You'll find reasons aplenty why this park is proving pretty popular with those seeking to pitch up in the north west: its position is perfect, its vibe relaxed, and its team very friendly indeed.
Poplar Grove Farm Caravan Park is a 160-acre working family farm, just 12 miles from Blackpool for those who like illuminating hols, and halfway between Lancaster and Preston for city sightseers. Even closer (and filled with pubs and restaurants), the old market town of Garstang is a couple of miles away, lying on the River Wyre: river fishing ahoy…
And for hikers, bikers and scenic view seekers, the unspoiled countryside of the Forest of Bowland and vistas of the Bowland Fells can be reached within 11 miles – or take yourself out into the surrounding Lancashire countryside: miles of walks and bike trails are all around.
All guests have access to a modern toilet block with two showers and two toilets for both ladies and gents; the site also has a chemical disposal point.
Open from 04/07/2020 to 01/11/2020

From the M6, exit at Junction 32, take the M55 west and at the first roundabout, take the third exit onto Garstang Road heading north. Upon reaching Garstang, take a left on to Longmoor Lane and after passing the Kirkland Baptist Chapel, take a left on to Humblescough Lane. We are located at the end of Humblescough Lane. Turn right at the end of the road, then turn left after 50 metres for Poplar Grove Farm Caravan Park.
Garstang (the world's first Fairtrade Town, food fact fans) is a few minutes' drive or two miles' walk from Poplar Grove and comes with seven pubs and three restaurants; have a duke too at the ruins of 15th-century Greenhaugh Castle overlooking the town.
The village of Scorton three miles from base has a pub, garden centre, café, and restaurant: if you're around during the May bank holiday, roll along to the Bike and Barrows Festival and the Scorton Music Festival for wheelbarrow racing, sheep racing and other shenanigans.
To the east of Garstang, the old hunting ground of the Forest of Bowland is now an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty landscaped by moorland, fells and valleys, with endless opps for walking, cycling, fell running and wildlife watching (not all at once, and look out for the hen harriers..). The Bowland Visitor Centre, with info on the area's activities and events, is in Beacon Fell Country Park.
A 20-minute drive will land you at either Blackpool (south east) or Lancashire's county town of Lancaster (north), with a fair good time to be had at the former and a load of historical sightseeing available at the latter. Preston is about 25 minutes' drive south.
To investigate a bit further afield, the watery wonders of the Lake District are about an hour's drive away.
