General

  • Insulated pods 15 minutes' drive from Blackpool city centre
  • Carp 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 Fishing and Camping, associated with Fylde Trout Fishery, to loll in a luxury 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 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.

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

    Everything. Run by very nice and helping people. Very clean pods, grass area and toilets. Lake next to it was really nice to walk around. Very relaxing family environment. Free fire pit at every pod. Just loved out weekend.

    I booked this for my Mum and Dad's wedding anniversary and Dad's birthday. At the time of booking I asked for a nice pod to make it more special for them so I would like to say a massive thank you! They loved their pod which was closest to the lake and they had a fabulous time and haven't stopped going on about it! Mum said the pod was nice and clean, beds were comfortable and she liked the little lantern. They said it was lovely to wake up and be able to see the lake. They also said check in was so easy so thank you for making this a memorable experience for them. They will definitely be back and I might come along the next time! Thanks once again.

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.
