General

  • Great location in the middle of Lancashire
  • Family-friendly site with plenty of activities
  • Within easy reach of the Forest of Bowland, Pennines and Lake District

You might fall over when you clap an eye on Beacon Fell View, a family-friendly park in 30 acres of landscaped parkland and with rather spectacular views over the Ribble Valley.

Slap bang in the middle of Lancashire, the park is conveniently placed for day trips to Blackpool but within easy reach of the Forest of Bowland, the Pennines, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales. Golf, fishing and wonderful walks are all available close by too. And did you know that the Ribble Valley is the wealthiest area of Lancashire and has the smallest population but the biggest area? Plenty of room then for enriching activities without rubbing shoulders with hundreds of other holidaymakers…

Firmly family-friendly, Beacon Fell View keeps a considerate eye on many little (free) touches to jazz up your hol: the indoor heated pool, tennis, paddling pool for little squirts and entertainment four nights a week in high season won’t cost you a red cent. Even more enhancing for knackered parents, you can send the heirs and heiresses off to the free kids’ club while you catch a match on Sky Sports or down a drink in the adults-only lounge bar. (A family bar is available on site too.)

Amenities include hot showers (also free), a covered dishwashing area, launderette and a food shop; and kids can additionally live large at the indoor and outdoor play areas, crazy golf and arcade with amusements and pool table. Pitchwise, all is level, grassy and within five minutes’ walk of reception; guests have access to water points and can park their car by their pitch.

Supplywise, nearby Longridge has a well-stocked farmers’ market, a couple of supermarkets, two decent pubs serving good food and – quids in again for the kids – an outdoor adventure centre with everything from water orbs to fencing.

This site is a member of Hagans Leisure group.

Excellent site, mainly clean facilities, level pitches for camper van 08/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Good views and only 15 minutes walk into Longridge, which was an interesting small town. Staff friendly and helpful. Toilets;- male and female both clean.
    We only stayed a weekend and it was beautiful weather so our walk and the views were relaxing.

    Disliked: 

    Clearly some campers had sent their children to do the washing up and the sinks were blocked with food and dirty water. Also they had missed out on scraping breakfast into a bin and it was covered with wet rice crispies. We pointed this out and the cleaner changed the bin-sack but did not clean the outside so it still looked minging.

Nice site with fantastic staff and club house. PITCHES NEED INVESTMENT 01/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The staff and club hose.
    Very clean toilets and showers.

    Disliked: 

    The pitches are so small I had to monover my caravan up a muddy grass banking to get past another caravan tow hitch.

    Some caravans are allowed to pitch as they like others are made to have tow bar on the center of the pitch. This makes some big and some very small pitches.

    The pitches are uneven and falling away at the rear making leveling very difficult.

    The astoturf football pitch gets very muddy.

Local attractions

Beacon Hill Country Park and the Forest of Bowland are mere minutes away by car and both have miles of walking routes across a range of landscapes including woodland, hills and farmland. Climb to the top of Beacon Hill to see landmarks in all directions including Belvoir Castle, Lincoln Cathedral, the hills of the Peak District and the steam trains of the Great Central Railway from Loughborough, Woodhouse and Quorn.

Said to be the inspiration for Tolkien’s Middle Earth (which makes us want to furry foot it there immediately), the Ribble Valley is equally lush and varied in landscape and activities including the 70-mile path the Ribble Way, shopping in towns such as Clitheroe or munching one’s way around the Ribble Valley Food Trail to pick up Lancashire produce or pick wild garlic in the woods. The River Ribble is a big hook for anglers landing chub, barbel, trout and salmon; in the Forest of Bowland, the north-west’s biggest fly fishery at Stocks Reservoir has four and a half miles of shoreline to cast off from.

If your little gems are naturally inclined, take them along to nearby Brockholes Nature Reserve and let them ponder how the Visitor Village there floats on the lake. There are regular reserve events for toddlers upwards including dawn chorus walks, school holiday clubs and an annual vintage fair.

More nature, wizard scenery and activities/attractions for all ages are available at the Yorkshire Dales, the Pennines and the Lake District, where you’ll also find museums on everything from classic cars to pencils; piles of National Trust houses, estates and gardens; first-class foodie establishments and days out for sporty sorts of all inclinations.

City day trips are in all directions too: the kids’ eyes will light up with a trip to Blackpool, its Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle Waterpark, the biggest indoor waterpark in the UK. Historic Lancaster Castle is the finish point of the newly developed 51-mile Lancashire Witches 400 Walk from Barrowford, based on the route the accused Lancashire witches are said to have taken from Pendle. And for shopping, the Trafford Centre and Liverpool One of Manchester and Liverpool respectively should empty your wallet nicely…
