately 1 mile from the second roundabout in the village of Warton.
Travelling south on the M6, take junction 32 to M55 and junction 3 to Kirkham. Take the A585 towards Kirkham through Wrea Green and turn left on the roundabout at the village green. Continue straight on until you hit traffic lights, then turn right. We are half a mile on the right in the village of Warton, past the petrol station.
Golfers can swing their clubs in style with four courses and links in the local area, including the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, a host course for the British Open and the Ryder Cup.
If this isn’t quite the kids’ cup of tea, the seaside resort of Lytham St Annes should be up their sandy street, with donkey rides, sand dunes to roll down and the Lytham St Annes Local Nature Reserve to explore – it was the first designated nature reserve in Lancashire and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Oaklands can be used as a base for exploring several towns and cities in Lancashire: you could croon to the Eric Morecambe statue on the seafront in Morecambe Bay, clink around the prison museum in Lancaster (if this scares the kids too much, there’s a maritime museum to bring them to as well), or chug along to the shops, theatres, cinemas and the Ribble Steam Railway at Preston.
You’ll also be within reach of cantering, hiking or biking in the Forest of Bowland, the Beacon Fell Country Park or the lush landscapes of the Lake District.
But natch the kids will be begging for Blackpool too: as well as the annual autumn illuminations, there’s enough to do here to keep them cartwheeling for ages – the famous Pleasure Beach theme park, Blackpool Beach and Blackpool Tower, and flying down the flumes at the Sandcastle Waterpark, the biggest indoor waterpark in the UK, should do for starters.
Once they’ve dried off, a trip to Blackpool Zoo will keep them goggle-eyed, with over a thousand animals as well as a huge playbarn – and squishy sofas to sink into for the big folk…
