Excellent stay in family pod 18/07/2016

  • Liked: 

    Lovely stay here at kneps farm holiday park. 2 adults and 2 children ( 8 and 6) had a comfortable break here in a family pod. Pods were clean and warm. Childrens play park well kept.Toilets/Showers were spotless. The site itself was quiet and close to the wyre estuary so perfect for walks and fun at playpark. Brilliant being so close to blackpool but far enough away to get some peace at the end of a busy day. The staff were friendly and helpful providing information on local attractions and discounts for some blackpool attractions when tickets bought in store.

    Disliked: 

    The only fault is that there is a factory of some sorts nearby that you can hear whirring away at the dead of night also the wifi access is a bit hit or miss but these things did not impact negatively on our break.
