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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

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.
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.
