Stanley Villa Farm Fishing and Camping: Pods and campfires

General

  • Cute camping pods 15 minutes' drive from Blackpool town centre
  • Carp fishery/lake on site surrounded by wildlife and trees
  • Lodge with wetrooms, kitchen, showers and toilets

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 Fishing and Camping, to loll in a cosy camping pod and 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 carp to land, and is surrounded by wildlife and native trees. All very serene and peaceful, but still a quick hop from Blackpool’s beaches and attractions.

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 and common room, plus plenty of up-to-date sparkling clean showers and toilets and three wetrooms.

A café is nearby, and a traditional pub with large beer garden is within walking distance.

    Just arrived back form a long weekend at Stanley Villa Farm Fishing and Camping. The pods are small but as there were only two of us so they were fine. The beds were comfortable and we had an amazing sleep each night. The site is kept clean and tidy and the facilities in the main lodge are great. There are accessible wet rooms in the lodge with toilets and showers in but there are additional separate showers and toilets with steps available so there are plenty for everyone. We sat out each night and you could see all the campfires lit and the BBQ's going whilst the kids played on the green in the middle of all the pods which was lovely. It has a small shop on site where you can purchase or hire all your basic camping needs. Alternatively there is a garage with a Spar in and also an Aldi just down the road. The phone signal wasn't great and there is no wifi available (or none that we were made aware of) which is a shame, however it was quite nice to be unavailable for a few days if you wanted to be! The staff are very pleasant and helpful and the Manager popped by the pods every night to check everyone was okay before locking up - we thought this was lovely touch. It's just a few minutes from the main hub of Blackpool but so peaceful it feels like you're miles away. Thank you for your making our stay so pleasant.

    I would have given it 5 stars however the main fishing lake was closed and we had to use the alternative lake which is not yet finished and it was difficult to position yourself on the unfinished bank. I am conscious that the closed lake may be due to the lack of rain so it isn't a criticism of the site but with keen fishers in the family it really was one of the reasons we chose this site. We are looking forward to using this lake though when we stay next year.

    The site was very peaceful, well looked after and the staff were very friendly.

    The animal feeding was a nice experience for the kids.

    We stayed in a bell tent, which is the first tent I’ve been in that hasn’t leaked during typical British torrential rain. The log burner kept the tent lovely and warm.
    The bell tent area is very spacious which made it the perfect place for the kids in each tent to play together. In the evening this meant the adults could sit by the fire while all the kids entertained themselves.
    When it came to the noise cut off time (11pm), everybody stuck to the rule which made it a peaceful nights sleep. That is, until the morning bird orchestra started.

    Overall, a very enjoyable experience.
    A special thanks to Alex, a lovely chap that makes a good impression on the kids.

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