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 for contrasting campers. 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, we 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 the heart of 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, loos 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.

loved pods + the laid back atmosphere.Main lodge had great facilities 08/11/2016

Reviewer's country: Spain Rebecca B. Confirmed

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Loved the pods and were big enough to sleep two adults and two teenagers if you take air beds. The environment was very relaxed and the main lodge catered well providing hot water bottles, free hot choc, tea, coffee etc....there were vending machines and games and it was cosy. Ten mins drive from Blackpool so great location for seeing the lights.

    Disliked: 

    Could have been a little bit cleaner. Under the sofas in the lodge needed a sweep round but it made no difference to the enjoyment of our stay - maybe being picky but we did notice.

From the manager...

Hello,
Thank you for your kind review and I'll hope to see you again soon.
Many thanks,
Alex
P.S. We have given the main lodge a good once over (especially under the sofas) and do clean under them regularly so they are spotless now.

Staff friendley, site ok 02/09/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Steven L. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Nice friendly staff, very helpful. 2 fishing lakes. Country setting

    Disliked: 

    the camping pod was tired and needed Maintainance, the door was broken and had to be double locked just to close it over and the laminate floor was bubbled and had came away in places. The area outside my pod had cigarette stumps and bottle tops littering the floor. I couldn't be bothered moaning about it and just cleared them up myself.

    The 2 beds were tiny and as a family of 4 we struggled to sleep, my 4 year old some described it perfectly as 'squashy'. So I packed our things into the car at 3am and drove home. Certainly not for us

From the manager...

Hello,
Thanks for your review, we always appreciate feedback be it good or otherwise.
Sorry to hear you chose to leave early also.
The pod doors are made of wood and do occasionally change size when the weather changes. We do have a joiner re-fit them when need to make sure they all work ok, but apologies if we missed this one.
We do spend several thousand pound every year on the upkeep of the pods, from varnishing, to painting, and everything in-between.
We do pay close attention to litter as well but again sorry if we've missed the mark on this occasion.
The size of the Pods is subjective as one of the above reviews says they were comfortable with 2 adults and 2 teenagers, but everybody is different and we respect that our site might not be for everyone.
Thanks again for the feedback though.
Kind regards,
Alex

A wonderful nights stay at Stanley Villa Farm 03/08/2016

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Gemma A. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Camping pod (2 adults and 2 children)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved our little pod, it was so cosy and a bonus that it had an actual bed. Many of the pods we've looked at just come with floor space. The man who came to greet us (Adam I think?) was so welcoming and helpful. Our little collie Lola loved camping with us too :) would definitely return here again but for two nights this time.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!

Hello,

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)
