General

  • Child-friendly site close to Blackpool
  • Farm shop selling meat, free-range eggs and essentials
  • Campfires allowed: buy wood, charcoal and disposal barbecues on site

As you might guess from those crackingly amusing site pics, near Preston is a working farm with quite a few animal inhabitants on site...

Let the kids loose at the visiting area where they can feed the animals or pedal the tractors in the play area; seating is here too for grownups to sink down onto. And it's all less than seven miles from the sights and lights of Blackpool: we hear that's pretty popular with the kids too.

Also on offer at this small farm is a farm shop selling milk, bread, bacon, sausages, beef burgers, free-range eggs, firewood for the campfire, ice-cream and hot and cold drinks. Disposable barbecues and charcoal are also available.

Restaurants and shops are within a quarter of a mile and a service station with a shop is 200 yards away.

Please note

A charge of £1 applies for the use of shower.

    Lovely,small campsite, with a few farm animals in the next field. Ideal for visiting Blackpool and surrounding areas.

    Disliked: 

    Only two toilets and one shower which is £1 for five minutes. Time starts from when you put money in, not when you start the shower.

    Little farm and play area. Good amount of space for pitch. Facilities were clean. Nice staff welcome upon arrival.

    Grass was quite long. There's only 1 shower for the site and 2 toilets. Bins were overflowing at one stage but were eventually emptied.

A small, basic but excellent site with good facilities on site. 05/06/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Mark M. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass trailer tent or tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Loved it, stayed for 4 nights. Very relaxed site. Loved the camp fires, the farm shop and the petting zoo. Loved that it's only a small and quiet site. Only 10 min from Blackpool attractions. Plenty of other shops and amenities within 5 mins of the site.

    Disliked: 

    A really noisy and annoying group (2 families) with 10 obnoxious kids turned up on our last night, the adults were still making noise past 1 a.m. and the kids were up making noise at 6 a.m.! Not the fault of the site though, they were just scum.

    The site was great for the children there was a little play area and they could walk round the farm and see the animals.

    Disliked: 

    There was only 1 toilet and run out of loo roll so take your own! You also have to pay for the shower.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The popular tourist places of Blackpool, Fleetwood and Lytham St Annes are all less than seven miles from . We think the kids will probably fancy Blackpool first:... just a few options are the Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower, Blackpool Zoo, the Sea Life Centre and the Sandcastle Waterpark.

Fleetwood has a quieter vibe than Blackpool and is well worth a look for a day trip, as is the resort of Lytham St Annes with a good stretch of sand, sand dunes and the Lytham St Annes Local Nature Reserve.

Closer to home, a public footpath runs from the farm into town, and a leisure centre is just three miles away.

Must see

  • Blackpool Illuminations (6.3 miles)
  • The Blackpool Tower (6.4 miles)
  • Central Pier (6.4 miles)
