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.

    Good basic camp site, with friendly owners. Small selection of animals that will entertain families with children. Also they have a shop that sell a little of everything at a very reasonable price for those inevitable little things you forget. All in all a really good stay.

    Owner was very nice. Felt like staying in family's garden. Safe site for children, quiet at night and camping right next to the animals which the kids loved. Amenities where clean.

    Disliked: 

    More toilets/showers would be better and not enough electric pitches.

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)
