General

  • Insulated pods 15 minutes' drive from Blackpool city centre
  • Trout fishery/lake on site surrounded by wildlife and trees
  • Lodge with wetrooms, kitchen, games room, showers, loos and TV

Decisions can be tricky sometimes. Do you go for a holiday near the bright lights of the city... or choose to get away from it all and chill in the countryside?

Do both, sensible sorts will say – you’re on holiday, after all. So amble your way over to Stanley Villa Farm Camping Associated with Fylde Trout Fishery, to loll in a luxury camping pod yet be only 15 minutes’ drive from the busy centre of Blackpool; it’ll be an illuminating decision.

The pods at this glamping site are in Lancashire’s rural Fylde area: you can overlook the lake with a glass of wine and a barbecue while the sun goes down, or sit dreamily all day with rod in hand: the lake has rainbow and brown trout of 2lbs and over to land, and is surrounded by wildlife and native trees. All very serene and peaceful, but still a quick hop to Blackpool’s beaches and nightlife.

Stanley Villa pods are fully insulated, come with two beds and mattresses and have a battery-powered lantern. Power sockets to keep everything charged are in the Lakeside Lodge, where there’s also a kitchen, common room, up-to-date sparkling clean showers, toilets and three wetrooms.

The nearby café has free delivery to the site for lazy breakfasts and lunches, and a traditional pub with large beer garden, the Eagle and Child, is within walking distance.

    We loved our overnight stay in the pod and my children, 3 and 7 loved playing with other children on the grass in front of the pods. The facilities were good and the communal lodge was very welcome in the rain! We will definitely be staying again.

    Disliked: 

    The bathrooms and music being played until midnight - keeping us awake

From the manager...

Hello - it was nice to meet your family and thank you for giving us 6 stars still.
I'm sure you must have enjoyed several aspects of the site, such as the Pods and the customer service (which it looks like you scored us highly on).
In terms of the bathrooms - I'm not sure quite what you're referring to as your review doesn't say - they generally get rated very highly - especially for a camping site.
They are a few years old now and are possibly ready for a refurbishment over the next couple of years - but we do work hard to keep them clean and tidy.
The music I believe you heard was from a nearby event (possibly the Army camp as they have summer events).
I do patrol the site every night myself and haven't had any issues from anyone playing music, but apologies in any case.
Thanks again for the feedback - we do always appreciate it and take it on board, be it good or otherwise.
Many thanks - Alex

    Loved how secluded it was, and the fact each pod had its own little fire you could buy wood for and sit beside. It was a perfect relaxing destination for the weekend.

    Disliked: 

    Have to buy the firewood and fire starters wasn’t expensive but personally think should be already set up upon arrival to make a more comforting touch.

From the manager...

Hello - thank you for your 10* review and for adding photos - it's very much appreciated and I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend with us - especially the campfire! Many thanks - Alex

Directions


From the M6 come off at Junction 32 and turn onto the M55 signposted Blackpool. Take Junction 3 signposted Kirkham and turn right at the roundabout onto the A585 heading for Fleetwood. After half a mile there is an Indian restaurant called the Ashiana. Take the immediate next left past the speed camera turning down Greenhalgh Lane, 150 yards after the Ashiana and 100 yards before a Shell petrol station. Go down Greenhalgh Lane until you reach a T-junction (after approximately 1 mile). Turn right and take the second left into the site entrance.

Local attractions

The area around Stanley Villa Farm has plenty to do for those who like the contemplative life, with heritage walks and bike rides around the coast, horse riding and kayaking, traditional country pubs to sample and several top golf clubs in Preston and the surrounding area.

For a less contemplative day or three out, Blackpool is bursting with things to do for podders of all ages: the most well-known attractions here are probably the beach and the Pleasure Beach theme park, with the Blackpool Illuminations lighting up the sky each year from late August/early September.

Once you’ve got the kids off the rides, take them along to gawk at the sharks and seahorses at the Sea Life Centre, splash down the slides at the Sandcastle Waterpark and take a wallaby walkabout at Blackpool Zoo; the famous Madame Tussauds on the Promenade should also be a hit.

Preston is also well worth a visit for a day trip for five museums, the Beacon Fell Country Park and go-karting at the docks; cruise along on a canal trip or go to the Cheeky Monkeys or Rascals play centres for a family day out.

A bit further afield, the county of Lancashire has the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Forest of Bowland, historic houses, theme parks and adventure parks all to explore, as well as the university city of Lancaster and the seafront at Morecambe Bay.

Must see

  • Blackpool Illuminations (5.6 miles)
  • The Blackpool Tower (5.7 miles)
  • Central Pier (5.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (13.0 miles)
